Spring Blog Hop

I was asked to take part in a Spring Blog Hop with some of my papercrafting friends and I'm really excited to share a couple of spring creations with you today!
Life Is Good Wall Hanging
I was inspired to create this after seeing the one By Katie Watson in the Feb/Mar issue of "Simply Handmade" so it's not an original idea but I did change it up a bit...
I recycled some heavy weight chipboard from the inside of an old binder to make the wall hanging it's self and then painted it a pale blue. The houses were designed with the Graphically Speaking Cricut cartridge and my DS software and cut from lightweight chipboard and pattern paper. I used Pooh & Friends to cut Sun, Tree & Kite..
Paper: Basic Grey "Lemonade"
Misc: EK Border punch, BG buttons,Offray ribbon,TAC eyelets, DMC floss, Thickers glittered chipboard letters, Zip Dry glue
Beautiful Butterfly Card
I used the butterfly from my Home Accents cartridge and cut 2 sizes that would nest and removed the antenna from the smaller butterfly with my Kai detail scissors. I scored along the side of each body so the wings would be 3-D then I adhered the smaller butterfly in the center with a glue line and placed 2 buttons over that. The base card was stamped with VersaMark and a retired TAC hostess stamp set called "Be Of Good"... I used a 7/8"coral ribbon to finish it!
The inside is 2 layers of pattern paper and white cardstock that have been punched with my corner rounder and then stamped with a butterfly image from the same set in pink grapefruit ink.
Paper: Basic Grey "Porcelain" , Bazzill green cardstock
Stamps: The Angel Company "Be Of Good" TC-310
Misc: BG buttons,VersaMark, VersaMagic ink, EK corner rounder,
Offray ribbon,Glue lines
I hope I have inspired you create some spring projects of your own...
