Ham & Bacon Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Ham and (Kevin) Bacon Blog hop!

If you are looking for today's A Day for Daisies post, click here.

You should have come from the Hambo Hoedown Blog (if not you might just want to head back there so you do not miss a thing).

Here is my card:


Can you guess the movie inspiration???
Yup!  Tremors! (the original -- not any later versions ;) )

For the card I used "Rattler" by Hambo Stamps.

Interesting fact:  I am two degrees from Kevin Bacon!  I (as stage manager and light board op.) worked with Calista Flockhart in Bovver Boys, an off Broadway production in 1990 and she was in movie Telling Lies in America with Kevin in 1997.
Ready for more  HAM & BACON!?!
Please continue on to Lisa Cassidy's Blog -- "My Lil' Bits"!

There will be a shopping spree awarded to one hopper who leaves comments along the way!!
All the details are available at the beginning of the hop on the Hambo Hoedown Blog!

Swing into Spring!

There are definite signs of spring showing themselves in Michigan!

There is something about spring that takes me back to my childhood.   One of the marks of spring was a snow-free playground at school.  The best part of the playground was the swings!!

I love pumping and getting above the bar, and then sometimes just gliding back and forth!

This image, Easter Day from A Day for Daisies, reminds of that free feeling:

This sweet girl is enjoying the breeze and imagining flying over the trees!!

She is colored with Copic markers and cut out.  The background was created with an ink blending tool and a scrap of paper punched with a scalloped circle.

Need more spring!?!?

He is destined to be sent to a special teen guy. ;)

Spring in My Hair

Happy Friday!
It is the second week of the newest release from A Day for Daisies!

The image I have for you is "Spring Flower Hair":

I can just imagine a breezy Easter morning with hair done up like this!
I have added some liquid pearls to the heart shaped leaves in her hair!

My design inspiration came not only from the image, but also from a couple of challenges:
Mojo Monday #338 and Colour Q #234.


(Please note that my computer is the furthest point in my house from my studio... and in the walk across my home, I flipped a couple of elements in my mind.  Regardless, the inspiration came from the sketch AND the color challenge.)

As always, my fellow design team members have created some BEAUTIFUL projects to inspire you:

Arielle
Broni
Danielle
Juliana
Mila

I hope you can join us for the "Pretty Pastels Challenge"!  There is still time!

And if you have not recently looked at the club packages, take a moment to do it.  With all of the spring holidays coming up, A Day for Daisies has wonderful images to make the perfect project!

Thank you for stopping by my blog, today!
