Blog Hop Time

I don't always get the chance to participate in these, but when I do, I certainly enjoy them! The theme this time was all things spring. And with the 5-15 cm (maybe more?) of snow we received yesterday, I am beyond ready for spring!

This card took WAY too long. I kept fiddling with the little details. I wanted the ribbon, buttons, scallops and the rabbit on there, and getting it all to fit was a bit more complicated than I had anticipated. I also realized that I don't have many Easter or Spring sentiments. Perhaps I never realized a lack in this area since this is probably only the second Spring/Easter card I have ever made? It's just not something I usually do. I don't send Easter cards to people. And spring, well, it's one of those funny things, more often than not, there's not much of a transition between winter and summer. All of a sudden it's hot and the snow is finally all melted.

Supplies: Stamps: Mixed Messages, Bitty Baby Blessings

Ink: Dark Chocolate

Cardstock: White, Sweet Blush, Lemon Tart, Dark Chocolate

Accessories, etc.: buttons (from Walmart years ago), dental floss, Sweet Blush Stitched Grosgrain, pop dots, scalloped nestabilities

  6. So pretty Natasha. When reading that you were trying to fit all sorts of things on there, I was worried it would be too busy, but then I scrolled down and saw how beautifully simple it is! Just perfect IMHO.
