It’s a GIRL THING! ICS Blog Hop

Our Blog Hop Theme today is “It’s a Girl Thing”!!  Love it!  I could go many different directions with this one!

I’m so fortunate to have 2 daughters, Jenny & Malia.  When they were little, I had a business called Lovebugs, & I used to make cute little outfits for them.  You could never have too much glitter or pink!  Never too many hearts or flowers!  Here’s an old photo of them wearing one of my outfits:

I managed to use some pink, glitter, a flower, some bling and a doily for my girly card.  Here it is!

Look closely and maybe you can find the sparkle…

Here’s the details in case you’d like to make one like it!

  • Stamps:  Jar of Love & Special Reason
  • Ink:  Basic Gray, Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight
  • Paper:  Soft Sky (5 1/2 X 11, score at 4 1/4), Melon Mambo (3 3/8 X 4 7/8), Daffodil Delight (3 1/8 X 4 5/8), Whisper White (4 1/2 X 3)

Jar of Love for April

My daughter, Malia, spent last Christmas with us, and helped me with my calendars.  Here’s a page she created:

Those jars are just adorable!  Our family loves to fish- everyone except Malia, that is.  She says she loves fishing, but just hates to catch them.  Feels sorry for the little things.  Me.  I grew up trout fishing in California with my dad.  I could spend all day looking for the perfect fishing hole & be so happy!  My husband loves deep sea fishing in Hawaii.  He actually was lost at sea about 24 years ago when his boat capsized & was miraculously rescued the next morning!

Now hop on over to see what Crystal & Anne came up with for April.

 

Maui Big Shots! Fun Challenge

Just for fun, I sent out a few things to my downline, the Maui Big Shots!  Their assignment was to make something using these supplies:

The paper was from Serene Scenery DSP Stack.  They also used White Perfect Accents, Mini Paper Clips Combo Pack, & a circle from Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  It’s amazing how different all the cards turned out!!

I have a very creative & fun team & we love getting together to stamp & share ideas!  I wish I would have taken a photo of the inside of Helen’s card…a huge bug-eating spider!  Beth should get extra credit because it looks like she’s the only one to use her paper clip!

Here’s what I came up with:

I paired Crumb Cake with Dapper Denim & added Crushed Curry & Cajun Craze.  The sentiment is from Layering Love.

Anyone interested in joining my team & becoming a “Maui Big Shot!” let me know!  If you sign up before this month ends, you’ll receive 2 FREE STAMP SETS OF YOUR CHOICE!  Most sign up to get the 20 – 25% discount.  But there are so many more benefits!  Friends, fun, & getting creative!

Leave us a comment about our cards!  I think they did a great job & love how different they all are!
