Barbara: Easter/Spring Hop


I hear the geese returning and today I saw a robin. There are even a few crocus flowers peeking through the snow! SPRING must be coming...I hope!! Our next challenge for The Creative Cowgirls is Easter/ Spring. We are having a FABULOUS SPRING/EASTER HOP ALONG . Our challenge is to create a paper craft with the theme of Spring or Easter! The WINNER of our HOP will be awarded a spot as a Guest Designer for our April 17th and June 1st challenges
You can begin HERE at the Cowgirl's Home page. (The posse has made so many wonderful paper craft projects, you will be inspired :)
Our Hop is being sponsored by none other than Crafty Ribbons.

The winner will be gifted with a collection of these gorgeous ribbons:

The WINNER will also receive 3 images of their choice from CHI CHI MEMORIES.


The directions for this fun hop and the Hop Order can be found HERE

 This is the card that I designed. There are two pictures so that you could see this Twisted Easel Card from a different angle. It really is an easy card to make, If you google Twisted Easel Card, there are several wonderful tutorials to follow.
