My Pinkalicious Blog Hop

Welcome to the My Pinkalicious Blog hop for February.  If you came here from Sonia's Blog, you are right on track.  You can follow along on the hop or you can even join us.  Just go to Robyn's blog to start & get the details on how to join our hop.
Our challenge for this month was to use the color black and our favorite color.  Well, I really don't have a favorite color.  But since getting on this Cricut obsession I do like really bright green.  So that is the color I chose to do my project with.  I think it really pops against the dark black.
I decided to make a giftcard holder using a recycled TP roll.  I know I have seen this on someone's blog, but for the life of me I can't remember who's it was.  So thank you for the inspiration.
 
Details:
I used my Gypsy & Cricut to design & create this project.
Wrap It Up Cartridge- Football
Tags, Bags, Boxes, & More Cartridge - Stamp, Background, & Tag Shape
TP Roll flattened with the Cuttlebug & covered with black cardstock
I used my Corner Chomper to round the corners of the covered TP Roll.
I glued one end of the TP Roll closed & sealed the edge with a crimper.
My Pink Stamper Stamp Set - Sport-tastic
                                                
The next stop on the hop is:  Julie - ReadySetStamp

Thanks for looking. Questions & comments are always welcomed. Lori
