Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Good Morning Everyone!!!  If you are joining me from Debbie's blog then you are right on track.  If you randomly came across this hop click HERE to visit Lisa and start at the beginning.  I am super excited to take part in my very FIRST Blog Hop!!!  Who could stop at one project??  My first project is a card for the lovely Lisa our hostess of the hop.  Happy Birthday Lisa!

I've been itching to use my newest Cricut Cartridge 3 Bird's on Parade.  It came in the mail last week as part of a buy 2 get 1 free promotion between Michaels and Provo Craft.  Isn't this little birdie just the cutest.  I also broke open a pack of animal print Recollections Cardstock I picked up on sale a while ago.

I made these next projects for my Daughter's 1st Birthday Party in June.  I decided to go with a Teddy Bear's Picnic theme.

These are the invites and party hats I made with the help of my Gypsy.  The party hats are from the Elmo's Party cartridge and the Teddy Bears are from the Sugar and Spice cartridge.  Faces were stamped using PKS Critter Faces set.  I added some dimension to the little bows with some organza ribbon I got from Walmart.   Keeping with the picnic theme the lyrics to The Teddy Bear's Picnic song are printed out on the inside.  I am in love with these invites and decided to enter them in the Whimsical Wednesday Take Shape Challenge for shaped cards.

And now for the icing on the cake.  Some Blog Candy!  I will be drawing for this fun treat.

The Happy Birthday 2U Paper Pad and Embellishments  from K and Co.

For a chance to win leave me a comment and a way to get a hold of you if you win.  You don't need to be a follower to win, but I would love it if you joined me here at Creative Tree.  I will randomly pick a winner May 26th at 10:00 am MST so there will be plenty of time to enter.

Now continue on to the very talented Emily.  Happy Hopping Everyone, and Happy Victoria Day to all you Canadians out there.

Good afternoon.  While doing some blog exploring I came across this fun Back to Basics challenge at the Whimsical Wednesday Blog.  The challenge was to make a Cricutless project and to include an old school embellishment.  Here is a card I made for a Bridal Shower on the Weekend.

Stamps and paper is CTMH.  The tag punch is from Creative Memories.  The old school embellishment I chose is the fiber strands, also made by (but I think now discontinued ) CTMH.

Tuesday Trigger: Skirting the Issue

Hello here is a photo of this weeks trigger in Moxie Fab World.  We were to use it to inspire a paper carft project of out choice.

This pleated skirt reminded me of some paper i knew I had some where in my stash.  I had to look through a few bins but i finally managed to find where I had filed it away.  It would appear not as great a match as first thought.

Here is the card triggered by this photo.

I folded some paper along the bottom edge of the card trying to mimic the skirt pleats.  The Cake was cut from Smiley Cards digital cartridge. Hope you like it.  I just love to take part in these challenges when I have the time.  They are really fun.  You should play along.
