Grass Isn't the Only Thing Growing

Spring is here, which means the sound of lawn mowers can once again be heard in our neighborhood. And there's nothing quite like a freshly mowed lawn (and the smell it brings), is there?

As you can tell from the card I made today, grass isn't the only thing growing...

I love the sentiment that goes with the A Muse mower! How fun!!!

The May Blog Hop

It's time for another A Muse Creative Consultant Blog Hop! How incredibly fun!

If you are participating in the blog hop, you should have come from Samantha's blog which is where the blog hop begins. My blog is the second spot in the hop.

I had a lot of fun creating the card for this hop. I used the cushioned in comfort stamp set and did some paper piecing on the image. I also used the same gingham paper for the sentiment to provide some continuity.

A simple button is the only embellishment I used and I chose a clean and simple layout, too.

I used a nestability to cut out the oval hardwood floor on which the chair and table are placed. I popped the image up to give it some depth.

The sentiment reads: Thanks so much for brightening my day!

Now on to your next stop Amber's blog. I hope you will enjoy this hop and leave comments along the way.
