You are on the Time To Shine Blog Hop which is in connection with the Time To Sine Crop which is currently going on over at the Card Swaps forum on the CardMaker site. There will be lots of challenges, games and prizes. Click HERE for details about the crop. You should have arrived here from Marlene's blog. If not then you will want to go back to the beginning with Brooke Smith and the CardMaker Blog and start over as you do not want to miss anything. The theme of the crop is Time To Shine, focusing on glittery and shimmery things. The blog hop theme goes along with that with the hostesses focusing on items that you would see on a time to shine day such as graduation, wedding etc. There is also a fun game going on for all the blog hoppers. So stick with me as I will be giving you the details for that in just a moment.
I chose to make a graduation card for my project. I have been seeing these adorable graduation cap cards all over Pinterest and of course I had to "pin" them. Besides some family and friends that are graduating this year, my son has quite a few friends that are graduating from college this year. He asked if I would make cards for him to give to his friends. I thought the graduation cap card would be perfect to make not only for his friends but also for the ones I needed too. Each one I have made has been made in the color of that person's graduation cap and tassel. Let me tell you, a lot of royal blue and black! Had one navy blue. The card I have pictured below is for one of my son's friends whose cap and gown is black with an off white tassel. Luckily the card is for a girl so I was able to bling it up a bit with some rhinestones and a shimmery tassel made with embroidery floss. All cardstock is by Bazzill and the sentiment is by Hero Arts.
Now it's time to hear about the fun game that goes along with this hop. Each stop of the hop the hostesses will be giving you a letter. So be sure to collect each one because when you get to the last stop you will be directed to the Card Swaps forum where you will get your final letter and some hints to help you unscramble the word(s) for a chance to win a prize. So without further ado...my letter is:
Don't forget to check out the crop if you haven't already. It goes from May 16 - 19th and you have till 11:59pm CST on May 22 to upload your projects for a chance to win a prize. It's loads of fun and I hope to see you at the crop.
