Good Luck-My Pink Stamper Blog Hop March 2012

Hello everyone!  Long time no see, huh?  I've been so busy...work, kids {my son is currently playing basketball AND baseball}, laundry {sometimes}, and construction at my house has kept me running around like a chicken with my head cut off!  But it's time for the My Pink Stamper Pinkalicious Blog hop...so I found some time to make a project sprinkled {more like COVERED} with glitter!!!  If you've come from Chelle (Paper Krate), then you're on the right track.  If you've just happened upon this post, make sure to go to My Pink Stamper's site to start from the beginning.

Our challenge for this month's blog hop was to THINK GREEN!  Saint Patty's is right around the corner after all....and what a fun time to think rainbows, pots of gold, leprechauns, and shamrocks.  I know it's not your traditional card giving holiday...but it IS another excuse for you to find some time to hit the craft table and give your Cricut a little love {and maybe some cuts that you wouldn't normally use}.

I used both my Cricut Imagine and my Cricut Expression for this project.  Loving the rainbows I'm seeing everywhere right now...I used that as my jumping off point.  There is a video below walking you through the entire creation of this card.

I also used the My Pink Stamper Itty Bitty-licious stamp set.  This set is full of fun little sentiments for your projects.

From here, your next stop will be Angela (Simple Creations).  Then keep hopping right along until you've arrived back at My Pink Stamper's site and play along with us in the challenge!  I've posted the entire blog hop order below for your convenience.

So how about a giveaway?  I have a My Pink Stamper Friend-Tastic stamp set to give away to one {LUCKY} person.  Just leave a comment here and tell me your favorite thing about March.  I'll choose a winner using Random.org on March 17th.

  36. Love the rainbow! I don't really have a favorite thing about March. I don't have any kids, so no spring break. My bday is in december, anniversary is a couple months away and hubby is military, so no vacation time....LoL! It's just March....it's a little warmer. That's what I love about it! HAHA!

  49. I love the difference of your card, it still screams March to me! I love the spring like winds that March brings-with the warmer weather of course. I don't like cold and dreary weather, so anything like winds or even the manure smell on fields lets me know that the warm weather is on its way!

  65. Beautiful card! Lovin' every single detail, especially the glitter and the embossing on the rainbow.....so cute!! TFS!

    I have several things I love about March. Besides St Patrick Day (so much fun!) and the return of spring and warm weather, I also enjoy this month because it's Women's History Month (YAY for women! lol) and MS Awareness Week is this month. Since my big sister has MS, this is a subject very close to my heart.

  81. Love the rainbow in your card. What do I like most about March? Well, I like it when it's like this year and warmer than usual because then I know that spring is really on its way. But I guess what I like best is that this is the month of my sister's birthday. pvg1020@yahoo.com
