Something special to share - and a giveaway

Hey there, everyone!  My friend, Kim Hughes, has asked me to help promote one of her newest stamp sets this month.  When she sent me the email, I was like "Of course!!"  I love Kim's cute stamps...I have been a fan of hers ever since her CHF days, and that is the time that we "got to know" each other as card makers.   We also were both part of the CPS sketch blog team together.

On April 15th, Paper Smooches will release their newest set called "Spring Groves" and I am here today to help promote this sweet set!  This is the sixth stamp set from their "Kismet collection".  Here is what I created with this super cute stamp set!
 "Welcome Spring" supplies:
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (kraft)
Paper: Simple Stories (Fabulous 6x6 paper pad)
Stamps: Paper Smooches (Spring Groves set)
Ink: Clearsnap (Stephanie Bernard Dye: chocolate & Pigment: berry)
Flowers: Recollections
Jewels: Kaiser Craft
Border Punch: Fiskars (upper crest)

Aren't these stamps just the CUTEST?!  These trees are my very favorite image in the stamp set, but there are a lot of other super adorable images included too!  The other thing I love about Kim's stamps in general is that they stamp so cleanly and are such great quality!  And guess what?  I have one "Spring Groves" stamp set to giveaway to one lucky person!  

You have until midnight on April 15th to leave a comment on this blog post!  I will post the winner here on Monday, April 16th  For more chances to win...please visit:


I hope that you enjoyed my cute little Spring card!!  Have a great rest of your day! ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
~Lea L.
