The Friday Focus over at Flourishes is paper piecing, for the "Swing into Spring" challenge, and this week at Created by Hand, the challenge is also spring. I've been away from home (and my stamping supplies!) for several weeks now, so it was GREAT to come home to all kinds of new stamps delivered while I was away! This spectacular iris stamp from Flourishes was one of them. I have several iris stamps, and grow dozens of varieties in my spring gardens, so I was particularly thrilled to use this beauty. This beautiful embossed paper is available through Quietfire Design. I seem to be using it alot this week, it's one of my very favourite textured papers.
Flourishes has a new release party starting on April 10th, so make sure you stop over to their blog to share in the fun!
