Hopping Along with Gina K and CPC

Welcome! I am so excited you have stopped by my blog on your way through the Christian Paper Crafts blog hop featuring none other than precious Gina K's products! Gina is so generous and loving and we are just thrilled to have her as our sponsor this month! Have you ever checked out her store? If not, let me tell you, boy are you missing something good. The stamp set I will be showcasing to you from Gina is part of her Stamps for a Cause line - How Sweet It Is! You can check out this wonderful set and all of the details about it, by clicking here. I am over the moon at the fact that this stamp set supports Diabetes! So very close to my heart since my parents are both diabetics and I am a diabetes educator!
On with our hop! If you are coming here first, please go to Cindy's blog since she is the beginning of this hop... You should have arrived here from Natalie's blog and head on over to Jen's blog after leaving me!
The first item I have to show you today is a little card that I made utilizing the free digi papers that can be found on Gina K's site! I love the look of these papers, even an ice cream name with Neapolitan :o) I added some buttons from Gina K's store along with the oh so yummy looking ice cream stamp and there you go!

My next item for you today is something rather simple, but fun to mass produce and create! Altered pocket tissues! At church, everyone is always looking for a tissue, so what cuter way to share them than to spruce up the packaging and make it look like a sweet Spring treat! These can also be done as affordable small gifts for any holiday, including the upcoming Valentine's Day!
I hope you have fun as you are hopping along with us today! Be sure to check out Gina K's store as they just had a new release last night!!!

God Bless You,
