Clear Dollar Stamps Monthly Blog Hop!

Welcome !


 It's APRIL and we just got snow. 
 ACK! Will spring EVER arrive??? 

Did you arrive  here from 
Nancy's Blog?

If so, you are in the right spot!

If not and you want to see the
 hop from the start -
head over to
 Lori's Blog 
and start from the beginning!

The blog hop theme this month is
 inspired by the quote 
" Earth Laughs in Flowers" 
by Ralph Waldo Emerson.

I took inspiration from the newly hatched frogs
 croaking my my backyard to create this card:


I used three different Clear Dollar Stamps sets for this card :
Hoppy Day, Sentimental Flowers and Help me Bloom.

The image is colored with colored pencil and 
blended with mineral spirits.
I stamped the flowers then cut them out and 
popped them up with mounting tape to add dimension.

Be sure to leave a comment at EACH blog
 for your chance to win a great prize!!!
 2 lucky winners will each receive a
 $10 gift certificate for the CDS store for
 purchase of clear or digital stamps ONLY.

Winners will be announced on April 20th
RIGHT HERE, so be sure to 
stop back!!

I'm sure she has something delightful to share with you!

See you soon!
Barb

Your little frog is so cute and would definitely put a smile on anyone's face who would receive it. I've not used pencils with the mineral spirits, technique I've gotta try.
