Birthday Blog Hop, PPA82 & CQC74!!

DSCF8014-1

Woohoo! Lots going on today in our little corner of blogland! First, it’s ColourQ time, and here is Arielle’s inspiration for you all to peruse:

cqc74!

Aren’t these colors fun? They were just right for a special card for a special someone whose birthday just happens to be TODAY!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TAMMY!!!!! And to celebrate, we’re having a BLOG HOP to honor Tammy! We hope you’ll follow along and play with us too---and if you can use the CQC colors, that’s even better! Tammy is such an awesome crafter—she has a heart of gold, is a great encourager and her creativity knows no bounds! She is always quick to get things organized and is a great Christian wife, mom and friend. Love ya, GF!

So first, let me give you a couple of details about the hop! It starts at Barbara’s blog here. That’s where you’ll head if you want to start at the very beginning, or if you want to see all the participants! From my blog, you’ll want to hop next to visit Kristin! All along the way, you’ll see amazing creations all created for our friend Tammy. So we hope you’ll show her some love too. If you want to mail her your card, just let me or Bar know and we can give you her snail mail address! So on to the hop! Here’s the card I’m sending to Tammy:

I used a digi image and sentiment from Arielle and did some paper piecing with various BG and SU papers:

I have lots of scallops on my card, which qualifies it for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge 82 as well! A couple of buttons and some crinkly ribbon, along with a my “friend” sentiment from SU’s You’re A Gem finished it off. Another quilt-themed sentiment from Arielle graces the inside:
