I have 2 giveaways for you!!

My 2nd giveaway is a set of Cuttlebug embossing folders.
It is the Companion Folders for Preserves.
This set coordinates beautifully with the
Preserves Cricut Cartridge
or any fruit cut!!

Here is a picture of my
4 big princes (3 sons and a son-in-law)
and the KING!! (hehe, my husband)

Aren't they a handsome bunch!!

Tomorrow, I will show you a picture of my grandsons!

As many princes as I have in my life, I do not make
very many masculine or boy themed cards. 
So this hop was the perfect opportunity to make
something for one of the many princes in my life!!

Now, on to my project for today.

I made a card using the Playtime Lite Cartridge.

My son in law had a birthday this week and he loves to fish,
so I made this card for him!!

This cute little boy was cut at 3.5".  Now he originally came
wearing shorts and a t-shirt, but I made a matching gift bag
 that you will see tomorrow, so I used the overalls
from another figure from Playtime.  I stamped his face
with Peachy Keens Boy Mates stamp set.  Isn't he too cute!!
I tore some paper for the water and the hill he is standing on.
The sun was cut from the iTop and wrapped with
twine, inked and stickled.  The clouds are stickled too.
Even thought this is a boy card, I had to
put a little bling...LOL

This cute sentiment is from Pink by Design
"Simply Everything" stamp set.
I stamped it then heat embossed it
with Zing Embossing Powder.

Please come back tomorrow to see the matching
gift bag I made and for some more fun and a
FABULOUS Surprise at the end of the hop.

Your next stop is Tiffany

Here is the entire lineup in case you get lost along the way.
Please make sure to follow each of the designers blogs and
comment on each of their projects both today and tomorrow
to in eligible for our fabulous giveaways!!
