CT LoveBug Creations March Holidays Blog Hop

Welcome to the very first blog hop of the Creative Team of LoveBug Creations. Our theme for this two-day hop is March Holidays as March 2013 has both St. Patrick's Day and Easter as that month's biggie events, BUT there are others as well so get prepared to be amazed as to what's happening in March.  This hop will feature the newest LBC Rumple Ribbon Collection for spring with gorgeous splashes of color to inspire crafties no matter how you use ribbon or for what occasion.

Before the creative team parade begins, there's a few things you need to know:
1. All the new colors of Rumple Ribbon will be available for purchase starting February 24 (Sunday) at The LBC Online Store.
2. All these gorgeous colors will be showcased at the various hop settle back and enjoy the parade of creative minds as you hop this weekend.

Just in case you get lost, here's the complete LBC CT line up:


Mama LoveBug is up first - my Rumple Ribbon project actually shows off two new colors - Oh Darling and Gentleman's Jacket - On The Edge Collection; I fashioned a double bow for an Easter project - it's a double-sided stand-up card.  The digi stamp is a Sherri Baldy Besties Easter gal. There was a whole lot of fussy cutting here along with water color penciling and gel-pen/Stickles enhancements.  My Easter gal, Rumplelena, could be given as a card or be used as a centerpiece for an Easter table decoration.

Kimi here and I am so thrilled you are joining us today!! The Team has put together some amazing projects so make sure you stop at all the blogs on the hop!!!
For my project I wanted to make a center step card! I know you've seen these before but I've never made one! Wow...I may be addicted! Super easy and I love how it turned out! Here it is:
"May you find treasure at the end of the Rainbow"
I made the rainbow out of...what else...Rumple Ribbons! I so love how it turned out!!!
Here's the colors I used -
Red: Christmas Present
Orange: Autumn Spice
Yellow: Sunflower
Green: Green Leaves
Blue: Icy Sky
Purple: Sugar Plum
The paper is from a spring DCWV Stack I've had for years!! The little images on the "coins" I found online and the sentiment is computer generated! Hope you like my card and it inspires you to try something new!!!
