Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop

Well, it's the last Tuesday of the month so today is the beginning of the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team's monthly Blog Hop. This month the participating Design Team members are:

Olga (me)
Carla
Tesa
Selma
Clare
Linda
One of our blogs will be randomly chosen and from all those that commented on that blog, the winner will be again, randomly chosen. Blog Hop will remain open for comments on everyone's blog through midnight Friday night April 27th. The winner will be posted here by noon on Sat April 28th. Winner receives a $25 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations.
For my card I did the 5 x 7, used Martha Stewart's Spiral Arches punch and placed it down the center, and added lace to the center of that  Then I stamped HCPC3388 Spring Cardinals and HCPC3389 Sentiments for Mom. I chose not to color anything this go round and love the look, hope you do too! Thanks for looking and don't forget to check out the rest of the teams blogs!
