Miss Kate Cuttables + Scrappy Mom's Stamps

Welcome to Day #1 of the 
Blog Hop!
And as you can see on the banner above, there will a chance to win prizes & free cut-files!

**You should be arriving here from Theresa's Blog**

Here is a look at my sweet card:

For my project,  I chose the "Bear Necessities" Stamp Set by SMS
Our school mascot is the bear and my daughter will be a middle school cheerleader
this next year...I know we will get A LOT of use from these stamps in making
tags, cards and  decorations :)
From Miss Kate's I've used the Birthday Bear cutting file:

I cut the bear from Core'dinations cardstock and patterned papers by
Doodlebug Design's "Hip Hip Hooray" Collection.  The enamel dots that I
used for the eyes and cheeks are also from Doodlebug.
I'm the last stop for today's hop...I hope that you've enjoyed
and will visit the rest of the week as both Design Teams continue on with 
some very creative ideas :)
Have a PAWS-itively great day!

Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)

Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
