Day Two of My Blog-o-versary (First Anniversary) SVG Card Blog Hop

Welcome to day two of the my Blog-o-versary (First Anniversary) SVG Card Blog Hop.
For my project I did this baby announcement for a boy. Of course a simple change of colors and it will work for a girl too.
Well, just about everything is from my stash so I don't have names of paper or ribbon
SVG of baby buggy
Brads (2) on wheels
Wire to bend and make handle
I also used Sizzix Ransom for lettering
Copic BG05 for trim on wheels and top as well as the lettering
I hope you like it. I do have one word of caution for you, don't use thin paper for the top or you may do like I did and instead of putting fold lines in it I cut it.
What you find in the SVG I am sure you will know all the pieces except I have 4 that look like they are pizza slices. What I did is glue these on back of the top of the buggy. Between them is where I scored so the top looks pleated. You don't have to use them but figured I would leave them in case you wanted them. You can get your Baby Buggy SVG by clicking here.

Thank you for stopping, I hope you enjoyed the pretty cards and the SVG files.
Also a big thanks to Sher, Shelly, and Cindy for celebrating with me. Your projects were great!

Your next hop is over to Sher's blog, Patterns by Sher.

Welcome to my Blog-o-versary SVG Card Blog Hop

I can't believe one year has gone by already. In reality it should be even longer but I figured I wasn't computer smart and no way would I be able to do my own blog so I put it off and put it off. I was so glad one day I got tired of missing all the fun so I started this blog. It was easy!!! Time consuming but easy.

So here I am one year later and I now have two blogs. There is this one and I have one for my reading (Nook) which if your interested you can find it here. I will be probably start another one too. One for my Kindle. In my ultimate wisdom I named my first reading blog "Nook" which of course is not going to work for my Kindle. That is like putting Coke on a Pepsi site.

Any ways, this blog is one year old and so I am celebrating with a short SVG blog hop for you. Please be kind and leave all the stops some love on their cards and look for the free SVG at each stop. That is our present to you. We are all at different levels at making SVG and some (like mine) may not look like much, it was still made with love. Thank you and on to the hop....

Welcome to day one of the my  Blog-o-versary (First Anniversary) SVG Card Blog Hop.
For my SVG project I am showing this card for my new neighbor
