SpiegelMom Scraps - May Blog Hop!!

I am so so super excited to announce I've joined the SpiegelMom Scraps Design Team! I've known Jody from SMS for a while now and she is such an amazing person with a fabulous small business that I've loved supporting. I am so honored to be chosen as one of her DT members and have to pinch myself that I get to work alongside such other talented, lovely ladies using such fantastic products!

Now, a little about me - I am a mom of 3 beautiful girls - ages 29, 10 and 5! I love creating and whether it's cardmaking, scrapbooking or home decor (and a little crochet) I'm always busy. I love involving my girls and seeing how they use crafty supplies in new and creative ways. I live in Calgary, Alberta Canada, but I grew up on the East Coast of Canada in Nova Scotia - so I'll always be a Maritime Girl at heart ;) If you've followed my blog you probably know I LOVE using SMS Sequins! To me, they are like sprinkles on the icing on a cake - fun, pretty and delicious! I'll be sharing a Creative Card feature at the SpiegelMom Scraps blog this year, so be sure to follow along so you don't miss any of the awesome creations I've got in mind!

It's time for our May 1st blog hop, and if you've arrived from Marie's blog you are in the right place! If you want to start from the beginning, then head over to the SpiegelMom Scraps blog. There is a $20 Gift Certificate available to be won for one random commenter, so be sure to leave a comment on all the blogs!

For my project today I've created a Twist and Pop card. I've seen so many wonderful designs and wanted to try one myself using some of the awesome new supplies I just ordered from the SpiegelMom Scraps store! I wanted to go for a spring colour theme so I chose the pretty Pandora's Ombre, What's Up Buttercup and You Are My Sunshine sequin mixes along with the Shooting Cork Stars, Cork Confetti Butterflies and Raspberry Burlap String on my card.

I chose a cute Gorjuss Girl in a tea cup stamp and used watercolour paper along with my Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers to colour in the images. I added a little tag to my removable tea bag, which I decorated with pretty star cork and sequins and attached to a belly band.

A while ago I got a Heartfelt Creations Christmas paper pad that had a lot of purple and blue papers in it and I thought it would be great to incorporate these colours into my spring card! I definitely don't see Christmas when I look at this card, so it was a neat way to get more use out of this pretty paper pad.

I love the 'twist and pop' motion of this card! I'm sure whoever gets this card is going to be intrigued!

 I absolutely love the colours in these sequin mixes and the sweet little flowers included! I love using sequins inside my card too to decorate!

After taking off the tea and band this card can be propped up and looks just as lovely!
