Welcome to the Sophie Blog hop!!

Hello and thanks for stopping by and if you have arrived here from Alma's blog then you are right on track! If you just came by for a visit and would like to hop along with us please go to the very talented and host of this sophie blog hop Michele .

Hello everyone!  Welcome to the Sophie Blog Hop!  This hop will feature projects made using the Cricut Circle Exclusive cartridge Sophie.  This is the first cartridge of the Cricut  Circle's second year!  All of the Participants here today are Cricut Circle members.  This is my Second year in the circle and have met some awesome lady's! Michele,Shirley (aka Bird), Ali, which is my Cricut Circle sister and we live very close to each other. My last year sister was Alicia (aka Skydolphin). I have another lady that lives right here in the same town, her name is polly but she dropped out of the circle,but we still  talk and hang out together and scrap together every chance we get! So when I signed up for the circle,I had no Idea that I would have such a great experience and meet new sweet friends!
The Sophie cartridge comes with many features including cards, bookmarks, and doilies.  Hop along with us to explore the Sophie cart and gain some inspiration!

I made a Card and Bookmarker to share with you today. 

I cut the leaf 2, doily at 4" and backed it on some pattern paper from my scraps and used a glitter pen to fill in the leaves.Flowers are from a blog hop winnings, and the middle cut is from preserves cartridge,label cut at 2.5"
the bookmarker was designed on my design studio and welded together and I don't remember the size I cut it at, but it measures 5" long. did the hide contour for the center of the marker. and covered with some laminate i bought at walmart.

    That's the one reason I would LOVE to join the circle is to meet other crafters in my area. I don't know any and think it would be great to meet some people to scrap with around here. I have been out of work for a year, but I think when I get a job I will look into joining :-)
