Grateful Bunch


Welcome everyone to the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop!  With this being Easter weekend for us here, we thought we’d celebrate with “Hello Spring”.


As always there’s a story to go along with this!  This actually started a couple weeks ago with the idea for doing it for a color challenge for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday challenge.  So I made the cup and the flowers and then these leaves and then realized…OOOPS…wrong color for the leaves.  Next I realized the color I would have to use for the circle was not REALLY the color I wanted to use and well…it sort of just sat, you guessed it…ON THE TOP OF MY DESK.  So I was trying to figure out what to do for our ‘hello spring’ thing and this was sitting on top of my desk…well, at least parts of it so I went with it.  I do think it looks nice and ‘springy’!

Here’s the details…
