♥ Springtime...bunnies...baskets...flowers...Oh My! ♥

♥♥♥ETA: If you go to Melanie's Blog, you can have a chance to win of these gorgeous sets! ♥♥♥

Even though yesterday we had some flurries (last week it hit 80 degrees!) I can feel Spring in the air! Especially after using these adorable new stamp sets by Gina K Designs! "Spring Basket" and its companion "Basket Blessings". They were illustrated by my talented friend Melanie Muenchinger. She is such a sweetie! She sent me not just 1, but both stamp sets to play with!
For this first card, I used the adorable basket, tulip, stem and leaves from Spring Basket and the adorable bunnies, basket liner and sentiment from Basket Blessings. I also used some paper by The Girls Paperie, trim and ribbon, pearls and glitter. I used Copics to color in the images.

On this next card, I used 1 of the beautiful flower stamps from Spring Basket and the Happy Birthday sentiment from Basket Blessings. I also used some script paper, a vintage french label from The Graphics Fairy, ribbon and trim, pearls, glitter and a tea stained crocheted heart.
These stamp sets are not only beautiful for Easter and Spring but can also be used for birthdays, weddings, a new baby and more! I love stamps that are versatile!

Thank you Melanie for the stamps and the wonderful designs!

Lastly, I leave you with a photo of my little one! I can't believe in 3 days he will be 7 months old already! And my oldest just turned 5! Where is the time going? But I am loving every single minute of it! Being a Mom is the best job in the world!
Have a great day everyone!

Hugs...
