Meljen's Designs at Whimsy Stamps

Happy Monday

I have a couple of cards to share today with you, both of these images by Meljen's Designs can be found at Whimsy Stamps.

My first card uses Melissa's Cozy Winter Mailbox, which I thought was just adorable and would make a sweet card just to let that special friend know you are thinking of them.

I used the last scraps of this cute Creative Imaginations papers matting on PTI Spring Rain and Chocolate Brown, keeping it clean and simple by adding just  a touch of stitching on the middle panel, sentiment and a bow using PTI Pure Poppy stitched ribbon and of course Crystal Stickles.
This fits into the challenge at I did it Creations challenge - Brrrrr it's turning blue - use blue in your card, Sentimental Sundays challenge - winter and sentiment, Challenge Up Your Life - clean and simple

Now this next card is one that I want to keep next to my computer to remind me that this not so fun winter cold will soon be leaving. Yes, I am so ready for the warmer temps and sunny sky with all the colors returning with the blooming of my Spring flowers.

Meet Johnny Bird Boots, isn't he just the cutest little guy to remind you that Spring will return soon I hope! LOL!

I found these gorgeous papers at my local craft store by American Craft "City Park", the heart one is embossed, sorry I covered it up mostly, but it is just so sweet, pairing it up with PTI Hawaiian Shores and Harvest Gold.
MS border punch, Prima flowers, Dress it up star button, twine, sentiment from Hero Arts clear stamp set, inked in SU ink.

This card fits in with this week's challenge #18 at Beary Sweet Challenge  friendship or love, Fairytale challenge - flowers, Stamp Scrap and Doodles challenge  - anything goes, Craft Your Day Away - anything goes, 2Sisters challenge - flowers

Please stop by on Thursday as I will be sharing some new release images from Whimsy Stamps that you will not want to miss.

Thanks for visiting, wishing you a crafty week.
