DeNami August Blog Hop



It's time for another DeNami Blog Hop! Can you believe that we are in the middle of August already? I am just shocked at how fast time goes by anymore! My little one starts school this week and I am so sad that we are at the end of summer!  It has definitely been the busiest and most fun one yet! 

OK, so enough babbling and on to the cards!  If you are following the hop, you came over from Tenia's blog, the sweetest gal ever!  If you would like to start back at the beginning, click HERE to take you back to the DeNami blog and the full list of participants! 

So this month's hop?  Mini Cards!  Such a fun theme!  I don't make these very often but when I do I love to make them in little sets.  Here are a few pictures...

This is a little band-aid box I got in bulk years ago.  I have had tons of these sitting around and recently made a couple little gifts out of them and realized how much fun they are!  Check out what is inside...

This adorable "Dropping you a Note" sentiment is so fun and I thought it was the perfect size for the front of the tin.  You know I had to make some tiny little matching note cards....

Each little card is decorated with come patterned paper, a paper flower and some bling!  I used an adorable little stamp from DeNami's Thoughtful Greetings Petit Four.

And here they are as a set!  I matted each with a different color of card stock just to mix it up a little! 

 Now to follow along on the hop, your next stop is Rochelle's blog! Stop back over to the DeNami blog to see about the prizes!

Thank you so much for coming by today!
