If you are thinking a “Fiskawhat?”, you should know that Fiskateers (www.fiskateers.com) is an online community of craftiness (paper crafts, sewing, gardening, etc.) all based around our love and appreciation of Fiskars (think orange-handled scissors to start). There is a blog, gallery, and message board led by four lovely Lead Fiskateers who along with the other Fiskateers are fabulous at getting creativity flowing via chats, challenges, on-line crops, and interviews with other crafty celebrities. If you would like to join in the inspiration of Fiskateers, or would like to learn more, you can email Tami (one of the Lead Fiskateers) at firstname.lastname@example.org. Then, join in the fun at the beginning, www.kellystarsallthingscrafty.blogspot.com for a complete list of blog hop stops.
We’ll be hopping all weekend , March 24th and 25th to welcome spring!
The blog hop officially ends on Sunday March 25th at 11pm CST.
Some Fiskateers are offering sur-prizes…check their directions carefully to participate.
You ever find you need a card in a hurry? I do every once in awhile. I also noticed on many sites the thing is "fast and simple" which is fine with me sometimes. So that is what I thought I'd do, fast and simple yet nice....and with Fiskars products, it is oh so easy. So when I think of spring I think of birth. No matter if it is a plant poking through the ground or the birth of the animals. So for my project I did a fast and simple birthday card. (Another think I love about the background stamp is that if I wanted I could have colored in the bigger fonts to match the cupcake paper. It would have added a splash of color but I did say simple & fast so....)

Me, I also think of all the yummy stuff to eat and drink that we don't do so much during the winter but more so during the warmer months of spring/summer. Like sun tea with fresh mint sprigs picked from my own plants. Sitting at the picnic table or on the patio sipping it and enjoying the day. So I picked this stamp set for you.
Thanks for stopping by & don't forget to stop back tomorrow for another chance to win. The winner will be announced on Monday.
