A Beautiful Reminder Spring Will Soon Be Here

I was playing with A Touch of Ink stamp set - it's a Level 2 SALE-a-bration item, so you have to purchase $120 in Stampin' Up! products before shipping & tax in order to earn it for FREE!  It's a great way to take a chunk out of your Wish List and get extra products!  This card is super simple and great for beginner stampers who only have stamps and ink pads on hand.

I used blushing bride and calypso coral for the flowers (if I were to redo this card, I would change up the flowers as I don't love it.  Not sure about the blushing bride ink.  I don't know if the ink colour formula is a bit off, but it just doesn't look like the beautiful shade of Blushing Bride that the cardstock comes in...or perhaps it's my eyesight - anything is possible!).  Anyways, back to the card, I used Granny Apple Green for the hummingbird and then added a spot of colour of Poppy Parade (okay, I didn't just use stamps and ink, I used a sponge dauber as well - you caught me lol!)  The hummingbird is outlined in Black Memento as is the "hello friend".

I absolutely love hummingbirds in real life!  We moved into the country last April and set up a hummingbird feeder in May when it was warm enough.  We had 3 or 4 of the sweet little birds feeding from it.  I loved to sit out on the deck in the sun with my laptop and it would sound like a giant bumblebee was flying over your head.  They would also visit the different flowers on the deck - petunias and nasturtiums seemed to be their favourites!  Oooh, I'm so craving some warm weather so I can dig in the dirt and plant my beautiful flowers again and listen to those giant bumblebees as they flit through the air!  I'll have to keep dreaming for a few months anyways as the snow still covers the ground here and we're fighting to get about -20 degrees Celsius this last week!  Yes, there is a minus sign in front of that 20!!
