Sending Love at Easter!

Our Daily Bread designs stamps, Happy Spring, designed by Grace Nywening
Hello friends!

 I have a fun and "touchable" card to share today.... just in time for Easter!  This set is part of Our Daily Bread designs March release, and it's called Happy Spring.  I just love pussywillows!  I have such fond memories of my mom picking a bouquet of these every spring and I would just love to rub my fingers over them.  They are so soft, just like a fuzzy stuffed animal.  So I tried to recreate that touchable reel with Polar White Flower Soft.  My colors are Sage Shadow, Craft, and White.  I stamped on craft and bleached my image, colored lightly with Copics then added the Flower Soft.  My embossing folder is SU! and I used a Spellbinders Back to Basics Tag for my sentiment.  I also made a twine flower and adhered the egg that comes with the set on to it after cutting it out.  Quick and easy, but I love how it came out!


 I hope you liked my card today, and that spring is coming soon to where you live.  We are supposed to see wintry weather this week but I think after that, we should be rounding the corner into spring!  I am ready this year!  It's been a rough winter for us and the promise of new life comes with gratitude for sure!!! 

Please don't forget that ODBD will be having it's 5th anniversary celebration this month, and especially from Mar 10 - 18!  Don't miss the blog hop beginning on Mar. 16th! These are always some of our most popular sets, so we hope we'll see you then!

Have a blessed week!

Beautiful card, the flower soft makes the pussy willows look so real. We had them in our yard as a child too, memories.

SO pretty! Grace, you are so creative, my friend - love coming here to see your beautiful creations, and to hear your music. Such an inviting, comforting blog you have :) I've had a pretty rough last 10 days or so, and this is just what I needed! Hugs...

Oh Grace this is beautiful - love how you have added the texture to the pussy willows.
We are now in autumn, but it is very dry where I am - crunchy grass dry!!
