CardzTV Spring Blog Hop

Welcome to the CardzTV Spring Blog Hop!!  You should have arrived at my blog after visiting the lovely Elaine.  If you didn't start at the beginning of the hop, then just click here and it will take you to the top. 
Today's hop is all about spring and Easter and we were challenged by Mary to make a project with this theme in mind using one of her wonderful stamp sets.  I needed a thank you for a dear friend who helped me with carpooling one of my daughter's to dance team especially  to the dreaded early morning practices - I am so spoiled:-)  I remembered this great basket tutorial I saw on youtube by StampTV a long time ago and decided to give it a try.  You will probably recognize this basket as I have seen it used a lot with different variations.  For the video tutorial go here.  I made a very simple matching card using only paper, sentiment and a sticker.  I filled the basket with some yummy chocolates and a primrose.  The stamp set I used is CardzTV stamps  "Think Spring" set which is probably my favorite one of Mary's.  




I have a bit of blog candy for you today.  I do ask that you be a follower and have a U.S. shipping address.  Please leave me a comment and a way to get ahold of you too. 



Now it is time for you to hop on over to Gloria's blog and I guarantee you will be glad you did.  She is so creative!!  Have a blessed day and don't forget to play along with the challenge to make a spring/Easter project and post it at CardzTV.  Mary will be giving away a stamp set.
