 Hello Crafty Folks,
Welcome to Crafting By Designs Patriotic(Colors of our Flag) Blog Hop!  This year we are celebrating our
1 year birthday with a mini-blog hop and I sure am happy you stopped by.

I have a couple of projects to share, for my first creation I was thinking of doing something yummy and I was actually inspired by the cupcakes my son made for dessert on the 4th of July.  They were made from scratch and extremely yummy! I was inspired to make this special Red,White & Blue treat.  I used a papermache cupcake box and decorated it with designer papers, lace & buttons all of which are my favorite things.  I topped it of with a cutesy banner stick pin and flower.

 Next I created this Red, White & Blue beauty basically from scraps, but extra effort went into this card as I pulled out the old sewing machine and did some stitching.  I used scraps of lace and ribbon, a button and the "Hope" ticket came from a Tim Holtz booklet.

I am so grateful that you stopped by and you're next stop will be Julia at Paper and Scraps Creations.  Just in case you might have gotten off track I've listed the line up of our blog hop to help you follow along.  Once you're done blog hopping why don't you come and join us over at Crafting by Designs and join in the FUN!

Happy Hopping :0)
