Polka Dot Blog Hop

Good morning everyone and welcome to the Polka Dot Blog hop!! If you are coming from Kassidy over @ inking it up crazy then you are in the right place!! I am the second on the hop so if you want to start from the beggining you can click on her name to head over to her blog!!

Ok so as you can tell from my blog and many of my projects I love polka dots!! I was so super excited when I heard the theme of this hop I was like no problem I got this lol, but then came the time to craft and I could not think of anything!!

Well my crafters block finally lifted and this is what I came up with my very first easter card!
I finally got to use my new peachy keen faces!! I am not 100% happy with this card I think it is a little plain and simple, but oh well it is still cute I think :) I think it is that face LOL!! I stamped the seniment on the card and colored it in with a purple gelly roll pen to give it a little bit of demension {the camera would not pick up the color, but trust me it is the same color as the ribbon} I had never tried it and I like the results!
Materials used:
  • Create a critter cartridge
  • Cuttlebug/ polka dot embossing folder
  • ATG gun
  • Peachy Keen bright eyed and bushy tailed face stamp assortment
  • white and purple gelly roll pen
  • ribbon from michaels
  • paper is from a spring paper stack from walmart {40 sheets for $5 not bad }
  • the solid paper and the paper for the rabbit is post it craft paper, OMG it is awesome!!
Well A hop would not be complete without some blog candy so I am giving away a
$10 gift certificate to Market Street Stamps just in time for their new release!!

  • To win leave a comment with your name and a way to reach you incase you win!
  • You dont have to be a follower, but I would love it if you were

Ok so now it is time to hop on to the next blog which is the Fabulous Alex @ You had me at craft!! Have fun hopping!! Thanks for stopping by have a great weekend!!

I think this card is awesome!
You are too hard on yourself Erika.
I am the same way though, always second guessing myself when I make something.
I love the addition of the ribbon and the purple stitching...it really makes the whole card "pop"!
Also, it's cool that you used the Post-it Paper.
I just got some of that and haven't tried it yet, so it's nice to see that you said it's awesome! I can't wait to try it now.
Thank-you for some great Easter Inspiration!
