April Stampin' Stylin' Blog Hop

Welcome to the April Hop!  
You probably hopped over from Annie's blog, doesn't she have a knack for making beautiful and creative cards and projects?  This month I decided to go with the Spring theme and make a set of gifts as a "thank you" to give one of my hostesses.  

When I think of Spring flowers and butterflies immediately come to my mind.
Check out this gift trio I made!

The card pulls in all of the spring colors I can think of: pink, peach, yellow, green, turquoise and purple!

This cute little container is filled with paper clips but you can put candy, buttons, brads or any other small items in it!  If you are wondering where I got this cute little container, I recycled!  It is an empty container that usually has buttons/ brads in it from Stampin' Up!
This bookmark was so simple to make and the best part was that I just used all the extra dies that I had leftover!  It literally took me 2 minutes to make it!  Isn't the sentiment the best?  I love this set from the Mini, I really hope it stays!

Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White

    I love the card! I've gotta bring out that pack of paper again. Now that spring is finally starting to stick around, I'm all about these floral prints! Great job with the container. I've been wanting to do that. You may have just given me the push!
