OCT. 27- GIFT CARD HOLDER by Vickie
OCT. 29- Baby Garland by Sandy

Let's get started !!

As the theme of the Blog Hop is "It's All about the Kids," I've decided to relate a little story about one particular kid during the week.  Her name is Susie!  Today's card announces Susie to the world.   If you've followed my blog at all, you know I love to make fun-fold cards.  Today's card is a Building Block Card.


As you can see, when you open the card, the "blocks" pop out of the valley fold inside.   I added a little bling to the inside -- baby hands and feet.


Here is a close-up of the blocks (prior to my adding the bling).  A little hint:  To make adhering small die-cut pieces easier, put some double-sided adhesive (either a sheet or strips) on the back of the card stock before you cut them out.  That way you don't have to try to add glue after the pieces are cut. 



For this card I used MFP Stamp Shop set Bundle of Joy.




Here's the Design Team:

 Karen
Kren
Lois  (that's me)
Marilynn
Enjoy the Hop. Come back each day for more Kiddo fun. We hope to inspire you to start your own Kids projects.  Get to work on the tutorials.  Show us what you made by Nov. 13 and check back 
on Nov. 14, 2015, to see if you are a winner.
