Hello Stampers!
It's been a long time since I've stamped and entered challenges due to my busy life among other challenges. I hope to be able to stamp and share my papercrafting creations with you often. It's so wonderful to be back. To get me back into the swing of things, I am participating in a few challenges. This is my "Thanks" card. I used the hummingbird image from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and colored it in using Copic markers. I used scissors to distress the edges of the paper.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Taylored Expressions - sketch TESC157
Wags 'n Whiskers - distressing
Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge SNSDC51 - flowers or rain
Prairie Fairy Fridays - flowers
The Crafty Pad - flowers
Stamping Sisters in Christ - green
Stamptacular Sundae - spring bling
Make It Monday - anything goes
The Poodles Parlour - anything goes
Stamp and Create - Spring
Nutcrafters - anything goes
Forever Friends - flowers
Paper Playtime - anything goes
Creative Card Crew - ribbon
