CSS Blog Hop - My Favorite Things - 2/26/2013

It is another StampTV blog hop. This time around it is really fun - it is called "My Favorite Things"! Doesn't that remind you of the wonderful Sound of Music? That challenge was to use or make our favorite things. You should have arrived from the fabulous blog of Lori McAree with what I am sure was a wonderful project or maybe 2!

My favorite things are birthdays, or maybe it is just that they occur in my family on a regular basis. These are 2 cards I made for two of my daughters in law. The first one was made using the incredible Vogue Vases 2. I love the way the colors worked together on this card with the patterned paper called Wisteria Lane with the PL Vibrant Violet and Jelly Bean Green. 


Here is the other birthday card, for this one I used Sweet Tweets. It is a fun card to make and look at. I used some wonderful GKD patterned paper called Pool Side for this one. I love how it worked together with the PL Cranberry Tart.



Now hop on over to visit Sharri Seffens, for some more fabulous eye candy. If you want to start at the beginning or get lost along the way, just jump directly to the links for all of the wonderful creations on StampTV.

Thanks for stopping by and always thanks for commenting.
