Neat & Tangled Release Week Day 2: Dala Horse + Dala Horse dies + Scandinavian Flowers



post 1 of 2 today...click HERE for Lawn Fawn's 5th Birthday Hop!



Hello and Welcome to Day One of the Neat & Tangled March Release!

Today we're featuring

Dala Horse + Dala Horse dies + Scandinavian Flowers●

So before starting my projects I looked up Dala Horse.  Then I channeled my inner Scandinavian soul and designed this:

cardstock:  papertrey ink vellum  stamps:  neat & tangled dala horse  ink:  memento tuxedo  other:  neat & tangled dala horse nice & neat dies, various felt, embroidery hoop 4.25 in, burlap, chickaniddy crafts brad

Hoops

.I.love.hoops.

I had so much fun putting this together.  

välkommen = welcome

Guess where this hoop is going?  Yup, on my Craft Room door♡

Next up is a card using Scandinavian Flowers + Dala Horse:


The stems are from the Dala Horse set and everything else is from the Scandinavian Flowers set.  Can I tell you how much I LOVE that sentiment?

I recently reached out to my Facebook friends.  I'm starting a card drive for a dear friend of mine.  The response was/is amazing.

My friend is a single/non-smoking mom that has been recently diagnosed with Lung Cancer.   I want to flood her (& her daughter!) with pretty mail.  If you happen to have an extra card or two, please let me know if you're interested in joining in this card drive♡

For everyone that that has already signed up for the drive and for all of you that shared your stories with me, this card is for YOU♡



Make sure you stop over to the Neat & Tangled blog for tons of inspiration & a chance to win the new stamp sets!
