Welcome to the March From the Heart Stamps blog hop. Today we want everyone to THINK SPRING!! And think it OUT LOUD so maybe it will stick! With all of the cold we’ve been having, don’t we all want to think of warmer times to come (hopefully soon)?!

We the designers are pulling out some of the FTHS images that make us “think spring” and hope to inspire you, if not warm you, along the way…

We have some great projects for you on today’s hop; and for your part, you must leave some “love” at each stop along the way -Prizes are on the line!… One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win the image that the designer used [MEANING the winner here gets Ladybug Parade]. Additionally, one commenter on the From the Heart Stamps blog will be selected to win a $5 gift voucher to the store!

If you have arrived from LAURA’s Blog, you are in the right place; if not why don’t you start on the From the Heart Stamps blog so you don’t miss anything.

My card uses the image Ladybug Parade …Is it absolutely precious or what?! I tried to pull out my brightest spring colors but until I pulled in the ladybug red, I just wasn’t satisfied. I think it is still springy though. What do you think??
