Gina K Designs Take Flight Design Team Hop for April



Hey ya'll!! Welcome to our Gina K Design team hop for this month!

The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to a fun 'Take Flight' blog hop. For this hop we will showcase the Petals & Wings StampTV Kit with the central theme being "Take Flight". The DT Members have all used the wide variety of stamps in this set to inspire you to get inky too!! Come play along with the Current Challenges at Stamp TV!!!

If you came from Carolina Buchting's awesome Blog, then you're right where you should be. If not, please go to Stamp TV where you will find a list of all those participating.

Here is my card that I have created with the oh so fun StampTV kit:


This card has alot of paper piecing on it! The balloon image mainly. One of my favorite things to do is paper piecing and that balloon was just asking me to do it on it, lol! I have so many kinfolk graduating this year, from nephews to cousins, that I think I am gonna use this card for that...because really, whether they are graduating from high school or college, they are going to be 'taking flight'!

Now hop on over to Deb Felts wonderful blog for more Gina K. goodness!!!
