Tell your friends about the hop on your Facebook, Twitter, and link it here for an extra chance.

Ok for my last project it is another one of six invitations that I made for my daughters third birthday party we are having next weekend. I have become addicted to embossing powder. I used cranberry embossing powder on the ice cream and the words to help make it pop. I made this invite using the fanfare workshop from Close To My Heart. I hope you have enjoyed the hop this weekend!!! Thanks for all your comments and becoming a follower. If I get to 100 followers during this blog hop I will be giving away a stamp set from Close To My Heart!

You next stop is the Oh so talented Kristy! Happy Blogging!!!

I saved the best for last. I have done cards the last three days so I did a layout for today:
This was a picture of my daughter last year right before she turned two. My brother snapped it and everyone kept asking me if I curled her hair. No her hair is natural curly. I had been wanting to put this in her scrapbook for some time and this blog hop inspired me to get it done. I used a little bit of everything on this layout. I used the Fanfare paper from Close To My Heart for the background and circles, I used paper I picked up at Hobby Lobby for the letters, the stars on the circles came from Michaels, and the stars on the side came from Hobby Lobby. I used my Cricut to cut out the letters.  I will be giving away a set of the July SOTM for anyone who leaves a comment all four days and becomes a follower. If I reach a hundred followers I will throw in an extra stamp set from another stamp of the month.
Your next stop is Kristy! Please make sure that you leave a comment and become a follower of my blog to be included in the drawing that Lisa is having. Happy Blogging!!!

Ok for day 2 I have again made another card because that's what I love!
All materials are from Close To My Heart. I used the Fanfare paper packet and the July SOTM. On the flag I used embossing powder. This was my first time using it so it was a learning experience for me. I enjoyed it and will be doing it again. The pinwheel idea came from a fellow card maker from Operation Write Home. I truely enjoyed making this card and I did twelve of them for my June swap. I will be giving away a set of the July SOTM for anyone who leaves a comment all four days and becomes a follower. If I reach a hundred followers I will throw in an extra stamp set from another stamp of the month.
