"Mom's the Word" Cardz TV Blog Hop DAY TWO

Welcome to day two of the "Mom's the Word" Cardz TV Blog Hop!  If you arrived here from Karen's Blog, you are headed in the right direction.  I decided to make an Accordion card.  I found some wonderful paper at Michaels the other day in the $1.50 bins.  Blue is my favorite color so I had to have this little package of paper.  It has 2 sheets of each paper, 12 in all.  For the sentiments, I used the Cardz TV Stamp set "Mother's Day."  It has so many wonderful sentiments.
The blue paper is Bazzill and was cut at 4 x 12 and scored at 4, 8 inches.  The pretty blue patterned papers were cut at 3 3/4 x 3 3/4.  I used my favorite corner punch from EK Success.  For the sentiment mats I used EK Success and McGill punches.  I used some Recollections flat back pearls.

As a reminder, Mary is giving away two sets of Cardz TV Stamps, WINNER'S CHOICE!  All you have to do is go to her blog and leave her a comment.  You have until Midnight EST tonight.  She will announce the winner on Monday May 7th.  As for me, I am giving away a Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.  All you have to do to be entered is be a follower of my blog, and leave me a comment.  Super easy!  I love to hear from you all.   I will announce the winner on Monday, May 7th.
