Hello and welcome to Michele's first blog hop in honor of her 1st year of blogging! You should have arrived from Elizabeth. If you found me first, please head to Michele's BLOG to start at the beginning!
I have participated in tons of hops and have seen so many cute ideas and new techniques so I decided to create one of my own! I consider it my diary. It's fun to look back at the projects I created a year ago and know now what I could have done differently to make it awesome! If you don't have a blog, now is a great time to start one! It's super easy and a great way to share your talent with friends, family and www friends you make along the way! Best of all...it's free!
I have an amazing "present" up for grabs ~ all you have to do is visit each of the blogs below, become a follower and leave a comment. A winner will be chosen on Wednesday 1/2/13!
Here is a complete blog list in case you get lost along the way!

Now on to my project!!
I made a sweet little card with my Cricut Imagine.
I found the image I wanted to use on Imagine More Cards. I sized the heart to 3 inches and put two of them on my mat. I opened a 5:7 ratio square on my mat and filled it with the purple dotted paper. It was also sized to 3 inches.
I printed and cut them out.
I intended on printing out a 5x7 rectangle, but soon realized the smaller rectangle would work just fine.
I cut a piece of white cardstock to 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches and folded it in half to make my card base.
I inked the edges of the hearts and rectangle with purple StazOn ink. I adhered one heart to the purple paper. I wrapped some pink twine around the purple paper overlapping the heart a bit and adhered the purple paper to the card front.
I added a button with a bow. Here is a simple card that shows how I feel about blogging - LOVE!
Thanks for stopping by!! Please hop over to my dear friend Ellen next!
