April Showers Blog Hop

Thanks for joining me for another weekend of Blog Hoppin Fun!


If you have come here from Tina's Blog, you are on the right path!  Keep on hoppin until the end :)

April Showers is our theme, and I went with the "shower" theme and made baby cards for baby showers!  I am addicted to making these stacked present cards lately!  I first saw one that my friend Jayma made, who found it on Vicki's blog.  Recently, I saw a couple cute ones on Haley's blog too.  

I cut my paper strips at 1.25 tall x 3, 2.25 and 1.5 long.  Add a ribbon down the center, or just a bow on top and you're set!  I used the Sweet Baby stamp set and Polka Dot Alphabet for my sentiments.  

Now I'm all set for the next baby shower..... (though I don't know any preggos right now).  

This design is also great for Birthday Cards too!!!!  I made two each of these cards and stamped Birthday sentiments on them :)

Supplies:
BOY:
Sweet Leaf Ink
GIRL:
Hollyhock, Pear ink
Corner Rounder

BlOg CaNdY TiMe!!!!!
I am giving away a brand new Cricut Cartridge:  Robotz
