Update Hop!!

Hi Everybody!
Welcome to the (very) last minute Update Hop!  I wanted to throw together a quick hop to show some projects you could make with the new (or new to you) carts in the latest update for the Gypsy.  Some other crazy ladies agreed to do this with me, so here is the lineup:

And now for my project! Today also happens to be my husband's birthday, so I decided to use the new Smiley cart to make him a card.  And can I just say, there are so many SUPER DUPER cute images on this cart that I think my head exploded!!  Here are the details:

* card base 6" x 6" with Stampin' Up cardstock
*Post-It Paper used for image, layers, and sentiment
*image and layers cut @ 3.75"
*MS border punch
*Pink by Design sentiment from Take the Cake set on the inside:

Growing old is mandatory,
Growing up is optional

That's it! This card only took me about 20 minutes to put together, from design to done.  Using this paper helps a ton in saving time. 


As a quick little prize, if you do all the stops on the hop (there are only 6), you can win 10 3" cuts from the new Smiley cart!  So if you don't have a Gypsy, this would be a great prize so you can still get cuts from this cart!  If you do have a Gypsy, then these cuts will show you what this cart can do too!!  The winner can tell me what theme they would like.  To enter:
