Zoe's " Friendship" Blog Hop


(If you are here for the LULP, please click HERE :D)

Welcome to
Zoe's "Friendship" Blog Hop
you are in store for a lot of great projects, prizes and fun!
If you have come from Alina's page 
you are in the right place! 
If you have gotten to my page
and would like to start at the beginning of the blog hop,
please start with our lovely hostess Zoe
so that you can join in on ALL of the fun!

Well for starters-I am SOOOO excited! I have been asked (along with 15 wonderfully talented ladies) to join Zoe's "Friendship" blog hop! This is my first blog hop so I am excited and a bit nervous :) If you are not familiar with a blog hop and how it works, here is some info to get you
on your way to join in on the fun:

You start at the first blog (click on Zoe's listed above)  looking at the amazing friendship project(s) on her blog. You then click on the follow button (whichever platform suits you best or ALL OF THEM!) so that you are able to continue to check out her wonderful projects in the future.  Next, please comment on the projects because we all LOVE feedback! You will then
go to the next in line doing the same and repeat-
That's it! If you aren't sure where you are or where you need to be, I have a list below with all of our participants to help you out :)
                                                                                                                   The BEST PART is you can win a prize just for leaving comments and following my blog right in the comfort of your own home and chair! 
NOW HOW DO YOU GO WRONG WITH THAT??!!

Now I know I love to win prizes so of course I LOVE GIVING AWAY PRIZES and one lucky blog candy winner will win the really cute acrylic stamp set "Little Star" pictured below from FANCY PANTS!


This is a close up of the images


Now, to win you need to be a follower of my blog and comment on my project-THAT'S IT! The blog candy winner will be announced on Tuesday by 10:00 AM 
Pacific Time :) Good luck everyone! 
I am going to have one of my sons pick a number (between 1 and the total number of people 
that left a comment by 11:59 PM 6/27) 
and that will decide the winner! 
That way my boys get to be included in the fun!
 
Now, more fun - my project! The theme is friendship so I created a card using bright colors because they make me smile just like my friends! I used two Technique Tuesday stamp sets for my card. I used "All About Me" (friends) & "Loving Words" by Ali Edwards (thank you & for being in my life.) I used Bo Bunny 
paper the Popsicle Collection,) red paper (my stash,) 
yellow pom-pon ribbon (Michael's,) orange rhinestone 
bling (Queen & Co.,) Stampin' Up! Bigz Sizzix die
"Top Note," Versamark Ink (Tsukineko,) Stampin' Up! 
ticket corner punch, Creative memories corner
rounder punch, white glaze pen (Sakura,) 
Zing blue glitter finish embossing powder, my heat
gun, Beacon 3 in 1 glue and red wire (26 gauge.)

I die cut the blue paper with the top note die and used the white glaze pen to highlight the perforation border around the die cut. I cut a piece of Bo Bunny paper, stamped the sentiments on it with Versamark.  I then used the blue Zing glitter embossing powder, shook off the excess and heat embossed it. I used my ticket punch on the right two corners of the sentiments paper. I cut a piece of red paper, mounted the sentiments piece of paper to it and used my corner rounder on the left two corners and my ticket punch on the right two corners of the red paper. I glued the yellow pom-pon ribbon and affixed the orange rhinestones to the paper. I used the red wire and molded a heart to fit around part of my sentiment. I used a small amount of Beacon 3-in-1 glue (I bought it at the Scrapbook Expo but I think Walmart carries it) and attached the wire heart to the yellow pom-pon ribbon... and there you have it :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my project. I really appreciate it! Don't forget to follow and leave a comment so that you can be eligible for the blog candy stamps from Fancy Pants!
