My Pink Stamper Blog Hop--February.....

Two Posts today:
If you are looking for my Donna Downey project it is HERE.

Welcome to the February My Pink Stamper Blog Hop! You have made it to the end of the hop!! If you are on the right track you would have arrived from my super talented friend Tracy's  Blog. If you are just visiting no worries, you can just follow the list below and start back at the beginning.

Here is this months challenge......

Use the color red, a circle, a pink ribbon and MORE THAN ONE My Pink Stamper stamp.

After you are done reading my post, please make sure you go back to My Pink Stamper and play along in the challenge with us!

My Gypsy is sadly in for repair from over use, LOL! It has been so long since I just made a project with my Cricut alone I sort of freaked out! Yes, I know I could have used Cricut Craft Room....but I challenged myself :)

I hand cut a felt heart and did the blanket stitch around the edges.
The rest, pretty easy :) I cut a rosette from the Ribbons and Rosettes Cricut Cartridge. To make the rosette since I didn't have my Gypsy to weld.....I cut 4 pieces at 1" and glued them together. I also used a border on Ribbons and Rosettes using Fit the Length (oh....the good old days) for the bottom of the card.
I used the My Pink Stamper Itty Bitty-licious (you can see it HERE) and (you can order it HERE). I used 4 different sayings from the set. YAY! More than one! You can also see that I used my pink ribbon, the color red and a circle--2 if you count the rosette. Challenge Complete!

Before you leave.....want to win a My Pink Stamper Set of your very own???
My Pink Stamper More Punny-licious
