Onto my project! The theme for both the card crop and blog hop is "Winter Warm Up". When I think of warming up I think of having one of my favorite hot drinks! So for my project I made coffee cup cards. I have been seeing coffee cup cards on the internet that hold a gift card to a favorite coffee shop and thought they were cute. Then I saw where someone had made 3 x 3 cards in the shape of a coffee cup and just couldn't resist making some of my own. I thought they would be perfect to have on hand to add to little gifts that I like to give to the host of swaps that I like to join. Here's my card:
I used some basic supplies...cardstock, a crimper, ink and adhesive to make the little card. Took just minutes! What's that you say? Doesn't look like a 3x3 size? Well your right. I came out of the shower one day to find my son sitting in my craft room with a big smile on his face. He had added steam to all my coffee cups! He was so proud that I didn't have the heart to tell him that they would no longer fit in a 3x3 envelope. I think they are cute too with the steam so I left them and they will still look cute attached to a hostess gift with a little note inside. If you would like to see where I got my inspiration to make these and for directions...click HERE.
Now onto the game details for the hoppers. You will be unscrambling a word once you collect a letter at each blog you visit. The hostesses can play along, because they don't know any of the letters but their own. Once you collect ALL the letters, the last hostess in the blog hop will direct you to the thread in the forum where you can find all the details you need to enter the drawing. All hoppers collecting all the letters, unscrambling the word or phrase, entering the game by following the directions in the forum, and leaving feedback on EVERY blog they visit WILL be entered in to a random drawing held on February 15, 2012. ONE lucky hopper will have their name drawn and will win a prize!! Fun, right?? So, make sure you visit every blog and find the letters. Your only hints are... it's a phrase and it's a way papercrafters warm up.
OK... You arrived here from Lora's blog, I hope. If not, go back and check out her blog for her awesome creation and collect your letter. Then collect my letter and hop on, my friend.
