Blogger's Challenge #204 - Spring Flowers

Good Morning!  This week's Blogger's Challenge is Spring Flowers.

I am posting a little early this week as I am heading off to Hartford tomorrow for Stampin' Up! Regionals!  I am soooo excited to spend the day with 3 of my downline and about 300 other Stampin' Up! demos!  I can't wait to hear about all the great new products that will be coming out this spring!

So I am borrowing a couple of ideas from my friend and downline Deanna Czarneicki.  I had my downline meeting on Tues. night where we all share ideas for things that we have made recently.  Deanna has been playing around with the Build a Blossom stamp set and punch and has designed some beautiful things!

So I am showcasing those today...

The first is a card that is made with River Rock and Concord Crush. 

The second item is a votive candle that she put inside a treat cup.  Deanna used this for a hostess gift for a recent party that she had.  I know that I am going to copy that idea!

The third is a scrapbook page that Deanna designed.

What incentive to break out this stamp set and punch!

Have a great weekend!
