The Stamping Boutique Spring Fever Blog Hop

Over at The Stamping Boutique we have SPRING FEVER!!  Most of us are sick of the snow & would love sunshine & flowers so we decided to host a blog hop and celebrate these things with you!

You will have to make sure you hop to every DT blog listed and comment on each post to be eligible for a fabulous TSB prize, our 4 new spring images.  You should have started the hop over at Amanda's blog so if you didn't please start there!  At the end of the hop there will be an Inlinkz where you can post your comment and from this list the winner will be randomly picked.

If you are in the middle of the hop and came here from Collette's blog you are in the right place!

The hop will run from February 19th at 12AM EST and you will have until February 20th 6PM EST to enter.  

All of us at the TSB Design team used a sketch for our fabulous spring creations:

Here is my take on it:
For my card I used this fabulous Spring Image from The Stamping Boutique called: Flower Cart!  I love all the flowers!!  I'm secretly hoping Tracey designs more flower images (hint, hint Tracey)!  I coloured my image with prismacolor pencils, blended with OMS and added some sparkle with my spica glitter pens.  The paper I had was the last of my Little Yellow Bicycle paper and the butterflys were punched with my Martha Stewart Punches.  I added the sentiment but I can't remember what line it is from as I mixed up all my sets :(

Here's hoping our Blog Hop makes Spring come sooner!!  Here is the complete list for the hop just in case you get lost along the way.  Thank you for stopping by!  Your next stop on the hop is Dardi.
