Sparkle N Sprinkle's Spring Fling Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,
Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Spring Fling blog hop!  If you hopped here by way of Eleanor's blog then you are in the right place!  Otherwise, you might like starting from the beginning at the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog to become eligible for FIVE great prizes. There are 2 grand prizes and 3 “random” prizes that are attached to 3 different designers blogs.


This month’s hop is celebrating Spring, St. Patty’s Day and Easter. Each of our Sparkle Team Designers is  sharing their designs based on something from the 3 upcoming holidays.

A reminder that through the end of the month, the Sparkle Team presents Art Deco, People, Fantasy & Gail Burton images on special - 15% off!!! To view all our specials for the month, including some fabulous glitters, embossing powders and other SNS products, just click here to go to the specials section of the Sparkle N Sprinkle store.

Important things first!

Two lucky people will win a Grand Prize - a Stamp Set of the winner's choice mounted on cling cushion. As you visit each artist's blog, there is the possibility of winning one of THREE more prizes! It's a secret though. No one knows who "those three" are except for Brenda, the team coordinator...so be sure to leave a comment on EACH blog to be eligible.

I chose to focus on Easter cards so here is the 1st card I'd like to share with you today:

Benjamin Bunny has hopped over and joined the blog hop.


He stopped by to give you an Easter idea.

This new set really inspired me for the upcoming Easter season. Hope it inspires you, too.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you've enjoyed my cards as well as all the other designers cards on the hop. 

Don't forget, to become eligible to win a Grand Prize, please leave a comment on EACH blog. Winners of the mini prizes are selected when they leave a comment on the mystery designers blog also.

Good luck and have fun on the rest of the hop. Click here to hop on down the bunny trail to see what Gerlinde has created for you. Have fun!!!

Love all of your cards, Barbara, especially the "lamb" card. Love the new set.

Donna Ellis said...

Barbara, your cards are so pretty, with the most beautiful use of ribbons. The two yellow cards are completely different with the contrast in the pastel and regular yellow. The egg layering is super cute, and the woven ribbons is also very pretty!

April said...

These cards are so bright and cute. I just love the bows and the ribbon run through the frame. Great job!

Denise Bryant said...

Wowser Barbara - you have been a very busy gal. All are very pretty, but the third one is my favorite with the ribbon weaving. Also, I like your falling eggs. :)

Great job, Barbara. Great job with the ribbon bows. I especially like the last card and the way you wove the ribbon in and out. Very creative!

judys said...

So much fun (the Easter Eggs falling) and the cards are great too! You make wonderful use of all the different stamps and the ribbons make them all special.

Kathy Vogel said...

I particularly like your third card with the chicks in the windows. I really like how you weaved the ribbon through the scallops on the side. The bow & daisies are lovely as well.

Katy said...

This is the first time I have seen eggs falling from the blog! LOL! Your cards are so wonderful. I love Benjamin Bunny! And his card with all of that yellow! Beautiful and so springy! The lamb is so pretty and with the embossing too! And the 3rd is so sweet with those little chicks! I love how you have those pretty bows on all of your cards. I need to learn to do that! Thank you!

Frann said...

All 3 cards are very pretty...wonderful colors on all of them. So happy and Springy.

Pretty cards. Love the ribbon threaded through the edging of the mat diecut. Great idea.

Shanna Shands said...

Your ribbon is so inspiring bows and weaving. I love the banner die you used and the chick with the butterfly flower stamp genius!

E. Marie said...

Barbara, you did an amazing job. Three wonderful cards that are so different yet so inspiring. Love the way you wove the ribbon on the third card. Your little chick signing your name is as cute as your cards!!

Julie Z said...

Fun, Fun, Fun. Sweet, sweet, sweet. They're ALL really great cards Barbara! Particularly love the saying on the egg (& the eggs behind) on the first card. And Everything about the third card - that one is my favorite!!
