Inspired By...Joy's Life DT Blog Hop




Hello!! Welcome to Joy's Life DT Monthly Blog Hop! You should have come from Kimberly's blog, but if you need to start at the beginning, go to Joy's blog! This month our theme is "Inspiration"...well right now for me, it's all about Spring! Flowers, warmer weather and longer days! So here is my Inspired by picture...



Doesn't this just scream "Lazy- Sunny- Flowery-Days"??? This pic was taken by me last summer at a ranch in Mason, Texas. I just love the old-timey feel to the fence so I went with a more vintage look on my card.



I used one of Joy's BRAND NEW stamps that she has on her website HERE for pre-order (Be sure to go check it out & look for the bundles to save $$$) "Seeds The Day" from the set That Tastes Punny! 

I used Graphic 45's new collection, Secret Garden (more flowers!!) for my background paper and also the "Violet" piece on the front. I inked the edges of all pieces with Seedless Preserves and also spritzed it with Purple Dylusions! 

Here is a close-up of the fantastic new stamp from Joy...




And now for some BLOG CANDY! How about a nice assortment of  flowers for you to be inspired with also!?! Leave a comment and please be a follower too! You can get an extra chance by liking my FB Craft Page and Joy's LIfe DT page! Your next stop is Debbie! Here is the entire lineup in case you get lost along the way....

DH was looking over my shoulder and said, "WOW, she captured that exactly!" Hey, that's what I was thinking. LOL! I love this great card! And...I got to see one of the new stamps in action. How cool is that? You really outdid yourself with this. I just adore it! Thank you for being in the "Inspired By" blog hop!
