The Cricky Across the 50 Blog Hop: Montana

A Big Cricut Hello & Chirp to each of you! Welcome to the Cricky Across the 50 Blog Hop hosted by K Andrew of Getting Cricky! If you are here from Kathy Northup of I Love My Crazy Life then you are in the right spot. If you just arrived here and would like to start from the beginning please go to KAndrew's Getting Cricky! For this blog hop K Andrew is celebrating her big move across the country with a big road trip, and of course this hop across the 50 states! She has asked us all to post a little bit about the state we are representing, and then to post our Favorite Craft Project. I am representing the state of


Map of MY state!

This is some of what you see in  MY beautiful state! I feel bad though, I didn't take this pic, I got it off of Google Images. 
 Here is a fact from Legends of America (this link will get you to the facts about MT). It is about the Roe River that yours truly helped get into the Guinness Book of World Records when I was in fifth grade! Here is the fact from the site: The Roe River is recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's shortest river. The Roe flows 200 feet between Giant Springs and the Missouri River near Great Falls. The Roe River competes with the D River in Lincoln City, Oregon for the title of the shortest river. Both rivers have been measured on different occasions, with lengths varying from 58 feet to 200 feet. Schoolchildren in Great Falls campaigned successfully to have the Roe River placed in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Now for my project:

Feel the Love Blog Hop

Hey all! If you have come from Michelle's Queen of My Craft Room Blog, you have made it to the last stop on this blog hop and THANKS so much for viewing what everyone has done for you. :) I'm sure all of their ideas have inspired all of you! :) I have some blog candy available so you will want to get in on that! :) To do that just leave a comment in the comment section with your email please in case you are chosen. If you don't leave your email, I have to chose someone else. :(  If you would like to be counted twice...BECOME A FOLLOWER! :) If not, it's all will still be counted but only once. :)

Here's the candy:

6x6 Sassafras Lass Sunshine Lollipops pad, Hampton Arts glitter glue, 10 prescored cards with 10 pink envies, a roll of paper tape, a roll of printed tape, We R Memory Keepers glittered brads, a little baggie of blingy baubles (flowers).

I have a video on how to make the metal rose on the romatic card that I made for the hop. I am not a HUGE fan of having to have pinks, whites, and reds for Valentine's Day. I like a little bit of the more classic, romantic looking colors too. So, I chose purple and cream for this project.

The card I did for the Hop.  :)
This is part one of the video that shows how to make the rose!

Here is the video on the card! It's a quickie! :)

What I used: Nashua metal tape, Fiskars punch (5 petal flower), Adirondak Alcohol Inks (Stream, Wild Plum, and Eggplant), K&Co Patterned Paper, Stickles (Antique Linen), CTMH Ink (Hydrangea), Best Value Ribbon (Organdy Ribbon), glue dots, ATG.
