For Cath (sans CHA) with Love Blog Hop!!


Hello!

Thanks for joining us in the:

For Cath (sans CHA)
with Love Blog Hop!


...a big yahoo for Lorena and Virginia for putting together this fun Blog Hop!

Make sure you check out the whole list of people that are playing which is available over on Lorena's blog, Paperella Plays and Virginia's blog, Yes, Virginia.

I wanted to put together a cheery card for the oh-so-inspirational Cath:

Seriously though, who doesn't know and love Cath for ALL that she constantly does!  She's not able to make it to CHA because of  a painful injury.  I hope you feel better Cath!!!!!  Please check out Cath's post here.

I was inspired by the Sweet Sunday Sketch:


My choice of colors is ala CR84FN47:


Did you see the latest LESSology Challenge?!!!



We want to see what you do with blooms, glorious blooms! Remember to include at least one upcycled item on your project! 

Our sponsor is Vintage Street Market who is offering a fab prize package!


My bloom was sculpted {sounds fancy, eh?} with a wet strip of PTI Hawaiian Shores.  I squeezed out all the excess and shaped it how I liked...it dried and I topped it off with a pearl...easy smeasy:)  Can you spot my upcycled product?  That acetate flag has been cut from packaging that had a birthday candle.  I backed it with patterned paper...all the patterned paper is from the Crate Paper Heart Collection.  Everything is nestled on a white cardstock base...did you notice the sweet pink stitching?

Thanks soooo much for poppin' by!
