GIna K Designs inspirational hop day three


 Welcome!
Today I have a few more cards to share from Gina K’s newest release.  Be sure to catch all the other samples from the Design Team today  –  And make sure to check out all the new stamps on the All New page!!
 This first card uses the new What's the dirt set from Gina.  News Flash!  I am not a great colorer, so I went with highlighting the pots and a lightly coloring in the flowers. 


And I forgot to share this one the other day, so I am showing it now...This is the Timeless Textures again paired with the Garden Silhouettes (the Free with Three set)  I have been in an earthy mode lately...must have been all the preemptive Easter/Spring colored cards I made hoping Spring would show up.... Not yet here!! ;)

  thanks for stopping by!!
Make sure to check out the rest of the team today as well!!
