Glitter Queens May Hop Day 3

Good morning Paper Crafters, welcome back to Day 3 of our hop!

I am always so amazed at how quickly these hops go by, must be because they are so much fun. I've had a great time seeing what the other Glitter Queens create, it's wonderful to share ideas. I absolutely love the card Dawn shared yesterday, I saw lots of awesome creations, I'm glad it's summer break so I have time to do some crafty case ing :~)  I want to extend a special thank you to Dawn for spreading the word about our hop and for sending so many visitors our way, Thank you Dawn, your awesome!

For today I have 3 projects to share, to begin I have a couple of cards, that I created using the stamp sets 'Papaya collage' & 'Forever with you' and the new 'in' colors and the new DSP 'Comfort Cafe'. I used some pearl bling and the stitched grosgrain ribbon to embellish. On my Home is where....card I used the new 'in' color markers to color the stamp before stamping, it took a few minutes but I love how it turned out, these colors look beautiful together.

It's hard to see in the photo but I used dazzling diamonds on the rose on the front of the thankful card. I left room on the inside to personalize with a note. On both cards I also used the scallop punch on the dsp.

I have a 3rd project to share today,  after a weekend of softball and a little rest yesterday I was itching to do something crafty, so I created a scrapbook page. I've been getting more into scrapbooking lately because I've been trying to get some of our family photos into albums.  I included alot of different elements on this page but I thought they all worked well together. To create it in addition to the supplies mentioned above I also used the stamp sets 'Kindness matters', 'Build a Blossom' and 'Loving thoughts'.

I want to say many Thanks to everyone who took time in their day to join us for this hop, visitors and comments make me very happy. To say Thank you for following my blog and commenting I have an assortment of ribbon, cardstock and brads for my 'Blog Candy'

So follow me and leave a comment for more chances to WIN, I will announce the winner tomorrow Thursday!

Have a wonderful day! Now on to Jennifer's Blog.......
