Friendship Blog hop


Welcome to my Blog, and the Friendship Blog Hop! If you've come from visiting Shawnee, you're in the right place. If you were just looking at my blog and want to play along with our blog hopping fun, you can go to the beginning at www.craftycardgallery.blogspot.com
 .  This blog hop is all about friendship; cards that you would love to send to or receive from a friend - congratulations, good luck, thanks for being a friend, etc.  Sometimes it's nice to just send a card to a friend for no particular reason or to celebrate something with them.  There will be opportunities to win some blog candy and get lots of ideas!  So sit back, and enjoy the hop!

This is my first time participating in a blog hop so I got a little crazy with the projects.

My project for today included several cards since this is a card gallery hop after all.  I could not just make a card with all the lovely visitors stopping by so I decided to do a couple of the tutorials on Splitcoaststampers.  
This card was a lot simpler than I thought it would be. I saw this tutorial and had to give it a try. 

 I added Enamel accents in the middle of the flowers. It is hard to see but gives them some dimension.
I used my Irock to add a little bling to the sentiment.

Ingredients:
The Doodle Around Stack by DCWV patterned paper
Martha Stewart Version of a scor pal--much cheaper and I used a coupon. I love it.
Stampin Up Stamp
Irock~~my new toy
ribbon
flowers
brads
button
Enamel accents white~~on the flowers. This stuff is very neat if you haven't used it yet.


I am still debating adding something to the front of this box. When I figure out who I am giving it too I will personalize it a bit more. 
There is a little note pad and a pocket for holding stamps on the base. Two pockets in front of the card holder for whatever you like. I am adding a few small cards, tags, and a decorated clothes pin or two. I am not completely done with all that yet since this is a card hop I focused on the cards first.

Here are some cards that I made to match this box. I am going to put several of them in it and use the rest as sets to give to other people. I am trying very hard to make sets of cards now instead of just one since I have way too many scraps. A 12x12 makes at least for cards so that is what I did.
These cards I printed out the sentiment and added a few buttons, flowers and a ribbon. I kept them very simple because I loved the paper and didn't want to cover it up too much.


These cards I used the tree from Simply Charmed. It is such a cute tree. I printed out the sentiment and inked the edges. 
 



In case you get lost along the way here is the line up.
