Today is the BIG day!! 
Time for the CARDZ TV 3-D BLOG HOP!! If you are coming here from Laura's Blog, you are right on track, otherwise you may want to start back at the beginning at Mary's Blog.

For today's hop, I made two projects to share with you...first up is a little wall hanging....I used CARDZ TV stamp set "JUST SAYING" for the sentiment.

The adorable little boat came from a file from The Cutting Cafe-
The stars and the anchor are from sets from My Creative Time.
The frame and wave were cut on my Explore.
Here is a look at the Awesome CARDZ TV stamp set:

for my next project I made this cute little doggy vending machine.

Once again, the sentiments are from CARDZ TV stamps....both of the sentiments used on this one were from  Barks And Bones, however, it is retired. But such a fun stamp set,I couldn't resist!!
The Vending Machine is a file from The Cutting Cafe.

Treat Cup Card with The Cutting Cafe

Hi Everyone, hope you all had a fabulous weekend!! We had lots going on, so it went by way too fast!
I wanted to share a cute card, and project I made. I have used the new TREAT CUP CARDS file and the LITTLE RED WAGON file from THE CUTTING CAFE.

I have made this for a "WAGON' themed Baby Shower, isn't it just perfect? 

And here is the card I made to go with it:

I put little blue baby pins and hearts in the treat box, so it really rattles!
You can't really tell by the picture, but the treat cup stands out with plenty of room for treats to be put inside.
The TREAT CUP CARDS file has 7 different treat cup cards to make 

along with a BOX for packaging them cute!!

I hope you get the opportunity to check out the AWESOME TREAT BOXES the rest of the DT made over on THE CUTTING CAFE Blog on the 21rst.....where you will also have the chance at winning 3 free CUTTING CAFE files of your own, just for commenting!

The Cutting Cafe and A Recycle Project



 Regina from THE CUTTING CAFE asked us to use one of her many BACKGROUND files this week for our Inspiration I have used: 
I have recycled an old bubble gum container that has a lid so that it can be used as a bank. I have made it into a "Just Because" money bank-and when it gets enough money in it-I will treat myself to some crafty goodies! Sounds good to me!! So, here is the container before I got started-

and here it is now....

I also added a bit of ribbon, and lots of 
SKITTLES from Double Click Connections,
 and a few flowers!! I hope this inspires you to recycle something that you have too! And don't forget to check out 
 tomorrow, to see what the rest of the DT recycled up for you!
