Sweetheart Blog Hop Practice!!

Hi everyone! I've got great news! I was invited to participate in my very first blog hop by Georgiana over at!! :) She's got a great group of ladies working together and this hop is going to be a super sweet one! :) And of course, there will be blog candy too! :) I hope to see you all there with us!

Since I got the email from Georgiana I have been so excited about this! It's put me in a very sweet crafty mood. I thought I should probably make a "practice project" for the hop, so I did :)

      I got to use my "Owl always love you stamp" that I got for $1 at Michaels :) which I put on a 2" scallop heart cut from the Sweethearts cartridge.

I cut the owl from Create-A-Critter at 3.5 inches, but I used the eye cutouts from the Cindy Loo cartridge's owl to open her eyes (these had to be cut at 5 inches to fit over).  I originally saw the owl a different color, but this is what I had in my scrap drawer, so I went with it, and I think she came out really cute :)

This is also my first card using brads, (the small sparkley hearts on the corners) and I'm still not sure if I like them or not, but the holes were made so they were staying!lol

I found the ribbon in my scraps bin and thought it'd be a good touch to bring out the brown in the owl.  

Overall I think it's one of my favorites :) I'm entering it into a few different challenges:

Cupcake Craft Challenge ~ Something New. #124
Easy Craft Projects #29 ~ use old stash
Really Reasonable Ribbon #16 ~ a heart and ribbon


  1. This is super cute! I like the brads, it makes it unique! Good Luck!!!

  2. What an awesome card and the brads are perfect. I am super happy that you will be joining us. Good Luck with the challenges! :)
