Happy Monday! Here's to the beginning of another week...I had a wonderful weekend with my family and enjoyed my Mother's day tremendously. I hope all you other mothers did as well!!

Since today is Monday it is time for another Product Spotlight at the Stamp and Create store. The Product Spotlight is Whiff of Joy(that means they are on sale for 25% off .You can find them all -->here<— and Lacey has the brand new releases: Get Well and the Aladdin kit and they will be 10% off!! ).
I don't know about you, but I just adore these images!! I had so much fun creating a card for this week using Shopping Willow. Lacey has a lot of stunning images to choose from her store. You won't want to wait to long cause these, I am sure, are going to fly off the shelves.

I decided to make an easel card using the Friday Sketchers Sketch for this past weekend. The dp is Basic Grey Wisteria. I water colored the image and popped her up on dimensionals. She is framed with the Scalloped Edge Frame Spellbinders. I plan on enclosing a gift card holder with money for my nieces graduation.

Stamps: Whiff Of Joy Shopping Willow, Penny Black Bubbly
Paper: Basic GreyWisteria dp, So Saffron, White CS, Bashful Blue
Accessories: Fancy Tags Spellbinders, Scalloped Edge Frame Spellbinders, Mini Gypso -Ivory, Sunshine Prima Cameo Roses, Kaiser Craft snow white pearls, teardrop lace, flower charm, and large star spacer, MS Shell border punch, ZVA Creative Blue Flourish
*All these items are available at Stamp and Create except the MS Shell border punch, ZVA Creative Flourish and the Card stock or water color paper


Flutter by Wednesdays- angel, butterfly or fairy
Sentimental Sunday's- For someone special ( card for my niece)
Paper Play: digi or stamp and bling
Crafts and Me - Sparkle ( I used stickles around my frame but it does not show up well in the picture unless you click on it and even then you don't see all the sparkle)

Lacey also added a monthly challenge that began last week and ends on May 28! This month's challenge is to use ribbon on your card.
but you also must
~ use a stamp that is available at Stamp and Create.
(you don't have to purchase the stamp from her, there are so many different companies that Lacey carries in the store including Penny Black, Greeting Farm, Wags n Whiskers, Stampavie, Kraftin Kimmie, My Heart Stamps for you, CC Designs, High Hopes, and Whiff of Joy that it is hard to not to join us!!)
~ Must be a follower of the Stamp and Create Blog

~and for this challenge...use RIBBON
