STV Center Stage Spotlight's Team Blog Hop!!

is having their first BLOG HOP for 2011. It's a color challenge - we have two color combos to chose from (or do both LOL)

Check out Gina's video here !! hope you can enter - the winner receives a FREE GKD Stamp Set!!
I so enjoyed participating in this hop - have been having computer problems (as most of you know) and havent been participating in many challenges this past holiday season - feels good to be "getting back in the saddle again" LOL
here are my two cards:
this was done with the GKD Botanicals set and Hope is Faith set...I dont know what I was thinking and used Asparagus on this one too!
This was done with the GKD's Spring Florals set and You Are Not Alone set ...most of the time you cant glitter to show and now this one shows but not very well

Now the Hop starts over at STV and if you came from Kay Simmons wonderful blog then you're on the right track and the next hop is over to see what gorgeousness is waiting at Lori's Blog . You won't be disappointed!!!
Hope you've been inspired and best of luck in entering the STV Color Challenge!
Hugs,
