Made Especially For You's 2 Year Blogoversary Blog Hop!

Welcome to Made Especially For You's 2 Year Blogoversary Blog Hop!


If you've come from Eileen's blog, The Scrapping Actuary, you're in the right place! If you just came across the hop, please start at the beginning over at Made Especially For You.

When Ashley asked me to be part of her 2 Year Blogoversary Hop I was honored. I've known Ashley for about a year. She allowed me to be part of the Made Especially For You Design Team. She truly is a genuinely nice and caring person... don't forget insanely talented :) 

Instead of having a theme for the hop, Ashley put together a bingo board full of some of her favorite crafty things and we were to choose at least 3 of them and create a project.



 I chose crinkle ribbon, twine, and pearls and made a card. :)
Who says we can't use doilies and pearls for manly cards? Nooot me. 

I created the sentiment from My Creative Time's You're My Best Buddy stamp set. The sentiment mat is from My Creative Time's Just Simply Live. For the pearls, I used Liquid Pearls in Bisque and Platinum Pearl

The twine is Chocolate Truffle from Trendy Twine. The crinkle ribbon is Antique White from the Pink & White Bundle from 3 Girl Jam.
 I used Amy Tangerine thickers to spell out "dad". 
The chocolate pattern paper is from Echo Park Paper. 


To coordinate with our bingo board, we have sponsors providing prizes to match each item listed on the board! 

3 Copic Markers of Winner's Choice!

AND A SECOND WINNER WILL RECEIVE...

Doodlebug Designs Polka Dot Paper Pack!
(Assorted colors - 4 6x6 sheets of each color)
