April Cross Canada Blog Hop

Hi Folks!

Welcome to our April Cross Canada "Celebrations" Blog Hop.

If you've just hopped onto my blog, then you CAN start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada, then please start at the beginning at Michelle's blog. If you came from Caroline's blog then you are in the right place!

This month we're all about the celebrations in our lives - birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, new babies, new homes. Any reason you have to celebrate!

Today I'm sharing two cards celebrating the birthdays of two of my nieces.

Up first is this "Super Girl" Birthday Card - which was totally inspired by a card in the Seasonal Expressions Idea Book (pg 58)

And up next is this card for one of our teen nieces.

As you might have guessed, I had a lot of fun with a bunch of my Thin Cuts dies making both of these cards. Supplies for both are listed below.

Super Girl Card Details

14th Birthday Card Details
  • finished size: 6 x 6 inches, white daisy card stock base
  • patterned paper: CTMH Make Waves
  • dies: Happy Birthday, Block Numbers, Sweet Baby Stamp & Thin Cuts
  • embellishments: twine
  • retired Fundamentals papers for the mat, die cut letters, and one of the balloons.

That's it for me! Up next is Arlene!

Remember - if you get lost you can always head back to Michelle's blog as she has the full list of participants.

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we are able to inspire you in some way. If so, please leave us a comment as we love to hear back from the hoppers! We hope you are able to join us again next month when we will be celebrating relationships. So be sure to mark May 15th on your calendar. And don't forget, you can reach out to your local consultant to purchase any of the items you see on the hop today!

As always, thanks for stopping by!
