Little Spring Blog Hop

Welcome to our little blog hop! Recently, my friend Stacy invited me to join in, showcasing spring projects! Boy do I love to hear "Spring", because here in Kansas, it is only the flowers here in my scrapbook room that I see in bloom! We just had snow this last weekend and I am so ready for warm temperatures!

So here is my first Springy card!

That flower was so much fun to make! I got the idea from Betsy's blog! She is so super crafty! I just used white tissue paper and got the fluffiest flower! I love it! And that felt? It matches Raspberry Fizz perfectly!! I got it from Hobby Lobby! It is more of a sheet of felt...kinda stiff stuff that cuts amazing!!

For the next card I had to add in some Easter! I can't believe it's almost that time again!

I found these little clay flowers at Hobby Lobby and knew I had to add them in somewhere! They go perfect behind this Lemon Tart bow!

Hope you like my "Spring" creations! Don't forget to check out these links below! The girls have more spring inspiration for you!

Both are so pretty - sorry to hear you still had snow, yikes! I love tissue paper flowers. I spend two hours cutting them out for the bulletin boards at church and they turned out great!
