World Card Making Day Blog Hop

Today is my day to be part of Gill's World Cardmaking Hop. I am so excited to be a part of this. There are so many famous designers on this 5 day hop. If you are one of my fabulous followers checking in today, you surely want to start at Gill's blog so you don't miss out on all of the amazing project ideas and fabulous give-aways:-)

I decided to go ahead and share both cards I made. I couldn't decide which one to post so I'm posting both. I used the Give A Hoot Cricut Cartridge for my first card. I had found the patterned paper somewhere and picked it up thinking I'd use it for a project for my daughter. She loves peace signs! I punched the corners with my new Crop A Dile Corner Chomper. The sentiment comes from Pink By Design's Feelin' Groovy set.

My second card didn't end up as I envisioned (what project ever does?) I was going to put a Cricut Cut tractor on the front with a computer generated sentiment "Happy Harvest", but the tractor just didn't look right to me, so this is what I ended up with. The patterned card stock is from October Afternoon's Campfire stack. Love this stack! The cornstalks are from My Community Cricut Cart. I embossed the little ears of corn with the Tiny Mosaic Cuttlebug folder. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes set.

Now for a little bit of blog hop candy. I'll choose a random commenter after the hop is over for this bit of crafty goodness. Just make sure you are a follower and leave your email or a way to contact you. I'm thinking of adding some yummy Stickles to this group of candy, too - Winner will be able to pick a color!

Don't forget to start back at Gill's blog tomorrow for day 3 of this 5 day hop! Now on to the ├╝ber fabulous Jenn at Cardstock and Coffee. She has some rockin' projects to share with you!

  18. Fabulous cards Tammy! My daughters are both huge fans of the peace sign so I know what you mean by that - we found a paper pack by Colorbox that is just filled with them and it made them so happy! I love your second card especially - the neutral patterns and the corn stalks just emanate autumn to me. I don't know why, but this one really makes me feel happy :) And I love the embossing you did on the corn! Thanks for the chance to win those yummy goodies. I am already a follower of your sweet blog by email.
