April Pals Blog Hop...Families First!

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for April 2016.  We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring projects that are all about our families. This is a great time of year to think about what to make for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or upcoming graduations. And, family vacations are just around the corner… how would you want to remember those special family moments? We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.
You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.
For my project today I created a Mother's Day card using one of my favorite stamp sets from Stampin' Up! called Flower Shop.  It has such pretty flowers that you can stamp and a coordinating Pansy Punch that punches the flowers out so easily.  The front is set up to be three daisies in a vase, using the Note Tag Punch for the vase.  The flower stems are punched from the Bird Builder Punch.  I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the center of each flower for some added sparkle. 
On the inside of this card I used the First Sight Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!  The leaves are stamped in Pear Pizzazz and the sentiment was stamped in Wisteria Wonder and punched out using the 2 Inch Circle Punch and layered over the 2 3/8 Inch Scallop Circle Punch.

Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!
