My Card ~
Nicole inspired this one.  Her beautiful card paired two stamp sets: Embroidered Blooms and the sentiment from With All My Heart from 2012 which you can see HERE.
I tried to CASE Nichol's lovely colors and created my card by inking up Beautiful Butterflies released this year.  The flourishes are from Embellishments.

Rosie Posie stamp sets and dies are the most used set I have from 2011. The background is a Cuttlebug EF "Script".   My card  was inspired by Dawn McVey ~ her beautiful card features  Background Basics: Newsprint and Fresh Bouquet stamp sets, I also CASE's her gorgeous color scheme :-)  You can see it HERE.

My card~
Once again my inspiration was drawn from Dawn McVey.  Her card was created using 'Take Three: Summer Stamp Set'.  
I don't have the featured sets from 2010, so I improvised using  'Embellishments' (a 2010 set I do own) as a border 
and 'Song Birds' to CASE the sweet birds and flowers.  
The embossing folder from Spellbinders was added as a  background for some texture.

My Card~
This inspiration came from Dawn McVey's sweet card for the 2009 post.  I don't have the featured stamp sets, but I do have the much loved and well-inked 'Fancy Flourishes' and 'Fall Elegance' sets.
The sentiment is from Spring Woods.  It's certainly helpful to have a few Sympathy cards on hand, because creating them at the time of need is often very difficult for most of us.

My Card~

I was inspired by one of  Nicole's cards where she used one of the featured sets from 2008,  "Out On A Limb"
I don't have that set but stamped the limb, flowers, leaves and sentiment from Spring Woods for my version.

I own Spiral Bouquet which you can see is one of the "Past" featured cards on Nicole's Blog today~which you can see HERE.
WOW! What a great surprise and honor to see my card there 💖 

No need to dust off this stamp set for a "Present" day card, it is still a favorite. 😊
