Welcome to the Spring Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Spring Blog Hop, hosted by the very talented Jen from Jen's Craft Corner. If you came here from Linda's stop you are in the right place, if not, make sure you start back at Jen's blog, you won't want to miss a SINGLE stop.

I am very honored to be in the same company with these wonderful and talented ladies, and I appreciate you stopping by.  This is my very first time participating in a Blog Hop, so needless to say, I am very excited!  
I made two projects that I 'd like to share, because I am sooo happy that Spring is here (even though it just snowed where I live!)

I made a simple shaped flower card using the Forever Young Cricut cartridge and my Gypsy.  
I used Prima flowers and my I-Rock to bling up the card.  The pink flower is stamped with the Pink by Design, Daisy background stamp.  I just got this and am having so much fun with it!

My second project is a Pin-Wheel Flower in a sweet little pot.
I put the pin-wheel together with K&Company paper and used a Prima flower and a brad to attach it to a pencil that I covered in two different green ribbons.  Since the paper was not printed on both sides, I again used the Pink by Design, Daisy background stamp- but this time I colored it in! 

I have some blog candy too!  A little bit of bling-- of course!
All you have to do is become a follower, if you aren't already, and leave a comment telling me what your favorite "bling" is. 
(A winner will be chosen on Monday.)

Next on your stop is Patti.

Here is today's line up (in case you get lost).  Have Fun!

  8. Super WOW on both, esp. the pinwheel. I am new & don't have much yet, but I like sparkle & tiny brads that match card. Can't use glitter for cards we make for OWH, so I want to try stickles or glossy accents, I have heard alot about both.

  61. I'm new to your blog. Hope you reach 200 followers soon. I like bling but I don't like to spend a lot of money and therefore buy what ever is cheapest so I don't know the names. LOL. There is a booth at the Scrapbook Expo that sells large packages of bling for $1.00 a package and I stock up when I go.
    Looking forward to following your blog and getting inspiration on how to use my boing more.
