Happy Spring!


Happy Monday stampers, scrappers & crafters!
Today spring was in the air, yippee! The birdies are chirping, the fruit trees are blooming with delicate pink blossoms! The temperature was high 70's, just delightful! So with all of this spring inspiration surrounding me, I inked up this stamp! This is a new little guy from Stampabilites in the Gruffles line, isn't he just the cutest? These will surely become a collection for me! I used my SU! pastel chalks to color the entire image, I am practicing diligently on my shading, so bear with me! (wink)!
