The Craft's Meow - Want2Scrap Blog Hop!

Hello friends! Today's the day - the big The Craft's Meow/Want2Scrap blog hop!  If you're here from AJ's blog, you're in the right spot.  If not, head over to the Want2Scrap blog to get started! 
For my first card, I used some new papers from Crate Paper and stamped one of the sentiments from Inspired By Audrey on the floral background paper.  I stamped the tulip stems (have I mentioned they are my absolute favorite flowers?) from Flower Garden onto a coordinating journaling card and then stamped the blooms in rose ink, cut them out, and popped them up for some dimension.  I finished the card with the wonderful corner flourish from Want2Scrap!
I had so much fun creating with the W2S bling, I couldn't stop at just one card!  :)  For the second card, I wanted to make something a bit more "black tie" and used the W2S pearl brackets around a January calendar, also from a sheet of Crate Paper.  I stamped the sentiment and images from Ladies and Gents and then pieced the parasol with another piece of coordinating paper.  Since our wedding was in January, I thought it would be a perfect card to give my hubby for our next anniversary.  Here's to hoping he won't see the blog before then...  :)

Now for the fun part!!  Each company will be giving away a prize for lucky participants who complete the hop and leave a comment on each blog.  The deadline for leaving comments to win is Sunday, Aug 12th and winners will be announced on the each blog by Tuesday, Aug 14th.

Thanks for visiting today and now head over to Aimes' blog for some more wonderful inspiration!
