Think Spring!

This is an exciting day! It is the DEBUT of a new Challenge Blog... the Crafty Ho's Challenge Blog.

This Challenge Blog was created by a few of my online friends and they invited me to be a part of the fun. I think you're going to love our first challenge.

The Challenge is


Can you tell I'm excited?

I am soooooooo ready for winter (and all the snow, ice, and muck) to be gone and for the warmer temperatures, sunshine, and an occasional rainshower to begin. But for now, I'll have to just think Spring in my crafting, because old man winter is still here for a while longer.

I recently discovered another INCREDIBLE digital stamp company. Karen's Doodles has been around for a while; I just hadn't found them yet! Wow!!! Their images are amazing! For my spring-like card, I chose Karen's Doodles Time for Tea image. Isn't it precious?!?!?

If you haven't already done so, be sure to go to the Challenge Blog and check out all the cards created by the Challenge Design Team. Then get out your spring papers, images, inks, embellishments, etc. and chase away the winter blahs by creating a Spring-like card of your own.

You'll be glad you did!

Ink: Copic Markers and a colored pencil
