Mother's Day is Quickly Approaching!

Good Morning and Happy Monday!  

Today is my day to post over at Pinque Peacock!  Since Mother's Day is quickly approaching, I decided to make another Mother's Day card!

When I received this beautiful verse card with the Angel Stick Pin I couldn't wait to use it.  As most of you know the GORGEOUS stick pins are my favorite in the Pinque Peacock shop!  I can't seem to have enough or use them enough!  LOL  

I started with a white card base and added an orange layer.  I embossed some shimmery white card stock added some orange ribbon and finished it off with the verse card and stick pin.  Simple and Elegant!  At least I think so. TeeHee!

Be sure to pop over to the Pinque Peacock shop and take a look around.  The handmade embellishments are AMAZING!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!  
Until Next Time...........

The Creating Blog Hops Cafe' Graduation Blog Hop

Happy Saturday!

Welcome to this months Blog Hop with
The Creating Blog Hops Cafe'!

This month we are honoring GRADUATES!!!! 

 If you have just stopped by to visit with me, thank you and welcome, but please start at the beginning of the hop with our Hostess, Robin Lane with Create-A-Latte.  We don't want you to miss a thing!
So, grab yourself a Latte', sit back and hop along with us as we share our projects with you.

For this month's hop, I created a graduation card!!!!

To create this card, I used my trusty Cricut Expression along with the 3 Birds on Parade Cartridge.  My little guy was cut at 3.25 with all his layers.  I added some googly eyes just for fun!  My ribbon is from my scrap basket so I don't know where I got it.  The stamp is from a set I picked up at Michael's forever ago!  And my buttons are from Walmart.  My card is A2 sized and I started with a black card stock base, added a red layer and then finally the background which is Recollections, but I'm sorry I don't have the pad any longer so I don't know the name of it.  

Now how about the grand prize info for this month...........
