Happy Spring everyone! If you are hoppin' along with the rest of us , you have just arrived from Jamia's blog and checked out her beautiful artwork! If you lose yourself along the way do not worry! Just hop on back to Helen's blog where she has posted the links to each participating consultant's blog.

It is finally in the 70's here and sunny and my Indian Hawthorne is blooming. This stamp set lends itself to the bright and beautiful colors of spring and I decided the perfect backdrop for the April SOM blog hop - don't you agree?!

Isn't it amazing how many different colors can used to showcase this stamp set? This stamp set is a perfect design for coloring with our watercolor pencils (3505), markers and our ink pads and our waterbrush (1771)
