And now on to our April Challenge
It can be a card, scrapbook layout, pocket page, home decor piece - whatever!
It just has to be birthday related. 
Submit your creations on the Create & Share FB Group and make sure to include

Our prize this month is this cute stamp set - Birthday Wishes For You


In March I held a Colour Me Happy Workshop where we learned and played with several techniques and products including the new BRUSHO Crystals - we had so much fun!
I will be sharing more cards with this great product over the month, but I did include some details in this months newsletter and here is the finished product:

And here is one of the cards we made at the workshop:

We had a LOT of fun playing and creating and the ladies all agreed though they may look intimidating to use - these are quite easy and look stunning!

If you are interested in purchasing the Brusho Crystals here are some other suggested products to include:

You can also check out this video from Stampin' Up! for more details on how Brusho works!

Welcome to the March edition of the Ink & Share blog hop! 

My name is Amy and I’m stamping from Ontario, Canada! This is our second month for the Ink & Share group - if you missed the February edition where we focused on Sale-A-Bration check it out here. 

This month our theme is Easter/Spring cards. I hope you enjoy and be sure to check out the other blogs, listed below, to see what the other creative and talented lay dies, from around the world, have created!

This months theme really made me think and look for inspiration. 
And I love how it turned it. I actually CUT <gasp> my stamp from the We Must Celebrate stamp set so I could just focus on the cute rabbit. 

And thankfully I successfully cut the stamp using the Paper snips and of course can still add him back  together on the clear block if I want to stamp them all in a group again. 

I encourage you to take a look at your stamp sets and see how you can use them for either an Easter or spring card - and be sure to pop it in the mail and bless someone with some happy mail!

This month we are focusing on Birthdays. Who doesn't need to have one or two birthday cards ready for any given month? And I love quick and simple cards that are perfect to pop in the mail - so I decided to stick with one stamp set - Five for All and one stack of Designer Series Paper - Picture Perfect Party.

I don't know if its just me but I have a lot of Designer Series Paper and love to put it to use. And I love the sentiments in this stamp set and how it includes sentiments for the inside of the cards as well!

(Inside: You remind me of me!)

(Inside: Happy Birthday)

(Inside: why did I walk into this room?)

(Inside: It's for the Greatest Kid in the Universe)
