Spring Colors Sentiment for Friday Mashup

This week I've got The Friday Mashup challenge for everyone......

Many of us are dealing with cold temperatures and snow and while I live for that type of weather I know many people are counting down the days until spring (like my husband). I thought I'd help some of you out by giving this challenge some pretty spring colors to get you thinking of warm days and flowers blooming in the yard...and in the meantime you can send all the cold and snow to me ;) LOL

I also want to see some original sentiments. That's right, no stamps, rub ons, chipboard, etc. Make your OWN sentiment! How do you do this? Free hand it and write your own, create your own ORIGINAL sentiment on the computer and print it out, you can take die cut letters and arrange them for your sentiment....just as long as it's an original sentiment that you the crafter came up with! My card is for a friend of mine battling breast cancer, so I wrote the sentiment myself on an Itty Bitty Banner that I cut out. I don't have the best handwriting but my friend isn't going to care about that!

  1. Make a project with the colors "Raspberry Ripple, Daffodil Delight & Old Olive".
  2. Or Make a project "Creating your own Sentiment (No Stamps, Stickers, Chipboard etc.).
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project "With your own Sentiment using the Colors above".

Supplies (all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Perfectly Preserved, Itty Bitty Banners
Paper: Raspberry Ripple, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Naturals White
Ink: Old Olive, Raspberry Ripple, Daffodil Delight, Black StazOn
Accessories: Itty Bitty Banners Framelits, Big Shot, Paper Piercer, Scallop Edge Border Punch
