Mother's Day Blog Hop

Saturday, April 23, 2011

Welcome to the Mother's Day blog hop. We are making some amazing projects that will hopefully inspire you to make some beautiful crafts for whomever you cherish on Mother's Day. If you came here from Kim at Ricketts Cricuts then you are in the right place. If just happened to be visiting me today be sure to start back at Jamie's blog - Crafty Girl 21, so you don't miss any of the wonderful projects!   I made this card for my own fabulous mom.

I decided to try a fold I had never done before.  It think it turned out really spectacular (although I'm not sure you can tell from the picture)! If you want to try one of your own, I found the directions at Stamp with Stacy.
I used designer paper from The Paper Studio (the gems are from them too!) and the flowers are from Oriental Trading.  The sparkle on the hummingbird and the "mom" is Tulip fabric paint. I cut the scallop on the flap with my Fiskars Scallop border punch.The sentiment on the inside is a stamp from Close to My Heart.
The Cricut Cuts:
* Hummingbird - Lyrical Letters
* Mom - Beyond Birthdays
Here is the whole line up in case you get lost along the way:
* Jamie - Crafty Girl 21
* Rhonda - Scrap Happens
* Kim - Ricketts Cricuts
* Tiffany - Sparkled Memories (This is Me!)
* Lisa - Lisa's Creative Niche
* Meighen - Scrappin 3rdees Chick
* Jennifer - Crafty Card Gallery
Next up is Lisa at Lisa's Creative Niche (she's got something spectacular for you), but before you go what's a blog hop with out some blog candy?  I have some wonderful mom inspired items to giveaway. My mom loves purple, buttons, and flowers, so you'll find a bit of those things included and I couldn't forget to include some sparkle!
All you need to do it leave a comment on this post.  You don't have to become a follower, but of course I would love it if you did :)  I'll choose a winner on Monday April 25th using *~*Thanks for stopping by*~*
