Young Crafters Unite Blog Hop!

Today is a special day for me as its my first time to be a part of Hop.....it's the very first Young Crafters Unite Blog Hop! The lovely Britta and the talented Marie have put together this great blog.

If you started from the beginning, you should be here from Jill Foster's Blog. If this is your first, be sure to begin at the first Marie's Blog- there are lots and lots of great designers PLUS there are prizes up for grabs! 

It was so difficult to think of what my favorite is!! I love Fun n cute- twisting and turning my images to create something new, I love CAS, I love inks, coloring....oh my! so many things, so finally with a friends help I narrowed down on coloring and Colors,then there are some of my favorite stamp companies too...I chose to make 2 cards using 2 of my favorite companies:
Hero Arts: Got me started with stamping. I made the distress resist background. Colored the flower using distress inks and lots of pearl mist all over.
The colors for this card are inspired by Vicky's Card here. So I am submitting it for the Lily Pad Inspiration Challenge#3


Supplies: Stamps Hero Arts(CG134, S5507), Ranger distress inks, White embossing powder, Flower, Twine
Lawn Fawn: My new favorite, love their cute style. The stamps are perfect for coloring and paperpiecing. I made the background using another favorite Penny black stamp of mine. The focal image is Lawn Fawn colored using Copics and to finish some handstitching, handmade flower and that needle with twine. Love these small detail images in Lawn Fawn sets.
The 2nd. challenge I am playing at is to use Doilie and color from Polkadot Door design


Supplies: Lawn Fawn(Sew Lovely), Penny Black (Paisley Background), Ranger distress inks, Bling, Twine
Now what makes me a young crafter?? Again I could give so many reasons...well I am fairly young...while coloring I become and behave like a child, who would like to try everything...lol. When I get new post containing a card from my crafty friend or a prize from my win or something I had ordered, my kids would ask me: "Mama, why do you have that baby smile?" or "Why are you jumping?":))
Also, I am new to the stamping and blogging World (a year old)...so there you go, another reason for feeling young.
I also want to share some of my most favorite cards (most difficult task indeed)
Sweet Birthday using Hero Arts stamps
Sew Lovely using Lawn Fawn 
Thanks using Hero Arts
Oh What Fun using Hero Arts and my own drawings. Yes!! I love to draw too.

Now hop over to the talented Linsey's Blog.


Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Hope you had fun. Please leave a comment letting me know you were here and remember to comment on every post of the Hop for the chance of winning some great prizes ( $20 from Simon Says Stamp, their choice of stamp set from Paper Smooches, or their choice of stamp set from Lawn Fawn)
