"It's Easter!" Blog Hop - Day 1

Hi everyone! Welcome to the “It’s Easter” Blog Hop to help you get ready for this wonderful Easter season. Joining me in this fun celebration are some of the most talented crafters that I know. There are a few rules for this hop, in support of each crafter and the time they have put into their work, to be eligible for my blog candy you MUST visit each blog and leave a comment. If you have just stopped by to check my blog you can find the beginning of the hop HERE.

This hop runs from April 7th - 10th, and there will be new projects posted on each blog each day! Check out each blog and see what each blog has to offer for BLOG CANDY!


For day one, I created a really fun card using my Cricut, some Imaginisce paper, and my Action Wobbles! To start, I made a short video so you can see the Action Wobbles in action!



Isn't that fun? I used a plain white A2 card base and covered it with this adorable Imaginisce Easter paper that I've been hoarding for a L O N G time! I cut my Chick and the Egg from the Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge. This is one of my absolute FAVORITE cartridges!



To make the bottom of my egg stationary I just used some foam adhesive to lift it up. I actually stacked these 3 high so there would be plenty of room for my chick to wobble around. This is one of those cards that would be best hand delivered, or mailed in a box! My 5 year old daughter has already decided that we should leave this card for the Easter Bunny!

Now you might be wondering about my blog candy... I have a TON of goodies in my stash from CHA so I will be drawing one name for every 50 comments that are made during the entire run of the hop to win a mystery gift! So, if you come back and comment (only ONCE per day) each day you will have a total of 4 entries into each drawing! I will pay for shipping to the U.S. and Canada. If you are outside of this area, you can win but you must pay for shipping. Please make sure that you are following my blog as well, because the more followers I have, the more goodies I giveaway! After you leave your comment your going to hop on over to Mickie's Blog!
