Springtime flowers

 Do you subscribe to my blog by e-mail?   If you do please sign up as a regular follow 
as I have read that this is going away, more details on my friend, Donna's blog.
Some anemone's from IO that I stamped and made cards with recently:
\My mom and I finally had a day out shopping at a local craft store and
she bought this stamp set and some other goodies as a belated  b-day
present for me, so this first card, colored with Copics was sent to her:

The second card I colored on the stamp with watercolor markers, misted the
stamp and stamped the image.  I like this card but the one above is my favorite.
Mom was very happy to receive it!

 Wishing you a crafty weekend and thanks for visiting!

A few fun challenges:

I just read the notice on my blog this morning that the email follow feature is going away. As if that's not enough, a new version of windows is coming along next month too (Big groan) I hope I'm able to keep up with all the changes!
On to your pretty slimline cards! I'm happy you and your mom had a little fun shopping time together and happy belated birthday!! Those floral stamps are gorgeous, and I just love them in both colors!

I love the blue card. I really do not need anymore stamps but made the mistake of clicking onto the IO blog and watching Anna's video of the new releases for April and now
I really really do need more stamps,!!
I had that feed burner email too and hadn’t a clue what it was on about. Hugs Mrs A.

What eye-catchingly gorgeous cards, Donna. They are serene, sweet, and every bit as beautiful as the real (garden) deal.
