Welcome to the new week, and I hope you all had a nice weekend! We had some snow, so I got to do a fair bit of shoveling. Sound like fun? Lol.

Now that Christmas is over, I am going to have some fun with some stamps that I've had for a while...but haven't gotten inky yet. I was drawn to this pretty image instantly, and wanted to try using it with this simple layout. It is from 'For the Love of Birds' from Our Craft Lounge. I love the colors, and simplicity. I hope you enjoy it as well!

I will keep this short, as my son is coming home early from school, because he isn't feeling well. Thank you for stopping by!!

Sweet and pretty, Rose Ann! Love the soft colors and paper. I'm also trying to catch up with uninked stamps. I've got a long way to go yet! I sure hope your son doesn't stay sick. Maybe it's just a short-lived bug.
