Blog Hop Anyone

Happy Saturday everyone. I want to invite everyone along with my first blog hop. A bunch of us from over at Outta This Funk is participating on this blog hop. Come and join in on the fun and check out some of the most awesom creations that these ladies make. Believe me, you will be so inspired.
Here is my creation that I made for this hop. I made a card set and box for our lovely Aunt Rene for her 92nd birthday. I know it says Happy Mom Day on the lid, but I'm going to change that. I used the template (Valentine's Box) that I purchased from Becky Roberts over at Inking Idaho and converted it for my 5x7 cards. I wanted to use the bigger cards for Aunt Rene to make it easier for her. I also made the lid so it wasn't such a snug fit and easier for her to just lay it atop of the box.
I do have to say that I am so pround of myself though. I'm not much of a stamper, but I used all stamps on this project. Not to mention all cardstock. I colored them in with the different colors of Tim Holtz Distress inks for each card. The inside compartment I'm going to add a few stamps and some little candies.
Here's how it turned out..
Box and 6 cards
the inside with a little side compartment
I used worn lipstick ink
spiced marmalade ink
I used Archival Ink on this one instead. Aqua
dusty concord
fired brick
peeled paint
I also wanted to keep them on the simple side. But I really love how this turned out. And I just hope that she will too. The stamps I used are from Tim Holtz and Inkadinkado.
Now I'm sending you over to
We Would love to know that you stopped in, if you could leave a message that would be wonderful. Thank you so much for blog hopping with us today.
Hugs from a very sweet Charm City
