Heartfelt Creations March Alumni Blog Hop

Hello friends!  It's that time again when we are hosting the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop.  As always, you will have the chance to win a $25 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations.  All you have to do is comment on each blog that is participating in the hop.  Hop starts 8am EST on Tuesday March 31 and closes Friday April 3 at midnight.
Please note: The winner of the blog hop will have 72 hrs. to claim their prize, otherwise another name will be drawn.

Today I thought I'd try a bendi card (yes, that's spelled correctly).  

This is one of my favorite paper collections, it just feels like spring!  The design may look a little complicated but it comes together very quickly.

If you do a Google search you will find lots of tutorials and inspiration for this type of card.

Happy Birthday, Arabella

Today I'm sharing a card I made for a very special little lady.  Her parents invited us to her 8th birthday party but it was also to celebrate the finalization of her adoption.  The card is all sparkly!  With shiny paper, Stickles, and some Wink of Stella, it almost glows in the dark.

We were given 3x5 cards to personalize for her to add to her scrapbook.

The back of the card has one of my fave verses.

I created a pocket in the card to tuck it into.

And then, to finish it, I made an envelope.  I am so glad I invested in an envelope punch board, well worth it!
