Thankful Thursday Valentine Hop

Goodmorning Everyone!  Welcome to the Thankful Thursday Valentine Blog Hop hosted by Jenny at Crazy about Cricut!  This year, Jenny is changing things up!  Thankful Thursdays are now going to be a monthly blog hop.  They will be on the last Thursday of every month and there will be a link for people to link their projects up at the end.  This month our theme is Valentines Day!  Thankful Thursday is still about crafting with your kiddos and/or loved ones so lets see those Valentines Day Projects!

You should have arrived from Leah's blog at Leah's Card Designs!  If you are just stopping by to visit today and want to hop along, please go to Crazy about Cricut and start from the beginning!  Time has not been on our side lately, so I was thankful for the opportunity to craft with my kiddos this week!  Here is what we came up with!

Isn't he cute?!?!  We mixed some stamp sets to get our adorable sentiment!  "Valentine" comes from My Craft Spot's Build a Valentine Set and "Whooooooo loves you?" comes from My Pink Stamper. 

We started out with the Stampin' Up! Top Note Die and cut it in half. 

Then we got busy with some punches (my girl's love punching paper)!!

The flower works perfect for the beak and feet!

Again, the top not die needs to be cut in half. 

Face Layout....

Body Layout....

The wings are made by hand cutting them out of an extra body piece.
 
Oldest E received some dimensionals for Christmas, so she is all about popping everything up!  After we got this all done, she decided she wants the owls for her Birthday invitations instead...haha!  Kids...we'll see what happens with them! 


So, who wants some Blog Candy? 
 All commenters at Crazy about Cricut will be entered for the prize, but everybody who links up a project will get 2 additional entries. So by hopping/commenting and linking a project, you will have 3 times the chances to win the Space Party Cartridge...WooHoo!!


Thanks for stopping by today!  Your next stop in this Valentine Hop is my very talented friend

Here is the line-up in case you lose your way!

Hi Amber (and girls),

Great job to you all! I don't have the Top Note die, but I bet I can find a similar cut on a Cricut cart! :)

Your Owl is wonderful. I love your colors and anytime you can craft with the kiddos is a good day.

Big hugs, Cheryl @ CardsbyCG.blogspot.com
