Spring Has Sprung - 2012 Pals Blog Hop

Spring has sprung and it's time for Pals Blog Hop! Today the Stampin' Pretty Pals are sharing some fabulous Spring themed cards and projects that we think you'll enjoy! You've probably hopped over from Kim Luithle at Kim's Stampin Stuff.

I'm stop number 3 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for spring themed paper projects from the Stampin' Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track.

My "Garden Gate" card has a white textured card stock gate cut with a Cricut Picturesque cartridge.  The cardstock is Stampin' Up!'s Naturals Ivory.  The garden was stamped with two of the stamps from SU's Pocket Silhouettes in Taken with Teal ink.  The Butterflies were die cut with the SU Embosslits Die, Beautiful Wings, using SU Burmuda Bay card stock.  I was able to use all five butterflies in my design!  Welcome Spring!

Now hop along for more inspiring ideas from Kim Czenszak at Live Love Stamp, stop number 4 on the Spring Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for "hopping" by!
