The time's just whizzing by; hopefully, Spring has sprung where you are and the 'darling buds of May' are ready to make an appearance in what is but a matter of days! Us? Rain and snow in the forecast...which is typical here for April...and May...sometimes June and July...definitely August *grin*
Enough time-and-weather talk! Welcome to Serendipity Stamps April Blog Hop #2! Once again, my fantastic DT and I are showcasing some fabulous products that, hopefully, will inspire and delight.

Carol Mayne - you are here
Two cards, both inspired by the pretty spring colours over at Just Us Girls Challenge #389~Peach, Lemon, Pink
My cards marks the debut of my new Oops A Daisy Cling Stamp Set (such crisp images!), which I paired with the Shadow Rectangle background stamp. Speaking of background stamps: did you know that Mary has a variety of those in the shop, ranging from the one you see here - long and lean - to a smaller square version, as well as several that cover full panels. I've used several in the past (Summer Flower Pops Background and Marble Cells, to name two). In the next while, I have plans to play with a few more; hopefully, you'll see as much potential in them as I do. Anyway, back to this card...
A clean, simple pretty daisy that becomes all the more delightful with the sweet sentiment. My "Oops a Daisy"carries into the inside with the partner sentiment you see in the card below.....
For this one, the single daisy takes the stage, with supporting roles played by stenciled ink splatters. CAS and easy...and I think the daisy performs its role well!
That's it from me! Two tasks for you now:
