Friendly Inspiration

Happy Monday Everyone!
WOW!  Can you believe we are at the start of yet another week!
Time is certainly zipping by!

Yesterday while checking out the many blogs I follow and/or subscribe to, 
I was inspired by Sharon Johnson's birthday cards over on
her blog No Time To Stamp.

Realizing I am in need of MANY more birthday cards before my springtime shows, and the fact that
I too have this exact same Wordsworth stamp, I got busy creating and here's what I came up with:

The top two cards used double sided paper from K&Co.
and the bottom two cards used paper from the Paper Studio
Harper's Boutique paper pack. 

The small pink butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch
and the larger butterflies were created using the
Cheery Lynn Designs (DL113) Exotic Butterfly die set.

A few challenges to share in:
Fairytale Stampers Challenge - ATG (must use stamp)

These were fast, easy and fun to create and 
I can't thank Sharon enough for her inspiration!

That's it for me this morning!
I hope you have a fabulous day today as well as the week ahead!
It is supposed to be in the mid/upper 60s today ... yahoo
If so, I'll be getting some fresh air and maybe even go for a walk!
Later my friends ... and as always ...

Darlene, these cards are ALL fabulous! That has been my very favorite birthday stamp of all time -- I never tire of it, and it's so easy to make gorgeous cards with it! Thanks so much for sharing and for those kind words!
