Cardz TV Stamps Blog Hop!

First of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our son, James, who is 24 today! Love you!! Please scroll down to previous post from this morning to see my post for Jimmy's birthday. Thanks!



Welcome to Mary's CARDZ TV STAMPS BLOG HOP! You should have arrived here from MARY'S CARDZ TV blog, if not CLICK HERE to start at the beginning!

We are thrilled that you are hopping along with us today and tomorrow. You are going to go BUNNY-listic over all the EGG-cellent projects for Easter and Spring we are going to show you. I LOVE being on Mary's Design Team. Everyone is so talented, so nice, and just so fun to hang around in blogland!

This blog hop will run today, March 24 to midnight Sunday, March 25th. The Blog Candy WINNER will be announced the following Monday, March 26th over at Mary's CARDZ TV blog.  Mary will be giving 2 sets of CTV Stamps of the winner's choice for blog candy! 2 SETS! OF THE WINNER'S CHOICE!  WOW!!!

Here is a look at all the current stamp sets Mary has available to choose from..... decisions... decisions.... You can see them all and do some shopping @ CARDZ TV STAMPS or by CLICKING HERE.





























For my EASTER / SPRING project, I decided to decorate a little flower pot I got from Dollar General for $1.00.

Project #88 of this year

  • Carrots cut @ 1 3/4" from CREATE A CRITTER p. 26
  • Bunny cut @ 3 1/2" from CREATE A CRITTER p. 26
  • Sentiment Mat cut @ 2" for Shadow & 1 3/4" from PHRASE option from CREATE A CRITTER p. 33
  • Some Bunny Loves You sentiment stamp from Mary's EASTER PUNNIES stamp set
  • The sentiment is stuck in the flower pot with a toothpick.
  • The bunny is stuck in the flower pot with a Twist Crayon (I LOVE THESE)
This is just a reminder, that crafting is supposed to be FUN and CREATIVE. You do not have to have all the latest gadgets and gizmos to play. Use what you have. Improvise. Create. If it makes you smile, it will make someone else smile as well.

Thank you again for hopping along with us! Your next stop is SUSAN @ IT'S ME SUSAN P! If you get lost along the way, just go back to the beginning at Mary's CARDZ TV blog. 

Smiles! Have a HOPPING good time on our BLOG HOP!  :) Janis
