We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop! 

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, and I'm the first stop on this month's hop. If you came from the awesome artwork of Nancy Klein then you are in the right place! 

I just love this Blossom Patterned Paper, and decided I wanted to create a Spring card using the flowers found in the Blossom Workshop on the Go Cardmaking Kit.  Aren't these flowers just fabulous. I used the Pear Ink to stamp the stems, and then used Lagoon and Smoothie Ink to stamp the first layer of flower in second generation, then stamped the second layer in first generation. The centers of the flowers are stamped with Canary.  The sentiment is stamped in Archival Black ink, and I masked the stamp so that I could stamp it in 2 locations. I used Glacier Thick Twine and the Coral Reef Sequins to dress the card up.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Rosalynd Kelly and she always has amazing art to share.

If you get lost along the way you can come back here, below I have the entire blog hop list for you.
