Pals April Hop--Families First

Welcome to the Families First Pals Blog Hop for April 2017.  We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes.  

This month we are featuring projects that are all about our families. This is a great time of year to think about what to make for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or upcoming graduations. And, family vacations are just around the corner… how would you want to remember those special family moments? We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

Mother's Day is just around the corner and I wanted to be prepared. I don't have a mom or mother-in-law to send a card to, but I have friends and family who are moms. I like to add an encouraging word or scripture inside, so I keep the front clean and simple.

The banner at the top of my card is the leftover piece from cutting out the main focus behind the sentiment. I added some In Color (Peekaboo Peach) Enamel Shapes to it and popped it up using Stampin' Dimensionals. 

I used the Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack from the Occasions Catalog for my card colors. The diamond pattern provides extra colors that I didn't incorporate on my card. My sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and is punched out using the Classic Label Punch.

Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!
