Cricut Craftin Friends Blog Hop Day 2

Cricut Craftin Friends Blog Hop Day Two
Celebrating Cricut Craftin Grammys 1 year
Blogaversary








We're so happy you could join us for this hop celebrating the one year blogaversary of Cricut Craftin Grammy. I have asked a few of my Cricut Messageboard friends as well as my Design Team friends (Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog, Lasting Memories and Sweet Sassy Diva )to join her in this two day Blog Hop. The participants are allowed to share anything creative they wish to share using a Cricut (or other die cut machine if they do not have a Cricut.)

Overall Blog Candy

I hope you will hop along with us and leave comments along the way. For the overall blog candy you need to leave a comment on each blog each day.

If you leave a comment on all the blogs both days your name will be entered into the Random drawing twice. The random winner will receive a $25 gift card from their choice of Michaels or Joanns.

This is a TWO-DAY hop, so be sure to check out both days so you don't miss any creativeness. Because there is a large number of participants I will give you until January 30th to post your comments for the two days of the blog hop.  Thanks for joining us!

Let's get hopping!! If you've hopped over from Suzanne, then you are in the right place!! If you've just popped in to visit my blog or are reading this via email and you'd like to join our FUN, then please CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Suzanne's Blog

For the hop today, I've created a little card for Valentines Day.
The card's base is made with Kraft paper and the mat is a cocoa brown.  I used the Tim Holtz distresser on the edges.  It is one of my favorite little gadgets to use.  Cricut cartridges GEORGE AND BASIC SHAPES and LACEY LABELS were used to cut the shapes.  The little leaves were cut with a MS punch.  I added aqua pearl gems for the center of the flower.  The sentiment is a stamp from the K Andrew Designs, Its Valentines Stamp set. 
BLOG CANDY
I will be giving away a large assortment of different kinds of lace and trims for your many crafting projects.  To be eligible please leave a comment and be a follower.  I will announce the winner next week. 


Thank you again for checking out my project... Now hop to the next stop: Melanie
Remember to visit all the stops for MAXIMUM ideas and LOTS OF FUN!!
