MFP Blog Hop, CCEE Challenge, Stampin B's Challenge

This first card was done with a newly released set called Spring Has Sprung from Mark's Finest Papers.  There is a blog hop going on today showing you fabulous creations by the Design Team members using this springy set.  To get started, click HERE.  (However, please save that click until you have seen the rest of my post.....lol!!!!)



Brenda is our hostess for the Stampin B's this week, and she asked us to use a bird/birds on our card.  Tosh, this month's hostess for the CCEE Challenge, challenged us to use embossing folders.  Well, both challenges were right up my alley AND could be combined.....which is a good thing as the new pup is keeping me hopping!!!!  If you need to know the company of either stamp, just ask for it in a comment and I'll get back to you....I forgot to write it down.   The border punches used on both cards are by Martha Stewart.  I also used Spellbinders dies and a SU embossing folder.

I'm so happy to check out your beautiful cards today. Spring Has Sprung...makes you want to buy that set just because of the name. LOL It is an absolutely adorable image and you've dressed it up beautifully.
You've done such a great job with your Stampin B's card...so pretty! I think I used that little birdie on Valentine card recently. I see you used your favorite red, white, and black with a bit of blue...looks awesome.

Your cards are just adorable. Embossing on both of them, too. I like the colors you chose for your birdy card and the pretty border punch.
I know you are so ready for spring and no more shoveling snow for a while.
