Cricut Craftin Friends Blog Hop!

Cricut Craftin Friends Blog Hop 
Celebrating Cricut Craftin Grammys 1 year

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 Beckie, 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 fun and girly Valentine's Day card!

This is a 5"x6.5" card; The scalloped overlay and heart-shaped overlay were both cut from the Cricut A Child's Year cartridge at 6.5" each.

The silhouette and the tag were also cut from the A Child's Year cartridge at 3.5" and 1.2" respectively.

I inked all of the edges, added some white faux-stitching and popped all of the cuts up on foam.

The sentiment comes from K. Andrew's It's Valentine's stamp set.

Products used:
Cricut cartridges: A Child's Year
K. Andrew's It's Valentine's Stamp Set
Paper: K&Company - Kelly Panacci and Recollections cardstock 

Thank you again for checking out my project... Now hop to the next stop: Kate
