I decided that I was going to make an easel card with as many sets as I could during this month's Blog Hop.  Here's my first easel card for the week.  The clouds were made by holding a punched scallop circle on the page and sponging the blue onto the background.  I added a butterfly from the MFP set Glad Glads.

My second card is a one-layer clean and simple card.  Again I used images from other MFP sets.  This time they are the tulips from Springs Things and the grass from Scenic Selections.  

Be sure to check out all the creations by the rest of the designers.  We hope to bring you lots of inspiration this week.

Here's the Design Team:
