More Blog Hopping Fun! 100 Proof Press & Hydrangea Hippo....

(SPOILER ALERT - Ma, if you don't want to see your card for Mother's Day, you better not poke around on this post)

I'm really having fun getting back in my craft room.  When there's a blog hop to do, you have to craft it up!  So this is the 100 Proof Press and Hydrangea Hippo Hop - it's even fun to say, right?  You should have just been over at Irit's blog, and from here you will visit Holly (if you need a complete list of the hop you can find that here).  And 100 Proof Press and Hydrangea Hippo are both offering prizes, so  be sure you visit the sponsor's blogs as well.

We got a bag of goodies from Hydrangea Hippo- this place if full of paper kits, tutorials, and other fun paper crafting supplies (I had to get me some vintage ballerinas).  I embellished a burlap bag, a muslin bag, and made a card for the hop.

 here's a card for my mom, and a matching gift bag

(stamps used:  spring bouquet &  honeycomb
flower & lace are from HH)
(again the spring bouquet and honeycomb:  buttons,  lace, bag, and twine are from HH)

My creativity seems to flow more easily when I have someone in mind while I'm working on a project.  My sister just celebrated her birthday and I was able to incorporate my gift ideas with the hop!  She makes cards with a typewriter and just started selling them at craft shows, and I thought she could use a vendor's/crafter's apron, and the muslin gift bag turned out to be the perfect wrapping for her apron.
Happy Birthday Gift Bag with ATC sewn on


(again I used that honeycomb as a background, typewriter, & happy birthday stamp
the bag, ribbon, glitter, flower, leaves, and trim are from HH)
Here's the bag with the apron packaged and ready to go!
Custom Apron for my crafty little sister - although this photo doesn't show it, I did use a little bit of lace along the top seam from the Hydrangea Hippo Goodie Bag

Sew, thanks for stopping by my little lilly pad on the hop, and I hope you're enjoying the other stops as well.  Next stop is at Holly's blog.  And don't forget to leave a trail of you comments along the way.  Happy Hopping!
