Friendship Blog Hop

Hey everyone, Nikki here.  Happy Saturday!  I hope everyone enjoyed their week.  Welcome to my blog and the Friendship Blog Hop! If you've come from visiting Alina at Addicted to Scrapbooking, you're in the right place. If you were just looking at my blog and want to play along with our blog hopping fun, you can go to the beginning to Jennifer at Crafty Card Gallery.  This blog hop is all about friendship; cards that you would love to send to or receive from a friend - congratulations, good luck, thanks for being a friend, etc.  Sometimes it's nice to just send a card to a friend for no particular reason or to celebrate something with them.

This hop was the perfect opportunity for me to make and send out cards to some of my friends that I don't get to see very often.  For todays' card, I decided to showcase the one I made for my best friend who lives in Philadelphia.  Although 40 minutes away, it's very hard to see her so I send her a card once a month and it really makes her day when it arrives.  Her favorite colors are green and purple.  I thought it turned out cute.  Enjoy!!
Recipe for Card:
Create A Critter cricut cartridge
Boarder punch is EK Success
Spellbinders Nestabilities-Small Oval and Small Scallop Oval
Sentiment is My Pink Stamper Punny-licious
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Ribbon and paper came from my stash

Now for the blog candy.....
If most of you don't know, I have been sick for a bit now and I really haven't been out to shop.  Thankfully my darling fiance has done most of my office, shopping, etc..  Blog candy is $20 gift card to your choice of AC Moore, Michaels or Joanns.  To win, leave a comment and a way for me to reach you.

I will also be giving out gift cards for tomorrow and Monday as well since the hop goes until Monday.  I will have a different card for each day.

I am the last stop on this amazing hop and I hope you have been inspired by all the card creations.  Thank you so much for hopping along and/or stopping by my blog.  I also want to thank Jennifer at Craft Card Gallery for hosting.

Have a great rest of the weekend and be sure to check back tomorrow and Monday for my other card creations and more chances to win blog candy.  Be sure to check out GAB Challenge Blog.  A different challenge every Saturday.
