If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Just Buggin'. You should have arrived here from 

Our Challenge:
Spring into Spring - make any project using spring colors, flowers, etc. with your Cricut!  Don't forget to mention which cartridge you used for your project! 

When you are finished with your project, you must leave a comment on the Just Buggin' Blog and post your project on Mr. Linky in order to be eligible for a prize.

As an added bonus, as you hop on through the blog hop, please leave a comment for each designer. 
Some of the Design Team Blogs will have prizes!

Monday March 1st – Announcement of blogs with prizes on Just Buggin!

Here is a cute Spring Tag set that I made using
the Walk in My Garden cartridge:
Products:
Cardstock base:  AC
Pattern Cardstock:  My Mind's Eye Summer Song
Cricut Cartridge:  Walk in My Garden
Ribbon:  Michael's
Flowers:  Prima
Chalk Ink:  VersaMagic
Brads:  Spare Parts by The Paper Studio
Gems:  Spare Parts by The Paper Studio
Adhesive:  3D Squares

I had so much fun with this project!  I started with a cardstock base using the Tag feature and then covered it with my favorite patterned cardstock from My Mind's Eye!  I just love their paper!
I used the shift feature on the tag to add the 3-D butterfly, added chalk ink around tag and butterfly and added some bling!  I color coordinated the flowers with the paper and added them to the bottom edge, so that it would look like the butterfly was landing on the flower! 
 These tags would make a great Spring gift set!  Hope you enjoy!

Ok, now that you have seen my project, you have two ways to possibly earn a prize on my blog:  
1).  Leave a comment for me letting me know what your favorite Spring flower is and why!
(Mine is a Pansy--I love those bright little faces!  They make me so HAPPY!!)
2). Become a follower of my blog!

Time to get busy on your Spring project! 
Now, don't forget to leave at Comment at Just Buggin' and post your project to Mr. Linky!

  3. Your tags are just adorable. I love how they're all coordinated. No flower says spring to me more than tulips but I love the scent of hyacinths and the beautiful yellow of forsythia.

  10. My favorite flower is really more a summer one - and sometimes considered a weed! It is Queen Anne's Lace - so delicate and pretty. My daughter's is the pansy though and our flower beds will be filled with them shortly! Her grandparents give her a flat of them for her birthday each year and then help her plant them.

  15. I'm not sure if my first post went through. I like daisies, if it's spelled wrong, then it's someone eles's fault. I cheated and spelled it the same as on another post. Can't spell any more.

  16. First, my favorite spring flower is the Pasque Flower. The lavender is my favorite. The blooms precede most of the foliage in spring. The leaves are a grayish green but they look lacey. Pretty.
    Your Tags Are Amazing.

  41. I LOVE those tags! I haven't played too much with the shift features on my carts but I'll definitely be looking now! I'm with you- I'm a big fan of pansies. There was a wedding gown I would have loved to have gotten if I could have afforded it- it had a riot of pansies on the back of the waist- gorgeous!
