We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop! 

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop and if you plan on hopping from East Coast to the West Coast, you are in luck, because I'm the first stop. If you came from Corrina of Corrina's Crafts then you are in the right place! 

 I decided to try making a shakercard for my blog entry.  I started with the Hearts Thin Cuts to make the opening for the shaking.  I used the Dots Overlay from the All About the Gold Fundamentals Collection to enclose the opening in the Raspberry Cardstock(new color).  I really thought the Lagoon and White Cardstock paired well with the Raspberry and cut more hearts to create the finished card.  I used sequins in Gold, Pacifica and Lagoon shades to create the shake.  The sentiment is stamped in Lagoon Ink and is from the Happy Heart stamp set, and this stamp also comes in 2 other languages, French and Spanish.
