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
for your chance at the daily give-a-way happening...good luck!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
