Cardz TV "Count Your Blessings" Blog Hop





I'm so glad you could join us today for our "Count Your Blessings" Blog Hop! The Cardz TV card team is showcasing a new stamp set from Mary at Cardz TV, so grab your favorite beverage, sit back and relax, and get ready for some fun, inspiration, and the chance to win some blog candy too!  Here is the stamp set "Count Your Blessings". Aren't they wonderful sentiments?!



What's a blog hop without some blog candy! I will give one winner their choice of a $10 gift card from AC Moore, Hobby Lobby or JoAnn's and I will announce my winner on Tuesday.  Mary will be giving 2 sets of Cardz TV Stamps for her blog candy, so if you’re a follower of Cardz TV, just leave  a comment on her blog! Mary will use random.org to pick a winner, and will announce the WINNER on Monday! 

Below is a list of all the stops in today's "Count Your Blessings" Blog Hop.
Here is my card using the "Count Your Blessings" stamp set. I got a little carried away with the pearls and I see I have one missing too. lol  I will fix that. I also cased this card from Carol and you can find her card here. Thanks for the inspiration Carol! You have to treat yourself and go to her blog, she makes the most awesome cards!  My heart is cut out in the middle. I took the outer heart and popped it up on foam tape, the middle of the heart is popped up as well, but on 2 thickness of foam tape. My birds are just glued on the middle heart, but the embossed wings are popped up on the birds. This card would need to be hand delivered because of all the pearls. I plan on using it for my son and soon to be DIL as the wedding is the end of June. We will be placing cash inside of it as every newlyweds could use some cold hard cash! lol 





Thank you for hopping with us today…we hope you had fun! And as always thank you for visiting with me today, I always love when you stop by for a spell. Crafty hugs, Brenda

Brenda said...

Hi Linda! The embossing folder I used is a Sizzix one. I don't know the name of it. At first I thought it was a SU Sizzix folder, but it's not. I did a search in the Sizzix catalog but couldn't find it there either, but could have missed it. So sorry, wish I had more info for you. Hugs
