Isn’t that the most perfect breath of spring?! I’m so excited by the inspiration photo and colors, how about you?!
Here is how I was inspired:
Confession: I have a TON of 6×6 paper pads so today I decided to focus on those for my project. I was able to combine the My Favorite Things – Farm Fresh Gingham with the Doodlebug Design – Fun in the Sun 6×6 Paper Pads.
The pin cushion in the upper left hand corner really inspired my project. I liked the idea of the block design. The marshmallow wool felt and heart dies are from my stash but I really liked how that turned out. I originally was going to use cork but decided that the felt would really ‘soften’ up the design.
The ‘hello sunshine’ strip is from the Doodlebug paper pad. The safety pin was on my desk…LOL. It all worked out beautifully.
I can’t wait to see how my teamies were inspired! Make sure you pop over to The Heart Desires blog for more inspiration and to see who our February Guest Designer is!

Hey Amy! Oh yes, good call on the marshmallow felt with the lime & white patterned paper … so pretty! Way to dip into your 6×6 collection : )

My paper pads sit…mostly unused and aren't even displayed prettily! Love the mix of patterns on your fun card.
So pretty, Jo x
Green. *sigh* This is just soooo sweet! My Grandma Violet used to make pincushions…I have one in my sewing box, and one in the attic tucked away. You've really captured that image in the inspiration photo. This is just darling. LOVE that sweet little felt heart. I hope to play along, too! : ) Bev
Your combination of paper is PERFECTION!! I love the addition of the felt heart and the tiny pin that attaches the sentiment. All these little details make up one adorable card.
