Disney Pixar Blog Hop - Day Two

Hello my friends I'm so glad you dropped by for Day Two of the Disney Pixar Blog Hop. I absolutley love that Shawn invited me back again as a stop for this Marvelous Magical Hop. We always have so many creative and talented ladies in our fabulous hops and I just love being a part of the fun.

If you came from Jenny's Crazy about Cricut blog then you are in the right place. If you happened to stop by my blog and would like to start at the beginning go to Shawn's Crafty Chic's blog.

I usually have a great project to share at these hops but I've been so busy with our AF walks and event this month that I just did not have the time, so I will be sure to have something wonderful lined up for the next hop.

For my project today, I made a card for my Nephew's birthday in June. Kristal Andrew's has the perfect stamp set called Of Mice and Lil Men. Kristal is the last stop of the hop so be sure to look around Getting Cricky for examples of projects using her wonderful stamps.

I created my card around Kristal's sentiment, "Just a wee wish". I thought it was perfect for a birthday card and who better to deliver that wee message than Jiminy Cricket. I love how this turned out and I can't wait to send it to my Nephew.

What I used:
It's hard to see but I used different textured cardstock from my scrap paper stash. I'm totally into using up my scraps this year.
Disney Classics cart - Jiminy cut at 5"
Mickey and Friends cart - Star cut at 1 1/2"
K Andrews Stamp set - Of Mice and Lil Men
Staples - green
Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles - I love this die
Cuttlebug Argyle embossing folder
Tim Holtz walnut stain distressing ink
Gelly Roll white ink pen and zig black ink pen used for details on card
Foam tape to pop the tag and Jiminy
Sewing machine - orange thread used to sew the frame around the card
Twine from My Craft Spot
EK Success 1/2" circle used to create the ticket tag
Eyelet Outlet - watch brad

Hold on to your ears because I have a Disney Cart to give away to one lucky winner!!!!
