April Cloud9 Blog Hop

Hello there! Welcome to the April Cloud9 Blog Hop! Has spring finally arrived in your neck of the woods? We finally made it out of the 40s, and had temperatures in the 60s over the weekend. I feel like a new person!

Suzanne chose a beautiful springy tablescape for this month's inspiration picture.  Here it is, from the Coffee Rings and Southern Things Blog.


I came home last night to my Wplus9 order (thank you, Dawn, you are the best!) and couldn't resist playing with new stamps. I have two words for you: Quilt Prints. You need it in your life, trust me.

Pops of bold color is what I pulled from this month's inspiration pic.

(See what I mean about Quilt Prints?)

I originally intended to layer another piece of cardstock on top so that the pattern just peeked out from the left side. BUT, I couldn't bring myself to cover it up. So, a trusty banner and a button help define my sentiment (Blanket Stitched Blooms). Oh the possibilities!

I am so glad that you've stopped by to see me today, I hope you'll play along with this month's Cloud9 Blog Hop with the chance to win a fabulous Wplus9 prize as well as join the Inspiration Team as next month's Guest Designer! You have until 10 am on April 12th to link up with us over on the Cloud9 Blog.

Also be sure to check out the amazing creations from the rest of the inspiration team:
