Crafty Hos Blog Hop

The Crafty Hos are going out with a bang!  Be sure to go over to the challenge blog and read all about it!  We are a group of stamping friends who started this challenge blog about a year ago.  Now we have all become so busy that it seems it has run its course.  Please help us celebrate the end of a great run by hopping along with us!  Hopefully you began at the challenge blog.  If not, go back and start.  If you are on course, you arrived here from Joy's blog.  I know that she created something fantastic for you--because she ALWAYS does!  For my card I used Papertrey cardstocks, a scrap of Graphics 45 Alice in Wonderland paper, Papertrey's Tea for Two stamp set and sentiment.  I punched out the sentiment with a SU oval punch, and added a little bling.  I twisted some ribbon to resemble tea coming out of the teapot.  My friend, Yoorah, gave me the inspiration for this card!

From here, you should hop on over to Jackie's blog.  She, too, should have something great to share with you.

To all of the Crafty Hos--I love each and every one of you, and hope we continue with the friendships that we have developed.  It's been a great, fun time!


  1. What a bummer the Ho's are no more!!
    The DT is SO talented and it's one of my favorite "follows", just for inspiration, even when I didn't enter the challenges! (and I did enter a few times, but never won...)

    I love the design of your card and the ribbon-steam... Very nice last hurrah!


  2. So sad that the Crafty Ho blog will be no more. I am a late bloomer and as life is slowing down for me things are speeding up for others and well I'm just sad...

    I am, however, excited about this card. I LOVE some tea and it is a beautiful card. Love the use of the ribbon.

    Thanks for sharing in the final hurrah!
