Welcome to Cardz TV Stamps Design Team 'Mom's The Word' Blog Hop!!! Now if you came here by way of Kate's blog you are in the right place!! Saw some awesomeness there didn't ya?! If you just happened by to pay me a visit, why Thank You, but why don't you start at the beginning-Mary's blog and hop along with us. Mary will be giving away 2 sets of her Cardz TV Stamps. Winners choice. Run over and check them out right quick. I'll wait on ya...........awesome aren't they? The very best!! For our blog hop we are featuring a card, craft or gift for Mother's Day. I had so much fun making the last box that I did-you can see it here, I just had to make another one. I used the Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge. On page 21 is a cube box and a scallop lid. I cut them at 11 inches. I also cut the tag that is on page 54. I cut the top one at 7 1/2 inches and the white part at 8 inches. The cardstock I used is from the Paper Studio-Daydream Doodle Paper Pack. This is Hobby Lobby's brand. It was so easy to put together. I ran a layer of two sided tape around the side edge of the lid and ran this lace (from stash) around it. Decided it needed a little more. So I cut stripes of the half faux pearls and ran them along the lace. Now I'm here to tell you that just putting them on doesn't work!! I had it sitting on the kitchen table and the next day the pearls had fallen off!!! The preglue on the back just wouldn't stay on the lace. I went back and added glue dots to the back of the pearls. Fixed the problem!! I stamped my sentiment on the top of my tag. I used the Happy Days stamp set from Cardz TV Stamps. I had picked up some Prima Flowers-Sugar Blooms at Hobby Lobby. Love all the different colors. I used those in two of the corners and on the bottom of the tag. I just had to use some Prima Say it in Pearls on the boxlid and tag, too. To finish it off I added a stick pin that I made. That's it! Sure hope ya'll like it!!!
Now it's time to hop over to DeNetra's blog and check out her creation. You won't be sorry, that's for sure!!!! Now if you happen to get lost, check the end of my post for a listing of all of the hop stops.
And what is a blog hop without a little bit of candy. I don't have a picture, but I'll tell ya what I'm giving. I have a set of Prima Flowers and some Smooch Spritz to give-a-way. You don't have to be a follower, but I sure won't turn you away! Sorry, but due to postage cost, I will have to ask that you have a USA or Canadian address. Also leave me a way to contact you if you win. I will announce the winner on Monday, May 7th. That's when Mary will announce the winner of the stamps sets, too.
