Card Creations Volume 10 blog hop

Hello and welcome!  I am so glad you found your way here from Kelley Eubanks blog!  I am so happy to be participating in this special blog hop celebrating the newest member of the Paper Crafts Magazine family, Card Creations 10!  In celebrating the number 10, I created a ten card Thank You set to give to my mother on Mother's Day.  




To start, I simply inked up my floral stamp with Memento Markers, adding a bit of shading to the blooms and stamping a sentiment to finish them off.




I then tied them all up with a lovely black satin ribbon from The Ribbon Carousel store!  A great quick and easy gift.




I certainly can't wait to get my hands on this issue and I know you feel the same, so leave a comment on this post and you might be the one chosen to get a copy!  Also be sure to pop back over to the Paper Crafts Blog for more chances to win!
