Lawnscaping Blog Hop - Spring
Welcome to the third Lawnscaping Blog Hop ! So glad you’re here! You should have come to me by way of the fabulous Vera Yates. This month's theme is all about Spring! The hop runs from Friday, April 6th - Sunday, April 8th! Now sit back and relax and be prepared to be inspired. We have lots of designers on this hop so we want to make sure you have time to see them all! You have the whole weekend to hop along.... Make sure to comment on all of the blogs because there are LOTS of prizes to be won! All the details can be found on the Lawnscaping home page.
Warm weather came a little early for us this year (actually, we had summer temperatures in March!) and the trees and plants started to spring to life many weeks before they were supposed to. But now we are having our normal cooler nights and grey days. So my card "Welcome Spring" was inspired by the more dreary days we've had lately (outside of card) with the hope for less grey and more colours soon (inside of card).
I have to apologize for the poor photos. If tomorrow is sunny, I will try to re-take them.
Next on the blog hop is the talented Heather. 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!
Edit: I forgot to mention that the window on the front of my card is covered with vellum and sprayed with a glitter mist (unfortunately you can't see that in the photo). I used the vellum so you could see a hint of colour from the inside when the card is closed. The inspiration for the card came from Isha, here.
