Young Crafters Unite Blog Hop!!



Welcome to my section of the Young Crafters Unite Blog Hop!! What makes me a young crafter? Well, I guess it would have to be the fact that I feel young at heart!! The topic for this blog hop is Favorite Things so I decided to use this card which uses several of my favorite things. I love pretty patterned paper, twine and I have just recently started using and loving fabric stickers and Pebbles Layered Embellishments. All of these things together make for a pretty and relatively quick and easy card. It's one of my favorite cards ever!! Scroll down for more favorites, info and links to your next stop.



Materials
Card stock: Marina Mist (Stampin’ Up) 

Decorative Paper:  "Hattie" Remember Roses Paper from Stella & Rose Collection (My Minds Eye)
Fabric Stickers: Elizabeth Park (Little Yellow Bicycle)
Felt Clouds: Clouds Layered Embellishments (Pebbles)
Twine: Blossom (The Twinery)
Tools: Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers)

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my Happy Birds. I'm also showing an older "favorite" card of mine. I just think it's pretty and, well, inspiring!! It features one of my Favorite stamp sets by Impression Obsession called Imagine Words. I love how graphic they are and they are perfect for embossing like I did on this card in silver. I also love these blue flowers - I think they turned out very nice. Here's a link to the original post for all the details. 

So, those were two cards that focus on some of my favorite things. Before you move on remember to leave a comment for a chance to win one of the following prizes: $20 from Simon Says Stamp, your choice of stamp set from Paper Smooches or your choice of stamp set from Lawn Fawn. 
Winners will be chosen randomly and will be posted on the 
Young Crafters Unite Website Wednesday, July 6. You came here from
Danielle and your next place on the hop is Cynthia. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!!
