Final CDS March sneaks. 2 projects to share.

My fun is about over for the March sneak peeks @ Clear Dollar Stamps but YOUR fun is about to begin. You can go to the shop tomorrow and buy the awesome sets that we have revealed to you this weekend. I know you all want some...how could you resist?  :)

My first sample is done the March Stamp of the month set "Terrific Little Tree" which is another one  illustrated by the super talented Laurie Wilson. It comes with the tree image and lots of things to add to it like flowers, fruit, and leaves. I chose to use oranges.

My second sample is a bookmark done with the Psalms 37:3-5 verse stamp created by our very own Lori McCroskey. I thought it was a perfect image for a pretty bookmark.
