Time to Bloom Blog Hop

Good Morning!  Happy Friday!!  My kids are sooo happy, today starts their Spring Break which couldn't be more perfect timing for this Time to Bloom Blog Hop with Deedee's Digis - it's the perfect segue to celebrating the coming season.

If this is your first stop on the hop, be sure to visit the Crafting with Deedee's Digis blog, where you will find the directions for participating in the hop, a chance to win the grand prize of a $15 credit to our store, AND a little gift for you!

Here's the card I created to share with you.  This features a brand new digi called Joy & Blessings - this is the little gift I was telling you about.  It's free until Sunday and then it'll go into the store.



And here's the inside of my card, this is one of the sentiments that comes with this sweet butterfly.


I created my card using a great sketch from a challenge blog that is really new to me!  This came from Flutter by Wednesday.  I know they aren't very Spring-y colors, these are more fiery colors of summer, but hey, I live in Florida, this is what Spring looks like to me here.  LOL

Supplies:
Card Stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Summer Sun
Paper:  Citrus Matstack (DCWV)
Copics:  C8, C10, E33, G00, G02, G05, R11, W-3, Y15, Y17, YG67, YR16, YR68
Tools:  Leaf punch (Punch Bunch)
Embellishments:  black satin ribbon (Offray), Flowers

Your next stop on the hop is Michele.
