Spring Fever Blog Hop!


Happy March 1st! Hopefully you made your way here from Michelle at Scrapping with my Bug.
With all the rain we go last night, I'm sure feeling the spring fever... if this snow will ever go away!
So here is my spring inspired card.
It's my very first side-step card. It took a few tries, but I got it! The watering can is from Popourri and the flowers are from create a critter. The sentiment is HAPPINESS from Stampin' Up.

I was drawing a crafting'block' (like writers block?!) when making this, and finally thought to add some buttons and color. I'm not sure how I feel about the finished product, but overall I love it. Here's a side view:

I can post the instructions on how to make this type of card for anyone interested! But I just googled 'side step card' and found some various patterns. Of course I had to add ribbon and flowers :)
Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to follow- leave your blog address and I'll certainly return the favor! Your next stop is off to the most talented Sarah at Pink Cricut!
~Happy Hopping ~

  63. Sidestep cards are so much fun you can use such a wide variety of embellishments. Great job. You must love your job-middle schoolers think they are so funny and that they are always right. I have a grumpy 7th grader because he broke his leg. Thanks for the idea and to all of the great teachers out there.
