Hello Peeps!

It's been so long since I blogged...I've missed you and hope you've missed me a tiny bit too!! I've been busy having classes and sneaking in a wonderful little getaway to Victoria with my family! So much fun!

We had beautiful weather while we were there, we did lots of shopping, including stopping at all of my fave spots, the Fairmont Empress store, Murchies Tea Store, Rogers Chocolates, the Irish Linen store and of course a stroll through Fan Tan Alley in Chinatown...we came home with lots of shopping bags and lots of pictures.

I have a little share for you's a cute little watering can I made. I found the template on Splitcoastampers...isn't it sweet? I printed it out on Pretty in Pink cardstock and stamped the Baroque Motif swirl on the sides in Close to Cocoa and added some white dots with my Gel Pen. (You can click on the picture for a closer look) The flowers are made with White Tissue Paper using the Island Floral Die and the leaves are handcut.

I hope you like my little watering's time to get out the real thing and get ready for spring! We actually had snow here the day before yesterday, it didn't last, I thought it was going to when the snow plough drove up my street (!) but thankfully it went away just as suddenly as it came. My daffodils and I are extremely happy about that! LOL!!

I really love Spring, there is such excitement in the air, waiting and watching for all the little buds to blossom out in all their beauty. Waiting for the first little crocuses and daffodils to poke their little heads out of the ground. My tulips are starting to come up in my front garden, much to the delight of the neighbourhood deer....the little darlings have munched the tops all off!

My favourite season is Fall, but my second favourite is Spring....with all it's anticipation of warm days and blooming cherry trees, it always feels like the city is getting ready for a big wedding, the streets are all lined in pink trees and after the blossoms are finished the petals dance through the air like pink confetti...beautiful and so very pretty! I love where I live!!

Wishing you lovely days too....thanks so much for stopping by to share your time with me!

Hugs ~ Judy


  1. This is adorable. I have a bridal shower coming up and if the can is big enough I just might be able to get the gift in it, otherwise I could use it to put a gift card in as the gift. Thanks for your share.

  2. Judy, this is adorable!! It's perfect for the Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge "Pink-A-licious" theme. Why not submit your creation.

  3. Adorable. It would make a perfect Mother's Day gift, especially if the person is a gardener or loves flowers

  4. What a cute idea. I am now following you via google. You may follow me through my profile link, thanks

  5. I love it and know exactly how I will use it. Could you please share the link for the template? I can't find it on Split coasters

  6. Hi, if you send me an email, I'd be happy to email the template to you that I have saved in PDF, then you can just print it out on cardstock or DSP.


  7. Judy, this is so sweet! What a wonderful way to celebrate Spring!! This would be lovely for so many occasions! Beautiful!
