Hope Seed Co.--PPA243

March 16, 2015

It was such a beautiful day in GA!  I absolutely love days like this before the humidity and pollen arrive.  I went outside for a while and then found some time to sneak in my craft room.  I have been gone for a week, so it felt great to be back in my little room! 

I am playing along with the Pals Paper Arts Challenge.  The colors this week are Soft Sky, Pink Pirouette and Pistachio Pudding.  These are such 'springy' colors, so, I tried to think of something that would make us feel like Spring has arrived.

I am featuring a stamp set that I just received from W Plus9 Designs.  It is called, "Hope Seed Co."  I just love all the stamps in the set.  The small seed packets remind me of my Daddy.  Every year he planned a huge garden.  He would have the seed catalogs out and decided what to purchase.  He always planted a lot of flowers for my Mom.  I loved looking at all of the packages and helping him plant the seeds.  

I used Copic Markers to color the flowers and the leaves.  The seed pack and banner were fussy cut.  I made a small envelope with my envelope maker for the seed card.  It can be removed and placed in the envelope.  

I added a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to add some bling.  I just love the way it looks.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I love to hear from you, so please leave a comment.

Happy Stampin'!
