Julie's Blogoversary - Celebrating Friendship Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Celebrating Friendship" Blog Hop in honor of the two year blogoversary of Julie's Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers. If you just happened upon my blog, please head back to Julie's blog and start at the beginning (I'm the 3rd stop on the hop). If you get lost along the way, Julie's blog has a complete list of participating blogs.

There is blog candy hidden on this hop. You should comment on each blog because you never know which one of us has a hidden piece of blog candy.

Several have generously donated prizes. I hope I have the latest list of donors: Unity Stamp Company, Regina Easter, 3 Girl JAM, Timeless Twine, Jessica Shelton-Buffa, My Scrap Chick, Lucy Evans and Ruth & Erin Carnes. I am truly sorry if I missed anyone.

You should have arrived here from Rebecca D's Blooming Pink.

I recently received the Cricut® Explore by Provo Craft that debuted in February and I have been busy learning as much as I can about it and Cricut® Design Space. So, even though I think most of the other stops on this hop will show you some amazing stamped creations, my card was completely created using my Explore and Cricut® Design Space.

This is how the front of my card turned out:

Julie's Blog Hop

And here is the inside:

Julie's Blog Hop 2

The card base is from the image set Just Because Cards, the bracket label is from Phrases and the flower cluster is from Kate's ABCs. I used Don Juan to write the sentiment using the Cricut Explore Gold Metallic Pen. I used Close to My Heart cardstock in the following colors: Colonial White, Ruby, Hollyhock, Blush, Pear and Honey.

Before you head to the next stop be sure to leave a comment. Even I do not know if a comment on this post will be selected for one of the wonderful prizes. Your next stop is Paula M's Scrap Addict's Attic.

I hope you are enjoying the hop and thanks for stopping by.

  15. You are absolutely right, Brenda. I'm suspecting I'll see plenty of stamping on this hop. How clever of you to use you Cricut entirely on this card. It is a beautiful card and PERFECT for this hop! Thank you for the time and effort you have put into this. I truly treasure your friendship!

  16. This is a pretty card, Brenda! How exciting that you got the new Cricut! I watched the reveal on HSN (I think) and it looked fun. I can't justify spending the money at this point. It's nice to hop with you. I hope that all is well with you :-)
