by Michele K. Henderson



Welcome to the Poppystamps Spring Release Blog Blitz!

Leave a comment on my post today and you might be randomly selected to win this tiny die that packs a big punch!


Every spring, we all have amazing plans and dreams for our gardens, right? This year, we will believe that what starts out as empty pots and soil will be transformed into a backyard paradise!

I used a bit of a collection to create this scene! The Cottage Arbor is the perfect resting spot for our tiny feathered friend from the Serendipity Bird Frame. I added the Cottage Gate, and the Cottage Fence. Now we're ready to get to work with the Mini Garden cart, filled with soil from the High Flying Kites, ready to fill the Garden Pots and Buckets. The twining branches are from the Serendipity Bird Frame. Fancy Believe is the finishing touch!

You can create your own little garden dreams with today's prize, the Cottage Arbor Die!   All you need to do to enter to win is leave a comment by April 28!  One lucky winner will be selected and names announced on this blog April 30!
