I spent part of yesterday cruising through the Operation Write Home March Bunny Hop looking at wonderful cards and projects made with spring and the overseas troops in mind. I found many inspirational ideas that I bookmarked and hope to incorporate into my creations this month. The ladies of the hop did a great job and their effort was appreciated here in my home.
I managed to complete a card and a layout this weekend in between not feeling so well. The layout was for Scrapping The Moments for a layout tag which will be published at the end of the month. Once it is published I will include it here. I felt it came out great since the primary photo was actually ME, a subject I seldom scrap.
The card I completed was this weeks challenge at Hambo Stamps. Their Hoedown has been great. With each card I complete to their standards, I receive a free digi image to use on my projects. As long as I participate, I get a new image. This weeks image was this cute little lion with two phrases. We were to use him, one phrase and stripes for a manly card. This was my first attempt at using hemp string and staples on a card. I had seen them used on a layout and just fell in love with these embellishments. I am hoping to use them again on more layouts based on my hubby and other male family members. I think it really adds some dimension to the project.

Well, gotta go check that rising yeast.
Until next time...
