Cathy visits Kathy

    Hello my crafty friends.  Did you all have a nice weekend?  Did you all have fun celebrating St. Patrick's day.  I sure did, the weather here in Maine was gorgeous, specially Saturday.  Come on Spring!!!

     Well, today is a special day for me, I was asked to be a guest designer  by Kathy at Kathy's Double K Krafts.  When she asked me, I was so excited..  The blogging  world is still kind of new to me, as well as the card making.  I just started a little over a year ago and I am so in love with it.  Soooo, that being sad, I set my mind to thinking what can I make for this special day, and the card below is what I came up with.  I tried to choose some festive papers to portray the excitement in making the card   for today.  I recently won these papers in a giveaway from blog and thought they would be fun.

   As you can see, I decided to add "Hilda Hippo Tear bear"  which I made with the template and supplies I bought from recently.  I just love the patterns, they are made from acrylic and last forever.  Below you will find a list of the supplies i used for today's project.

1~Cardstock from DCWV
2~Prima marketing flowers
3~White ribbon
4~Rhinestones from Michael's
5~ Atg gun
6~"Hilda...fabri-tac, Mulberry paper, waterbrush, tools to brush the paper
7~Create a critter cartridge for Easter basket and scalloped square
8~coil paper clip from my stash of clips
9~ paper trimmer
10~ patterened paper from Glimpses Crafts
11~ pop dots
12~ Martha Stewart embossing powder
13~Versamark stamp
