Cricut Craftin Friends Blog Hop





This hop is still open for you to link-up and also for prizes. It is for a great cause, so please hop over and look HERE .







Welcome to the Cricut Craftin Friends Blog Hop 
Celebrating Cricut Craftin Grammys 1 year
Blogaversary!





I'm so happy you could join us for this hop! Suzanne asked a few of her Cricut Messageboard friends and co-design team friends (Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog, Lasting Memories and Sweet Sassy Diva )to join her in this 2-day hop.  She asked us to share anything creative as long as we used a Cricut (or other die cut machine if you do not have a Cricut.)

GRAND PRIZE!!

Your choice of a $25 gift card from either Michael's or Joanns.


Hop Rules
Must Be Followed to Win Grand Prize

1. Leave a comment on ALL hop stops for BOTH days of hop.


This is a 2-DAY hop, be sure to check out both days so you don't miss any creativeness. Because there are a large number of participants,  you will have until January 30th to post your comments for the two days of the blog hop. 

Now let's get to it...




I used Doodlecharms for 2 different heart cuts, both cut at 2". I welded them together with my Cricut Design Studio software. I embossed with a Sizzix folder.The patterned paper is from a two Martha Stewart Valentine's Day packs. The solid pink stock is from Walmart.




Though this card is simple, I thought it was cute. I again used my CDS. I used Mini Monograms and welded together 2 scalloped square bases. I used my Nestabilities die and ran it through my Big Shot to get the scalloped circles. The hearts are bling from Walmart.


I am so honored that Suzanne asked me to be part of her celebration. I am on the DT of Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog with her. She is an outstanding crafter, teammate and friend.

Now hop on....don't forget the rules ;0)
