Think Spring Blog Hop

Hello Blog World!! I hope you are having a great start to your friday morning!

Welcome to the Think Spring Blog Hop!! If you came here from Nancy then you are in the right place, if not you can start at the begging here. You don't want to miss a single awesome creation!!
My favorite part of Spring is all the family get togethers we have, I live in South Texas and the summers here are brutal so we have all our bbq's and trips to the zoo and days in the park playing baseball during spring when the weather is still nice! I love to see all the beautiful flowers blooming and the spring rain is the best!

(I had a death in the family so I  have been preoccupied with family things so I didn't get to finish my project I am working on it and will post pics in a little while Please come back and take a look :) )

Ok finally!! Here is my project!! I made these A2 sized cards with the carrier for them ( this is my first attempt to make the little case I just learned as I went but I forgot to write down the sizes that I cut and sccored it, i will make another and give a tutorial!

This is the outside of the carry case for the cards, the ribbon that is tied at the bottom will not be there I had to add it because I didn't have any of the velcro circles to hold it where it can open and close
Here is the inside when you open it up there is a flap that covers the cards it is supposed to have little velcro circles to hold it closed but i didn't have any i will add them later
This are the cards inside the pocket
These are the cards
Here is a close up of this adorable little Pixie
 I really like the way it turned out!I am getting a little more comfortable with my prismacolored pencils! I enjoyed making them very much I love all the beautiful spring colors and the little digi stamp was just perfect for the cards I wanted to make!!

Materials used:
  • Swiss Pixie digi stamp ( C.Cs designs)
  • Prisma color pencils/ blending stumps/gamsol
  • Kraft Cardstock
  • ColorBok pastel pattern paper stack
  • handmade paper ( the fuzzy paper)
  • paper flowers
  • Sakura gel pen in green
  • Ribbon from Michaels
  • Sentiment  Inkadoo greetings stamp set
  • ATG gun/hot glue gun
  • buttons
  • Martha Stewart scoreboard
Ok time to get your hop on!! The next stop is Monica from Stampin Daisies!! Have a great time hopping I hope you finds tons of inspiration for Spring!!

I am also entering this into the following challenge:
Papercuts Challenge # 87- Buttons and Bows
(Oh and I forgot to announce the winner from last weekends blog hop I will announce the winner later today :) Sorry things have been crazy here.)
