Thanks MOM Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the THANKS MOM BLOG HOP. Thanks for joining us to enjoy all the wonderful, crafty inspiration in honor of mother's everywhere from the talented designers in this hop.

You should have arrived here from Chrissie's blog at http://chatterscene-mom.blogspot.com./ If you missed the beginning of the hop, please go back to the start of the hop at Debbie's blog http://www.debseclecticthoughts.blogspot.com/ to start so you don't miss any of the projects. There is a Grand Prize Blog Candy offered so you want to start at the beginning and read how to participate to win.
This is the card I created for my mom.  I love how it turned out!!
Recipe:
5" square Kraft card base.

My Mind's Eye - Simply Delightful stack - patterned papers

MS Seasonal Cake Art Cricut cart- heart doily cut @4 1/4"
MS All Ocassion Cake Cricut cart- butterflies @3/4", flower2 @1 3/4", 1 1/2", 1 1/4", 3/4"
Plantin Schoolbook - mom @1 1/4"

Brown ink, pink pearl bling by Recollections, pink brad from Oriental Trading Co, lace trim from HL, Tsukineko Sheer Shimmer spray in Sparkle, pop dots for dimension.

I cut 3 layers of the letters in Kraft and glued them together to form chipboard.  The final top layer I cut in the patterned polka dot paper.  I'm sure I remember seeing this technique on the Cricut Circle blog on one of the DT's amazing projects--so thank you for this great idea.

I have one more project for you :-)

Recipe:
A2 size card base in Kraft.

My Mind's Eye - Simply Delightful stack

Cake Basics Cricut cart- frame2 @4" using the fit-to-length feature
Nursery Rhyme Cricut cart - M @ 1 1/4", om @ 1"

MS photo corner punch, Diamond Stickles on 'mom'. 

I used the same technique as described above to create a chipboard look for the frame and the letter 'M'.

Thanks for hopping along with us. Remember, if you leave a comment on every designers blog hop post, your name will go into the drawing for the Blog Candy that our THANK MOM BLOG HOP hostess, Debbie is offering as a Grand Prize.
Next up on the hop is the talented Suzanne at http://cricutcraftingrammy.blogspot.com/.  Happy Mother's Day to all the moms!!!
