Smiling today and enjoying the Worlds Robotics competition in Detroit via live streaming on my own computer! It’s kinda funny racing between the stamp room and the computer room because I still need to get stuff done around here! haha One of our grandson’s is on the team from here and the older one that was on the team last year is helping. Three of their brothers/grandsons are dressed in their mascot shirts that Heather, our daughter made them. So, yep, I’m smiling.
This card makes me happy too! I die cut the new poppystamps Spring Pots Shelves die in white cardstock and colored it with Copic Sketch markers. I will tell you the colors but yes, I often start out with one set of colors and end up coloring over with another set. *cross your eyes* lol I started out with YG63 and 67 for the vines but decided to change it after coloring the one pot YG17 and 25. So I quickly went over the vines with YG17… a new green color! ;D YG17 and 25 are pretty much my go to green.
For pink it was RV21 and 23 I think. Yellow is Y15 and 18 but I think I put a little YR18 in the veins. The terra cotta color is YR18, E07 and E99. The tealish blue is BG02 and 05. The tan pot is Y28. The Shelves are E35 and 37.
I used a little white gel pen here and there for accents.
The sentiment is from the Memory Box Springtime Typewriter Sentiments clear stamp set and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
The dark blue panel is die cut with the largest die from the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles and glued to a top folding A2 white cardbase. I added 5 of the smallest size Doodlebug Sprinkles. I love them! The card is pretty fun without them though if you want a completely flat card for snail mailing. It will still mail with the sprinkles for one stamp but I put a piece of that super thin packing stuff on top of it.
Using some of the 6×6 paper pad stash this time…yes it’s older. Carta Bella Flora No 1 it’s called. Start digging, you probably have it! hohoho
I trimmed out the Lily of the Valley Sprigs from the Circle die after cutting it and the watering can from white cardstock. Then I added a little Copic coloring again. Pinks RV13 and 14. Greens YG63, 67 and 99. Gray is W2 and 3.
I used some Nuvo Rosewater Jewel Drops to make some droplets. I made them on my craft sheet and then glued them on.
Nothing real earth shaking but I like it! But who do you send a ‘do something nice everyday’ card to?! hmmmm
Holler if you have any questions! Links below to what I used to make these cards.
Thanks for stopping by!

These are darling Pam. Love them. So delicate. How DO you do this?
Lol….I think we are exchanging comments at exactly the same moment! These two cards made me sit back and say ‘happy happy, joy joy’! They scream spring, and I love them both! The second sentiment is perfect for you – you live by that one, my friend! Hugs!!!
Both darling cards… the first one is so the reminder…spring is finally here.
Love both of them…
Hi Pam these card brighten up my day as it is raining today. With all the rain we are getting we should get a lot of May flowers lol. Both cards are lovely like the second card best as it has lily of the valley in it.
Oh what cute cards! I really like them both! I love those little flower pots and that watering can is adorable! Love it!
Love the coloring against the blue background and love the white accenting. Love the whispy flowers in the watering can. Hope all went well for your grandsons in the competition!
Those are adorable!! The first one really stands out on that blue base and I love the sentiment on the second! Beautiful job!
The grands always make me smile too. I think they’re the best part of having kids! 😁
Wow, I really love the blue background with your colorful pots. Wish I’d thought of that for the card I just got done making. It looks awesome! Then you made a second card all delicate and sweet and I love it too! I know, some sentiments are difficult to know what to do with, but send it just because and anyone will appreciate it. I hope everything turned out good with the kids and the robotics. It’s all about the fun, no matter what!
