A Time to Bloom Blog Hop



Spring is such a marvelous time of year! A time of warming weather, of lengthening days, and best of all, a time of vibrant colors and new life -- a time to BLOOM! Join the Deedee's Digis Design Team today as we celebrate the (almost) start of this very special season with a "Time to Bloom" blog hop!

If this is your first stop on the hop, be sure to visit the Crafting with Deedee's Digis blog, where you will find the directions for participating in the hop, a chance to win the grand prize of a $15 credit to our store, AND a little gift for you!

I love Spring (and the weather the past two days has certainly been springlike, so I am one happy lady!) That being said, I wanted to create a card that is fresh like spring and fun, too.


The images and sentiment are part of Deedee's Digis Little Miracles set.


Here's a sneak peek of the inside of my card:


and a better look:


Spring is Time to Bloom!



I used a border punch (EK Success American Girl Collection) to create a fun grassy border complete with flowers and ladybugs.



The tiny dragonfly is a brad.




Your next stop on the hop is Jerusha.
