Ok, so I make two shaped cards for this hop one is a birthday card for my aunt. I made it into a pennant shape. I know there are so many pennants out there but I just love this shape.

I think a came out so cut. I actually made it by hand. I wanted to use my cricut but I just couldn't update it and I was getting so frustrated! I gave up and so hence the handmade card.

I used Jenny Bowlin's punch
its a cute punch. the paper is from October Afternoon.

Used foam pop dots to pop the blue ribbon punch pieces.
I also used jenny bowlin red banner sticker letters
I also just used a black maker to add doodles around the yellow pieces.

The Birthday sentiment is from Close to my Heart Stamp

My Second card is this cute little house card. 
I just folded my paper in half and placed it so that the die wouldn't cut through the fold. and then I cut two sheet of pattern paper from the same shape.

I cut the the roof part from both of the patterned paper and just adhered the appropriate shapes to the card. 
I just cut the scalloped shape free~hand
Then I cut the shaped for the door and windows
The green trim (the grass) is my little Rak that 
I'm giving one lucky follower. 
Two Yards of it :D

The finishing touch, I used a Scrarlet lime; black marker , some  charcoal pencil and a little white mark all stabilo pencil 
I hope you all like what I came up with for this hop.
Your next stop is Doris

Happy Hopping
