Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop

Good morning,
Well, it's the last Tuesday of the month so today is the beginning of the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team's monthly Blog Hop. This month the designers participating in our April hop are:

Clare 
and ME !

I'm sharing with you one of the Easter cards I did ..love this combination of sets so have several ready for next year!
I cant figure out how to enlarge this pic with the new blogger....heck! I can hardly figure out this new blogger...gonna take this old dog a few days to learn this! where do I enter the tags for the post ???? never mind, figured that one out
This was done with:
HCPC 3364 Stained Glass Background PreCut Set - Stamped with Memento Black and sponged the colors
HCPC 3366 Wrought Iron Cross PreCut Set

Once completed - the entire front piece is clear embossed to give it the glass effect.

Hope you enjoy the hop! We love creating these projects for you each month!

One of our blogs will be randomly chosen and from all those that commented on that blog, the winner will be ... again, randomly chosen.
Blog Hop will remain open for comments on everyone's blog through midnight Friday night April 27th. The winner will be posted here (and on the member's blogs who are able to post) by noon on Saturday April 28th.

The winner will receive a $25.00 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations!

have a beautiful day,
