Tuesday Trigger and Wee Memories

Today's card incorporated the Tuesday Trigger photo from Moxie Fab World.  I was inspired to use my Button Boutique stamp set from last month's Papertrey release.  I really really like this set and it can be used for soo many occasions!  Then I incorporated a little SPRING in there for the challenge over at
Wee Memories this week.  This daffodil image is one of my favorite stamp sets from the YOF series.




I recently bought the Gertie papers from My Mind's Eye.  I love these and had fun layering up some of their goodness here.  So, I'm not enabling here or anything but have you checked out these papers yet??  You won't want to put them down.




This card just came together and I couldn't be happier with it!  I love that large daffodil layered over the button card.  I can't wait for spring here......I think we are going to get a good taste of it starting tomorrow with 70 degree weather!  (this is after we got several inches of snow on Monday morning!)  I love living in Kansas!  :)



I also am a member of the Papertrey Paper Dolls blog group over on the PTI forum and one of the open challenges that I had yet to play along with was Laurie's challenge:  1) use a YOF set, 2) designer paper,
3) use at least 3 colors.  This card fits perfectly for her challenge!  Thanks Laurie for the great challenge!

This is so pretty Amy. I really like the patterned papers and that flower looks awesome on there. That's some serious fussy cutting, but well worth it.

Really beautiful, Amy! You did an amazing job with the daffodil, and it looks fabulous layered over the button card. A breath of spring, just when I need it most!

NICE job! I love the way the pinked edge mimics the edges of the "buttons". And a gingham flower? OH YEAH!
