Midweek Inspiration @ FTHS

Happy Hump Day crafty friends!!
Welcome to another Midweek Inspiration post at From The Heart Stamps.
Not sure about you, but I am really ready for spring to get here.
BUT, I just couldn't help using another one of Faith's ADORABLE snowmen images.
This is Flurry! This snowman is perfect for Birthday wishes, Valentine's Day, or any other winter occasion.  Your download includes 2 images, a color reference, and five bonus sentiments. And the best part -
you can get it for $1.00!! Yep, it's no typo! For less than a 20oz soda - you could have tons of fun creating with this little guy :)
Here is my inspiration for the week:
My twist on the current sketch challenge as well.
  Close up of the shimmery snow and awesome faux pearls.

Challenge #266

Challenge #266
Anything Goes
This weeks image is from All Dressed Up.
I couldn't wait to use this image. My grandson is the youngest of our
3 grandchildren and he always wants to help his daddy out.
He will be 2 in May and just loves his "tools and work bench" he got this past Christmas. And back last fall, he was 'helping' his dad and Papa with the race car. It's so cute to watch him.

This week the whole DT got to work with Lacy Sunshine images.
Heather's subjects vary from fairies, fantasy, mermaids, vampires, dragons, wildlife, abstract and more. I could not wait to use this adorable image. It just reminded me of my oldest granddaughter for some reason.
I went with some wonderful soft spring like colors. Not sure about you, but could really go for spring myself right about now. Even though our winter has pretty much 'mild' here in the Midwest, I just can't wait for spring.
The flowers and new life that is brings.
