I love this amazing stamps!
Spring means it is warm, sunny and bright outside. I can hear the birds chirping, see flowers blossom an trees growing. Spring is a great time, because winter is too cold and summer is often to hot.

Spring is my favorite time of the year. I love all the colors and smells.I love to see the trees dressed only in little green buds. I love to hear the cardinals when they first wake in the morning. I love hearing the highpitched squeaks coming from the bat house. When the bats arrive it is officially spring. ms.cheryl

Spring ist the time of the year when hope returns! The winter here is dark and cold and spring gives my life new hope again. I love to "stroll along" in the garden, searching for every day miracles when it's growing.
I'd love to win those beatiful stamps! They would suit me so much!

suemon said...

Hi Irene, just wn\ant to let you know I love visiting your blog, you are so talented.

hugs

Lynna said...

Absolutely beautiful set of stamps! I just love butterflies and dragonflies (have 2 tattoos with them featured).

Spring is a renewal. It's the time of year when new growth happens. It also means spending time at the local farmer's market for fresh foods, flowers & fresh air.

shirl said...

Hello Irene, Those are great stamps and useable on so many projects. The arrival of spring means we get to go and spend our summer at our trailer in a conservation park and enjoy the beautiful gardens my husband created. We have a gazebo he built and I look forward to lots of hours scrapbooking in the beautiful outdoors and have visits from our squirrel and chipmunk friends who congregate on our porch for their snacks. They all have their own personalities and offer me lots of photo ops. Hope you enjoy your summer as well and get lots of family time.

Siri Fjørtoft, Fjørtoft Design said...

Ohh, how I love this stamps!

As I grew up on a farm, spring to me means a lot of work getting everything ready for summer. The air is filled with birds singing and the sound of lambs calling for their mums... It is lovely!

Siri

sharingmydaze said...

Hi Irene. Spring, it's the time of year that I can "spring" into action digging in the dirt and playing in the garden once again. I adore spring. Your stamp set is adorable also!

Mrs. Frenchy said...

Spring means to open you windows in the morning and to hear the birds chirping, it's when you wake up before anyone in the house to just have the few moments with nature and a good cup of coffee and to reflect on the day ahead; and maybe just maybe to see a little butterfly fluttering around thinking about his wonderful day ahead as well.

tesa said...

Beautiful stamps, Irene.
The spring:
When we start to feel that warm weather and see the green grass growing, the leaves coming back to life and big smiles spread over our faces.
The parks are beginning to wake up, filled with birdsong, laughter of children and comments from parents who admire the play of their children.
Confinement is over, begin the afternoon of fun, enjoy the good weather and street games.
Run, jump, in a word ENJOY.

Jenny said...

Pretty stamps! To me, spring is: the smell of cut grass, my sons "little piggies" running across the lawn, walks with the dog, opening windows and letting fresh air in, thunderstorms & rainbows, trips to the zoo, cookouts and so many more things. In a word, spring is...HAPPY!

ashjoy said...

Great set, you make beutiful stamps!
Spring meens a fresh coat of paint, fresh mulch, green grass, walks outside and budding flowers....beautiful!

C Shell Designs said...

Lovely stamps. Spring is a time to "start over". New life begins all around. Eagles are spotted among the budding trees. Vibrant colors are popping up everywhere - in flowers, in fashion and on scrap pages and projects. Energy is in the air!

Anonymous said...

Love this stamp set Irene

Spring to me means the Lord is all around us, watching the buds on the trees and flowers grow all over again after a long winter in Ontario, and see the grass go from brown to green again, it is amazing and the birds singing, another one of Gods creations

Spring is a time to shoot for the moon and if you miss you land in the stars.

Dana said...

chrisw said...

Becky S. said...

Spring - frolicking butterflies, baby bunnies in the fields, wildflowers of purple, pink and white that I used to pick for my mother on the way home from school and even as a grown up :). Very pretty set of stamps you designed. You are soooo talented.

livmme said...

The stamp set is beautiful...
Spring to me is a new start every year. The dull dark winter is won over by sun, new promise and life! And every spring I find the joy of life again! I don't see january as the new year, that is the first day of spring.
I love this time of year and now i KNOW it's spring here in cold Norway to; i have found the early spring flower :)

Peggy said...

Beautiful stamps Irene, I so admire (and yes, sometimes even envy, I have to admit...) your creativity.
Spring to me is always arriving just a little bit too late. I love all the seasons, but winter just takes a little bit too long for my liking. The cold and rainy weather gets on my nerves and really affects my moods in the end. Then spring comes along, the sun starts shining and giving just that little bit of warmth already, birds start chirping accompaning me in my sometimes boring daily chores, and suddenly life seems better again. Everything is just more beautiful in the spring, and somehow I feel happier and more alive.
xxx Peggy

I´m a big fan of yours. The stamps are fantastic (flatter, flatter)!
Spring to me means sunshine. Living in Sweden is mostly a hunt for the warmth of the sun. So, sitting in the sun with chocolate chip cookies nearby, is very relaxing for me. (And of course my kids around trying to "steal" them all from me, hi hi.)

Julie said...

Spring is the first splash of colour amongst the soft green shutes. The smell of fresh earth and the droplets of dew hanging like diamonds from the spiders webs as you walk out the front door to go to work.

Stephanie said...

For me, spring means all the wonderful blooms and the sweet smell of the flowers. I just love it when the flowers start to bloom!

cpullum said...

Spring means outdoor sports and family time to me!

