Gingersnapper Spirit Blog Hop

We're combining our third annual Gingersnap Creations ginger/copper/rust challenge with a spirited blog hop.
Each year,Gingersnap Creations goes back to our roots otherwise known as our very first challenge. You have until April 24 to play along by linking your color creation to GC96.  (Clicking on GC96 also takes you to the other Gingers' work for this challenge.)
And we're showing off our Gingersnapper Spirit with a Color Blog Hop from our Yahoo Group members. To hop along, you'll find the list of participants at Gingersnap Creations.
Since I'm both a Ginger Design Team member and a Ginger Yahoo Group member, there was no stopping my gingersnap spirit for this blog hop.

My little birdie is going to soar out of its cage and fly off to everyone's blog today.
