Deedee's Digis Time to Bloom Blog Hop!!


Here in the northeast, signs of Spring are starting to pop up as the first crocus can be seen and buds are starting to grow on the trees. What a welcome change after a very challenging winter! Join the Deedee's Digis Design Team today as we celebrate the (almost) start of this very special season with a "Time to Bloom" blog hop!
If this is your first stop on the hop, be sure to visit the Crafting with Deedee's Digis blog, where you will find the directions for participating in the hop. You will also find a chance to win the grand prize of a $15 credit to our store, AND a little gift for you!
To celebrate the hop today, I made this bright Spring card featuring "Joy and Blessings". I just love this adorable butterfly and I love her umbrella even more!! I colored the image with copics, using the pastels of Spring. I picked a cheery designer paper that went with the design and put that up against the embossed background. The sentiment is from another set, "Bloom Where You Are Planted", to fit my card better.
Your next stop on the hop is Kelly S!
