Easter Blog Hop

Morning Folks......I couldn't resist having a little Easter Blog Hop with one of my favourite challenge blogs...yes..."The Pink Elephant"...they are having a real fun weekend with lots of challenges...competitions...great tutorials....I love this one from my "Funky Hand" teamie Carol for a gorgeous little easter basket.....lots of candy and prizes....so if you haven't joined in the fun yet....get yourselves over there pronto.
And here is my card for their "Think Spring" challenge.......

Papers: Crate: Blue Hill Collection
Image: Penny Black
Sentiment: Doodlebug Mixed Up Alphabet
American Crafts: Foam Thickers
Ribbon: American Crafts
and my fave punch from Martha Stewart
the grand kiddies came to play at Grandma's yesterday....the weather was glorious and we had lunch outdoors....just like summer.....long may it continue but I am falling a bit behind with all the stuff I have to finish this week..... but I thought what the heck......what's one more day....all work and no play...makes Jill a very dull girl.....so decided to have a little fun and play along.....tomorrow is another day......isn't that what they say and it was great to have a day off from the messy inky fingers.
But that was yesterday.....up with the birdies this morning.....off to walk "The Budster" and back to the old crafting malarkey and oh dear the weather is not looking so great today.....yikes there is even snow forecast for later this week up in my neck of the woods........catch up with you all later.....Hugs Kath xxxxxx

P.S. To answer Tina's question....I used Fiskars Ribbon Slot punch but forgot to mention it in the materials list.

  2. As Scarlet O'Hara said, "Fiddle-dee-dee, I'll think about that tomorrow."

    Very cute card. I love your use of tags. I haven't gotten around to using tags on a card yet. I must do that.

    Have a good day and I really hope you don't get snow. At least I've had enough snow for the year!!!

    Blessings,
    Christine
