Joy's Life Red, White, and Blue Blog Hop

Glad you could stop by the Crafty Kitten and join us for Joy's Life's Design Team's Red, White, and Blue Blog Hop!  With July just around the corner, we're featuring patriotic projects. 

If you came here from Stacey's blog, you're in the right place.  If you stumbled on this post, and want to start at the beginning do so at Joy's blog here.
I've used Doodlebug Designs paper and stickers to make four quickie cards for you.  If you find yourself in a pinch for time, grab yourself a page of stickers and you can have a set of cards ready in no time. 

This first card features a stamp from Joy's Pun In The Sun set.  It can be meant as an encouragement for someone you know entering the service. 

  This next card would be perfect for that special someone heading off to the Air Force.  I cut out the inside of the flag sticker and filled it with a saying from Joy's Pun In The Sun set.

This firecracker card, made with a stamp from Joy's My Hero set, could be given to your loved one who's deployed to let them know that despite the distance, you're a great team.

Want to say thank you to a hero in your life? This quick card embellished with a star shaped brad and stamp from My Hero would work.

I think Joy's stamps add a nice finishing touch to projects made with stickers.

*** Now how about some GREAT Blog Candy?? ***

I'm going to give away your choice of ANY Joy's Life stamp set!

Just leave me a comment on which card you like best and you'll be in the drawing for the stamp set.

You'll have until Sunday, July 6th to leave your comment.  It's that easy to win!

*** Now head over to Lori's blog.  She's very talented and has a great patriotic project for you! ***

Here's the blog hop order in case you get lost along the way.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a safe and fun 4th of July!

Joy's Life Beach Crab Summer Card

Hi, everyone!  It's been awhile but here I am with my first project for in a quite some time. 

 I'm still helping run Joy's Life's Design Team but it was a nice change to go in my room and do some crafting!

The first day of Summer just around the corner and we've been celebrating it this past week. 

When I saw this cute crab image in the Silhouette store, I knew I had to make a project with him!  

Here's a closeup of the stamp I used from Joy's Pun In The Sun set.  If you ink it up well, it will stamp great on Bazzill paper.

   The card is a standard 4.25x5.5" but I cut the paper vertically for a change.  I used a variety of textured papers on it.  To keep it from looking so plain, I used glitter and hand drawn stitching.

Well, that is all for me today!  I hope you all are having a great time and enjoying the summer! :)
