Lawnscaping Spring Hop

Welcome hoppers, to this fabulous Lawnscaping Spring Hop.


You should be arriving from Danielles blog.

I am so excited to be a part of this Lawnscaping hop. It is about Spring and I am sure you have seen some fab cards on your way so far. The hop runs from Friday, April 6th - Sunday, April 8th! You have the whole weekend to hop along, so be sure to check out all the blogs and leave a comment to win some fabulous prizes.

The generous SPONSORS are: Lawn Fawn  and The Sweet Stamp Shop Stamp.
Further prizes include a May Arts Ribbon prize pack, a prize from Cards Magazine AND an American Crafts Glitter Tape prize pack (newly released). 
All the details can be found on the Lawnscaping home page.
Here is my spring card for you today! I have used the Critters in the burbs & the Admit One to create a carnival scene under the tree - love those bunnies.  The happy easter saying was created using Jessies ABC.




I used various pattern papers from Cosmo Cricket and My Minds Eye to paper piece the scene. The dies are from Spellbinders.  The background is stamped with subtle white (hero arts raindrop background & newspaper background).



Next head on to Pam's blog .

If you've gotten off track, don't worry! 
Head on back to Lawnscaping to see the complete list of the hop participants and prize information!


Thanks so much for hopping by today! Have fun hopping along...
