With The Rain Comes All Things Beautiful Blog Hop

I am so excited to be a part of this blog hop! The theme is spring and I am so ready for Spring to begin~! If you got here from Inga then you are on the right track. If you want to start at the beginning of the hop then you want to start at Monica and hop from there.

For this hop I wasn't sure what to do. My five year old son complained that it always rains here and I told him that if it wasn't for the rain, there would not be any rainbows. This inspired the card that I ended up making. I hope you like it!

Products Used:

Create a Critter - Cloud/rainbow

DCWV Celebrations Stack - Patterned Paper

Core'dinations Glitter Cardstock - pink, orange, green, teal

Black Cardstock, White Cardstock

Black Gel Pen

Twine from the Twinery - Maraschino, Mandarin, Peapod (My Favorite Twine EVER)

Misc Orange Ribbon (found at a garage sale- no label)

Now on to the blog candy...

Who doesnt love Martha Stewart border punches? I know that I do... This one is perfect for all things SPRING! I will choose a winner on Sunday night with Please become a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this post and a way to get ahold of you if you are the winner!


Also, Monica at scraps2treasure is offering an over-all blog candy for those who are hopping along with us. She decided since the hop was about spring to to do a whole bunch of "spring flowers". To be eligible you must become a follower along the blog trail, leaving a comment on each and every blog. On Saturday she will ask her buddy Randy ( to select a blog number (from the list), and a comment number from that blog. Please make sure you have left a reliable way to contact you (email is best, in the safe format of **** at **** dot com ) so you can be notified by her personally. If you don't, she’ll have to select another winner.”

Love Holly

Love the rainbow! So pretty!! And I've never even seen that MS punch. It would be so appropriate to use on some of my hop winner cards I make for my blog-candy winners. I guess I now know what I'll be looking for at Michael's with my next 40-50% off coupon!!
