C = Claire

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop! For this hop we will be featuring the letter C. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their C element will be featured in their post. If you came from Celebrate Crafts then you're on the right track!

Yippee ... here we go AGAIN... ABC. When I decided to do this blog hop I knew it would be fun.  I just never realized how many options there would be for each letter. (I probably won't run into that when we get to Q)  I considered card stock, Cricut, Chantilly, Cocoa, Champagne, Creme Brulee, Cranberry, Cotton Candy ... and then I just started getting hungry (I love the CTMH color names!!)  This time I could have called my post "Confused" if I didn't already name it after this awesome new paper pack from Close To My Heart ... CLAIRE.

Here's what we have and I'd looooooove hear your feedback. So keep reading and chime in ... after you look at the two photos.

These two cards are generally the same. The papers are from Claire ... the exact same piece only flipped. Isn't it amazing how different the looks are? I tried both white and blush for the stamping pieces. The owls have traded places. In one case there's a knot with the floss and in the other bow.

For the most part I'm pretty sure what I like best, but other people will be making this card based on what I offer. So it's fun to find out the preferences of others. What's your vote?? We could come up with a whole new card!

White or Blush?
Big Owl on Left or Big Owl on Right?
Knot or Bow?

There's one thing that won't change ... bling. I looooove these new pink sparkly gems from CTMH. If I was smart I would've ordered two packs the first time.
