Take Time To Smell The Flowers

Good morning!  It's Lorie here today to share a fabulous Cottage Cutz creation with you.  It's still technically winter around here, even though our weather has been more like spring, so with all this spring in the air, I couldn't resist playing with the new Cottage Cutz dies from Peachy Keen Designs.  Some of my all time favorite  images are now available in die form, and they come complete with adorable face stamps to give you all the versatility you can imagine!! 

For this card, I used the Cottage Cutz Shower Peepers 4x6 die, along with the My Little Shoebox Ornate Circle Frame 4x6 die.  I added some pearls to the flowers, and pretty satin and organza ribbon for embellishment.  I found this sentiment in a set of stamps I had from Peachy Keen Stamps called Spring Bouquet.  I cut this chickie out with white card stock and I colored it with Copic markers.  Before I colored, I stamped the face with Memento Tuxedo black ink, which is great for use with Copics because I never have to worry about it smudging.  The patterned paper is some I had in my stash from Stampin Up!, and I did pop this cutie up onto an action wobble, so she's got a little bit of wiggle going on.  What a happy card!!!  

Be sure to head over to The Scrapping Cottage to check out all the wonderful new dies.  There's still time to get your order in for the Valentine's Day release, and these Cottage Cutz by  Peachy Keen Designs like I used today are now in stock, AND if that's not enough newness for you, you can now preorder the beautiful and absolutely gorgeous spring release!!

So glad you could join us here today!  I wish you a blessed and beautiful day and some happy crafting, too!
