Mom's Day Blog Hop

I'm thrilled to be a part of Nicolette's Mom's Day Blog Hop! if you arrived here from Erin's blog, then your in the right place, if you want to start from the beginning, then hop back over to Nicolette's blog.

Mother's Day is a special day for many women, but for me it's extra special because my mom was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2008. I feel very lucky to still have her so this card is dedicated to her.

For this card I used A Child's First Year cartridge, I also embossed the background and added some cherry blossom ribbon and finished off the card with a few flat back pearls & a flower rhinestone.

I appreciate you taking time to visit my little corner of the blogging world! Your next stop on the hop is Karel, and I hope you love what she created! There are so many talented ladies on this hop, so I hope you take a moment to visit them all!

Now for the fun part, BLOG CANDY!!! I will be giving away ribbon from my Etsy store to the winner of this blog hop. Once a winner is chosen, that person will be able to pick any 5 yards of ribbon from my store. All you have to do to win is be a follower of my blog and leave a comment. I will be picking a winner using on Tuesday 5/3.  I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and until next time, Continue To Create a Crafty Life ~

Royal Tea Bridal Shower Blog Hop

Well it's finally here.... Are you as excited as I am over the Royal Wedding this Friday??? I can remember as a child watching Prince Charles & Princess Diana get married and all the excitement in the air over that very special occasion. Now it's Prince Williams turn to marry his Princess Kate ♥

I'm very excited to be a part of Ellen from Cardmonkey's Royal Tea Bridal Shower Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Jessica's blog, then you're in the right place. If you want to start at the beginning, then you'll need to hop back over to Ellen's blog.

When I think of weddings, I think of all things shinny & beautiful, so that's what inspired my card...

I used the Wedding Solutions cart along with glitter cardstock for the dress, and I also embossed the top white layer and finished it off with rhinestones. The sentiment is from Cloud Nine's Wedding collection and I added Grey satin ribbon as a final touch. I hope this card get's you excited about the Royal Wedding that will take place in just a couple of days.
