Seeds and Challenges - some on time...some late!

I wanted to play along with the new Poppy Seed Challenge on Lisa's blog.  The three "seeds" we needed to "plant" in our design were using a flower stamp, using the color yellow and using crystals/rhinestones.  Once the color yellow was mentioned, I immediately thought crocus or daffodil.  (Yep, spring fever has set in!)  Come to find out...I have neither image as a stamp!  I used an old SU! set instead and went for the yellow gladiolus - still looks like springtime to me!  Thanks to Lisa for the fun new challenge!  It may be my Mom's birthday card in March...she lives here in western Maryland where the snow this season has reached 265 inches...she NEEDS a little springtime!

I was able to fit two other challenges together this morning:  The FTL80 challenge on the Clean and Simple Stamping blog (I love the ideas others came up with for this one!) and the PTI Spring is in the Air color challenge on Nichole's blog.  Funny thing is, I loved the colors Lisa (see above paragraph!) chose for the challenge:  pink, cream, kraft and brown.  I used those colors to finish off the layout for the FTL80 - another great sketch!

I tried the inspiration challenge over at Pals Paper Arts, too!  I thought "birds" the whole time, but of course, it didn't happen!  Butterflies happened!  I'm too late for the Mr. Linky...but I wanted to post it anyway.  (The picture has a weird "crease" in it...I tried to upload 2x.)  These were great challenges and I have a few more I want to work on before the week is out.  I hope you get some crafty time, too!
