For today's hop I've crafted two cards...I couldn't help my self :)

The Happy Easter artwork is a part of the Chick To Chick Clear Stamp Set
I used a selection of watercolor pencils from Faber Castell to color in the design.
I cut around the image and then attached small loops of different ribbons to the
bottom edge before attaching to the background paper (by Doodlebug Design).
May Arts Ribbons used: Pink Satin w/ Knotted Edge; Light Green Grosgrain Dots;
Yellow Printed Stitch Scallop EdgeYellow Checkered

Spring Blessings card is a mixture of stamping on different colored papers and then
cutting out.  The sentiment and rubber boots are from the April Showers Stamp Set 
All of the papers used are from the new Doodlebug Design's Springtime Collection.

May Arts Ribbons used: Light Green Grosgrain Dots; Pink Burlap String

That's all from me!  Don't forget to visit the May Arts and Penny Black Blogs

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut

I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
