Friday Fun and the Caffinated Cropper Blog Hop - Two Cards- One Post!

It's Friday and I have a lot to share with you today.  We are having a blog hop for Caffinated Cropper plus it's the Friday Fun Challenge (#79).  It's a good thing that the With a Cherry On Top kit works perfectly with this week's Friday Fun Challenge because I can't stop using it.
For the Friday Fun Challenge Christi gave us one of her favorite Spring Color Combos to play with.  The colors are Green, Pink, Cream and Kraft.  Any shades of those colors will work.  I also used the sketch from the Card Patterns Blog (#60) for my layout.  Everything on this card with the exception of the Kraft Base and Mint Green and Vanilla card stock is from the With a Cherry On Top Kit.  (that is REAL fabric and cork on the card)  The image is one of the digital stamps from Lindsay Spencer created exclusively for this kit. 
Be sure to check out the other Friday Fun Girls' Blogs for more inspiration:

My next card is a card that I had to create just for the fun of it.  I made an apron using a template I found on Mirkwood Designs. (I changed the printing scale to make the card larger than the original template) This card was just so fun to make and the papers and trims in this kit were a perfect fit for this card.  Plus, I got to use my new sewing machine which I am in love with.  EVERYTHING (except the card base) is from this kit. 
This is the card with the tag in the "front pocket"

This is a view of the tag

And here is what the card looks like if you take the tag out of the pocket.  

Don't forget that with your purchase of the April kit, With a Cherry On Top you will also receive $10 gift certificates to the Whimsy Haven Store AND to EAD Designs.  This kit is an amazing deal that you do NOT want to miss out on.  Also- if you are sad because you missed out on the March Kit, The Beeez Kneeez, then you may want to know that Amy has ONE Beeez Kneeez kit left and she is bundling it with The Cherry on Top Kit for a fantastic price with FREE SHIPPING!   Everything is on Sale this weekend including some bundles and giveaways.  DON'T MISS OUT!  RUN, do not walk to Amy's blog to purchase your kits!  (sorry, I have always wanted to use that phrase...LOL)

Still not sure about With a Cherry on Top?  Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team's creations- including Michele our May Guest Designer!  I know by the end of this hop you will have to have this kit.
