Spring Fever

Hello and Welcome to the PaperHaus Spring Fling Blog Hop! We are thrilled that you joined us in celebrating the release of the Spring Issue of PaperHaus Magazine! We are excited to share all of the amazing projects and inspiration in it with you! Please take some time to Like us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/thepaperhaus)

click here to view The new Spring issue!
 
 If you are joining me from Leah’s blog, you are right on track. To start at the beginning go to the PaperHaus blog
 
I've got Spring Fever and decided this was the perfect opportunity to create a fun springy card using my dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.

 I started by cutting the Little Pink Bicycle twice and piecing the parts together. The flowers in the basket are from Build a Flower Embellishment #2. The Grass Border is layered twice, with the bike tucked between the layers. I inked the background onto a Classic Oval Silver Stacker, layering it atop the Scalloped Oval Stacker Nesting die. Of course we need a couple Mini Dimensional Butterflies! The Swedish Spring Oval Frame has the perfect dainty touch to bring it all together. For some fun texture, I embossed the yellow banner with the Flutter Bys Embossing Plate, and the card base with the Dotted Swiss Embossing Plate. The card base was then cut from the Classic Coved Rectangle Silver Stacker, layered with the Scalloped Coved Rectangle Stacker Nesting Die.
 
Now, how about a fun little prize for stopping by! Actually, I've got two! 

 Follow my blog, and leave me a comment telling me what you love most about spring for your chance to win! The winner will be announced on March 8th. The hop will be running from March 1st through the 7th to allow you plenty of time to check out all the inspiraion on each of the members blogs.....lots of prizes along the way too!

 Next stop on the hop is   Heather Leopard

I loooove this card! My two favorite color combos are yellow and blue and yellow and pink and you just hit them both with this one! Awesome!!!!! My fav thing about spring is by far the end of all things snowy. I really really REALLY don't like all this snow. :(

Miriam Prantner said...

I am LOVING this card! SO sweet, great use of dies and layers! What I love most about spring is the color and the warm weather. I love seeing things bloom and green up (even if it does wreak havoc with my allergies!)

Hi Jodi! Actually, one of the things I love about spring and waiting for - is riding bike, when all these piles of snow melt and the weather is warm. So your card is super springy for me.

Truly beautiful card! What i love most about Spring? Well, what do i NOT love about it? To me, Spring means hope, renewal and opportunities. A whole Summer to look forward to! :P Thanks for the chance to win 2 wonderful prizes! :)

Linda Pekrul said...

What beautiful work you do! I'm very happy to be a new follower. My very favorite part of Spring is when the Canada Geese come back in March. I love listening to them honk and carry on out on the still frozen pond. A few hardy souls will probably be arriving any day now! YAY!

Monica said...

I didn't realize there were so many designs. I love this. I love spring mornings when I can go out right around dawn and take pictures of my flowers when they still have the dew on them. My roses look the best especially with the a fresh new morning light. I'm a new follower and look forward to seeing what all you have done with the CL Designs.

Adorable card! I love all the colors of spring! I love seeing things come back to life! (leaves on the trees, the grass is green, flowers are blooming, etc.) It is hard not to be happy in spring!

isa@scrapdisa said...

Your card is adorable, and in particular the bicycle. I love your color combo. What I prefer about spring is the blooming flowers, and the sunny but not to hot days. I'm missing it, but I know it's just around the corner. :)

Lisa P said...

Your card is so cute...love that sweet little bike! My favorite part of spring is the weather. Not too hot yet, but warm enough to be able to stroll around outside!

SHartl said...

Your card is the sweetest! Love the fun springtime colors and motif. And speaking of spring, I feel spring in the today! It's nice and warm, and I even have flowers on my rose bushes!

Pamela Romero said...

Love the card, it makes me want to jump on a bike and ride away!. My favorite thing about spring happens first in the garden. It's the renewal, the planting of seeds to start something new to grow like Tomato's peppers etc. Then when this starts, I start feeling renewed too. :)

Ava Gavloski said...

Wow...what a Beautiful card. I love your details. I have followed your blog for a while now. I love the warmer weather when it comes to spring. One of my two favorite times of the year. Not to hot and not too cold. And then all the Beautiful colors come about and the blooming flowers shine through. I love this time of year. Thanks for the chance to win some goodies. HUGS

Cheryl Fricker said...

Your card is so cute...love it! The only thing I don't like about Spring is the mud, and constantly having to wipe the dogs feet of. I think that I love the smell of Spring the best. The air smells so fresh and clean with all the trees and flowers starting to bud and bloom. I'm a new follower on your blog. Thank you for giving us a chance to win your RAK : )

BethW said...

Your card is delightful.I so love the blue and yellow together!
Unfortunately Spring is the rainy season here-but I know it means planting seasons is coming and that means fresh tomatoes!

Jennifer Grace said...
