Feelin' Like Spring...Maybe!

Welcome to the Paper Makeup Stamps Spring themed Blog Hop! Did you come here from the amazing Dawn? If not, make sure you head back to the PMS Blog to start from the beginning.

In looking through my growing PMS collection, I didn't feel I had anything that screamed spring...so I went for a birthday card with some "springy" paper. But now looking at the color scheme, I am not so sure this screams spring either! Oh well!

I stamped the Birthday Lauren fairy and then traced around her with a silver gel pen. Then I drew the line around her and added the sentiment. Finally, I paper pieced the present. Kept it simple...maybe too simple! Again oh well!

So now you should be heading off to Christi S. Enjoy the hop and hopefully it makes you feel like spring (cuz' around here it sure doesn't feel like it yet)! Oh and take advantage of the Inventory Sale (details on the PMS Blog)...hint Birthday Lauren is one of the ones on sale! Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!

It still says spring and I love the simple pen/ink look of this image with the spot of color on the present! Great idea!

I think this looks very Spring-ish and finished! Love the lines drawn around her and her paper pieced present (say that 5 times!). Very pretty!
