It's Spring and it's time to hop.... blogs, that is!

Well, Paper Wings is at it again!  We're hoppin' and poppin' (well, hoppin' anyway) for spring!  We already have a Chinese Elm tree in front of our house leafed out and GREEN!!  Beautiful! I love spring and having the windows open (and they have been LOTS) and hearing the birds - the quail are very vocal!

My card uses a hostess set called Spring Life (appropriate for the hop) and I used Lilly Anna SWIC paper and matching cardstock.  I love the brightness of the papers.  I also used a corner scissors and small flower punch, and, of course, the Stardust Clear gel pen

I used an old ink pad, Calypso K-pad....  I don't even know if it's available but I love the variety of colors in it.

As you can see, the Stardust gel pen picks up the ink colors while it glitters.  You KNOW it's my favorite bling maker!

I got these rhinestones somewhere so decided to use them as the flower centers.  And the flowers are popped up on foam mounting tape.

There are a few "angels" participating so after leaving a comment on my post (or a rating) please visit these other blogs for more spring projects!
