April 2023 Triple B Challenge

We are already into April which makes me happy as it will soon be time to clean
up all my gardens from the winter mess!  I love the Spring air and all the blooms
and singing birds.

April also brings us to our second Birds~Blooms~Butterflies challenge at 
Dar has created this months inspiration board and it's just that 'inspiration'
as you can create anything you want as long as it has
birds, blooms or butterflies on it, you can add one, two, or all three if you prefer! 

Inspiration Board

I did let the inspiration board inspire me by going with the bottom left corner.
The stamp I used is a BIG one and an oldie by Stampendpous (1998) Garden Birdhouses.
It is a stamp I was lucky enough to be given when my friend purged out all her wooden
block stamps.  It stamped out beautifully and colored in easily too!
Besides the gingham background the only thing I had to add were three bluebirds
to finish my card.

We would love to see YOU join us at Triple B
and can't wait to see your creation!

Entering the following challenges:
Stamping Sensations .... ATG goes with optional Cas (not playing the option)
We Love Stamping .... ATG (not playing the option of real birds/animals)

This is the prettiest thing! It totally speaks spring and I love it! I'm a Stampendous fan and have lots. Your friend gave you some of the cutest stamps and your coloring of them has been a delight to see. Really loving the gingham on this, too!

A really lovely stamp and yes some of their oldies were pretty large, I have some lovely old wood mounted ones from them. This one has a perfect reminder of warmer days, many thanks for sharing at Stamping Sensations and We Love Stamping challenges.
