A Springy Hop


A spring in your step, a springy blog hop! I miss the spring of where I used to live, I miss seeing the dogwoods bloom early. What I don't miss is the five or so expected inches of snow we are supposed to get where I live now.

This card was so easy to create, I think I'll be trying it again. I printed the delicate dogwood branch image, misted and highlighted it, coloring the leaves with mist as well.

Today begins a 3 day blog hop at Tiffany Doodles where there are giveaways at every stop.
The details: Follow every blog and be sure to leave a comment to be eligible for prizes. Each stop has a special doodle that you could win, and there is a grand prize of a $10 gift certificate to Tiffany Doodles! I have this beautiful dogwood branch image to give to one lucky participant. (Winner will be chosen by random.)


Be prepared for a lot of spring inspiration when you visit the following Tiffany Doodles Design Team members:
There are some amazing happenings (besides this fun hop) at Tiffany Doodles this month. The regular Card Challenge starts Monday, March 7th! Tiffany also has great sales going on.
