SPREAD JOY, NOT GERMS HOP


Welcome to the Spread Joy, Not Germs blog hop! You should be arriving from Joni Wilson's blog. If you get lost along the way, the entire blog list can be found on Catherine Pooler's Blog.

I've had a lot of spare time due to the Covid19 and got to thinking about all of those essential employees putting their lives at risk for us! I'm doing my part...staying inside. It's actually been nice being stuck inside the house. My house is clean, the closets are organized, the laundry is done, and I've done a lot of scrapping!


Be sure to hop along each blog and comment for your chance on winning lots of prizes from some fabulous companies!! The prizes will be randomly drawn from all the blogs and comments. Deadline to enter is April 24 for prizes. Winners will be announced on Monday, April 27 on Catherine and Alexandra's blogs. 

Some prizes that are up for grabs include:

Trinity Stamps- $25 Gift Certificate
Catherine Poolers- $20 Gift Certificate on each of the Brand Ambassadors' blogs*
Heffy Doodler- $35 voucher for the store
Paper Sweeties- $50 Gift Certificate
Beacon-Product gift bag
CAS-ual Fridays- Win the new release- over $80 in value
Ink on 3- $35 Gift Certificate

These are just a few of the prizes... there are 31 sponsors!!! 



I used Trinity Stamp's "A Crafter's Heart" stamp set to create my second card. I had fun with this one... I used Ink on 3's Artist Grade Fusion Inks to color the card. The colors are soooo pretty! Once the ink was completely dry, I used markers to color in some of the shapes.


For the Dust for you card, I used Catherine Pooler's inks (Lime Rickey andSomething Borrowed). I used a blending buddy to blend the colors onto the white cardstock. Then I stamped the bunny from Trinity Stamp's Dust Bunny Stamp Set on a scrap piece of paper, colored him using markers and cut him out to use for the card. After I stamped the "Dust for you" I felt the card still needed something else so I used the butterfly and grass from the Rhino Bird Stamp Set that is on sale and it's your last chance to grab it before it's gone! Lastly, I used the Rainbow Die Set to add a rainbow!



For my last card, I used Trinity Stamps' Love You Bunches Stamp Set and the Thank You Sentimini Stamp Set. I love this floral stamp set, it's been used quite a bit these past few months. I used my Altenew markers to color in the flowers. These are my favorite markers ever. I just love them. 


Thanks so much for taking time out of your day to stop by today! I really appreciate it. Your next stop is Annie Collin's blog. Enjoy!

Oh your cards are absolutely wonderful! I love the crafters heart from Trinity Stamps & the way you used only part of it. And that Dust For You card made me giggle. I get giant dust bunnies on the floor as I have a very long haired English Cream Golden Retriever who seems to shed all year long. His tail is so long it rests on the floor when he stands. I keep hoping he'll sweep them up & take them outside, but, alas, nope. lol
Your colouring on all of your cards is lovely.
