Boys love spring too!

Hi there Ladies and Gents,

Hope all is well! Oh, if you're looking for the Pastel Colors Challenge at Docerela Creations Go HERE

Today and I am stopping by to play in a few fun challenges and give you a little sneak peek of the new Docerela Creations stamp set that is going to be released April 5!!!

Ok, so one of my latest addictions, because I realize I have a very addictive personality when it comes to scrapbooking. I totally fall head over heels with things and feel as I need a ton...hmm like mist, veneers, washi, paper pads....blah blah blah....but this newest addiction is to the cute images from The Greeting Farm!
I'm kind of shy to play along with their blog challenge because these ladies who color GF images have like mad skills at using Copics, Prisma colors and whatnot to color these cute little boys and girls! But anyway, I'm going to play along anyway because it's all about having fun! And I did have fun because I tried something I've never done before- An Easel Card! I have always been intimidated by fancy cards, but I watched a couple of tutorials and it was easy breezy! I really like how it turned out and I was super excited to use NEW stamps!
Most of the Easter/Spring projects that are showcased are usually with pinks and soft colors such as that, but as the mom of 2 boys I know that boys like to celebrate spring too, so I used this gorgeous Heidi Swapp line to make a more boyish spring card! So's the fun little spring card that I made:

Ok, first...take a look at this little sneak peek from the new Docerela Creations stamp set! I love the font and I'm telling you Docerela Stamps work so fabulously with my new favorite Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink!!!
