WOO HOO!!! Another blog hop! I love these blog hops... filled with prizes, fun projects to see and a TON to learn. This one is NO exception! By now you should be arriving from Holly's AWESOME creation. If you are just joining us, you will want to start our hop from the beginning (HERE) so you don't miss any of the blog hop goodness. The blog candy up for grabs on this blog is TWO of the Skull Flower suckers like the one's pictured in Nicole's arrangement. Just leave a comment on this post between now and the 7th for your chance to win. I will pick the winner the evening of the 7th when the hop is over and post it on my blog. Good luck everyone.
So my holiday themed birthday project is... you guessed it... Valentines. And I made this for our birthday girl/co-blog organizer Nicole, The Canadian Nickel. Happy Birthday Nicole!!! And thank you to my friend Barb for inspiring this blog hop project. I used lots of goodies from my bag of tricks: Love Struck Cricut cartridge for the lips and heart charm, Mo Manning's Cupid In Love digi, Dollz Bonez Skull Flower digi, Spellbinders large circle and scalloped circle sets, Stickles, Copic Markers (of course!) and lots and lots of Red Hots!!! I also used the yellow metallic Sakura Gel pen to highlight the arrow tip and the bow, but for some reason the lighting for the pic was bad and you really can't see how very cool it really is on this project. DANG IT!!! Anyway, this is my very first Mo Manning purchase. I'm always so afraid to work with Mo Manning images due to how strict the licensing rules are on these images. Hopefully no one will mind that I altered the image with the Happy Birthday message and that I cut out the face of the cherub to pop it up. I really am thrilled with how this turned out.... I cannot believe that I made that!!!
Here's a close up of the finished Mo Manning image... STILL can't get the awesomeness of that Sakura to show!
Now I can't end this post without extending a HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Meighen for celebrating her Bloggerversary. You did it girl... and with style! Can't wait to get to know you and your blog better over this next year!!!
Ok folks, you should now be off to DD's blog. Have fun with the rest of the hop and good luck to everyone on snagging all of the blog hop goodies!!!
***Update: Ok, so I just realized that it is Meighen's Birthday too!!! YIKES! Meighan, I'm so sorry..... HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHICKIE!!!
