DL.Art's Blog-a-versary Blog Hop

Welcome to DIANA L.'s  DL.ART  1 year blog-a-versary blog hop.  Including me there are 12 stops you will be making.  On these stops, you will find four people with a word; that will give you the clues, for the ingredients you will need, to complete your project.  Each designer will have a project that will inspire you and also have some clues as to what the ingredients are. You will have until Jan 6, 2012 @ 11:59 to link you project at
DL.ART's blog. Once you have linked your project, you will have a chance to win the Provo Craft Cricut  "Sweet Tooth Box cartridge" at DL.ART's Blog.

I want to say Congratulations to Diana for all she has accomplished in just one year on her blog. She has so many followers, participates in many challenges, leaves wonderful comments, & she is so generous with so many giveaways. She has truly become a blogging friend. This summer she made some beautiful gratitude journals to giveaway. She was so generous that she made more journals so that everyone who left a comment could get one. We all can learn alot from Diana.

Now to my project...

Supplies & Instructions
Cricut Expression Machine
Cricut Cartridge: Cupcake
Cupcake cut at 3"
Stamp Set:
Cuttlebug Embossing Folders:
Seeing Spots and Swiss Dots
Edges Distressed with Dark Brown-Color Box Chalk Ink

And to make DL.Art's Blog-a-versary fun, I have a GIVEAWAY for you. Robyn at My Pink Stamper has donated a Love-alicious stamp set to giveaway. That will be perfect for any Valentine Cards you might make. Just leave me one comment on this post: include something you look forward to this year and also an email address.
