Happy Hump Day Everyone!! I can't believe half the week is over already.  Time is just flying by.  Today is a nice sunny day and it makes you feel like spring is on it's way.  I just love bright colors at this time of year since it just makes it more cheerful even when you are suffering with the winter dulldrums.  For that reason, I just had to play with yesterday's CC419 color challenge at Splitcoast Stampers.  Karen chose the colors: 
More Mustard
Tempting Turquoise
Daffodil Delight

I used a sneak peak from Our Daily Bread Designs : Finch Collage to be released on Monday, April 1 and the Antique labels and Designs stamps with the matching custom Antique Labels and Border dies. I embossed the image with the Basket Weave embossing folder from Stampin Up. All cardstock is also SU.

My next creation is one I made for Janette's gorgeous sketch, SC429, today and since I am just loving all the new Scripture, Quote, and Sentiment collections at Our Daily Bread Designs, I had to use one today.

Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs: Scripture Collection 10 Let the Earth Rejoice 
Papers: Bo Bunny Little Miss, groovy guava, bitter chocolate
Dies: Elegant Ovals Spellbinders Floral and classic Ovals
Accessories: Green Silk ribbon from May Arts

I hope you are having a great  week and that more blessings are bestowed on you in the days to come!!  Thanks for stopping by!! I would love you to leave a comment so I knew you were here.

gorgeous creations Chris!
Hope you are doing well!
We're still homeschooling, though we will be finishing up by mid-april! I'll be taking a bloggy break to enjoy the Easter holiday & springtime happenings. We're planning a large garden this season & I'm looking forward to growing herbs for the first time and preserving as much as possible for our food pantry. Does your family garden?
Easter Blessings!
