Tara @ Craftin Desert Divas

Isn't she cute? When I saw the Dairy Cows files over at  KaDoodle Bug Designs I knew I wanted to make something with them. I LOVE their files. This was so quick and simple to put together. The milk carton is from the Silhouette Store #26044. I then added some Smokey Black Crinkle Ribbon from My Craft Spot. The eyes are Peachy Keen PK754 Critter Face Set but I stamped one eye at a time as they didn't line up the way I wanted when I used the eyes together as they are on the stamp. I added a tag with the sentiment from Peachy  Keen PKSC-17. Everything is inked in Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink. Finished it off with some recollections embellishments.

Craftin Desert Divas First Blogoversary Hop

I can't believe it has been one year since I have started my blog. Time sure does fly by when you share what you love to do! I'm so happy that my blog has grown and I've made some wonderful crafty friends. I have invited a few of them to join me to celebrate my 1yr blogoversary. This is a short hop with only 11 stops along the way. This is the first stop so you are in the right place!

Since I live in Arizona and my blog name reflects that; I thought (with a little help from a crafty friend - Jessica), how about a hop to celebrate the desert. These ladies are very talented and have done a wonderful job on their projects.  I also have some wonderful blog candy for this hop. So let's get this hop started!! Here's my project I made for this hop....

When I saw this Chili Pepper man with his mustache I thought he was super cute. The two chili peppers are from the same file. The cactus and skull are a print and cut from Miss Kate Cuttables. I cut the card shape and mats from the Silhouette store. It was so simple!! I've been trying out some new things with my Cameo.  This is one of the first times I have done a cut and print. It took me a few times and I watched a couple of you tube videos, but I'm happy to say I figured it out!!

The peppers are from Skraptastical Kreations Fiesta 
Spice Recollections Market Cardstock
DCWV All About Boys Polka Dot Cardstock
Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink


$20 Giftcard to their store

$10. CTHM Giftcard

$15. Giftcard to their store

To be eligible for the prizes you must visit each stop in this hop and leave a comment.
You must follow my blog and "like" Craftin Desert Divas Facebook page.
I will use and announce the winners here on May 28.

Here's the complete lineup in case you get lost along the way.
