Little Scraps of Heaven Designs - Blog Hop Day!


Welcome, welcome! This is my first participation in a blog hop by Little Scraps of Heaven Designs . . . if you have come here from Janet's Blog you are in the right place! If you just happened to visit my blog today, you can start the hop at Tricia's Blog.

My name is Nancy and I found LSHD through my many card making adventures with Operation Write Home. While I am primarily a card maker, I love all kinds of paper crafting projects and scrapbooking too. I love the things that LSHD have to offer crafters like myself . . . here is my blog hop project I made to share today! It's a clean and simple but very cute summery card. . .




I made this card by using paper from "The Playtime Stack" by DCWV. I love it because it is kraft paper based. . .and I am really into the kraft (cardboard looking) paper right now! I cut several different patterned papers down to 4x6" (photo sized) and printed the cute LSHD kite digi onto each one. I used the cloud paper as a base and cut out the kite pieces and bows from the other pieces of paper and layered them. The kite digi also has those cute motion dots. . . I simply pierced through each dot to give this card a cute combination of paper piecing and piercing! (Say that five times fast!!)

Here's a closeup of the card work and the inside of the card.

  




I love blog candy but the toughest part is deciding who to give the blog candy to - therefore I am offering the little digi-sentiment that I made for this card to everyone for stopping by! You can download it by clicking the picture to get the bigger version and then selecting "save as" . . . it would be fun for making your own little kite card or layout.



Thanks for stopping by to see my little project. . . don't forget that there is a GRAND PRIZE GIVEAWAY from LSHD for participating in this hop! To be eligible to win, all you have to do is visit each blog on the hop and leave a comment. What is this GRAND PRIZE you might ask? It's amazing. . . $100.00 in cash, plus $100.00 of  FREE PATTERNS from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs too! WOW!

Now then, hop along to Lisa's Blog and see what she has made. . .  and thanks so much for stopping by!
