Heartfelt Creations Wednesday Inspirations Spring is in the air...

Hello my friends guess what today is; Heartfelt Creations Wednesday Inpsirations. Today I have a  lovely tag I made using precut stamps from the newly released Countryside Evening Collection and  several other Heartfelt Creations precut stamps and coordinating dies. One of the many things that I find so nice about Heartfelt Creations is that you can  mix and match any of the precut stamps and coordinating dies. There are endless combinations. There are no boundairies.

Ohhhhh, Linda ----- I don't even know what to say. I'm mesmerized! Couldn't stop staring at all the tiny elements and details on this tag - so BEAUTIFUL - but that's not adequate. The textures are captivating. Maybe you had cast a spell on the tag, and that's why I couldn't bring myself to stop gazing longingly at it? LOL Love the mixture of colors in addition to the embellies. Thanks for sharing, hugs, de
