I'm So Excited!

The first real sign of Spring is always the crocus blooming.  I have noticed them coming up for over a week but I saw the first blooms this morning!  They are the first brave flowers to show their colors every year.  The buttercups aren't far behind, if the sun will shine 2 more days they will probably bloom also. 
I'm sharing 2 more cards we made at our last team meeting today.  After all, there is another team meeting tomorrow night so I need to get these posted!  I had completely forgotten that I hadn't posted these great cards yet.  Have you seen the spinner stamp set yet?  It is so fun and there are a variety of ways you can use it.  The spinner hands are a great price and make for an interesting and unusual card.  What a great way to show you care!  To the right of it is another card with the Blossom Petals stamp and punch.  I love the bright colors, don't they scream Spring?
Last are a couple of other fun, bright cards.  I love the new Pom Pom Trim, available in 3 bright fun colors, 5 yards for $6.50.  You only need a few inches per card so a spool will go a long way.  2 feet will make a double page scrapbook page so you will still have a lot of the spool left after doing layouts with it.  The die cut flowers are from a new die called Fun Flowers.  The great button in the center of the flower is from the Sweet Stitches Designer Brads, aren't they great!

The DSP for both cards is front he Sweet Stitches DSP pack, there is some great fabric that coordinates with this paper.  With the very popular sewing theme this year, you will be perfectly in style using these new products on your scrapbook pages and cards!  They are only around till April 30 though so let me know if you need a mini catalog so you can see all the great new products Stampin' Up has to offer this Spring.
