It's April 15 - I know that date has some sort of significance (don't want to tax my brain any further, though, by thinking too hard) - but I happen to be excited because it's the day of the latest smART Cookie Challenge Reveal!

Susan sent us each the "Grow On" set, and I thought the mother sentiment was just lovely, particularly since Mother's Day is rapidly approaching. I chose to stamp the flower image onto watercolor paper, then color it with twinkling H2Os. The color is so rich IRL, but I had a hard time photographing it - you can get a slightly better view of it in the detail shot. After coloring the flowers, I added a bit more color just to soften all that white space, then finished off the card with some gold ribbon and a bit of decorative edging (Martha Stewart punch). You can see what the other cookies created here, and be sure to head over to Susan's blog for a chance to win a set of your very own!

It's also time to share the next Tea Party theme. Giovana has challenged us to create a shaped card... you can keep it simple (hey, rectangle is a shape, right! :) or if you're feeling more adventurous, then check out some templates here. We'd love to have you play along; we'll be sharing our cards next Wednesday. If you have "smart" images, then by all means use 'em, but any and all stamps are welcome...
