Spring is Here blog hop

small spring (Medium)

We are having a blog hop at Make it Crafty and our theme is Spring is Here!! As I write this, in Missouri the sun is shining and it is in the mid 50’s. The 9” of snow that fell on Sunday is now just a memory … and hopefully no more will fall.

Below is a list of all of us playing along this time so be sure to hop on over to their blogs too. Be sure to leave a comment as one person will receive a surprise digi from Make it Crafty.


Steph – that’s me




For my card I chose the lovely Summer Dreams digital stamp. I think she is perfect for spring and day-dreaming. Don’t you agree?

I went for a CAS card this time as I really wanted the focus to be on the image and I just love these papers from Stampin’ Up and didn’t want to cover them up completely. I added a chipboard accent – Antique Swirl frame colored up with Tim Holtz Picket Fence. The mat is Spellbinders Labels 29 and inked up with Archival Viridian.

I printed Summer onto Make it Crafty blending card and colored her with Copics – E11, E00, E000, R12, BG23, BG11, BG10, YR27, YR23, YR20, E37, E35, E33, E51

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win!
