March has Arrived


Hello, Friends!
Welcome to the Release Day Party for Claudia and Company!
If you're just joining us, you'll want to pop over to the C&Co. Blog and start the hop there. One lucky winner will win the ENTIRE DIGI RELEASE!! You'll have until 11:59PM EST on March 3rd to comment and the winner will be announced on Friday.

My first card for you today showcases one of the 4 images created by artist John Grutta and it's called Spring Flowers. I think this image is so lovely and I already have several ideas in my head for how to use it! For today's card though, I chose to keep the stamp completely as is and pair it with this Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 paper and Jillibean Soup Ribbon that made me think of sunflowers.

My second card showcases Easter Teddy Bear, also designed by John Grutta. Although, heehee...I turned Mr. Easter Teddy into Mr. Birthday Teddy for today! :)
Isn't he cute! When I saw those balloons, I instantly thought this Teddy would make a very sweet birthday card for a wee little one. The layout on this card was also inspired by the Mojo Monday 176 sketch a couple weeks ago. I've used Basic Grey Hopscotch for papers and embellishments; cutting out the flowers from one of the pages and using the coordinating buttons as well. The "happy" is made from K & Co. dimensional stickers.

And those are the cards I have for you today! If you'd love to get your hands on these stamps to play with too, be sure and complete the hop---you could be the lucky winner of ALL 5 of today's stamps! You're next stop on today's HOP is

Have a great day, Everyone!
