Here is my giveaway. I had to take 3 pictures of it, because I have so much to giveaway to a lucky winner! I will announce a winner Monday morning, March 21. Please make sure you are a follower of my blog and all the blogs/You Tube channels in order to win. I hit up Dollar Tree last night. They have some great scrapbook stickers for $1!
The stickers are on the stationary aisle and I saw this post-it collection and knew they would fit the Spring Theme! I tried to stick to Spring Theme with all the stickers. I decided to throw in camping and circus sets since the circus comes to town in the spring and it's starting to get warm enough to camp. I know some people who camp all year round! I know some members in our group are also into sewing so I through those stickers in as well! I also saw some washi tape. I was tearing into their sticker collection looking for spring stickers and left a bunch just laying on the shelf. They fall off when you're trying to look through them anyway! LOL I also bought some washi tape and stickers for myself!
This is a close-up of the pink rhinestone stickers. I apologize for the glare. I didn't have the flash on, but the light in the dining room is so bright that it caused the glare. I know you can't tell in the picture, but they are light pink.
Now onto my project. As you can see I am the first stop on the hop today. I decided to make a Mother's Day card for my mom. I originally wanted to add an action wobble to the hummingbird stamped image, but couldn't find it anywhere in my stash! I'm sure I'll find it later when I'm not looking for it. I found a lot of other things I had forgotten about! It always happens that way! I started out with Recollections A2 Card Base and added a piece of Me and My Big Ideas MAMBI Spring Kit May 12 x 12" patterned paper. The pink patterned paper strip at the top is from Pebbles Lakeside 6 x 6" Paper Pad. The happy sticker is from my stash. The blue ribbon is from a Best Occasions Rainbow Self-Adhesive Ribbon Collection. The rainbow enamel dots in the top right corner are also from my stash. The hummingbird and flower stamped images were from the Stamped Image Swap we had in 4G's the end of February. I received both images from Connie Davis. I also added a strip of washi tape from my stash on the spine of the card to cover up a mistake I made when I cut the pink paper! I used Spectrum Noir Essentials Professional Pencils to color in the stamped images. I added pop dots to the hummingbird since I couldn't find the action wobble. I underlined Mother's Day with a Zig Memory System Purple 0.5 mm pen since there's so many other holidays mentioned on the patterned paper.

I added another stamped image from Germaine on the inside! My card wouldn't lay flat because of the washi tape on the outside so I used the roll of washi tape to hold it down so I could take the picture! I wanted to use some 3 Girl JAM crinkled ribbon instead, but it's lost in my stash as well. I will write a note on the card before giving it to my mom.
I hope you have enjoyed my project. Please go to Kim's YouTube channel (https://youtu.be/bho-n2TodyI) next. Remember to follow all the blogs and YouTube channels in order to win the prizes offered along the way. If you are not a member of 4G's- Girls, Giggles, Glitter, and Glue, please PM Dawnette Cress on Facebook to request to join the group. The giveaways are only available to 4G's group members. Have a great weekend and enjoy the rest of the hop!

Hi! Amanda!
Your Mother's Day card came out beautiful! That was brilliant of you to underline Mother's Day! If you didn't say there was other holidays on the paper I would never known. You cover them up so well. Thanks so much for all the valuable ideas! πŸ’—πŸ™‹πŸΌπŸŒΊπŸ’–
