Hi Friends,
Happy Wednesday! How is your day going? Is this week going exactly as planned and fun memories being made or do you find yourself swallowed up in a mountain of cares or concerns with pressures from work, family, health, or just life in general.....

If you said yes, to any of the above stressing life situations....I want to encourage you to take a moment for yourself and take some time to create something beautiful! This will allow you to de-stress and lose yourself in the wonderland of creativity....and maybe in the process of creating, think about someone that needs to know that you care and bless them with your one of a kind card. You will find yourself rejuvenated and there's just something so satisfying when you see your friend's face or even someone you don't know well, completely light up and be so grateful for your kind gift!

Celebrate Mother's Day: Recieve a FREE pack of Flower Stamens of your choice with your purchase. Use code 66031 when you checkout. Valid May 13 - May 31st.

If you missed out on the Backyard Blossoms release, follow this link: http://hcgo.co/BackyardBlossoms to see all the details. Get yours today and you will be on your way to joining the hundreds of crafters who are already having fun creating with this new collection.

Our Crafters Say:
This collection leaves me breathless. I love flowers! Your quality and versatile products are always on the top of my wish list. This collection is a must have for any crafter. I want it all!!! ~Wendy Burton
Oh my, this is my favorite collection ever! I love the pinks and yellows and cone flowers are so beautiful. I can't wait to have them! ~ Becky Lodestein

To get you jump-started for your next card, take some time to be inspired by the new inspiration that has never been seen before......you WILL be SOOO inspired.....I'm needing to wipe the drool off my face, lol:) I would love to hear what inspired you on the blog today, you can leave a comment at the very end of the blog. Take care, Emma Lou

The cards shared today are beautiful inspirational cards. As soon as I saw the card created by Robin Clendenning, I knew it was hers before I saw her name. She has such a unique and awesome style, and her work is always outstanding! I love everything she creates for Heartfelt Creations. Thanks for sharing the gorgeous artwork.
