Hippity Hopping into Spring!

I am so pleased you have stopped in to visit today!
If you are following the Stamping Boutique "Spring Fever" blog hop, you should have gotten here from Sara's Blog!
Are you having fun hopping with all my friends?

If you missed the beginning of the hop and need to start at the beginning, pop in and give Amanda some love... she's the first stop!

We are hosting a "Spring Fever" blog hop this weekend! We're all sick of the snow and would love a little sunshine and flowers to pop in so we decided to bring them on ourselves! And bring it we did!

You'll have to make sure you hop to every blog along the way and
make sure you comment on EACH blog to be eligible for the prize:
4 brand new spring images from The Stamping Boutique!
And if you've been paying attention while hopping, you've seen at least one example of every one of those 4 images today! Aren't they AMAZING?!? 

At the last stop of the hop, you'll land at The Stamping Boutique!
There will be an Inlinkz where you can post your comment after you have completed hopping! From this list, the winner will be chosen randomly!

The hop will run from Saturday, February 19th 12AM EST until Sunday, February 20th 6PM EST. After that time, the comments will be tallied and the winner will be randomly picked. Good luck... whoever wins is going to LOVE LOVE LOVE the new images Tracey has drawn!! Perfect to dispel the Winter Blahs!!

I consider it a privilege to work with the ladies on the Stamping Boutique Team! Tracey and Christy have truly created a masterpiece putting this team together!

One of our secret weapons is our Blog Coordinator: Amanda!
Among her many talents, she is a skilled sketch artist!
She created the sketch we are using for this Blog Hop:
The most amazing thing about a sketch is that 23 people on our team used the SAME design and have come up with 23 completely different interpretations of it, using the same 4 images!!! 

Here is mine:

I used the "Picket Fence" image!
I had a blast making this card... somehow it's therapeutic to take a perfectly good piece of paper and ripping it to shreds!
The paper is actually from a set of Digi Papers from Bearly Mine Designs, printed on plain cardstock.
I distressed all the edges with scissors and added Tim Holtz Walnut Stain.
The vines are Penny Duncan files cut on my Cricut.

I am just so happy to be a part of this hop and I hope you're enjoying yourself as much as we are!!

Your next stop is Suzi's Blog... knowing the Manic Msr. Weyremaster, you're in for a real treat!

Don't forget to leave me a little love so you can have a chance to win those FOUR images!!!

If you happen to need a break, here is the list of everyone who is hopping today:
Stacie  YOU ARE HERE!!!

Happy Hopping!!
