We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to do....by leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop!
If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join Michelle at My Creations By Michelle. If you came from there, then you are in the right place!
I am not mentally ready for spring yet, even though for the most part the weather here in Halifax has been lovely. I thought today I would show you a card I made for a baby shower, since spring= new beginnings to me. This hop has also reminded my I REALLY need to get my seeds for the garden started or we will have another summer of sad tiny peppers.
As you may have realized from previous hops, I am a little weird and not super traditional. I had this idea in my head that we had a stamp set that doesn't totally exist, so I sort of made something close to it instead of risking something crazy like hand lettering, or trying to do the whole thing in letter stamps. (That is a terrible sentence, apologies grammar nerds). I used some of the paper bits I had left over on my desk from the "Make Waves" paper packet, the heart dies that I showed last month, and the stamp out of the "Something Magical" Card kit. I then cut the word "creating" out of "Creating To Create" and sort of jammed it in. Probably not my best work, but it will make my friend laugh at least. I cut the sentiment out with our old scallop circle punch (I thought it was still a thing... sorry). I then coloured a few words to highlight them with the alcohol markers and I used the clear shimmer brush on 'magical'. I added the shimmer trims that match Make waves, and stamped the pretty filigree border in between. It is also from the Something Magical card kit set.
Thank you for hopping by, I hope my card at least makes you giggle a little. Up next for the Cross Canada Hop you are going to head over to Ontario to check out Brae's Creation and I am sure she has something lovely and sensible for you to look at.
If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle S Blog, as she has the complete blog list.
Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way. We hope you will join us again next month when we will be featuring Celebrations. So mark April 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.
