PPPR "Spring Break" blog hop

Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' "Spring Break" blog hop!!  You should have arrived at my blog after visiting the lovely Nanne.

 There are two special freebie files available for free only today and tomorrow (after that it can be purchased in the PPPR store).  The link to the freebie is on Lisa's blog.

Today's blog hop theme is  "Spring Break" and the design team will be showcasing spring and spring break  projects using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' files.   Here is what I created for the hop -

I created this trio of cards with a spring theme.  I wanted to keep the cards simple and available to be used for a variety of opportunities.  I have been inspired by all of the spring flowers appearing in our yard and our neighbors.  I love tulips especially in a variety of colors.  I have had this background paper in my stash for awhile now and thought it would work perfect for these cards rather than using a stamped sentiment.  Here

To create my cards I used the following PPPR files -

PPPR "Spring Garden" cutting files
PPPR "Stamp Frames" cutting files

***There is blog candy for our hop today*** -

To be eligible for the blog candy, please be a follower of each of the blogs on our hop today as well as leave a comment on each visit too.  You can get extra chances to win the candy by "liking" the PPPR facebook page and/or subscribing to the PPPR Newsletter.

Today also begins a new challenge with Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons -

For more details on the rules of the challenge as well as to link up your entry, please go HERE.  One lucky entry will be randomly selected to win a $20 gift certificate to the PPPR store.
