The First Ever Crafting Cafe Blog Hop - 1 July

Hello and welcome to my blog!

It's so exciting, The First Ever Crafting Cafe Blog Hop!  I hope this is the first of many to come!  I can't wait to see what you've all made!  This hop is being hosted by Nikki Smith.  She is so talented!  I love going to her demo's when she's up in the Highlands of Scotland!

You should hopefully have arrived here from Dawn's Blog.  If not, please go to the start of the line up to Nikki's Blog and work your way through the line up.  There are many talented and creative crafters in the line up, so I know their creations are going to be fab!!

The theme of todays hop is friendship.

My project is a birthday card for a very special friend of mine.  She has been such a great influence on me and my crafting expertise/knowledge/growth.  She's very special to me too.  She's kind, funny, strong, creative, brainy, sensible, thoughtful and trustful.  I'm so glad I have her as a friend.

So here's my card.

To make this card, I used the following materials:

8x8 card blank
12x12 GCD Studios Backing Paper (Double Sided)
Pink Card
White Card
Pink Adhesive Gems
Pink Organza Ribbon
Butterfly Stencil
Pink Glitter Paste
Double Sided Sticky Tape
3D Foam
Printed Sentiment

I really hope you like it and would love to hear what you think, so please become a follower of my blog and leave a comment too.

It's now time to hop on over to Sylvia's Blog and see what they've made with a friendship theme.  Something fantastic I bet!

Thank you so much for popping over to see my creation.

Hope to see you again soon.
