Sparkle N Sprinkle's April Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to our April Blog Hop. This month's theme is 'Anything But A Card'! And I have two items to share with you.

If you found your way here by way of Jackie Smith, awesome. If not, please click HERE to get started at the beginning of the hop.  And thank you so much for joining us!

Sparkle N Sprinkle's April specials can be found HERE.

Every month Sparkle N Sprinkle has a Creative Challenge. Please join us for all the fun. And there are prizes to be won!

Be sure to leave a comment on each and every person's blog. That way you're eligable for some very nice prizes.


This little girl is just too adorable not to pair up with a hand-made seed packet. Please feel free to snag the template, below. For complete instructions to make, please click HERE.
 

For my second project, I decided to do something I haven't done for such a long time - ceramic tile coasters. This is so easy, and would be a great project for the kids to make for Mother's Day or Father's day, or whatever occassion comes along.
