iCopic All About Children Blog Hop!

Hello Friends! Happy Friday! Welcome to the iCopic All About Children Blog Hop! You should be arriving here from Michelle's blog, if not, please head back to the iCopic Blog where our hop begins. You won't want to miss any of the wonderful projects along the way.

Today I am sharing one of my favorite images from Lawn Fawn's My Silly Valentine Set. I honestly don't think this cutie pie image could be any sweeter. This adorable stamp set is not just for Valentine's Day. It's a perfect everyday set to let the ones you love know you are thinking about them. Don't we all just love to shower children with love and affection? Wouldn't it be a sweet surprise for your little one to open up his or her lunch box and find a card from you inside? I had that just in mind when I created this 4-1/4" square card. I stamped the cutie pie image onto X-Press It Blending Card Paper with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using E51 & E53 for the pie and R27 & R29 for the pie plate. I cut out the image using a circle die, cut out a brown cardstock mat using a scallop circle die and adhered the image onto the mat. I added some white dots to the image for highlights and to the scallop circle mat. I assembled the card and finished it off by stamping the sentiment, adding a small piece of ribbon and a cute button with some Cherry Divine Twine.

Thanks for visiting! Now be sure to hop on over to Dana's Blog to see her fabulous creation. iCopic is also offering up some wonderful prizes for our blog hoppers, so be sure to leave me a comment and play along with our All About Children Challenge.

Happy Hopping and Have a Great Day!
