Hot, Hot Hot Blog Hop!

Its Hop time again today!! This fun Summer and July 4th Blog Hop is brought to you by a group of blogging and facebook friends and was organized by the wonderful Taylor Usry! If you arrived here from fellow Stampendous! DT member Taylor's blog then you are right on track, if not, head back to her blog for the beginning of the hop...there are LOTS of prizes up for grabs!!


I have 2 projects for you today. The first is a card that I cerated for the January 2011 Stampendous! catalog. Its an easel card using a variety of Stampendous! sets PLUS yummy Stampendous! white Embossing Powder:

My 2nd project features Uncle Sam from Pixie Dust Studio. Isn't he fabulous?!! The absolute cutest Uncle Sam I have ever seen :) I paired him with some more of that fun glittered and embossed Best Creations paper that I picked up from The Stamping and Scrapbooking Room in G'boro (and yes, she will ship!!) My layout is using Karen G's Sweet Sunday Sketch.
