Happy Monday Everyone!!  I hope you all had a great weekend!!  I know mine went well.  Yesterday it poured all day and we had lots of flooding but atleast it did not flood into our house and the temperatures were like spring (50 degrees F.)

Today I have a creation to share with you that is made for two challenges.  The first is Sunday's With Crissy which is to use stitching (faux or real) on your creation. I decided to use real stitching...my fave!
For the challenge there will be five free digi's given to one lucky challenge participant who will be chosen by Random.org at the end of the month! You may now use images from any company and still be included in the draw for the blog candy prize! Those who use one of Crissy's images, either from her rubber or digital collections will be entered twice in the draw. But please respect the rule of no more than three entries per month. Otherwise your entries could be deleted. 


Today also begins another challenge at Stamp and Create!
This Month's challenge is:Spring

The prize is:
**You are welcome to use any stamp for our challenges, but please make sure to adhere to the challenge theme and mention our challenge in your post (no back linking).  This is a month long challenge, so you have plenty of time to join in.

 
I used Easter Blessings from Wags n Whiskers ( this is available as rubber or digi) illustrated by Crissy Armstrong which I  colored with copics.  The designer paper is from Die Cuts with a View Home collection and Stampin Up Winter Green (retired). The gold glitter paper is American Crafts. I also used  Ivory May Arts Silk RibbonIvory prima Fairy tale rose, blue ZVA Creative Roses, lace (from a RAK), Lacey Circles Spellbinders, Fancy tags Spellbinders, Martha Stewart Loops Border Die, Martha Stewart Twig punch, Spellbinders Floral Accents, Provocraft Swirls Embossing folder and Recollections buttons.
