My Pinkalicious Blog Hop Challenge (April)

Hi everyone!  Outside of dealing with terrible allergies or maybe it is a cold this weekend, I was able to hop along on Friday with My Pink Stamper’s Pinkalicious Blog Hop.  The challenge gave me a kick-start on my Mother’s Day project, since it was to make something for Mother’s Day.  So that is what I did!

If you have not noticed, I have been on a kick of making paper flowers using strips of double-sided scrapbook paper.  So I scaled it down and incorporated it onto a card!

Thanks for coming and sharing a piece of “getting ready for Mother’s Day with the thanks to a April MPS blog hop challenge” pie with me.

Recipe:

Cuttlebug: Swiss dots

Flowers: cut at 1/2 inch strips x 6 inches for the smaller ones and 8 inches for the bigger one(each flower had 6 strips)

Paper: K&Company Designer Stacker

Embellishments: Some extras I had lying around (not sure where I got them)

Ribbon: Crinkle Ribbon from My Craft Spot.

I am a stay at home domestic engineer that has a love for my family, food, writing, crafting, photography and most of all a clean and orderly house. I feel I was born in the wrong era in many things and the only thing I would change if I was a "Donna Reed or June Cleaver" kind of mom is that I would still get to wear my sweats and Crocs while washing the windows.
