Happy Freaky Spring!

Welcome to the Control Freaks blog tour! This month we are celebrating Spring and/or Easter. I have to tell you, I am really enjoying living where there are four distinct seasons! I'm ready for Spring, how about you? This is our first Spring in Tennessee. The daffodils have been blooming for a couple weeks now, and the Redbuds are just starting. The bare trees are starting to get a haze of new leaves around them, too. *Happy sigh*

If you've been following the blog tour in order, you just landed here from Lisa Martz's blog, Get Your Stamp On. Didn't you just love her cheerful Spring projects? If you started here, just follow the links at the end of each blog, and you will come full circle!

I have three cards to share, so let's start with this cutie-patootie baby chick. We've been going to Tractor Supply a lot lately, and they have their baby chicks in now. I'm drawn like a magnet over to see the peep-peeps every time. I want chickens! But, alas, they will have to wait until we get all the fruit trees planted and garden started. THEN we can work on building the hen house.*Impatient sigh*

By the way, that sweet lil chickie will only be available until the end of this month, because it's a Sale-A-Bration stamp set. Better get yours while you can!

Next is another Hello Spring card, but this one is a CAS (clean and simple) card. I love how easy it is to do two-step stamping with the photopolymer stamps, and this image from Number of Years is a fun one to stamp. So many color possibilities, but I stuck with the daffodil and redbud colors this time!

And last is an Easter card using the You've Got This stamp set. I love the Peony blossom in it, and thought it would look fab on the embossed brick background. A bit of gold metallic thread poking out behind adds just the right bling without overpowering the pretty peony.

It was stamped on Shimmery White and colored with a Blender Pen, then fussy-cut and popped up on dimensionals.

That's all from me for this month; I hope you were inspired and fired up about Spring finally arriving. Happy vernal equinox to you all! Now hop on over to see what Melissa Stout at The Stamp Doc has in store for you!


  1. Great way to layer the two doilies and I like how you used the Gold Twine!

  2. The chick card is ADORBS and I love your CRISP AND CLEAN designs on the other cards!

  3. Your coloring on the peony is perfect! I love the Number of Years stamp set...can't ever go wrong with that one...pretty colors! I love that you call the chicks peep-peeps! One of my girls used to do that! Cute card, Cindy!

  4. Your third card is amazing. Love it all! That background works so well with that set. Beautiful arrangement and coloring!!
