Welcome to the Elmo and Friends Blog Hop.  This hop is scheduled from June 18 at 9:00 am through June 19 at 11:00 pm. This is Day 2.

If you just happened to come to this blog, you should start at the beginning at Lisa - http://handmadewithlove-lisa.blogspot.com/. If you came from Laura's blog at LauraLeesDream, then come hop along with us.

We're so excited to be doing this hop and we have a fabulous lineup with some very talented ladies.  There will be lots of fun projects, along with some great blog candy, and a great grand prize for this hop.

This is Day 2 of our hop.  Check out each blog and see what blog candy you can win at the individual stops. 

There is going to be an overall grand prize sponsored by Lisa from Scrapping with Lisa Designs and she will be the first stop in the lineup.  In order to qualify for the grand prize, you must leave a comment on every stop in the hop. You also must become a follower of her blog, her DT blog at http://scrappingwithlisadesignsdt.blogspot.com/ and all blogs in this hop. The grand prize for the blog hop is $20 in free files over at scrappingwithlisadesigns.com.

My second project is another card with our friend Elmo from Sesame Street!

I used Close to My Heart's Stella paper to create this card.  This is another A2 sized card - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  

I used our exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to make the mat directly underneath Elmo.  You can find the image on page 47, C7, < Shape8 > cut at 3 3/4" x 4 3/4".  The sentiment was stamped on the image from page 64, E4, < Rctngle3 > cut at 3/4" x 1 1/2".  The sentiment came from the stamp set called "A Tree".
Elmo was made using the Sesame Street Seasons Cricut cartridge.  This image can be found on page 29, A2, < Elmo1 > cut at 4 1/2".
Supplies Used:
Sesame Street Seasons Cricut Cartridge
Stella Paper (X7151B)
Black Cardstock (1386) 
A Tree (A1124)
