Sparkle N Sprinkle Spring Fling Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Spring Fling Blog hop!  If you hopped here by way of Jessica Griffin, then you are in the right place! Otherwise, you might like starting from the beginning to become eligible for FIVE great prizes on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog. 

One of the most welcome signs of spring for me when we lived up north, was the profusion of blooming flowers.  I couldn't wait for the those first blooms signaling the coming of warmer weather.  Those memories were the inspiration for this card using the Dream Fairy Set and the Dream Fairy Cut Files.



I also used a sentiment from the Bird Swirl Set that I stamped directly onto the designer paper.  I cut some of the flowers from scraps of the designer paper, then used a hand embosser to soften them up and shape the petals.  I got a dimensional look and they didn't cost me a penny!

You can find a complete supply list and instructions on the Sparkle N Sprinkle site.

Your next stop on the hop is Angie Blasingame.  Be sure to comment on each blog to be eligible for the 2 grand prizes and 3 “random” prizes that are attached to 3 different designers blogs!

The sale items for Feb. at 15% discount are: Art Deco, People, Fantasy & Gail Burton images.

Here's a list in case you "get lost"

Cookies in a Jar May Arts Style

Cookies aren't just for Christmas, right?  I'm planning on keeping a supply of these around for gifts throughout the year....who wouldn't love a fresh, warm cookie right from their own oven plus a beautiful gift jar to go with it?

Be sure to head over the May Arts Blog and leave me a comment...you'll find a printable recipe there as well.  YUM!

Here's a sneak peek!

Fancy Schmancy Die Cut

Well, maybe this isn't so "Fancy Schmancy" but I did make it for two challenges on Moxie Fab World....the Tuesday Trigger and the Cool Tools Die Cut Challenges.



Here's the trigger photo...what do you think?  Don't these look absolutely YUMMY?



Ok, I better move on before I eat something I shouldn't...It's Wednesday!  That means it's time to peek at all the busy workdesks all over the globe on Julia's Stamping Ground for WOYWW140. 

My desk was waaaaaaay to messy with DT projects so I turned around and got some inspiration on the wall.



It's what we do....Yes?
