Cardz TV "Anything Goes" Challenge and Blog Hop

Happy Sunday all.  I'm so excited to welcome you to day 2 of the Cardz TV Anything Goes Challenge and Blog Hop.


 My team mates and I have made a card for your inspiration using one of the new stamp sets from CardzTV.  These are "Picture This", "Summer Fun", "Many Thanks" and "More Critter Captions". I have included a pic of each so you can see for yourself what great stamps these are.  So fun too!

 
 
 
 
For my card, I used "Summer Fun".  Yes, that is correct I used a summer themed stamp for my Christmas card :-) That is one of the great things about CardzTV stamps, they are so versatile :-)

 
I just love the way this card came out and how appropriate this stamp is for this image. I'm thinking that this card is going to make it's way to my hubby :-) The DP is from Doodlebug Design called Home for the Holidays. The oval mats were cut using Spellbinders Large Ovals and Scalloped Ovals.  Mr. Smores was cut using a die from Cottage Cutz and the sentiment, stamped using the "Summer Fun" Cardz TV stamp set was matted on ovals cut using SU! punches. The little hearts banner is a die by La La Land.

 
I used the same green Paper Studio cardstock for the inside and another heart banner. All in all, a pretty simple card to make but festive too :-)
 
Now in order to hop along with us, there are a few things you need to do.
Make sure you visit all my team members and leave a comment.  There is candy along the way to be won, all you have to do is to follow their directions.  Mary at Cardz TV is giving away two of her new stamps sets, and I know you won't want to miss this, so make sure you leave her some bloggie love too :-)
 
I thought that since I used the Summer Fun stamp set, that it would be great to give one away to one lucky participant as my blog candy.  All you have to do is become a follower of my blog and leave me a comment on this post.  I will use random.org to pick a winner and announce it on Wednesday. 
 
Here is the blog hop line up.  If you get lost along the way, just come back and you can see where to go next.  You should have arrived here from our fabulous Rhonda.  Your next stop along this fun hop is the amazing Anne-Marie.
