FCD BLOG HOP: A TISKET A TASKET...

Hello Friends! Welcome and thank you for coming by! This month the FIRECRACKER DESIGNS BY PAMELA have a Book Cover Inspiration themed Blog Hop for you to check out

The official start time of this Hop is Friday, at 8:00 AM(EST). If you arrived early, please be patient as all the links may not be live yet.

As I mentioned above, todays BLOG HOP has an  Book Cover Inspiration theme... I am an avid reader but none of the book covers I had, were very inspirational so I headed over to Barnes and Noble and looked for a fun book cover!

I chose this one because I thought it was so pretty and sweet...











Here is some information about my project.... I love this little basket!!! It is a die cut from Creative Cuts and More called Box with a Basket... put together with some red tacky tape - stamped with the GORGEOUS STAMP from FIRECRACKER DESIGNS BY PAMELA called FORGIVE ME


I stamped four of these flowers in Memento Black Ink and colored them with my Copics! Once that was done, I cut them out and using the Technique Junkie Newsletter August/ September 2010 edition - Soft and Sparkly, I added a little dimension and texture!


The baskets make FAST AND FUN projects! These make great gifts or special things to put treats in for kids parties, Woman themed parties such as Mother's Day Banquets, Bridal Showers, Tea Parties, thank you gifts for speakers or special friends. Throw in some tea bags, cocoa bags, small bags of candy with a note and you are ready to go with your gift!


Here are a few more details...

This is a “circular blog hop” where the only beginning is wherever you start!! You will know you are at the end of your blog hop when you’ve come back to the blog you’ve started from!(It’s not a huge circle…so it should be easy to remember where you started.)
BLOG CANDY!! One winner will be chosen from a mystery blog hostess…so you’ll want to leave a comment on EVERY blog so you don’t miss out! The winner will be chosen from a mystery blog hostess that we don’t even know who it will be until the hop is over…so that’s why you’ll want to leave a comment on EVERY blog, so you don’t miss out!
**To find out if you’ve won… you will be contacted by Pamela via e-mail (so be sure to leave it with your comment.) and you can also find out on Pamela’s blog after the blog hop ends on Mon, at 8:00 PM (EST).**






Now, to continue the circle, you will need to hop on over to the talented Lynn Steven's Blog and keep going until you’ve come back to where you’ve started! Thanks so much for playing along with us and we hope you have a great time!

Cute basket! I love the flowers and colors.


I have to give you a call. I'm sorry. Things have been so hectic with work that when I have a free moment I either try to keep up on DT stuff or just relax. I would love to schedule something in September. I hope that will work for you. I'll contact you either via email or phone. :)

Oh Chris, I love your basket! It's so cute and is perfect for your inspiration piece!

I might have to go take a look at this book. I love children's books written for the little girly girls. I have all of the Fancy Nancy books and have yet to read one to a child!!! (I have given them as gifts to little girls though.)
