EAD Designs Blog Hop!!


Hi everyone!!! Boy, am I excited for today!!! It seems like forever since the EAD Design Team was announced! I have been anxiously awaiting my first "duty" as a member of the great team!! While I have been patiently waiting, I've been passing the time playing with all my EAD goodies! I can't wait to share all my projects with you!! :) 

If you are here from Amy's blog then you are in the right spot! If you're just stopping in to check on my blog, make sure to start back at the beginning so you can get in on ALL the EAD inspiration!! PLUS - if you leave a comment on each stop in the hop, you will be entered to win some EAD goodies!!! 

My card today was inspired by my younger cousin who recently lost her beloved pet. :( 


I wanted to make a CUTE sympathy card that makes a person want to smile, even though they're feeling so down. I think this card would do the trick, don't you?? I love the 2Cute Ink Stickerz... and I think I love coloring them even more! :) I used my Sharpie permanent markers and gold stickles to add some color to my Stickerz. The sentiment is from the Sympathy stamp set by Pink By Design. 


I used some pop dots to add dimension to my card. I added twice the amount under my banner to make it really stand out. The scalloped edge along the side is a piece of white ribbon that I cut in half down the middle. I glued each half to each side of the blue layer. I love how it turned out... 

The BEST thing about these Stcikerz, is that they are repositionable!! I seriously moved these stickers three times before I found them a home I was happy with!! Love that!! 

In case you get lost, here is a list of all the stops in this hop!
