Color Blog Hop Wednesday -- April 20, 2016

Hello again.  Looks like it is Blog Hop Wednesday.  I am having a great time working with spring flowers.  And the weather is cooperating, because spring has finally arrived.  In fact, I am starting to think perhaps summer is here.  We had 89 degrees yesterday.  Yikes!  Well, no complaints here.  I hope you are enjoying spring and good weather too.

Our inspiration piece today is a bunch of really pretty flowers.  We had some daffodils in our yard that looked a lot like this.  Alas, they are gone for another year.  Our colors for today are listed below.

 Here is the card I created from our inspiration.  I saw a lot of flowers and so I made a bunch of flowers.  It is pretty easy when you have a punch to just pop them out.  In the centers of the flowers I used our gold dazzling details.  I also used the edge die from the Botanical Builder die set.  

For my demo friends out there, I believe by now you have seen the new catalog for next year.  We'll be saying goodbye to this tea set, but have you seen all the beautiful replacements?  Gorgeous new in-colors, great new stamp sets, and even more dies and accessories.  I can't wait to get started.  For my customers, it's coming soon.  You are going to be so happy.  As usual, when the retired product list comes out I am crushed by how many of "my babies" I will be losing.  I don't quite lose them, though, because I keep most, just on a different shelf.  But I am hurting a lot just looking at the long list this year.  However, there are a lot of brand new replacements in the new catalog.  I hope I get as attached to them as I did to the ones I'm losing.  .

Well, back to our hop.  You should have come to me from Liz's blogsite and now you can continue on to Robbie's blogsite.  We have some super talented ladies in this group.  I know you agree.  So continue on, and come back soon.

Crafty Hugs,
