It's a Blog Hop - Wings and Blooms!

Hello blogland!  Welcome to the first stop on our first blog hop at Crafting by Designs!  Since we're so close to the first day of spring, our theme is Wings and Blooms, so get ready to see some fantastic projects of things with wings and all kinds of flower blooms :)

I made two projects to share with you today - here's my first project made with one of my favorite stamps from StampersBest that can be found HERE.

I colored my image with some copics then fussy cut it and popped it up with some dimensional dots on a pretty piece of DCWV paper and finished it off with some hand died crumpled seam binding.

For my next project I pulled out another favorite stamp from Flourishes in honor of St. Patrick's Day tomorrow.

I decided not to use traditional colors for this project and accented the clover with pink cardstock and ribbon with some flat back pearls.

And now for some blog candy!  We will pick one winner, chosen at random, from all the comments left on all the blogs in the hop that are left before midnight on Monday March 19.  So the more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win!  Just be sure to leave your email addy so we can contact the winner.  Want another chance to win a prize?  After visiting the last blog, hop on over and join us at Crafting by Designs, and show us your Wings and Blooms project!

I am so sorry that I will miss much of the hop, but did want to stop by your blog and try to slowly hit a few more.

I wrote a long post on the group site, so you'll know why I have been MIA!!

Your cards are lovely and I am very impressed at the size of your HOP!! Wish I had the ability to see everything...but in time, I will try!!
