Paper Players Blog Hop

Welcome to the Paper Players blog hop!
You probably arrived here from Lesley's blog and I'm sure she had something wonderful to share with you.
We all have some great projects to share with you plus still our usual challenge to go with it.

The challenge this week is Anything Goes!
I have two cards and matching gifts to share with you today. I couldn't decide which to pick so I decided I'd share both!

The first uses the Build-A-Cupcake Punch and matching stamp set, Create A Cupcake. I made the card using the Scallop Square Die Cut and Nursery Suite DSP.

I made a fridge magnet to match with a close pin and the magnet sheets cut to size.

The second set uses the Blossoms Petal Punch and matching stamp set, Build A Blossom. I made this card with the Scallop Circle Die Cut and Sweet Stitches DSP.

The matching gift box is made with the Petal Cone Die and cut down a little so that it has a flat bottom. I filled it with some shredded tissue and chocolate treats.

Now what would a blog hop be with out some blog candy! I'm giving away a full roll of Pear Pizazz Ribbon that I used on my cupcake card plus that sweet fridge magnet to go with it. To be eligible you will need to leave me a comment and become a follower of my blog. Don't forget to leave me an email where I can reach you.
Now head on over to Nance Leedy to see what she has got going on. Or if you are just joining us click on Anne-Marie Hile to start at the beginning of the hop.
