Blog Hop Night!

I'm so excited to be a part of my first ever Papertrey Blog Hop!


Although I've been a fan and customer of Papertrey Ink since their inception, I've never done a blog hop. Shame on me, I know. *grin*
Here was the task: Your challenge this month is to put a little "spring" into your step, by incorporating the flowers, familiar sights and colors of spring into a project.

So did I do it? Does this card make you think spring? It does me. But then again, I haven't seen anything but snow since Halloween and I am so ready to see the green buds on the trees and the birds chirping!

Supplies: Lemon tart, kraft, white, spring rain, spring mist CS, Out on a Limb, Birds of a Feather, Borders and Corners Oval, and Simple Alphabet stamp sets, Bitty dot basics PP, Chocolate, cognac, Spring mist, and Spring rain inks, Spring rain twill, tiny white buttons and antique brad from my stash.

I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with. That's the best part of the blog hop...inspiration! Thanks for stopping by this evening, have a great night.
