It's very nearly March and there is the delectable hint of spring in the air! This week is Release Week at Taylored Expressions and, for my wonderful readers who are enjoying a snowy winter, we have something to get you thinking of blooming flowers and sunny days! 


Today I am lucky enough to share a sneak one of two new Adorable Abodes, Spring Cottage, as well as one of several new Taylored Dies debuting later this week (including the fabulous Jumbo Flower Border die used in today's project.) I colored the cute little cottage with Copics and stuck to some bright, happy, springtime colors. Included in the set are also some sweet bunnies and sentiments celebrating new beginnings and a new home.


I used the darling little wishing well image -- I actually created my own rosette using a previously-released TE Small Layering Doily Die (simply die-cut two, score across each diameter seven times, cut a slit along one score line to the center of each, fold and adhere together!)
