CTD 272 - thank you- with love!!

Happy Happy Wednesday... WOW this month is flying by... guess that happens when I just started my Christmas shopping last WE!! Only on Saturday but, we began at 3:30p and I was home at 9:30p- long mall trip for me!!

This week Broni picked the colors and inspiration pic... I used both this time... a little spring inspiration... I'm ready!! Honestly, I should be ashamed to say that when I know there are so many parts of the country being blasted with snow and ice... but, I'm a warm weather girl!

My card....

Aren't those painted Ball jars fabulous!! I used a set of images and dies from Clear and Simple stamps that I bought last spring and never inked them up... shame on me! I used Well Preserved Jars Medium, Well Preserved Jars Extras, and the coordinating Well Preserved Jars Medium dies. Stamped the jar outlines in gray and then added the "insides" with another image in the different colors. The images are a little crackled looking just -how perfect is that!! Colored the flowers with copics- cut a slit and inserted.

For more inspiration, you'll want to stop by and visit the other team members' blogs as well as our talented guestie - Cindy Lawrence at  One Happy Stamper!! Thanks Cindy for joining us!!
