Mickey and Friends Blog Hop

Day 1: Welcome to the first but not last Disney/Pixar Blog Hop.  This hop is scheduled from September 29 at 8:00 am through September 30 at 11:00 pm.

If you have come from Shannon's blog, you are on the right track. If not and you just happened to come to this blog, you can go back to the beginning HERE and 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.

The hop is a 2-day hop so you will have plenty of time to make it through the whole hop lineup twice. Check out each blog and see what blog candy you can win at the individual stops. Please come back both days to see great projects.

Here is the complete lineup:

There is going to be an overall grand prize sponsored by Lisa from Scrapping with Lisa and she will be the first and last 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 my blog and of Scrapping With Lisa on facebook.  The grand prize for the blog hop is a nice grab bag full of goodies.  You won't be disappointed in this prize.

My project for today on the hop is the cheshire cat from Alice in Wonderland --- who doesn't love an infectious smile from a baby or him....

Who wouldn't smile when you open this card . . . was in an Alice mode when Sasha and I made this card of the Cheshire Cat with that big grin of his cut at 4.75 inches using the Cricut Cartridge Disney Classics which was placed with puff dots on the card base of course cut from my very most favorite cartridge - A Child's Year cut at 6-inches. SMILE was cut at 1.50 from the Create a Critter cartridge. A wonderful trick I learned from Canadian Nickel -- she used aluminum foil on a Halloween card that she put through her Cuttlebug. I love the look and used Swirley on the foil and put the word Smile on top!! Thanks Nicole for the idea!

Of course, I had Sasha's help again and she is a big help! We put the ribbon along with the smaller parts through the Xyron which makes life sew much easier to attach just keeping the Xyron right beside the Cricut when cutting my pieces! Added a bow and a little bit of glitz with the rhinestones and SMILE!

Now, the big question is -- who would like a card like this to open
would you SMILE?
ok, you guessed it, my Cheshire Cat card is my blog candy to the lucky winner!

Your next stop is Indira.

Have a great day and I look forward to seeing you again.
God Bless
Hugs and Love,
