True Blue Hope Note…

Today’s post is another Hope Note designed for the local women’s breast cancer center.  This Painted Petals stamp set certainly has come in handy for me since it arrived.  I can’t count how many cards I’ve created with it.


Blue and green is my favorite color combination…it’s so soothing.  I’d have all blue flowers in my yard if I knew how to do it.  Wouldn’t that be gorgeous?  Maybe a little white here and there would be nice.

That flower you see peeking into the photo is one of the blooms from the Build A Bouquet Kit in the new Occasions Catalog.  Got it finished and I’m planning a kit class next month to make it.  That should be lots of fun…we can make our own spring!

Would you like the Stuff ‘N Digits for this little notecard?  Here you go…

There’s one more Hope Note to show you and then we will move on to some different type of projects and some new and fun techniques.  So I hope you will stop by each day and that you will always find some inspiration for your own creations.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…


Hope you are having the best day ever…we are STILL having wonderful spring-like weather.

Get inky…Be HaPpY!
