Welcome to Day 2 of the Everything Paper Piecing Blog Hop!  So glad you came back to visit and if this is your first time...WELCOME!
There are lots of great projects today and some great blog candy....

Be sure to check back everyday to see new projects created using paper piecings,
and there just might be some extra blog candy to share!  If you just lucked out and happened to show up on my blog, please start from the beginning HERE (Liz's blog).  Enjoy and have fun!

Now on to my Project!  I'm very excited to share!  Do you know how hard it is to make something and not be able to share it immediately!!  :)~
My project for today is a Martini Card Set with a "Gift Box" Purse to hold the cards!  Wouldn't this be fun to give to a friend for her birthday or some other fun occasion!  The files I used to make this project are from SVGCuts.com.  I used the freebie Martini and freebie Sexy High Heel SVG's.....these are actually freebies on their blog!!  I also used a great collection called Sweet Designer Cards and Envelopes SVG Collection and Sunny Weekend Purses SVG Kit.  I love the background paper!  It is called Flirty Girls Night Out by WeRMemoryKeepers.  I used clear window sheets on top of the glass and embossed it to give it texture and an actual "glass" look.  A little "salt" (embossing glitter) on the rim, add the olive, ...and you are good to go!

I hope you enjoyed this!  Leave me a comment and tell me what you think....

Oh...Don't forget, On the last Blog Hop Day, I will be giving away a $10 gift card to SVGCuts.com that they have so generously donated!  Winner will be randomly picked and announced on the 16th.  Here is what you must do to be in the drawing for the gift card:
First......Leave a comment on each of my 3 "Blog Hop" projects and......
Second.....Become a follower here on my blog!  That's it!  Good luck!

Now hop on over to Mandy's blog and see what she has in store for you.  Be sure to check back tomorrow for new projects and possible blog candy!
Thanks for hopping along with the Everything Paper Piecing Blog Hop, I hope you enjoyed your stay!
*Thanks!* ~Kristin  :)~
