The colors in this collection just pulled me in!  They are so bright and fun.   I spent a Sunday afternoon just creating with it!  Here are a few of the things I created: This layout was inspired by one of the layouts in the Craft With Heart Subscription!  I cut the cardstock squares 3x3 and the pattern papers are 2 1/2 x 2 1/2.  To fill in some of the 'white pace' I stamped the splatter image from Perfectly Imperfect Patterns (one of my FAVS!) and Capri Ink. I colored some sparkels with Blue Turquiose and Bright Pink Tr

If you are just getting started on the hop, when you get back to me you will know you have completed the circle! If you get lost along the way, you can find the entire list of hoppers  HERE .   The cute little bear image made me think 'slimline' so I stamped him on a piece of White Daisy cardstock with Intense Black ink and then colored him with my Tri-Blend Markers.  I stamped the sentiment along the bottom and added an extra patch of flowers. To add a little interest to the card, I drew dashed lines to give the impression that the little bee has been flying all around the card!  I also added a few bitty sparkles.

On this regular size card I used the window die and tag from our new Buildable Tag Thin cuts.  I wanted it to appear that these cute little critter were looking out at the snowy landscape.  I added a couple of the felt accents and used glue dots to attach a few scatter snowflakes from our Snowflake sequins.    I created a shaker card for my 2nd card using the Slimline Square Window Thin C
