Hello Friends! It is time again for Clear Dollar Stamps' monthly blog hop! You should have hopped on over from the lovely and talented Lori's blog, if not, head back to Lori's blog where the hop starts! Your next stop will be the adorable and crafty Jerusha's blog. BUT! before you go, I hope you will take a gander at my blog, and dont forget to comment! Our blog hop winners will be chosen from the comments left for the DT all during the hop!
Anyway.. I look forward to these blog hops every month ... I just love hopping around blogland to check out everyone's take on the same basic idea. This time, we were given a theme challenge....
An inspirational quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson: "The Earth laughs in flowers".
I took a bit of time to ponder this theme... I didnt want to do what one might first think of.. a flower card... I like flower cards, love to color flowers.. but there had to be something more.. the word "laughs" caught my eye and my imagination.. Laughing=fun. So, I came up with, what I think, is a fun take on the inspirational quote challenge.
I ended up using three different Clear Dollar Stamp sets .. the first being Hoppy Frogs .. I just cant help but laugh at that frog! The second is Tulip Wreath .. the tulips match the dp perfectly! And the third is Summer Blooms Dahlia .. the sentiment, which happens to be exactly our theme! The inspirational quote !! HA!!
This month's prize is definately worth joining in on the hop.. TWO lucky winners will recieve a $10 gift certificate to the Clear Dollar Stamps store!
**Winners will be randomly chosen from comments received on two DT member blogs. Winners will be announced on the CDS blog Wednesday, April 20th**
Ok, up next is Jerusha's blog! Thank you so much for joining in on this month's hop! Keep leaving comments! Remember the more comments, the more chances you have to be a winner! Good Luck!
