Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge -- All About the Mouse!! :)

Good Sunday morning, my Love To Crop friends!!  :)  I am happy to report that, once again, we are having a BEAUTIFUL Sunday here in Western Pennsylvania!!  WOWZERS...  The sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, and the birds are singing!!  The forecast is calling for another 80+ degree day...  I am just LOVING the HEAT!!  :)  No, really...  I should move to Florida!!  ;)

Know what else I'm loving???  The new Simply Sunday Challenge over at Getting Cricky!!  This Sunday's challenge is all about my favorite mouse and friends...  YAY!!  :)  I was LUCKY enough to be involved with the Disney Pixar Blog Hop (presented by my friend and DT Sister, Shawn) this weekend...  TWO days of super-fun and CREATIVE projects!!  Did you miss the hop yesterday???  You can see my post from yesterday HERE...  OR... you can check out ALL of the Disney Pixar Blog Hop Stops by clicking on the links at the bottom of this post (I've included both days of links to make it easy for you to see them all!!)...  But first...
For my project I decided to make a set of 3"x3" Happy Cards!!  I've been hoarding these adorable Disney stickers in my stash for some time...  But a few months ago, I made a commitment to use more of my scrapbooking goodies so that they could be enjoyed in completed projects rather than hanging on to them for future use!!  These finished cards certainly made me happier than having those stickers tucked away!!  :)  Each of these little gift cards features one of the MANY "perfect-for-Disney" sentiments found on the "Of Mice & Lil Men" Stamp Art Set from K Andrew Designs...
Each of the cards features a 3"x3" white cardstock base with rounded corners...
I also used the "Polka Dots" Cuttlebug embossing folder for all of the background layers...
Purple grosgrain ribbon accented these pink-n-purple "girlie" cards featuring Minnie and Daisy perfectly!!  :)
Shiny, sparkly extras were added with some Kaiser Craft gems and a Stardust Gelly Roll pen...
For the Goofy and Donald cards, I used some bright yellow, chartreuse, and turquoise cardstock...
I love this cotton bias-type ribbon -- It ties so nicely and adds a nice effect on these cards, don'tcha think???  ;)
This white cotton "ribbon" was a welcome find in my stash...  I'm thinking about tie-dying it with some stamp inks for other projects...  It ruffles so nicely!!  :)
These cards were FUN to make!!  So if you have some stickers floating around in your stash, and you've been trying to figure out how to turn them into something enjoyable to GIVE, well, here ya go -- make some Happy Cards!!  :)
Awwww...  Now don't those make ya HAPPY???  That's why I call them Happy Cards!!  :)

Okie-dokie, bloggie-land-friends -- It's YOUR turn!!  Create a project featuring anything DISNEY and link it up over Getting Cricky -- You have until JUNE 2nd to add your project to Kristal's Challenge Linky found HERE...  I can't wait to see what ya make!!  :)

Now...  For those of you who would like to check out all of the AMAZING Disney Pixar projects from the Blog Hop, be sure to check out the links below...  *** REMEMBER ***  There is an AWESOME GRAND PRIZE being offered for this hop (I'm not sure I'm allowed to tell you what it is, but if you keep it between you and me...  It's a SCRAP'N EASEL-ETTE!!)  All the details for the PRIZE can be found HERE...

Oh Amy, these definitely make me happy. And I hope you'll be happy to know that I LOVE this idea as I have the same kind of Disney stash that really needs to be put to use and shared with others. I LOVE that you made each one so unique with the ribbon, embossing, etc. Fabulous idea and I'd love to lift it!!
Hugs,
Larelyn

Hey girl, it was so good to hear from you. It's been way too long. I've got to tell you, there were a lot of great Disney projects for the hop this weekend, but these cards are my favorite! I super love them and am going to copy some of these wonderful designs you came up with. I'm so glad we were in another hop together too.

Pam said...

Oh Amy, these are all so "happy"!
The colors are perfect. I love that each set has it's own color scheme.
Another great project, as I have come to expect from you, my sweet and dear friend.

Hugs, Pam