Spring! What a wonderful word for such a time of year, when everything is waking up from a long, cold, snowy winter! Way up here in the north we have such long, cold months that when the snow starts to slowly melt & the breezes are warming and the maple sap is flowing......it is such a wonderous time of the whole year. It is like been asleep for a very long time and slowly coming awake and stretching your limbs and feeling the warmth of the sun.......my time of year. Listening to the robins at 5:30 in the morning and wanting to jump out of bed and not miss a second of the day! I would love these stamps Irene as they would help me to show this spirt of wonder.......Thanks for being able to expound on my feelings! Moje

Dawn Hueser said...

I would really love to get my hot little mittens on a set of your stamps. They are so versatile.

Dawn Hueser said...

Spring means new beginnings not just for mother nature and her creations but for me as well.

Julie Mutch said...

Hi Irene,

Your stamps are just gorgeous! I love butterflies and dragonflies! :)

For me, Spring is a time for us to see the amazing work of Mother Nature by trees budding and new flowers popping up. I wish she'd keep the dandelions to herself, though! I hate the stains my kids get on their clothes! lol :)

Thanks for the chance to play along in the QKD stamp fun. This one is certainly on my wish list! :)

MAK TEH said...

NanaBeth said...

These are just gorgeous. the butterfly reminds me of a fairy-perfect for an Irish ATC I'm working on.

Char- The Mad Shopper said...

"Spring" means it is time to plant the garden, that there are new shoots emerging from the trees, and there are baby animals everywhere.

Debbie said...

Beautiful stamps Irene.

Spring for me is the most beautiful time of the year. Living in the UK we have had months of dark, drab, cold days, with rain, frost, snow, fog and wind. I love spring.

The fresh green leaves just bursting to see the light of day. The smell of the first cut on the lawn is luschious. The welcome bird song after months of silence. Children playing, their laughter brightens the day. I could go on...I love springtime.

Hugs Debbie xx

Дашик said...

Maxine said...

Wow what a fantastic set of stamps you have designed and just so beautiful.

Spring well we don't get Spring where I live but what comes to mind is fresh and new life.

Vanessa said...

Spring means sunshine for my soul! Coffee with my sweetie outside in the early morning starts my day. We watch the butterflies and hummingbirds in our yard, who come to admire the blooming flowers. It's like mother nature is smiling at me from the moment I wake. I struggle with the dark winters, so this is a time that I also feel reawakened along with all the flora and fauna. Have a wonderful day!

Linda said...

spring is "renewal" it is also the lightest of greens to the brightest of greens,all the other colors follow,,, Love spring!
thanks for the chance to win such a lovely stamp set.

Jennie Dove said...

Spring means the laughter from your childs soul grows louder in your ears. The giggle and joy of freedom grows stronger. The flowers in the garden even seem the give a shout out with no care or worries.

Jenn Dove

Judy said...

Thanks for all your beautiful inspiration! I look forward to your blog each day. I live on an island and these stamps will fit right in.

Linda Kay Price said...

Spring is sunshine and rain, frost and dew, dirt and grass, new life and new promises--this stamp set you are offering shows all this and more! These are delightful! I'm new to your site but will come back often, especially for the eye candy and techniques.

Brynn said...

Beautiful. Spring is such a great time to renew and refresh. I love the smell of rain and fresh cut grass!

scraphappenings said...

your spring stamp set is awesome! Spring means the birth of my daughter...going barefoot in the grass....and feeling the warm sunshine on my face. Sounds and visions suddenly comes to life and beauty surrounds me.

Basement gal said...

These stamps are just absolutely gorgeous and I'd love to own them.

thanks for the chance to win them.

wendy scrappings said...

Wow, great stamps.

Spring means more energy to do things for me. Being happier because of the sun (vitamine D).

Anonymous said...

Love the stamps!

Spring....budding of new flowers, smell of cut grass, the start of flip-flops & tank tops & preparing the pool for the lazy days of summer.

Scrapsation aka Lia said...

Spring is like a breathe of fresh air after holding your breath under water as long as you can. Spring is like buzzing bees and fruit trees ready to give God's gifts to the world. That's what Spring is to me.

Wendy said...

Spring means new growth and freshness, sunshine and social activities, a time to rejoice that you're alive and all your senses kick into overdrive :o)
I live in New England, US, so there is a marked difference with the changing of each season. Spring rejuvinates my hope.

lizzydear said...

Spring in my part of California is very brief; we seem to go from Winter-cold & gray to Summer-sunny & hot in the blink of an eye. Actually it's more like a few weeks. So spring is a brief riot of color, with weather pleasant enough to get outside and enjoy it. A time for inspiration, a deep breath and a fresh start.

Froggietalks said...

I love those stamps... so very different from what I see in Canada. And to add to your masking technique, I am waiting anxiously to get my hands on a couple of Tim Holtz masks, but I can't find them locally, so I am hoping that a stamp store a few hours away from me will have some.

inbar said...

for me spring is the smell of the flowers, and runing away from the bees :)
i love this seasen - it's worm, but not to much.

Helen said...

How amazing to create your own stamps!
They are so cool...

Spring means new little baby chipmunks (chippies) to run around outside teasing my little indoor kitties!

The cats chirp as much as the chippies!

Vicky said...

What a gorgeous set of stamps...you are indeed a very talented artist :) Spring to me means a time for outdoor fun, long walks, blue skies, lots of flowers everywhere you look, mother nature at her very best. Thanks for the chance to enter the draw.

It also means Birthday - cause I'm a spring child. Once it's starting to warm up and bloom I get happy in anticipation to my Birthday.
