Welcome to Felicity's Be A Blessing Blog Hop!!

Welcome to Felicity's Be A Blessing Blog Hop!!

Today we are celebrating a very special little girl's first birthday. She has had a difficult fight this past year and we felt what better way to celebrate her life than have a blog hop!
Felicity has touched many lives even though she is not even one yet. Every day she makes therapists, doctors, and even her family smile.
The purpose of this hop is to be a blessing. So the way to win our blog candy will be for you to be a blessing to someone around you. Then photograph how you have been a blessing with either a craft project or taking a meal to someone, etc. Share it with us and that gives you an extra entry besides leaving comments on all the hop stops.

If you arrived from  Janis then you are in the right place. If not please go back to the beginning at Shawnee's blog and make sure you don't miss all the amazing ways my friends have chosen to bless others.

Blog candy for this hop is one paper pack and April Showers Cricut Cartridge.

There are two ways to earn blog candy
1. Leave a comment on each blog
2. Come back and post how you blessed someone else with a link.
3. Tweet/Facebook about the blog hop

Here is the line up in case you get lost:

Here's what I made for today's blog hop using Cardz TV Stamps
For this card I used Cardz Tv "You're the Man" Stamp Set. I also used the Cricut Cartridge Animal Antics for all the cuts.
Card Base cut at 5 1/4" page 56
Cloud Background cut at 5" all layers page 57
Lion in Plane cut at 3 1/4" all layers page 39
I used Cardz Tv Stamp set "You're the Man"
To get the silver color I used a sharpie paint pen and colored it. Which I am now silver because the tip broke and I ended up using my fingers to spread the paint over the paper.

What's a blog hop without some blog candy! Mary will be giving 2 sets of Cardz TV Stamps for her blog candy, so if you’re a follower of Cardz TV, just leave  a comment on her blog! Mary will use to pick a winner, and will announce the WINNER on Monday!
