*day 3- spring is in the air*

Welcome back for another dose of Woodland Critters inspiration! Did you spot what's new? The cloud paper, of course!!! Isn't it fun?

I've been seeing lots of fabulous paper flowers lately and since today's theme is all about spring, it's the perfect opportunity to add a delightful paper flower with a wonderful *watermelon* center!

Be sure to bop on over to the A Muse blog for more inspiring ideas!

*day 2- woodland friends*

I'm so glad you stopped back for some more Woodland Critters inspiration! Today's theme is *woodland friends*, and I'm thrilled to give you a glimpse of the new watermelon paper that was introduced yesterday AND today's new color.... apricot!

My card today was inspired by the amazing JulieHRR! For those of you who frequent the A Muse Lounge, you know that this month's challenge is to create something inspired by Julie. It's a pretty easy challenge since everything Julie makes is inspiring!

The rest of the team is sure to have some more inspiration for you, so be sure to check out their blogs!

*A Muse/Hero Arts Designer Swap*

Ever had one of those secrets you couldn't wait to share? Well, I finally get to spill the beans! I'm tickled to be part of the A Muse/Hero Arts Designer Swap, and today I'm swappin' with Nancy Taylor of Hero Arts! It has been so fun to see what those brilliant Hero Arts gals created with A Muse stamps... and equally as fun to see my fellow Muses, Julie and Heather, whip up some magic with Hero Arts stamps!

Check out the A Muse News blog to see Nancy's fabulous designs, and then hop on over to the Hero Arts Blog to see what I created. Be sure to leave comments on both blogs for a chance to win some free stamps! I hear Hero Arts is giving away some of those sweet owls that I adore!

*thanks {so much}*

You can never have too many thank you cards on hand. I make more thank you's than any other card, but I never seem to have one when I need one. How is that possible? I normally don't use a lot of purple, but lately I've had a thing for purple and green. It makes a great combination, especially when you've got a yummy polka dot ribbon to match.

*meet Phoebe*

She's the newest member of our family... and she makes my heart happy. :)

*sweet friend*

I've always loved these sweet little mice... and to think that I nearly forgot that I had them! I'm so glad I picked up Martha Stewart's grass border punch the last time I was at Michaels. It has become one of my favorite punches, and I love pairing it up with A Muse's wonderful green gingham.

I hope it's sunny and warm where you are. It's snowing here in Iowa!
