Here's my entry for this month's Woodblock Wednesday challenge........for those of you who know me well, it was only a matter of time before I used this one!
And HERE's a link to the Woodblock Challenge - it's such a good idea to get these beautiful stamps out again and give them some love! Be sure to visit the gallery there to see the other entries, and I hope you'll be inspired to play along, too!

Last weekend we took a day and spent most of it in our Ohio Amish country, about an hour from home. We went down to visit the numerous greenhouses there - they have great prices and a good selection of plants that I wanted to add to our gardens this year. The drive was beautiful, a perfect spring day with the fields full of baby lambs, colts, and calves.
I remembered these Rolling Hills stencils and couldn't wait to play with them, this time using spring colors. Here's my result.

I hope you can see the incised woodgrain on the sides of the wheelbarrow. This set was quite the feat of engineering! And the Garden Builder dies have lots of different flowers and leaves to mix and match to your liking - 22 of them, even a little cat silhouette!
I enjoyed playing in my little garden - if you're a gardener, I think you will, too! Thanks for stopping by!

Simon Hurley is launching a new collection called Photosynthesis! I was pleased to get to play with this Daffodil Frame,. It is the PERFECT size for a mini slimline, but, as you'll see below, it works nicely for A2 cards also.

Something I really enjoy about this time of year is being able to open our windows and enjoy all the sounds and smells from outside. Judging by the birdsong I hear, they are just as excited to have Spring back as we are! So today I pulled a bunch of some of my favorite things and mixed them up for my card.

Playing still with some plaid backgrounds that I made earlier this spring. I paired this one with a branch of pink dogwood.
