Celebrating the arrival of Spring with a blog hop!!!



I love blog hops, they are so fun to follow the links and find what the next person has to share! The CHF Creative Chicks have a blog hop today, and then if you go on to the CHF Creative Blog you can find out who is getting goodies from playing along with the Spring Card Challenge from last week.

The card that I made used images from Sweet Spring and Spring Trees sets from the Kim Hughes collection. Patterned Papers are by Pink Paislee, Basic Grey and Cosmo Cricket. I used the new blender pen from Ranger (very cool, but I need to practice!!!) to color and all of the images were stamped with Ranger inks, Peeled Paint Distress inks and Adirondack Ginger.

Leave me a comment about your favorite thing about Spring, and I will randomly pick someone on Monday at noon to get a Spring Trees stamp set.

Hope that you are having a very hoppy Spring!!!

Spring flowers along side robins gathering the worms and their song! I can look out our window and see the robins tugging on the worms after they sing their song or whatever they are doing. There are lots of little flowers coming up all around the birds and the bird feeders we have.

Love the card.
