I'm so sad that the Sweet Shop Blog Hop has come to an end.

Wow, what a weekend.  Thanks to everyone who stopped by and left such lovely comments.  You guys are "Awesome"!  This was my very first Blog Hop and I loved every bit of it.  My design sisters at Cooking with Cricut created some lovely cards and projects.  I'm so lucky to be part of a group of such talented ladies.  I don't have a winner yet for both Melin's adorable Bunny cut file and my explosion box but I will tomorrow.

Did the Groundhog predict 6 more weeks of Winter?

February’s famous forecasting rodent, Punxsutawney Phil, didn’t see his shadow at Gobbler’s Knob in Pennsylvania, a supposed sign that warmer weather is not far away!!!!  Yay!! I know, I know I'm in Arizona but it is still colder than ever here. My heart really goes out to my Blog friends that live where the weather is just unbearable.
This week over at Cooking with Cricut our Challenge Theme -Ground Hog Day Salute...Any project with a "Shadow" either title is shadowed or a die-cut has a shadow, etc.   This is my first time using Melin's face turtorial  give it a try they are super cute! 

Ok, so here's my card!  I used the following carts:  Simply Charmed, Everyday Paper dolls, Walk in my Garden and Create a Critter.   This is also my first easel card. But I think I need more practice. Thanks for stopping by! One last thing don't forget to come by Feb. 12 & 13 for our SWEET SHOP BLOG HOP!
