Royal Wedding Blog Hop

Good morning!  Welcome to The Royal Wedding Blog Hop!!!!  Today is the special day for Prince William and his Princess, Kate, and we're celebrating right along with them with this wonderful blog hop.  Our theme, of course is weddings, fairy tales, and love.  Sounds good, right?  Well, I assure you that you haven't seen anything yet!  There are some truly amazing artists on this hop, and you're going to be thrilled with their creations.  So, let's get started, shall we?  If you arrived here from my sweet and talented friend Viv's blog, then you are hopping along in perfect order, but if you just happened along, you're going to really want to go back to the beginning, where Heidi kicks off this fabulous event on her Got Scraps Blog.  A BIG THANK YOU goes out to Heidi for organizing this hop!!!!!!!  There will be LOTS of inspiration, and maybe even some prizes along the way, so hurry and get your hop on!!!!  ;-)

Okay, so I have to admit that it took me a while to find any card making mojo at all.  I've been MIA for a few days, because my grandma is sick and in the hospital, and I haven't made a single card in over a week!!!   That hasn't happened in a long time, let me tell ya!  It feels great to be doing some crafty work.  For this card, I used one of The Scrapping Cottage's Cottage Cutz Frame 1 Die, cutting two.  One in black and one in white.   Since this is a royal event,I chose to use up some of this amazing bling from Peachy Keen Stamps to make a jeweled background.  A crown jewel background, if you will.   The sentiment comes from the Cottage Impressions Valentine's release.  I stamped the sentiment with Versamark, and heat embossed it with some black embossing powder.  Some strategically placed rhinestones, a couple of  stick pins, (These remind me of a scepter) and big organza bow, finish off this royal card.   Your next stop will be at the amazing , sweet and talented Janice's blog.  Below is a complete list of stops for this blog hop, should you happen to get lost along the way.

I do have a bit of blog candy to offer up for this special day.  One commenter from this post will receive the following:
Sizzix In Bloom stamp set set of (12)
1 pkg. (4) Heart Ribbon Slides
1 pkg. (3) 1 Yd. Spools Marcella Ribbon
1 pkg. (8) Black & White Pebble Clips by Making Memories
1 K&Co. Tiara/Love Light Up Sticker set (This is so cool!)
1 K&Co. Frippery Pendant Necklace kit to personalize your own jewelery to commemorate
this special day.  This kit is very appropriately called "Katie".

Just leave a comment on this post, and I'll draw a winning number on Sunday morning.  Be sure to leave me your contact information, so that I can get in touch with you when you win!!!

Thanks so much for hopping along with us today.  May God bless and keep you today and always, AND  bless you with lots of happy stamping!!!
