Soft Pencil Blog Hop - Week 2

Hello Everyone,

Have you caught the excitement that has been brewing over at Soft Pencil.  I actually was really bad - I completely forgot to post the little picture in my sidebar to share with you about the blog hop.  But I hope I am redeemed this week.

If you arrived here from Monica's blog, you're on the right track.  If not, go to Soft Pencil's blog for a complete list of blog hoppers.

Here's what Elizabeth had to say on her blog....

We are celebrating the first year of my characters, the Tinytwinies™, the first year of Softpencil Studios relaunching, and my 10th. anniversary as a professional artist! I can´t believe it! ten years has passed since I decided to take this wonderful journey. Thank you very much to be a part of it! ♥

We´ll also celebrate I´ve just opened my own
shop where all my products will be available: digi-stamps (yes, they´re back!), clear stamps, stickers, rub-ons, kits for card making, scrapbooking and paper crafting (they´ll be available on the upcoming weeks) and many more products coming soon!

I want to thank a lot to every of the blogs that are participating, thank you so much!!! they´re 50 so we had to organize 3 different blog hops. As you see on the image the first one will run from April 10 to April 15, the second one will run from April 15 to 20 and the third one, from April 20 to 25. And there will be many prizes to hop on each one!


And here's what I created for the blog hop and my sentiment to Elizabeth, Soft Pencil and the Soft Pencil team.....


I chose the Growing Flowers in Pots image.  I just love the bunny peeking out of the pots.  So sweet!  I also wanted to carry that garden theme throughout, so I tried to create a trellis, but I didn't have the right leaves punch, but I still am please with the results.

I did get a little help from my friend Joni's blog - Raise the Bar.  There is a great and super easy sketch on her blog this week.

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop.  The next stop is Carole's blog.
