February Blog Hop



Here is my entry to tonight's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop with the theme of "Spring". I had grand visions...something cute with a little coil spring I saved from a store bought card that I received. A fever has hit, and thinking too much hurts (as does standing in my stamp area). I am all excited that I now have the Bitty Dots Basics & Cardstock Sampler!! I used Floral Frenzy and Mailbox greetings for the stamps. Unfortunately, the ribbons I picked with this past order are not matches for the colors in this card. Oh well, another easy one to mail!!















Sara has started up "Perfect Match Monday's" again using PTI colors. My card fits the bill for this challenge, as well as using the sketch for the Papertake Weekly Challenge.

Happy crafting!
Sharon

That is so pretty Sharon, I love the pastel shades you have used.

WOW! A coiled spring? How clever of you to think of it, even if it didn't work out.
I was looking at your card and wondering what sets you used, as I didn't recognize them, then I read what they were and was shocked. I don't have either of those sets and wasn't initially interested, but I sure am now! I love that sentiment.
