DeNami Design's March Blog Hop: FUZZY FRIENDS!


YAY!  Another blog hop day is here!

You should have arrived here from the incomparable Wendy's blog.  I know I've gushed about her many times before on my blog, but seriously, if it wasn't for her and her gorgeous creations, I might never be the DeNami super fan that I am.  She is truly remarkable!   

If you need to start this hop from the beginning, head back to DeNami Design's blog.  Make sure to leave comments along the way for your chance to win a gift certificate!

Now, I have a confession.  I was not going to participate in this month's blog hop.  I have been so busy recently, and the last two months, I was so stressed about getting the blog hop projects and posts done on time, I figured I needed a month off.  However, with my recent purchase of some of DeNami's newest critters I simply could NOT stay away!  (In case you didn't see my very first haul video, check out my post HERE.)  However, I found myself somewhat overwhelmed about what to make.  I have several "go to" layouts that I tend to use over and over again.  They are classic layouts great for any occasion, but I felt the need to stretch myself a bit this month.  That being said, my first attempt at a card was a disaster.  It just didn't work.  In my head, there were some great concepts, but it just didn't pan out in reality.  So, I decided to simplify.  I made my mind up to create some simple mini cards.  I don't know about you, but I am so sick of winter, so I needed something bright, cheerful, and Spring-y.  So, here's what I made:



I know the flowers don't exactly match the theme, but they made me think of Flower, the skunk, from Bambi, so that's where this ties in (in my head at least).  I used glitter papers by DCWV, and I added a little heart to the skunks using Glam Pink Stickles.  Here are some more pictures:







The next stop on the hop is the AMAAAAAAAAAAAZING Barbara's blog.  She's a blogging ROCK STAR.  I'm a HUGE fan!

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you again next month!

Happy Stamping!
Amy

Amy you say the sweetest things about me. Makes my day girl!! I loved your video and all of your new critters so I was excited to see what you would choose to work with. I don't own that sweet little skunk, I may have to add him to my list now! Love the Flowers- totally reminds me of the skunk from Bambi. Super cute!!

Flower is my favorite Bambi character! I love how a skunk is named after something that smells good. :) I love that same contradiction in your cards. An adorable little skunk on a flower card. Really cute. Thanks.
