SUStars Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog. This is the first time that I have participated in a blog hop. If you are on the blog hop you should have come from Denise Foor Studio PA. I'm sure you enjoyed her blog. If you just came across my blog and you would like to start at the beginning go to SUStars Home Blog . I have two cards for you today. The first one I got the idea from a fellow demonstrator at last weeks Stampin'Up!'s convention during the make-n-take session. I got her card, but I accidentally washed it. Sorry,  I wanted to give her credit. I redisgned the card, but kept the shaker contents, I thought the contents would be perfect for manly thank you cards. Hope you like.

  This card uses the DSP paper Well Worn. I have fallen in love with this DSP. The saying comes from "Full of Life". I also used the new textured impressions "Houndstooth". The card stock is Cajun Craze.

  Here is the second card. I had to go with a happy birthday card since I just had my birthday on the 21st.

This card uses the stamp sets "Sweet Centers" and "Not So Seriously". I used the Stampin' Pastels to color the dogs. I did eat some of the Nerds candy,I had to make sure it was good enough for Stampin'Up! treat cups. We also have heart treat cups.

Hope you enjoyed these cards and that you will stop by often. Please join my followers, I would love to hear from you. Have a fun time on the rest of the blog hop. Your next stop will be Monica Weavers blog. I'm sure you will enjoy her blog Add a Little Dazzle . If you want to start from the beginning go to SUStars Home Blog .
