it is Blog hippity hoppity time!


Welcome to the Jump into Summer Blog Hop with myStampBOX and our preferred product partners (Helmar, PK Glitz and Kiki Art)! If you have just happened upon my blog today, you may want to head to the start of the blog hop, the myStampBOX blog .

Here is our Summer Blog Hop schedule just in case you missed anyone:

Ellen http://closeyourears.blogspot.com -------> you are here!!!
Ally http://yourmemoriescanada.blogspot.com back to the myStamp BOX blog The challenge for this Blog Hop was to take anything that makes you think of Summer and create a project that fits the theme.

Okay..enough of that boring stuff ;) Here are the goodies I made for today. Since I am blessed with being able play with both Kiki Art and myStampBOX goodies, I made two cards. This one is using some Kiki Art Water Rain paper and I stamped right on my trim with some Stazon. The stamp is from the cute cute Wishing You Sunshine set. It is soo so cute! I used my white craft ink from SU! on the clouds. AND I am so super lucky to have lots of Helmar goodies to play with, too! So each project here today includes some Helmar.


How cute are these rain drop bling cuties from Mark Richards?


The Butterfly fluttery tail is actually a Kiki Art Heart Bling! The Thanks stamp is from the myStampBOX Everyday Lines small box set. I looove this set. I just love to say, "thanks".


I used my Cuttlebug and embossed the Core'dinations Cardstock and Scenic Route Butterfly. Then I added some Shimmerz to the butterfly as well. The patterned paper is Kiki Art and the stamp in the upper right hand corner is a myStampBOX stamp Simple Sentiment.
