Lawnscaping Blog Hop: Spring

Hi everyone and welcome to the Lawnscaping Blog Hop!


So glad you're here! You should have come to me by way of the fabulous Gretchen! This month's theme is all about Spring! The hop runs from Friday, April 6th - Sunday, April 8th! 

Now sit back and relax and be prepared to be inspired. We have lots of designers so we want to make sure you have time to see them all! You have the whole weekend to hop along...
Make sure to comment on all of the blogs because there are LOTS of prizes to be won! All the details can be found on the Lawnscaping home page (http://lawnscaping.blogspot.com).

Yay! This is my first Blog Hop so I hope you like what I've made! I have two cards to share with you:

Thinking about spring, the first thing that comes into my head is flowers and Who loves flowers? Bees! :)


Supply list:
- Lawn Fawn stamps: "Gnome Sweet Gnome", "Chevron Backdrops" and "Flutter By"
- Copics
- Versamark ink
- Memento "Tuxedo Black" ink
- Twine

For my second card I "created" some new critters to join the existing Lawn Fawn Critters on the Farm :) I love horses and I thought this little scene has some Spring feeling. Isn't the little pony the cutest? If you have already seen my Panda card, you know I'm playing with the selective ink technique lately ;) I used the unicorn from Lawn Fawn Critters Ever After for the horse and the toy from Pa Rum Pa Pum Pum for the pony. I hope you feel inspired and try this!

Also, I'm participating with this card on the current Lawnscaping challenge that is about coloring :)


Supply list:
- Lawn Fawn stamps: "Critters on the Farm", "Critters Ever After" and "Pa Rum Pa Pum Pum"
- Lawn Fawn Upbeat kraft paper
- Copics
- Mr Huey's mist "Dewey"
- Memento "Tuxedo Black" ink
- Memento "Tuxedo Black" marker
- Distress ink "Vintage Photo"
- White embossing powder and Versamark ink

Cristina! Oh my gosh, girl, you've done it again! You've completely knocked me off my feet with your creativity! I have been WISHING for a Lawn Fawn horse ever since Critters On The Farm came out, and here, I could have made one with the Critters Ever After unicorn! And the pony from Pa-Rum-Pa-Pum-Pum? You are a GENIUS!

I totally love the bee card, too. Bold and bright.
