Hippity Hop Graphic 45 blog hop #2 for me tonight!!

lol busy busy girl here!! So much hopping is a happening :) Earlier tonight I started off the weekend with the Twiddleybitz RAKAMANIA blog hop which everyone is invited to join along so see my post below for something interesting made out of a dishwashing liqud bottle!!

But just stick around to check out some more of this weeks G45 & Core'dinations blog hop :) When I received my G45 DT kit a few weeks back I instantly fell in love with the extra goodies included from Core'dinations - there are ink pads, cardstock, embossed card, card sets everything I needed to go with G45 papers and embellishments :)

The card stock matches absolutely perfectly with G45 papers as does the inks - I even love the sanding block (so easy to hold!) and the dust buddy which if you distress a lot like me is perfect for collecting up all that "snow" that gets over all your work and clothes!!!

I will be honest and say I felt like I was cheating - Core'dinations teamed up with G45 made it all so easy to create!! I went with some simple cards - Ask anyone and I will tell you I am not a cardmaker - you just have to look around at the simply stunning cards there is!! But I do like making my own which I give to those I know who appreciate the effort that goes into them so with the aim of being organised this year I have created some thankyou cards for my daughters teachers :) Being in Australia we are coming up to the end of our school year and the wonderful summer holidays :) These are something anyone can create :) Teamed up with some May Arts twine and voila they are done - this set honestly took me about 30 minutes to create and as the cards etc were all ready boned with envelopes and the cardstock embossed - all I had to do was sand and stick!! :) I hope you enjoy :)
