Christian Paper Crafts Sweet Summertime Blog Hop!

Thanks for visiting today!!  So pleased that we've been having some beautiful sunny days!  I even got a little sunburned while out weeding and watering the flowers!  All I can say is "it's about time!!"  Love waking up to a sunny day!  Today we are starting out Sweet Summertime blog hop and I invite you to play along or hop along and see the fun projects everyone is sharing today (and the next few days as more link up to participate!)  Be sure to start at the CPC Creative Blog and link up your card or project.  It's so fun to share ideas and the Creative blog has the pertinent information for all the hoppers!
Here is my first card "A Pinwheel Thanks"
Remember playing with pinwheels? I remember as a young girl going to the summer fair/carnival and seeing all the beautiful colored ones.
 This was really simple to do.  Here is a link to a step-by-step instructions to make your own pinwheel.  My pinwheel starts out as a 3"x3" square, the directions show 4"x4"
The designer paper (American Crafts - Happy Go Lucky line), button and Thickers Alphas (white fabric) are from the Taylored Expressions Key Ingredient Kit (May).

 My second card is a one that I thought would be a cheery encouragement to someone. (Summer flowers are so cheerful!)  Again I've used the Taylored Expressions Key Ingredient Kit (May) which include the American Crafts Designer Paper (Happy Go Lucky line), Bazzill card stock, buttons and gingham ribbon.  The Scripture I've used is from Our Daily Bread Design and is the Scripture Set 3.  I've used the Memento, rich cocoa color to stamp the verse.  Both cards are very clean and simple and I hope you enjoy them!  Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a delightful comment!  Please visit us at Christian Paper Crafts! 
Thanks again for stopping by and I look forward to visiting and being inspired by all the participants!!  Don't forget to check out the prizes at the Creative Blog!!
