Paper Smooches January DT Blog Hop

Hey there! Can you believe it’s the last day of the month? I most definitely can’t believe tomorrow begins February already! But I’m pretty excited as I do like that month and it means we’re so close to spring I can taste it! And it definitely tastes like Valentine’s Day sugar cookies to me. 🙂 On to the exciting Paper Smooches blog hop business!

Kalyn-magical-spring

I used one of the new sets, A Magical Spring to create this card. It includes the little leprechaun, large clover, coin, sentiment and clover cluster. I stacked the large clover image together and then trimmed around the edges of them to create my own border. The little leprechaun was fun to paper piece, but he’d look just as great colored with markers. This set also includes spring and Easter images, so you get the best of both worlds all in one set!

Now continue on hopping and enjoy the other gals’ blogs (I just know they’ve got awesome stuff in store for you). Karolyn Loncon is your next stop! And I even got to hang out with her at CHA! Awesome, funny and talented. Gosh, I love my fellow crafters. 🙂

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
