GOOD AFTERNOON FRIENDS! I’m still procrastinating when it comes designing cards for my April classes. Instead, we took a day trip yesterday to the Gettysburg National Military Park, visiting the museum and diorama. Afterwards, we had a fabulous candlelight lunch at the Dobbins House Tavern and visited family in town. Although the weather was cool, the day was bright and sunny and it felt good to take time to blow away all the mental cobwebs.

After we got home, I played with my stash of new stamps, which includes a few of the new releases from Newton’s Nook Designs. For this card, I used one of the images from the Woodland Spring stamp set. I was inspired by a card created by Tatiana Trafimovich, but pared the design down even more. I recently colored the lamb in the Spring Pile Up stamp set so I decided to use the same pointillism technique here, but switched to shades of gray instead of browns. I added a few crystal jewels from Pretty Pink Posh for a little bling.
