Hop into Spring! Amy's Paper Romance Blog Hop!
If you are celebrating Easter this year, I hope you enjoyed your day yesterday. And if you don't celebrate Easter, I still hope you enjoyed your day! We had the BEST weather this weekend. I spent most of the weekend in my Bare Feet and Coatless! What a great feeling to feel the warm sun on your skin and drink in the smells of spring!
We started the day with an Egg Hunt yesterday! Even though the house is full of teenagers, they seem to forget their need to act mature and you could almost catch that glimpse of innocence again as they hunted for the eggs! We had a lot of fun hiding them, although I have to say at 7:00 a.m. (yes, there's an advantage to hiding eggs outdoors for teens........they don't get up so early, so we were able to sleep in a bit!).
With the weather forecasting temperatures in the mid 20's (c) , early in the week my mother and I decided to stray from the traditional Eater fare and go for a BBQ! We had Yummy Burgers, Dogs and Salads and it almost was reminiscent of a Canada Day Celebration as the boys ate outside. We enjoyed a nature walk in the Conservation area and tossing the football around the yard. As I write this post this morning, the day looks a little gray and cooler, but I know that summer is just around the corner!
Amy's doing some Spring Cleaning over at Paper Romance and is passing on
some sweet deals to you and we're having a blog hop to celebrate! Make sure you visit all the
DT's Blogs and leave some comments. One random winner participating in the Hop ( the winner could be from any of the blogs!) will win a $20.00 Gift Certificate to Paper Romance.
My Card today is made with the Cute Companions Celebration Set. This set comes in a 6x6 sheet of unmounted rubber and is full of the cutest images. They are just a nice size and easy to colour. Cupcakes, Two Mice, Candles, a cute cupcake, tiny balloon and Strawberry and more! The one thing I really like about this set is that it has the numbers 1-9 so that you can customize your card to the age of the receiver!
I used a denimy blue cardstock as my base. The DP is from the Debbie Mumm Nursery collection. I coloured with Copics (Sand, e-33 and Leather e-35, make the chocolate icing!) I got to play with one of my new nesties (labels ten). I just cut the bottom off as I didn't want the entire oval shape. Some Matching Denim Grograin and a Prima Flower Finishes the card off quite nicely I think!
If you've already been hopping, you should have arrived from Lori's Blog and can now finish the Hop at Amy's Blog and Store to see all the new stamps and accessories she has in stock
and if you're just starting out here and want to start at the top of the hop, be sure to visit Cindy!
