A House of Cards

**October Afternoon Blog Hop**

Hey everyone!  Today, October Afternoon is having a Rubber Charms Blog Hop.  Exciting, isn't it?!  :)  You can hop from each designer's blog to the next to see some WONDERFUL projects featuring these fun embellishments.  

The project I want to share with you today is a rocket-shaped card.


I made it using the Rubber Charms, patterned paper, a sticker, and buttons from the new Rocket Age collection.  (The red polka dot paper is from the Modern Homemaker collection.)  I found the rocket image for the card shape from a piece of clip art in my Word program, and hand cut and pieced everything together.  Then, I cut a hole in the center of the card to allow the little robot rubber charm to peek out.     


Aren't these Rubber Charms the cutest?!?! 

October Afternoon is giving away a Rubber Charm prize pack at each designer's blog, so make sure to leave a comment here on this post AND at the each of the other design team members' blogs for a chance to win one.   (And just in case you are just happening on my blog by chance, you can head on over to the October Afternoon blog and start from the beginning.  There are 12 blogs in the hop in all, so make sure to stop by each one.  12 chances are better than one, right?  ;) ) )

So, the next blog to hop on over to is Kinsey Wilson's blog.

Winners will be posted on Monday, May 16th, so get to hopping and GOOD LUCK!!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
