Quick Quotes NSD Blog Hop

We're excited to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day with our Quick Quotes friends and fans! What better way than to have a fun blog hop!!!  If you've hopped here from Barb's fabulous blog then you are well on your way and will continue to be treated to some wonderful eye candy from the DT members for our current blog challenge, fussy cutting.

 If you just happened to pop in on my blog, please join us...I guarantee you'll have a great time and gain a ton of inspiration.  Be sure to leave comments on each blog and make it all the way to the end of the hop for a chance to win some great RAKs from Quick Quotes!!!

Please visit the blog for full details how to play along with our challenge.

For the fussy cutting challenge, I decided to go off the page and create this little birdhouse.  If you've visited my blog before, you know I have a thing for birdhouses.  I kept this one sweet and simple with a burst of color using papers from Summer Samba.   I inked the roof of the house with Blue Hawaiian PowderPuff Chalking Ink and then cut flowers from Summer Samba 400 and layered them over the entire roof.  I covered the base of the birdhouse with Summer Samba 100 and added 2 Bag O' Chips butterflies which were heat embossed with WOW embossing glitter.


Here are a few detail shots





Now you are on your way to the talented Rhonda's blog.  Here is the hop sequence just in case you get lost along the way!


Now what's a Blog Hop without a fun prize?!!! Since we are celebrating National Scrapbooking Day (annnd 6,000 fans over on Facebook!) we are all set to give away a grab bag full of crafty Quick Quotes goodness! For sure it will contain some PowderPuff Chalk Inks as they are our featured product for May!

I like all things birdhouse. The fussy cutting of the flowers are wonderful. How many flowers & how much paper did you cut up? The Butterflies are a nice touch.
