Your first stop along this hop will be with...

Robin Lane with Create-A-Latte 

For my project, I decided to make a set of mini or 3" x 3" cards:

When I originally started to think about what I would make for this hop, I was thinking Christmas holiday or winter theme.  Then when I finally got around to creating, I just wasn't feelin' it, you know?  I decided to use a snowflake stamp to create the background of my mini cards.  So I used the "Single Snowflake" stamp set to random stamp the background using Lagoon ink.  I then used the sentiment "today is a good day" as the focal point of my card stamping it in Gypsy ink.  The images comes from the All the Details stamp set.  I cut the scalloped oval using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  You can find the image on page 52, D2, < Oval4 > cut at 2 1/2" and 2 3/4".  I used Gypsy cardstock for the matte.  I think these will be fun to give to friends or co-workers for encouragement.
