Oh Yes!!! It's that time again!!
And look at the delicious colors and sketches for March's {be inspired} challenge:

I was so excited to play along....the colors of this challenge really grabbed me...
and those poppies....yum! 

I knew I had a few different Unity Stamp's to perfectly capture the poppy look. I actually used two out the three "poppy" stamps that I own....and I love them all!

I'm really happy with how soft and pretty my cards turned out:

I used watercolor pencil crayons to color in the image of this stamp to keep if soft.

Lucky Day - SOUS

Well hello everyone!

This week's die-cut challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches is 

I have to admit I have never been one to go crazy over St. Patty's Day, so I tried to keep my card a little bit less "theme-y". I played up the "good luck" part of the shamrock idea instead of going towards St. Patty's. I am very happy how this card turned out...I think it would be sweet to give someone for a new venture in life or even just to encourage someone you love.

So here is my take on the challenge:

Supplies Used: Cricut Cartridge - Give A Hoot (Shamrock die); Bazzill Cardstock; Basic Grey Sweet Threads 6X6 Paper Pad; Crafts Too Embossing Folder - Sweet Flowers; Sentiment - Unity Stamp Co - Preggo-GOOD LUCK; Jenni Bowlin Ink - Seed Packet; Webster's Pages Designer Trim - Trendsetter; EK Success/Stampin Up Scallop Edge Punch; Button - Close to My Heart; Divine Twine - Green Apple; Labels - Jillibean Soup

Thanks for stopping by today!
