Mom's the Word Blog Hop!!!!

Happy Saturday!!

Hi everyone, welcome to Cardz TV Design Team "Mom's the Word" Blog Hop!!! If you stopped by to visit and would like to participate in the hop you may start with our amazing host Mary of Cardz TV. If you're coming from Talented Amanda then your in the right place. Through out this hop you will find tons of Mother's Day creations and hopefully they will inspire you to create something for that special someone in your life! You will also find giveaways through out the hop, first one starting with Mary, she will be giving away 2 sets of Cardz TV stamps winners choice!!! The hop will end on May 6 at Midnight!!!

Now onto my creation, A couple of weeks ago I won a selection of gifts bags from My Craft Spot and this is like the one I will be using today.

I decorated the bag using Freshly Picked cartridge. I am using Mary's "More Encouraging Thoughts" stamps for the sentiment!

I made it into a pull out card. The pull out card sentiment is from Mary's "Thankful for you" set of stamps.

I also found these magnetic note pads in Michael's dollar bin section.

 Decorated in coordinating colors to match the gift bag.

I hope you have enjoyed my creations, you will find your next inspiration from DT sister Shawnee.

I do have blog candy for you, just leave me a comment with a way for me to contact you. You don't have to be a follower, but if you like what you see please follow me!
