I love this set -- it reminds me of the Partridge Family! And who didn't love that bus of theirs?
I layered Dusty Durango, Garden Green, More Mustard and sheets from the Haiku ds. The piece of notebook paper is from The Write Stuff ds -- I added the spiral punch along the edge. The partridges and flower are stamped out in craft ink and clear embossed, with the exception of the large partridge -- that one was overstamped with Versamark, then clear embossed. The card base was run through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions folder.

I love the Love Bug set -- it's so stinkin' cute!
I layered Certainly Celery, Old Olive and sheets from the Tea Party ds. The large pink flower and small yellow one were cut out from the Tea Party ds, then I added a rhinestone brad to each for the centers. I used the new bird punch and cut out the bird from Almost Amethyst, the wing from the Tea Party ds and the leaves/stem from Old Olive. The purple bug to the upper left was cut out, the wings were glittered and adhered with a Dimensional.

Ever since I first laid eyes on this set, I knew that the big daffodil needed to be popped-up on a card!
This card totally started life as something else. I've spent the last two days pulling this card apart and putting it together again. It wasn't even supposed to be done using this set -- I was trying to do something with those darling little butterflies using the Beautiful Wings embosslit. I had a bunch of butterflies cut out and dusted with pale green ultra-fine glitter.
Too bad I didn't use them...
Anyway, I layered Certainly Celery, Perfect Plum, Glorious Green and sheets from the Shades of Spring ds. Both ds layers are sponged around the edges with Glorious Green. I watercolored the image and cut it out, cutting out an extra of the large flowers to pop up on a Dimensional. I sponged behind the image with some Certainly Celery to make the daffodils stand out a little more. I used my white gel pen to highlight the daffodils.
Stamps: Abundant Hope
Paper: Certainly Celery, Glorious Green, Perfect Plum, Shades of Spring ds
Ink: Black, Certainly Celery, Glorious Green, Perfect Plum, Summer Sun, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Rhinestone brads, Scallop border and corner punches, 1" square punch, ticket-corner punch, Dimensionals, aquapainter, 5/8" Celery ribbon, 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, sponges, white gel pen
