Happy Happy Happy

Today, the entire Avocado Arts Pit Crew has loads of inspiration to share with you! We've all made cards featuring the March Stamp Set: Springtime Celebrations with sneak peeks of the upcoming April Stamp Set: Sew Nice. Please visit these amazing blogs for more inspiration:

For my card, I masked five images together. The flower petals, bubbles and stem are from Springtime Celebrations and the happy sentiment circle and spool are from Sew Nice. The background was misted with three colours. Some of you have mentioned before how much you love sewing themed stamp sets and wished there were more of them. Well, you're going to be able to get your hands on an awesome one come April 1st!

Avocado Arts has a club membership program as well as a publication incentive program. :) If you're playing with Avocado Arts, leave me a link to your blog post or gallery and I'll be sure to stop by and check it out. Thanks so much for stopping by!
