French Manor Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome, I'm so glad your here. Today and tomorrow I'm hosting the French Manor Blog Hop. I've recruited some very talented ladies from the Cricut Circle to showcase this cartridge. I've often heard that some members aren't sure if they like this cart or it's not like any other cart they use. So we're here to show you what this cart can do, and have some fun doing it. So come and follow along. There's even some blog candy here and there along the way.

 My brother-in-law is getting married next weekend so I chose to make a wedding card.


I used:
Silver Metallic  cardstock from The Paper Company for the card
Layered with Wedding silver and Gold Stripe from TCP Studio
The Medallion on pg.56 cut at  3.75
A 4" circle , tag and small flower cut from Cool Metallic Shimmer Highlight cardstockfrom The Paper Company
Half pearls and silver embossing powder.


Don't you just love blog candy, I know I do! If you win you'll receive a Stampin Up! classic stamp pad in Chocolate Chip, a TCP Studio Rustic Garden stamp set, rub-ons and jewels.
To enter:
1.  Just leave me a comment under this post.
2. Leave me some way to notify you if you win, email, blog address, Cricut MB name,
3. If you like what you see become a follower of my blog, but by no means required to win.
That's it. The give-a-way ends Sunday Aug, 29th at 11.59PM. I will notify the winner by Thursday evening and post on this blog.

Ready for more fun? Please take a look at these amazing creations. Next up
