Inspired by Cristina Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to CRISTINA's Blogaversary Blog Hop!!!

Cristina is celebrating her one year blog anniversary this week, and in honor of her we are having this blog hop!!! The theme of the hop is to be inspired by Cristina and to make a project that was inspired from one she did on her blog during the past year. Well it was not hard to find inspiration since she is such a great crafter and explores many types of paper crafting.

You should be arriving from the very talented Amanda. If not that is okay, you can click to Cristina's blog to start from the beginning.

For my project I chose to do a Wiper Card which Cristina recently did a video tutorial on. To see that jut visit her blog and watch her you tube video. She makes it super easy. I chose to make my card for my Grandmother's 85th Birthday Card. She enjoys my cards very much and she doesn't need a lot of writing because she can't see very well for reading anymore. So this was the perfect card.

As you can see I used a lot of butterflies. I used the punch around the page set from Martha Stewart and then my other butterfly punches too. This card is fairly simple. The pop up has I Love You, Grandma and then I signed my name there. I thought that was so cute how it popped up with her special greeting. I used all Scrappy Moms Stamps for the sentiments. I am happy with this card, it was for a special event in my life, and in honor of a special bloggy friend.

For your next stop you will be visiting Corri and I am sure she has a great one in store for you so you won't want to miss it.

Don't forget to go visit Cristina and leave her some special comment love. She has done so much for the crafting community with her videos and projects and friendly personality plus she is really sick right now and I know the comments would put a smile on her face.

Thank you for joining me today. And thank you so much to Cristina for inviting me to share in her special day!
