Kiwi Lane Designs Blog Hop!

Wow, it sure has been a long time since I last posted. I am hoping that I will have more time to create and blog since school is out ONE week from today. I am also nearly done completing all the (hard) work to renew my teaching certificate.

If you're hopping along, you should have just been at Leslie's blog! Thanks for taking the time to check out my cards.

I was a little nervous about using the Kiwi Lane designer templates, since they were unlike any other craft product I have ever used. The sets I was given to work with were Sweetheart and Thoughtful.

As soon as I started using them, I was amazed at how fast the cards came together. It was so easy to use the templates to create quick, simple cards. I am definitely going to need to add a few more card sets to my collection! I totally recommend getting your hands on a set or two if you have not done so already!












I am especially happy with my 4th of July cards!

Don't forget to comment on the blogs, including the Kiwi Lane blog for a chance to win $25 to the Kiwi Lane Shop!

I am also doing a giveaway of my own. Leave a comment and I will use random.org to choose one of you to win a little crafty fun from my stash!

Next up: Ashley's blog!
