April Showers, Full of Flowers blog hop -Day ONE



Welcome to our April Showers, Full of Flowers blog hop!

On the first day we will show you a project with the theme,
April Showers, then on Sunday we will either transform our project into a
"Full of Flowers" project. Or we made a matching item with the theme of
Flowers....

Erica's Craft Room is sponsoring this blog hop with ONE of the
prizes being a Cricut Mini machine. Be sure to comment on ALL of the blogs both days to be entered to win the Cricut Mini Machine!
I am almost embarrassed to post this project... it is by far the worst thing I have ever made....
My Crafty mind was out to lunch :)
I used Create a critter for the rain, rainbow and clouds.
I used Noah's ABC Animals for the Phrase.
I cut all items at 2 3/4"
Tomorrow's flowers will hopefully make up for today's poor project.
Don't forget I also have a challenge blog to win a gift certificate to my webstore.
Also I am giving you a 30% coupon for anything non-Provo Craft (Non-Cricut) in the store. You have to come back tomorrow to get the coupon code for 30% your purchase.
But I am giving away a Brand New Cricut Mini Machine on this hop!

Next you should go to Claire's blog

Great start to the hop, your card is very nice, even if you don't think so. I couldn't sleep last night so I visted all the stops except for Tanya and left a little love at each. Looking forward to part two of the hop. TFS and for the great prize...fingers...toes and eyes are crossed for this one! LOL!

Ellen Jarvis said...

Oh Erica, you are SO funny! I agree with your previous commenters -- there's no such thing as a "bad" homemade card, and that you shouldn't be so tough on yourself. We all have days when our Mojo is more JOE than MOE. Your humor and sense of fun keeps me coming back for more! Thank you again for the opportunity to win a great prize. A Mini would be perfect for cropping, like a laptop versus your desktop, right?? See, I can justify ANY crafty spending!!!!! :)

PS - Stop by my blog and see a card I made using my new SOPHIE cartridge from you ... and a shout/thanks to you too!

Fondly,
