Time to Bloom Blog Hop with Deedee's Digis !


I don't know about you, but I can't wait for SPRING!  We've been having a couple of nice toasty days here in Illinois, but could sure use the beautiful colors of Spring to cheer me up a bit.  Can't wait until my crocus' and daffodils emerge.  I need to see what I have (forgetting from year to year) in the ground now before I buy some more to plant this fall.
In order to hurry Spring along a little, Deedee's Digis has come up with some lovely spring themed digital images.  To celebrate, Deedee's Digis Design Team is hosting a

Time to Bloom Blog Hop

If this is your first stop along the Hop, please be sure to visit Crafting with Deedee's Digis for the directions for participating in this Blog Hop ... A chance to win the GRAND PRIZE, a $15 gift voucher for the Deedee's Digis store - as well as a little gift for you ... hmmm.
For my contribution, I took this brand new image from Deedee's and colored it with Copics.  I left the flower hanging off the edge using the 'out of the box' technique.  I found this designer paper at the LSS last week & had to have it - wasn't sure at the time what I'd use it for ... but as soon as I saw this image, I knew - The butterflies were calling my name.  I used a coordinating piece of designer paper to wrap the plum ribbon around it.  The sentiment is from the same kit as the butterfly, A Time to Bloom.

Before you leave, make sure you leave a comment here in order to be eligible for a chance to win a $5.00 gift voucher from the Deedee's Digi store!  You'll have until Sunday, March 20th at 12-noon, Eastern Time to leave a comment.  I will choose a random winner than and notify Deedee's Digis.  Be sure to check back to see if you've won.

Your next stop along this Time to Bloom Hop is Darsie.  Make sure you check out her fabulous creation!
Thanks for hopping in for a look see!
