CSDivas' "Spring Fling" Blog Hop 2012 {Day 2}

Spring Fling Blog Hop!!  March 12th to 14th
Welcome to Day 2 of the Hop
Be sure to go HERE if you missed Day 1

It’s time to celebrate SPRING!!  So come hop along with us
For 3 days as we share our Spring projects.  The Divas have prepared
a wide range of projects that encompass all things SPRING!

There will be one prize offered to one random person.  To be eligible
you MUST leave a comment on each and every Diva’s blog on all three days,
and on each daily post here at CSD, letting us know that you have commented
on each of the blogs.

While you are hopping along, you may find that a Diva may be offering
a prize on their own personal blog as well.  So you definitely won’t want to
skip over anyone.
Did you get a chance to see all the lovely projects the Divas DT created yesterday?
Great inspiration from them all!
So, yesterday I talked about the lovely blooms that offer a cheeriness to your mood in spring time.  I also love all the bright colors that envelope our idea of Spring.  So, I just had to play with the March 6th Color Challenge at the Outlawz and use this color palette...(and add a rosette)
 Isn't that just screaming SPRING IS HERE!!!!???!!!!

So, I gathered some random dp from a stack I received as Blog Candy a little while ago.  It is a small stack by Rowena Stott.  I grabbed my new Unity Ippity Itty Bitty - fabulous girl, and started paper piecing.  I used some of the papers from the Quick Quotes Cherry Truffle stack for my rosette and added a pretty pink button.  I grabbed some tulle from my stash, Harvest Orange 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon and started to put it all together.

My sweet daughter Ariana, will be turning 4 years old on April 3rd and she is the epitome of a girly girl.  She will really enjoy this sweet birthday card.  She is the only person in our household who celebrates a Spring Birthday.  It was fun putting this all together.  Did I mention, I really love this color palette? LOL!

I also chose to work with the sketch from the current Chick Challenge #21

FUN! ! ! !

I will be entering this into a few other challenges to, since they inspired me to create!!!
It doesn't get much girly than dresses and flowers and pretty ribbon, right? LOL

Tulle and Harvest Orange 3Girl JAM ribbon
1 - Rosette, 2 - roses from I Am Roses, 1- button
3 dp all from The Country Diary of An Edwardian Lady paper stack (used on dresses)

 here is a close up of the paper pieced dresses

For my blog candy, I will offer up some 'random' Unity Stamps to one lucky follower and commenter.  Unfortunately, due to personal finances right now and the high prices of international shipping, I will only be able to mail the candy to a winner in the US or Canada.  I really hate to do this, because I have a lot of lucky Blends that live over seas.  I have never not included them, and have been able to ship to as far as India in the past.   But, the time will come when I am offering candy again (some time in the future) where you will ALL be included, once again.  I hope you can understand.

To win, be sure to follow my blog and stop back all three days for the hop and leave a comment on each day's post.
