Welcome to this month's Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge! In April we're celebrating the wonderful Spring season! Here's how I was inspired:
I decided to create a little scene using mostly dies and then a pop of the most adorable House Mouse image you can imagine! This is an image I colored in a class with Jennifer Dove... she made a beautiful card design to go along with it, but it's not my design so I decided to use the image on a different card... that's just how I am! The image is called Crocus Nap and its from Stampendous.
I must say I do miss the sight of Crocus in the early Spring... now that I live in Southwest Arizona I don't get to see them like I did in Western New York. Aren't they SO adorable?? I fussy cut them out and inserted them into my background created with the grass from Crafting Desert Divas and the hill and fence from Whimsy Stamps.
I used all printed papers for a touch of playfulness... my sky is made of all kinds of sweet springtime words...
Eep!! I can't stand it!! Those little feets!!
I kept the sentiment simple with a sweet phrase die from Stamplorations and my favorite sun from C.C. Designs... I think both of these aren't available any more and I'm so glad I got them when I could!
And that's me! Be sure to hop on over to Donna's and Susan's to see how they were inspired by Springtime! And then head on over to the Three Amigos Challenge Blog to see who won from March's Rainbow Challenge and play along with us this month! I can't wait to see what you create!
I'm also playing along with a couple other challenges! You might say "a few"...lol! Here it goes and please do check these out too!
There is a House Mouse and Friends Challenge and it's always Anything Goes! Just create something using any House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image and play along... I'll be honest... idk what a Happy Hopper or a Gruffie is... but I intend to find out!
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is Animal Antics! I'm not sure if Napping is an antic, but I've sure never seen adorable mice sleeping inside of beautiful crocus.. crocuses.. croci?...lol!
Cupcake Inspirations is having a Woodland Critters challenge... and living near lots of woods in NY I can tell you mice are absolutely a woodland critter. And they're partnering with Double Trouble!
Over at Double Trouble, the challenge is to incorporate something wood into your project... my fence is wood!
And at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday the twist is to use your Favorite Product or Technique and tell why. I've used lots of landscape dies here... I love a good scene and landscape dies make it so easy to add layers.. and love me some layers! Oh! And did I mention foam tape... lots of different thicknesses of foam tape... def one of my faves!
Thanks SO much for stopping today and hope you enjoyed it! See you again soon!
