CardzTV Blog Hop "You're the Man!" Day 2 (Sunday Team)

We're having a Blog Hop here at CardzTV. Welcome!!! This is Day 2 and this is the Sunday Team. Yesterday the Saturday Team showed off their wonderful projects.
Now if you have come from Barbara's blog, then you are in the right place. The hop is showing off one of Mary's newest stamp sets..."You're the Man!" This set has so many great and manly sentiments...and a couple mustaches! lol Check out all of Mary's stamp sets here

I made a card with an Action Wobble:

Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: White, Tan, Teal, Black and Two Different Patterned Papers
Cricut Cartridge Accent Essentials Accent 4, page 75 (Base)
Cricut Cartridge Everyday Paper Dolls Head, page 28 (Base Shift); Farmer (Hat), page 68 (Headwear Shift)
Cricut Design Studio
CardzTV with Mary Clear Stamps You're The Man!, "You're the MAN!"; Large Mustache
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Diamond Plate
Two Wiggle Eyes
Black Pigment Ink
Action Wobble
Small Circle Punch
Mounting Tape

Unfortunately, my camera will not let me get a picture of the Action Wobble in action. The eyes wiggle when it shakes back and forth also. I single mounted the head, the mustache and the sentiment. Now with Father's Day just around the corner, this would make a great card or it could be used for a birthday. I thought it turned out cute. Hope you do also...

Now don't forget that Mary always has some Blog Candy...2 sets of stamps...just make sure you leave a comment over there at CardzTV. Winners will be announced on Monday.

I also have some blog candy...woo hoo! Don't you just love it?

I have a 6" x 6" Designer Paper Pad and a 3 piece set of Darice Embossing Borders.
Please leave a comment AND a way to contact you on THIS post by Monday, April 29th Midnight EST. I will announce the winner on Tuesday or Wednesday. I would also appreciate it if you would become a follower. 

 Your next and last stop on the hop is Melissa. However, if you want to start from the beginning for Day 2, here is the full line-up:

Thanks for stopping by.

Digi Haven Challenge "Use Buttons"

Buttons, buttons, who's got the button? We do at Dig Haven this week. That's the use buttons. We have another wonderful sponsor this week also...Dilly Beans. They will be giving the winner of the challenge 3 images...I just think that is so generous. Isn't it? Now the challenge will only last 2 weeks, so make sure you join us for the fun.

I actually made 2 different cards using the same image:

Here they are close up:

Finished Cards: 4/14" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: White, Light Teal, Light Wine and 2 Different Patterned Papers
Dilly Beans Stamp 364 Crinkles Hearts Framed
Spectrum Noir Markers

Various Buttons
Mounting Tape

I thought this little guy was so cute. (Don't you think so too?) The cards can be used for a variety of reasons...birthday, thank you, congratulations, thinking of you...whatever. I like how different each card is even though it has the same image. (Both framed images are single case you can't tell in the photo).

Well, get busy and play a long. We would love to see what you come up with...using buttons. And if you get a chance, stop by our sponsor and check out all the other great images there here.

Thanks for dropping by and please leave a comment. I love reading them.

Hi everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful Easter/Passover. We had a very nice day. The weather did not cooperate in the afternoon, so we couldn't have our afternoon egg hunt. My cousins were disappointed. Hopefully next year. However, the Easter bunny did hide some eggs in the morning for Gianna:

and he even left footprints in my house when he hid Gianna's basket:

Here she is all dressed up with her basket (and (Cobi):
