Samantha's Cricut Creations Blog Hop

Welcome to Samantha's Cricut Creations 1st anniversary blog hop! 

If you have just hopped on the tour, please go to Samantha's blog at to start at the beginning. If you have arrived from Paula then you are in the right place. 

Since it is Samantha's blogaversary, I decided to make a fun "Celebrate" card! Of course it had to be cheerful, fun and most definitely...glittery & sparkly! I used Martha Stewart "Elegant Cake" cart for the Celebrate cut. The gorgeous background paper is DCWV "Lemon Flower" and the card base and rosette is SU Island Indigo (I don't think I have ever used this color before!!! But I love it!!) I made the rosette using an 11" x 1 1/2" strip of Island Indigo, punched with a scallop border punch, then scored at every scallop. Fan folded the piece then formed my rosette. I added a sparkly smiley face from Recollections (Michael's) for the medallion! I also covered my "Celebrate" image with Star Dust Stickles! Oh, quick little note....I completed my Stickles collection!!! I have every color now and am SO excited!!! Thank you to all (Tammy!!)  who helped me with my quest! :)    

Hope you enjoyed my project today and I would like to offer some BLOG CANDY for a lucky friend! One lucky friend will receive an envelope of goodies from me! Maybe some embellishments, maybe some ribbon...who knows what could be in there! Just be a follower & leave me a comment with a way to get a hold of you if you win! :)

Laura, I have been a follower for quite some time and I am not surprised that you would have such an awesome card. Just the name of the paper, Lemon Flower,makes me like this card. The smile face in the middle is so darn cute. That indigo is a beautiful color and the silver is just beautiful. Congrats on your Stickles quest. Maybe I need to start one!!
