Spring Themed Blog Hop!!

It sure hasn't felt like Spring here in Kansas (we received several inches of snow over the weekend), but I do have a Spring-themed card and project to share as part of a blog hop that I am participating in!  Scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the entire list of participants and make sure to click on their blog and check out some Spring things! 
The card I created uses Polka Dot Basics II from PTI and a stamp set called Polka Dot Blooms by There She Goes stamps!  I finally broke down and purchased this mini set and it is just so cute!  I have been eyeing TSG stamps for awhile now and definitely will order more....good quality and fast shipping.  Here is a close-up of the images.
I did use the "happy spring" from the stamp set Egg Hunt by PTI for the sentiment.  The flower punched border is a new punch by EK Success and I added a tiny Aqua Mist strip behind the flower centers! 

Ok, now here is a picture of the entire Spring project!  I just love how it turned out!
I made a tiny Easter Basket using this video on SplitcoastStampers.
Here are some other pics of the basket.....was very easy and my daughter said, "Is that for me?"  How cute was that?!  I told her I will make her one!
So, what do you think?  Springy enough for you all?  I am loving these colors together!    Aqua Mist and Hibiscus Burst!

Alright now, here is the list of all the other participants in this Spring themed Blog Hop!  Go check them out and don't forget to leave some love!!  Happy hopping!


Have a wonderful Spring day!!
