Pals March 2012 Blog Hop

You Did It!

Spring has sprung and it’s time for Pals Blog Hop!  Today the Stampin’ Pretty Pals are sharing some fabulous Spring themed cards and projects that we think you’ll enjoy!  You’ve probably hopped over from the wonderfully talented Mikki Sarkisyan at Mikki’s Creative Corner, I’m stop number 16 on the Pals Hop and I’m glad you hopped in!  I’ll help you “hop along” from blog to blog where you’ll find great ideas for spring themed paper projects from the Stampin’ Pretty Pals! should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you’ll be back on track.

On Sunday afternoon, as the plane I was on prepared to land all I could think about was my next card project.  I was away for three whole weeks and oh how I missed my craft room.   Being away for such a long time really does tend to freeze the little creative cells I have.  But that is what is so wonderful about Stampin’ Up!, I don’t have to be supremely talented to create beautiful cards.  Blog Hops are a perfect source of inspiration to your creative side… for you and for me.  =)

I will share my South Korean trip pictures with the MaggieMadeCards Blog subscribers via private post on March 14th.  If you’d like to see my adventures, simply subscribe to this blog.

About Maggie

I'm a Graphic Art Designer and Greeting Card Maker. It's a form of therapy and I love what I do, so I never have to work a day in my life. It's my win-win situation after a 25-year Air Force career as a hospital administrator.


  1. Beautiful colors and design.

  2. How clever to score the background – it makes a great match with the DSP, Maggie. Love the colors and the detail in the art piece. Well done!

  3. This is so beautiful. Great colors and design.

  4. Very pretty! The scored background adds such a nice touch … the butterflies are so soft and add so much to this sweet card. TFS!

  5. I love this stamp set and you have displayed it so perfectly! Very pretty!

  6. Love your card, Maggie! I really like the contrast of the textured card base against the DSP you used for your background paper. Love your sweet pearl-embellished flowers, too! Very nice!
