SMC's April Blog Hop

APR MONTHLY SPONSORS (prizes will be awarded during the New Release Blog Hop)
APR 1st -- APR 29th

The cuttingcafe blinkie

Prize package -- 3 Stamp Sets of winners choice

Hello my name is Regina Easter. I have 4 wonderful children and an awesome supportive husband. I have for as long as I can remember loved all the aspects of creating things with paper and drawing. So it was only fitting that I decided to open up The Cutting Cafe'and I am loving every bit of this new venture. The Cutting Cafe offers affordable Printable Stamps and Cutting Files. The Cutting Files which are basically just like templates are files that you Print out using your home printer, Cut, Assemble and then Embellish.....Very Easy.....The Cutting Files also come in the format where you can cut out the files using some of the latest Machine Cutters like the Pazzles Inspiration, Bosskut Gazelle and Cricut (with Scal software). The Printable Stamps are just that, images that are sent to you through email that you print out using your home printer. After the images are printed out, you can just color them in like you would any other stamped imaged...One great thing about the Printable Stamps and Cutting Files is that you no longer have to worry about finding space to store all of your stamps....You can keep them all in a folder in your computer and use over and over again.

APR 1st -- APR 29th
Sponsor Prize Package -- $10 Gift Certificate

This blog hop will run from today, April 2nd until April 8. On the 9th, the winner will be announced. Thank-you for taking the time to hop along. You should have come from Mary S.'s blog. When you are finished hopping, why not check out the Sew Many Cards Store! There you can find the current challenge and this week's Friday Freebie.

I'd would like to also remind you of the monthly challenges we have at Sew Many Cards Challenge Blog!
My creation this week is a card....they are my favorite thing to make. I love to color, as you know if you've visited my blog much! Angela is ushering spring in with some very cute images. I have GIRL WITH HEARTS to show you.

I colored the girl with my alcohol markers (my one Copic flesh color and the rest of them are Bic, Sharpie, or Prisma color markers). I used a teal green ink and a makeup sponge to sponge the edges of the light blue cardstock. I also used it on the smaller orange flower. I used 3 orange brads from Making Memories Citrus and the flowers are Making Memories Hulabaloo. The Springtime sentiment was in a grab bag from Boni back when I was on the SSDS design team. I'm able to find everything now that I'm finally getting my craft room back. :)

Now, to continue the blog hop, please visit Amber and if you'd like to see the Friday Freebie in use, please scroll down to my next post. Don't forget to leave me a comment if you'd like a chance to win a free SMC digi-image.
