Welcome to the Spring Has Sprung Blog Hop sponsored by Daydream Designs! We are so glad you are joining us! We hope you’ll join us each day since some of our design team will be posting each day of the blog hop with new projects to inspire your spring crafting. 

This is a unique blog hop because EVERYONE WINS! There will be free digi stamps on each DT blog available only for the duration of the blog hop. So grab them while you can. Other prizes for qualifying participants: 3 winners get 3 FREE stamp sets, 2 winners get 2 FREE stamp sets, and 1 person will win 1 FREE stamp set...all from Diane’s Daydream Designs Stores.

To qualify, comment on each DT blog (one time for each DT is sufficient even if they post each day). Start the blog hop at Diane’s blog and continue through this list:

You should have arrived from Marsha's blog and I am quite certain you were suitably impressed by her work! I absolutely love the Spring Has Sprung sets. This first card was made with the Cup of Tulips set. This has such vibrant colors. I just added a couple of ribbons and some pearls.

This next card uses the adorable Bouquet of Daisies. I love daisies and I just took a few of the daisies image - used the copy and paste command and placed them in a bunch. Then I added a ribbon and a few yellow brads. This card screams, SPRING! I also used a strip of the coordinating papers from this set and the sentiment.

For those of you who know me just a little bit you know I LOVE tulips! Perhaps it is the Dutch in me!  So this card uses the set called Pot of Tulips. I used the digi paper called Pink Grid Paper which coordinated so perfectly with this image. I also used a sentiment and the butterfly is from a punch.  

Now hop on over to visit Mynnette - she is so talented I just know you are going to love her eye candy. 

I hope you enjoyed the hop as much as we enjoyed creating for it. 

God Bless You!

Irish Blessings to You!

Here are a couple of St. Patrick's Day cards I made for a few of my Irish friends! I made both of these with the Irish Blessings set from Daydream Designs. I even remembered to mail them! Yeah me! 
So Irish Blessings to all of you!

God Bless,

Happy Birthday

Today is one of my grandchildren's birthday - this is one of 3 this month alone! I used the same wonderful digital stamp set from Daydream Designs called Birthday Bash

I really love the little animal images and the digital paper that comes with it work great with it too! This is great for all of the younger grandkids - it's the pre-teens and teens that are tough! I have never given any of them a store brought card so I am always looking for versatile sets, this one was perfect. 

I really had a lot of fun making these and it is the perfect set when you have 19 grandchildren! 

I hope you enjoyed these. To see more really fun images hop on over to Diane's Daydream Designs and have a look. 

Until next time.....

I always have the absolute best intentions to send out cards that say "Thanks!". Thanks for the kind words, thanks for the prayers, thanks for listening, thanks for the gift. I am not real good at sending the cards although I do make them. I even forget to post them. So here are three "Thanks! cards; to Pam and Sue-Ellen and Shannon. They know why! Love you - one is a sister through marriage another is a sister in my heart and the third is an amazing new addition to my heart! 
Tweethearts by Daydream Designs
These three card were made with an adorable digital image by Daydream Designs called Tweethearts. It is a valentine set but can be used for so much more. As you can see I used basically the same colors and images and just re-sized - popped up - changed layouts- added some embellishments and had an incredibly fun time playing with these heart flowers. The little blue bird in the bottom card was added at the last minute. I saw it laying on my craft table as a discard due to bad cutting, it had lost the attached envelope. It is from the same digital stamp set. 

I hope you enjoyed these. To see more really fun images hop on over to Daydream Designs and have a look. 

Until next time.....

I have to go mail my cards now - excuse the poinsettia stamps - I never sent out my Christmas cards either. {sigh}

You should have arrived from MariLynn blog and I am quite certain you were suitably impressed by her work, I know that I always am! I made both of my cards using the Sending You Love set. It has so much variety - I just love it! Although it was the same set look at the 2 very different cards that were created with it.

I really liked using the black ribbon on this one and I hope you can tell that the bird with the envelope are popped up. One of nice things about digital images is that they can be layered. I added the sentiments on top of the images and I just did that in Word. Very simple to do. 

Now hop on over to visit Jerusha - she is so talented I just know you are going to love her eye candy. And here is the free digi that I used in the first card courtesy of Diane!
