Make like a bunny and blog hop!

 

(Did you come from Julie’s place? Great job! You have arrived safely!)

Hey there. . . thanks for stopping at Scrap Happens for the Operation Write Home bloghop! I’ll make this short and sweet. . . as you blog hoppers read this, I will be making a 300 mile journey to the nearest Hobby Lobby with my friend Kirsten in tow. :D We have been looking forward to this trip for a long time and the snow is starting to melt enough that we feel like we can make the trek safely. . . that’s what girls like us from the frozen tundra of Idaho have to do to get supplies, besides the local WalMart or online shopping! So my hopping will have to wait until Sunday. . . but here is a little treat for all of you!

Here is my springy card. . . there are a lot of things that remind me of spring. . . flowers, baby animals, ABOVE ZERO TEMPERATURES. . . and starting to plan a garden. . . one of my favorite things is fresh strawberries and blossoms on the fruit trees! Fruit papers and embellies are very IN this scrap season. . . most of this card is made by papers and stamps by IMAGINISCE called BERRYLICIOUS. I also used a “You’re Sweet” sentiment stamp by CTMH!

I followed one of the latest sketches from Stars & Stamps to make this card because well, those sketches are just one of my favorite things about Operation Write Home and the S&S blog! I can hardly wait for Sunday and the new sketch every week. I have printed each one and keep them in a binder. They are SO very handy when you are in need of a quick card idea or you just want to have fun using your scraps!

Blog candy time! Here are a few little sentiments for you to print to go along with your fruity scrap stash. I hope that you will get the opportunity to use them . . . maybe along with a future sketch challenge or something fun!

To use them, just right click for the bigger version and click save or print. . . if you have a photoshop program or something similar, you can resize them however you like.

Also, I am still dealing stamps and ink and such by my favorite company, Close To My Heart. Anyone who makes a purchase through me this month (March 1-31) Will be entered in a drawing to win a free MARCH Stamp of the Month Set. Here it is. . .

Just stop by my Close To My Heart shop any old time! These bunnies remind me of an old version of a Peter Rabbit book that I had when I was a little girl. I just love them and I couldn’t leave them out of the blog hop. . . they are bunnies, after all!!!

Thank you for stopping by. . . hop along now to Yvonne’s page . . . she is One Creative Momma for sure! Big hugs to all!
