Anything Goes Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my post for the
"Anything Goes Blog Hop"
This is a joint hop by the Eureka! Stamps and 
QKR Stampede Design Teams.
These are 2 sister companies and we are 
coordinating to have this fun and inspirational blog hop.
And there will be prizes, so be sure to comment on 
all the different blogs in the hop.
Someone is going to win, it might be you!
At this time I'm on the Eureka! Design Team, but have
been on the QKR team in the past.
If you are arriving from 
you are on the right path.
If you find a broken link along the way,
where you will find the entire line up.
Now on to my projects!
Today I've got a few projects to show you.
For my first one I've used 
"Life is Sweeter" (#9102) from
Here is the front of the card,
just pull on the ribbon at the top and....

you see the sentiment.
I must note that 
this sentiment is only part of the image
there is an adorable little girl image that goes with 
this sentiment

For my next card I used
"Celtic Background" (#31601) from
I stamped the Celtic Background onto different colored 
scraps of card stock, using Versa Mark Ink.  
I then punched out varied sizes of circles.
The "hello" was cut with my Silhouette Cameo
I cut the hello several times and glued them on top of each other
to form a sturdy embellishment.
I then cut one from yellow for the top layer.
I used Glossy Accents to finish off the sentiment.
Then it was just a matter of putting the card together.
I love this card, so happy!

My last project is a layout I made about my 
Godchild's Christening.
I stamped
"Lg Cross with Flowers" (#13403)  from 
onto water color paper and colored it
with water color crayons. 
I then fussy cut it for the layout.

I have covered the personal information on the layout with 
a piece of white card stock for this post.

All the mats were cut using my Perfect Layers Minis 
and my Perfect Cutting Mat from 
Every cut is precise and easy using these tools.
Now it's time to go on to 
where I'm sure you'll get some great inspiration.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll stop again soon.
In the mean time, pop over to 
and see what wonderful images these 2 companies have to offer.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
