Springing forward...a few weeks late

I created this card last month for our team swap; funny thing was - it was a shoebox swap. Meaning we were supposed to gather the supplies & let everyone assemble their own card during our meeting time. But I got ahead of myself the weekend before our meeting & made all the cards, like I usually do for swaps. My fellow consultants didn't mind that I assembled the cards for them :) But I could've saved myself a little time not having put them together! Oh well.

As it turns out, the design fits perfectly with the theme of H2H challenge a few weeks ago. But now I'm behind posting this creation to their website...better late than never, right?!

This card features the April Stamp of the Month - and I really {heart} this stamp set. Can't wait till Monday so I can order it :) And now that the weather has finally decided to improve around here, I'm anxious to make some more bright & cheerful creations with it. Happy Spring!

Eggs-ellent Easter Blog Hop

I have to admit, I'm a newbie to the blog "hop" concept & this is my FIRST blog hop post. We picked a good time of year to "hop" though, don't you think (wink, wink)? Welcome those of you coming over from the Evergreen Memories blog!

I've been in a creative funk lately; too much stress & too little free time, so I really had to focus to get these little gems ready for the blog hop. With Easter just around the corner, a little help from Pinterest & my creative juices were flowing :) 

I used the CTMH Artiste Cricut cartridge to cut these egg-shaped cards. I cut them at 5 inches & then cut a single egg shape at the same size with pattern paper from the Chantilly paper packet. I also embellished a few with the Mini Medley Wood Accents; wishing I had a few more of those on hand!

These adorable little punch art bunnies seem to be hopping around everywhere - here's my inspriation for the card I created. The CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge made cutting the shapes a snap.
