You should have arrived here at my blog from Jenny Stucky's blog. If you didn't and have gotten lost on the way, don't worry...there's a list of participents on the Lawnscaping blog. Just head there to get back on track :)

Well, when I think of spring, I think of flowers starting to bloom and the birds singing sweetly in the early morning light....


I just puffy heart L O V E Lawn Fawns new Gnome Sweet Gnome set. Flamingos are my thing. I even loved flamingos before they got all retro and cool again (even have a tattoo of one...shhh). I stamped and fussy cut some clouds the ran them through my Cuttle bug for dry embossing and finished them off with a little dusting of chalk. I stamped the "flower" stems using the Lawn Fawn Petiete Florals set, then masked them off and stamped the grass from Gnome Sweet Gnome in 3 shades of green ink. I then stamped (using masks again) the flamingos for my flowers. The fussy cut birds flying around are from Gnome Sweet Gnome also. The string for the bow on the center flamingo is from Lawn Fawn also...I saved it from the packaging when I got my order! I love how they tie the sets together with a pretty little bow :)

I hope you liked my card, and hope you have had a great time joining us for the hop. Are you worn out yet...only 6 more to go. So grab ya a cuppa Joe and prepare to see some more wonderful creations!! Now off you go to visit with Ayana Posadas!
