Candace's Birthday Blog Hop


Hello, How you Bean?! Welcome to Candace's Birthday Blog Hop!

Today we are celebrating our dear friend Candace's birthday!
This hop is sponsored by SVG Cutting Files and Jaded Blossom! Now if you are here from Barb then you're in the right place, if not then you may want to start in the beginning. If you get lost I have the entire line up below this post. Here is what I created...

I made this special card for Candace! She is a lover of Hello Kitty and Star Wars so I had Ann combine the 2 for a Princess Leia Hello Kitty.

I cut the card base using the SVG Cutting File Trapezoid Card Base and used the print and cut feature with my Cameo for the inside mat. I added the star image and then printed the sentiment in white. After it was all set, I removed the cut lines from the sentiment and printed and cut it out. 
I cut Hello Kitty Leia out and mounted her on pop dots and I added a ribbon and bow to the top of the card.
Hello Kitty Leia is a FREE file today only until 12 midnight PST Time tonight! Click here for this free file

I also did something for Candace that I haven't done in a LONG TIME! I crocheted her this Hello Kitty Cup Cozy for her coffee! I haven't crocheted in a couple of years and I think it turned out cute as can be!
