lawnscaping blog hop: spring edition!

Hi peeps!

Welcome to the *spring* edition of the lawnscaping blog hop!  You should have arrived here via Christy Rueling.


With it being Easter weekend and all, I thought I'd whip up a bunny-in-a-jar:

 I even staged it with a chick-in-a-jar, for your viewing pleasure :)

I stamped my kraft card-base with a woodgrain pattern, and layered a white felt banner over that before adding my focal image.  I stamped a jar image, and then went in with the grass from "critters in the 'burbs" and the bunny from "silly valentine."  I stamped the banner on either side of the jar, to make it look longer, and used "sally's abcs" to spell out "happy 4 you."

The blog hop runs until April 8th, and we have many talented designers with projects to inspire you!  So grab a cup 'o coffee, and enjoy the browsing!  Comment along the way for a chance to win prizes.  Check out the lawnscaping blog for all the details.

Next, bunny-hop over to Brandi's blog!



ps, I'm also entering this card into this week's colourQ challenge, since I was inspired by their spring-time color palette.

Happy Easter, all!
