I have to say I really didn't know what I was going to make for this hop.  I figured everyone would be doing a peace sign as it's the most obvious thing to use, so I decided to dig around in my stash.  I came across this K Andrews stamp and thought it was perfect.  Then I was like, hmmmm.......what am I going to make to use it on?  I started digging through some cartridges and then remembered I had Ribbons and Rosettes and had yet to use it.  Yes, I am a hoarder collector of all things crafty!!  So I put together this rainbowish rosette and added a cloud with that awesome Bible Verse!  I embossed my white card stock with the Sizzex Circles, Leaves and Diamonds embossing folder and couldn't help but add that darling Angel Stick pin from Pinque Peacock!  And there you have a very peaceful card!  

 Up next is SARAH!!!!

Here is our complete line up in case you get lost along the way.

Is it too early for Halloween?

Good Morning!  Today is my day to share some Pinque Peacock awesomeness with you!  When I contacted Jessica and asked her if she could make me some "Fall" colored products she was happy to oblige!  Needless to say when I got all that crafty goodness I was not disappointed.  So today, I used one of the beautiful stick pins she made for me.  

For some reason the big bead on this pin reminds me of hard candy.  You know the kind most of us was able to have as children.  It just looks yummy!!!  LOL  OK, I'll admit I have a bit of an imagination.  On to my's a typical A2 sized card.  The image was cut using my trusty E2 and Mini Monsters Cricut Cartridge at 2 inches.  I added some cute little googly eyes and some bling to her bow.  Every girl needs her bling even if you are an insect.  The ribbon is from Wal-Mart.  My background paper is from K&Company, from I don't know maybe last year or the year before.  Have I ever told you I'm a scrapbook supply hoarder.  Yeah, I buy things and never want to use them because they are too pretty.  I really need help!!  Sorry, I tend to digress a bit.  My cute little Halloween banner was hand cut and the sentiment came from Cardz TV Spooky Sayings stamp set.  Now back to that beautiful pin, you can find some like it here!  If you want something custom made just pick out your beads and let Jessica know what you are looking for.  Or you can do like me and say "surprise me"!  

Did I mention that Pinque Peacock now has all sorts of crafty supplies available for your purchase.  That's right, they have embossing folders, washi tape, adhesives and punches to name a few.  Be sure to head over there and take a look around! 

Have a wonderful day and until next time.................
