Fiskars Orange Blog Hop / World Card Making Day Blog Tour


Happy World Card Making Day, my friends! If you are here because you are following Paper Crafts Magazine's World Card Making Day Tour, welcome! If you are here by way of Patterns by Sher on the Fiskars Orange Blog Hop, welcome too! If you are here because I'm awesome, hi Mom. 

I'm glad you could all stop in, because I have a little bit of a surprise, woo! I'm giving away a brand new Waltzingmouse Stamps Ovals--Classic Frames. All you have to do is leave a comment here on this blog post, tell me anything you want, if the comment is here on this post and it is left by midnight (EST) on Sunday Oct 2nd, it counts! (One comment per visitor, please!)

Not only does my happy hello card have orange on it, but it was made with my favorite Fiskars tool of all, my Premium Cut Line Paper Trimmer. I can't make anything without it, and because of the guide wire, you can see exactly (and I mean EXACTLY where you are cutting!) I love this paper trimmer so much, I have 3 of them! 

Your next stop on the ORANGE BLOG HOP is Maya's Basement Chronicles. Have fun hopping! 

Check back in with me later, I plan to post some more cards and projects today, I might even make a video of my disaster of a craft room just like I did last World Card Making Day.

Well, I think you are awesome, but I'm not your mom, just a blogging friend. Is that still ok? Great card, I'd like to know how to do that kind of stitching but I think I'll leave it to the pros.
