Hopping With My Favorite Things...

Happy Tuesday everyone, and welcome to this month's new release blog hop with My Favorite Things. Tonight's hop started at Kim's blog, so if you didn't start there, better head back!! If you are here now, you should have come from my girl, Jodi's FABULOUS blog!!

Tonight, it is my job to show you the new Pure Innocence set, One Sweet Chick. She is SUPER cute, and SO MUCH FUN to play with!! This set sells for $9. I decided to paper piece her dress with some Cosmo Cricket Togetherness paper, but the rest of her was colored with my Copics. I just now started using the new X-Press It Blending Cards, and I am SOLD....so awesome!! She was layered with Crushed Curry and Ruby Red. My ribbon is from SU, brads are from Michael's and my spiral clip is from Creative Express. I used the new Upsy Daisy Die-namic, as well as the Notebook Edge Die-namic on the front of my card.

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies, and the new Sweet Stack Die-namic to create my sentiment panel. I am LOVING this month's dies!!

Well, that is it for me for now!! You've got places to go, people to see, and cards to OOGLE!! Have fun!! Next stop...the ever fabulous, and hilariously witty, Michele Boyer!!

Minion For Hire....

Today is the EVER fabulous, and oh so AWESOME, Tammy Hershberger's birthday. In honor of her awesomeness, and birthday, a few friend's of her's have gotten together to celebrate!! Today's hop started at our ring leader, Barbara Anders' blog. If you are here now, you should have come from Danielle Kennedy's blog.

For my card, I used three different sets: two on the outside, one on the inside!! The two I used were Hooga Booga from Stephanie Fizer, and a sentiment from the Who's That Birthday Girl set...I used the Sweet Stack Label Die-namic to cut it out, again...... I paired it with some Sour Apple and Grape Jelly cardstock, and Cosmo Cricket Pixie-licious dp. I also used some MFT ribbon, and some Divine Twine from MFT. The Hooga Booga set is currently in the Bubble Bin...but it was the closest thing to a minion I had...lol.

For the inside, I used a sentiment from the Clearly Sentimental about Birthdays set. I also added a PERSONAL note to Tammy, and I HAD to share. A few days ago, I offered to be Tammy's minion...the offer still stands, Tammy. Anytime you need me, I am always here!! Hope you have a fabulous birthday!!
Well, that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by, and happy hopping! Next stop, Broni Holcombe's blog.

I layered my image with Pink Pirouette, then I used the new Dizzy Doily Die-namic as my last layer. It was cut out of True Thyme. I paired my image with Basic Grey Sugared dp. I added some wide SU Pink Pirouette ribbon, as well as some Cappuccino Twine, sold at MFT.

I used the Sweet Stack Die-namic to cut out my sentiment, again...I know, I am LOVING it though!!
