Just a little something

I have had such a busy summer this year, I haven't had much time to try and be creative.  I was finally able to squeeze in a little time to cover a box for my mother in-law and make a card for a friends birthday.

Here is the box before I covered it.

Here is the box covered, not too shabby if I do say so myself. Since I haven't done this before. lol
I love this paper (HL) & ribbon (PTI)

And a Birthday card for a friend. See I love this paper so much I had to use it for a card too. lol
The stamps are stampin up, colored with stampin up pencils & blender pen, crystal effects, the sentiment is from PTI - birthday bash sentiments, A2 size card, grosgrain ribbon, pearls, paper pack from HL.

Blog Hop Sign Up!

Hello All You Wonderful Crafters!

I am looking for anyone interested in participating in a "Christmas in July" hop!
Every year I go to a wonderful little Island called "Put in Bay" it is located in Lake Erie in Ohio. 
They have a big party called "Christmas in July" it is on July 23rd. All the shops, bars & restaurants decorate for Christmas and there is a contest for the best decorated boat as well.
So I thought why not have a "Christmas in July" hop, I would like to keep it to about 20 participants. It will start on Friday July 22nd & end on Sunday July 24th.

All you have to do is make something Christmas related: cards, layout, gift or any project for Christmas. You can make one project or one for each day of the hop. 

If you would like to participate or sponsor a giveaway Message Me with your info & include email & blog name. Deadline for sign up is July 2nd.

I look forward to hopping with you!

The Unity Blankets

I found out today that a friend of mine has made this adorable book for kids who are having a hard time adjusting to being separated from there loved ones. She started it because her son was having a hard time adjusting to being separated from mommy & daddy when he first started school.
If you know some children who are having a hard time adjusting to being separated from their loved ones, this might be something that could help.
Here is the link to her web site unityblankets, you can read all about it on her site.
