Jaxsonville Starz Blog Hop & MOJO387: Time to Celebrate!

Welcome to the March Jaxsonville Starz Blog Hop. This month we are sharing fun Easter and spring projects to inspire you!

You may just be starting the blog hop, or, you may have come from Lee Conrey's fabulous blog. You can follow the full blog hop lineup below (bottom of my post) to move along from blog to blog so that you can see all of our new projects.

When I found out we would be doing Easter or spring cards this month I knew I wanted to do a spring card. At first I was thinking, "April showers bring May flowers...," and then it hit me! Worms!! April showers bring WORMS! The ground gets wet and the worms start surfacing and before you know it they are everywhere. So this month I decided to use one of Stampin' Ups! hostess sets called Time to Celebrate. It's got this great worm and a few other incredible images as well. Here's my card.

I wanted to give you a front view as well so that you could clearly see the layout. I was excited that I was able to combine my card with this weeks Mojo Monday card sketch.

Here's this week's Mojo Monday sketch and it's  fun one!

This card was so fun to make! Part of the reason it was so fun was because I got to use the new designer vellum from Stampin' Ups! Sale-a-Bration. With any $50 purchase during March you can get this vellum (12 sheets of 6 designs)... for FREE! I picked this design because it reminded me a little bit of rain drops and I wanted that as my "spring showers" background.

I love this kooky little worm with his glasses all askew. I can't help but grin when I look at him. I've been wanting to color him like this for quite some time now and I am so glad to have had the chance because I love the color combo (even if it isn't very wormy). I used Tempting Turquoise, Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizazz and Melon Mambo Stampin' Write Markers.

Well, that's all for today folks! I hope you enjoyed my card and thanks for stopping by. I look forward to seeing you all again for another Jaxsonville Starz Blog Hop next month! Happy Stamping! 

PS: If you didn't see my post earlier this week...I had exciting news! I was selected as part of the design team for a new weekly blog challenge called What Will You Stamp? It focuses on one stamp set a week and you not only get to see a lot of great ideas on how to use the stamp set from our design team, but, you also get to participate by submitting your own card designs! Please join me every Monday for some WWYS fun!
