Hopefully Hopping Along....

I hope you've been having fun hopping along to see all the latest creations from my pals on the My Favorite Things Design Team. If you didn't come here via Cindy's blog and you've just stumbled into this hop, I hope that you'll head on over to Kim's blog so that you don't miss any eye candy along the way!

Tonight there are three super cute stamp sets being previewed! I think they're all great, but in particular, I just love this Annie LaPoint image. They're just so different from anything else in my "collection" and they are truly a BLAST to color in! So many possibilities!

I really do wish that I loved gardening... but somehow that gene skipped me. I don't have a knack for it. Thank goodness that flowers come in stamps instead!

I've been reading and loving Barbara Kingsolver's "Animal Vegetable Mineral" and loving how she documents all of the fruits of her labor in a gardening journal. So, I was inspired to stamp up a little gardening journal for a friend. It was a great excuse to put my Bind It All to use!

I actually snipped in between pieces of the sentiment to make mine a little more bendy... I created an arch to mimic the top of the plants within the wheelbarrow. I didn't actually cut them apart, just made them more bendy! LOL!

The next stop on the blog hop is Kirsten in fact, I'm headed there myself to see what cuteness she's come up with! Don't forget to hop all the way along through to the end where there will be some blog candy!
