Welcome to Made Especially For You's 2 Year Blogoversary Blog Hop!
If you're looking to start at the beginning of the hop, you're in the right place!
Today I've brought together some of my greatest crafty friends to celebrate my two year blogoversary! What better way to celebrate than with my most valued crafty friends. :) I'm so thankful for each and every one of them (even those not in the hop today) and am so appreciative of their kind words, support, and willingness to help out when needed. :) I wouldn't of stuck around this crazy "blogosphere" if it weren't for you guys. Thanks, everyone!
Instead of having a theme for the hop, I put together a bingo board full of some of my favorite crafty things and had the participants choose at least 3 of them and create a project.
I chose Stickles, pearls, and twine and made this cute Father's Day card to play along with this week's Peachy Keen challenge and the current linky party at All that Stickles! It's actually pretty fitting since one of the first projects I ever made and posted on my blog was a Father's Day card!
The card is actually a cut from the Silhouette store. I normally don't venture into the world of pre-cut cards since I like coming up with my own layout and style, but this one looked like it would be fun to try! The base is Kraft cardstock, and I separately cut the heart and stars on green paper to bring out some of the DCWV plaid paper I used as a frame. I used Gathered Twigs Distress Ink around the base of the Kraft, and Pumice Stone around the plaid paper. I also used Crushed Olive Distress Stickles to embellish the star that was too small for a stamp.
Aren't these faces the CUTEST?! They're from Peachy Keen's June Stamp of the Month kit, PKSC-18. I finally caved and became a SKOTM member! I'm super happy about it. :) The faces are inked in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and I colored in the eyes with a white gel pen. I distressed the edges of the stars with Peeled Paint Distress Ink by Tim Holtz.
Other embellishments on the card include Honeydew Twine from The Twinery and pearls from Miriam's Crafting Supplies, who happens to be one of our sponsors!
To coordinate with our bingo board, we have sponsors providing prizes to match each item listed on the board!
