Not a long post tonight---I just wanted to share with you this little Easter card that I completed today. I don't know if any of you have had the opportunity to see the new Martha Stewart bunny ears punch. It is too cute for words.
I was certain the minute I saw this punch it would be the perfect addition to one of my favorite Papertrey Inc stamp sets. I knew that cute little button bellied bear would look adorable wearing these bunny ears.
On the inside of the card I used my other new stamp set from Papertrey Ink---BackgroundBasics: Hearts. I stamped these tiny hearts with Papertey Ink's Sweet Blush Ink onto the matching Sweet Blush cardstock.I am finding so much inspiration in these stamps---I am off to play some more..........
About Dandelion Wishes--Why a Dandelion you ask???
As I was contemplating starting my blog and opening my etsy shop, many thoughts swam in my head. What would I write about, what would I sell and what in the world would I call my blog and shop? Oh I had a list of names--which one should I choose? I finally decided on Dandelion Wishes. Why that name you ask? Why a dandelion--they are such a nuisance poking their little yellow heads right out into the beautiful green grass. Then there are those little white seed parachutes floating over my lawn just looking for a place to land and grow more little yellow heads in my beautiful grass. If I would have stopped at that thought I never would have choosen the dandelion to represent my blog. Who want's to be known as a nuisance?? Not me. As I stopped and really looked at the little yellow flower, I discovered that it is really quite beautiful. With it's many petals and it's happy yellow color I found it to be really very cheery. And then the thought struck me. There are many things that come into our lives that at first we consider a nuisance. But if we really stop to think about them, often they can become a thing of beauty--teaching lessons and helping us to grow and mature in our lives. I couldn't think of a better name for my blog and shop. It helps to remind me to stop and see the beauty in all situations, to ask myself what lesson I am to be learning, and how does this situation help me to grow into a better person. I wish that for all of you my friends as well. Thank you for visiting Dandelion Wishes. I hope you enjoy your stay.
