Pink E's 4th of July Blog Hop!



Hi everyone!  I have a project for you today as part of Pink E's 4th of July Blog Hop!!  If you have just come from Girlia's Cards, you are on the right track.  If you've just stopped by my blog, You should start at Creations by Pink E so you don't miss out on any of the awesome projects and giveaways that you might find along the way :)


I decided to make a fun and easy card for you today.  This would be quick for you to put together if you need something fast for tomorrow!  


The details:
  • My Pink Stamper Yankee Doodles Kit
    • Stamps 
    • Pro Markers
    • Paper
  • Cuttlebug Stars Folder
  • White Organdy Ribbon
  • pop dots
I love this Cuttlebug folder and am so glad I bought it in time to use for the 4th of July!!  This is an easy card to put together and I think all the layers just make it so much better :)  

Now, I do have a giveaway for you today.  I will be giving away everything pictured to one lucky person!  A DCWV 8x8 Scrapbook Kit in a Stack, 2 rolls of ribbon, and 2 packages of Creative Charms Craft Embelllishments.  Just leave 1 comment on this post with a way for me to contact you.  This will remain open until Friday night (July 6) and I will post the winner on Sunday.  I will need to hear from the winner within 5 days or I will draw again or it goes back in my giveaway pile :)

Your next stop on the hop is Crafting with Creative M -- Have fun!

Here's the blog hop line-up in case you get lost along the way!  Thanks so much for joining in on Pink E's 4th of July Blog Hop!  Have a safe and fabulous 4th!!

  18. What a beautiful card, it looks to me like you added quite a few little extra details to it, i love the white ribbon, it really makes the whole card pop. And what a nice touch with the embossing. (i can't believe with all the embossing folders i have, and i have plenty, that i don't have that one)
