You should have arrived here from the lovely Jenny's  blog.   I am sure you enjoyed her great project.

So, on with the hop.  I have four mini cards today.  They are all made with DeNami stamps.


Let's start with the Mimi Mini Cards.  I used Sweetheart Mimi for the first two cards.  I went with summery colors and colored with markers and a blender pen.  The spotlight is on Mimi for the first card
(2 3/4 x 4 1/2").  I stamped on the aqua CS with Stazon Black ink and again on white CS.  I punched out a scallop circle on the white CS and colored.  I put a ribbon loop that could be used to hang on a gift basket or a wine bottle.



And here is a peek at the inside.


The second Mimi card (2 1/2" square) has Mimi stamped and colored.  I punched the scallop squares and layered onto a lavender card base.   I added a ribbon loop to this card too.

And, the inside.


And, then I thought I would spread a little "Chickie" love and made two cute Chickie card.  The first is cut with a Spellbinders and the stamp is Best Friends Chickie (4 1/2 x 2 1/2").  The chickies are punched.  I used some Cosmo Cricket paper.


And the inside.




And finally, Firefighter Chickie.  I used Spellbinders to cut all the pieces in bright red colors (3 1/4 x 2 1/4").


The inside.

Your next stop on the hop is the talented Andrea's blog.   Enjoy!


Have fun on the hop and don't forget to leave a comment.  Have a great day!  Love ya.
