Thank You Blog Hop!

Tonight several GinaK Designs designers are joining together to host a special thank you blog hop to our recently retired StampTV Challenge Hostess Team. The four designers we're honoring tonight have provided weekly challenges for the STV members for the entire months of December, January, and February and we are so thankful for their inspiration and hard work!
To see all the challenges the Retired Hostess team has shared during their term, visit the StampTV Inspiration Category on the StampTV Idea Center . Each hostess has her own category with all the card samples they made along with the links to the Challenge Discussions as well as the gallery samples over on StampTV.  Be sure to check out the PDF attached to each discussion as well, as you can save or print out all the challenges to keep for a reference tool for your stamping inspiration!

We asked each participating designer in our thank you hop tonight to choose one challenge shared during the past 3 months and make a card to share on their blogs tonight as well as to send that card to the hostess.  I've linked each challenge that I used as inspiration for my card and decided to use the Spring Florals stamp set on each of them too.

My first card is for Shannon Bracken's Monochromatic Color Challenge:

 

Stamp Details
Stamps: Spring Florals, Inside and Out

My next card is from Carolina Buchting's Inchie Challenge:
