It's a Party Blog Hop!!!


Woo hoo!  Hello and welcome to the Joy's Life DT It's a Party Blog Hop!  If you just hopped here from the very talented Patty, you're in the right place!  :)

As most of you know, I love to make cards...  Well, this blog hop is quite the challenge for cardmakers like me!  :)  I couldn't come up with an idea for the longest time, and then suddenly it hit me...  I love animals, so I decided to make a "forest friends" themed party...  This could be for someone's birthday, or a baby shower, etc... 

All of the sentiments are from the Joy's Life Wild Life Puns Stamp Set!  Super cute!

I made these by using my 2" and 1.5" circle punches.  The owl image is from Hero Arts, and the fox image is from Hampton Arts.  I just attached them to a toothpick and VOILA you have the world's easiest cupcake toppers!

These pillow boxes are cut from the Wedding cartridge at 4.65".  Both animals were cut from Create a Critter: deer cut at 2.29", squirrel cut at 1.94". 

This place card holder is just a folded piece of cardstock, stamped with a Joy's Life stamp, and then I cut the owl from Create a Critter at 1.71".  My handwriting is not the best, but you get the idea... :)

***NOW!  Would it really be a party without a giveaway?!?!?!  Well...  Joy is so generous and she is donating a stamp set to one lucky follower!  You will get to choose which stamp set you want out of all of Joy's amazing stamps!!!!  :)  For a chance to win, become a follower of my blog and leave me a comment on this post...  Yahoo!!!  :)

Okay, you're next stop on the hop is the talented Jennie!  Thanks for stopping by!!!

Here's the order if you need it:
