April E.A.D Blog Hop day!

wahoo! I am on my way to Chicago right now. Kara graduates from boot camp tomorrow morning and I am blessed that I am able to be with her and spend some precious time with my sweet baby girl this weekend. I have to soak it up because I am not sure when I will get to see her again. I never thought I would manage to get through this time... it has seriously dragged, however the past week or so has been easier. Maybe it's because I get to see her soon or maybe just because I have learned to live without her. Maybe it's a bit of both. She is still the first person I think about in the morning and the last prayer I say at night.

Onto the scrappy stuff... The theme for this months hop is lime and pink. For my first project I created this wall hanging of this adorable kitty cat vinyl piece for Skylar. It is prrr-fect for her because the girl is obsessed with cats... and tulle and green. lol The base is actually one of my Cropper Hopper index pieces that I have had sitting around. I added some dimension to the cat by placing him on some lime green pp and then cutting around him. I also used some pieces of pp to add details to one of the eyes, the nose and ears, even the tummy area. The word was also placed on the same lime green pp and then I carefully cut them out as well.
 pp: Pink Paislee, Heidi Swapp, SEI, Basic Grey and Bo Bunny.
vinyl rub on: E.A.D Designs
green rhinestones 
stickers: Doodlebug Designs

I also created a card for Kara. I used a word from the Sweet Sentiments Vinyl sheet. To give it some dimension I applied the letters to blocks of patterned paper and then placed the blocks randomly on the card.
