Shaping Up Blog Hop


So happy to have you here today!  A few of my crafty friends from the PC Gallery Idol and I are joining together for a little shaped cards blog hop!  And there are prizes....lots of prizes....just sayin'!  ;)  So grab a drink and a snack and get comfy!  If you are following along in the hop, you should have come here from Dana's blog.  Here is my little shaped card....

IMG_7399_edited-1

I made this cloud card using my Cricut.  I added in a sun and some rays from PTI's Sunshine set along with a little Linen IP in the background.  The little banners are from Clear and Simple's Flag Favors Dies.  Of course, that gorgeous twine is from the Twinery.

I cut the banners in half and then added some white gel pen detail.  I wrapped them around the twine and attached them with a glue dot.  Easy peasy!

Now on to the giveaway!  I will chose 2 random comments here on my blog.  The first will receive a copy of PC Card Creations Volume 10...


and the next prize is this Hero Arts stamp set...


All you have to do is leave a comment for a chance at one of these 2 prizes!   Commenting ends Sunday July 29th 11:59PM EST and I announce the winners on Monday, July 30th!

I'd like to give a big shout out to Paper Crafts magazine for all they do and for the fun prizes during Gallery Idol! I feel honored that my card was chosen for the Top 20!

So your next stop on the hop is Tessa's blog. I can't wait to hop along too, and see what everyone else has cooked up for today!  For a full list of participants, click HERE.  

I'm so glad you came by today! Thank you!  Have a great day!
