It's time for the Disney/Pixar Blog Hop!

There was such an awesome response the first time around for the Disney/Pixar blog hop, who wouldn't want to do another?  So here we go again!  If you have come from Marlo's Scrap N Tote's blog you are on the right track!  If you have just come to visit me for the day and would like to go on the full blog hop, start here with Shawn Crafty Chics blog

I do have a super quick favor to ask!  I'm trying to get my blog in the Top 25 mom shops!  All you have to do is click on the link on the left side of my blog and click the thumbs up by my Chomas Creation's logo.  There is no need to register and no annoying emails will be sent, and it only takes a second.  And if you want to go back every day that would be awesome to!

If you would like to see the Toy Story layout I did with the Chomas Creations mini gel pens for the first blog hop, you can view that here... First blog hop
I decided to play with some different Mickey images I found online with Make-the-Cut and make some cards this time around.  Birthday cards always come in handy to have laying around!  The first one I did I used the Chomas Creations embossing kit on Ten Seconds Studios metal sheets with this Mickey image I found.  To get this look you add the metal sheet colored side down on the embossing mat, and after embossing you sand the image to get the silver to pop through.

The 2nd card I made I used the Chomas Creations engraving tip on clear cardstock to engrave or etch the Mickey Mouse heads onto the clear cardstock. Click on the image to see it closer and better!  I also made the title with a Mickey font and layered it, then shadowed it. 

The last card I made used the Chomas Creations engraving tip as well, but this time on metallic paper by Colorbok.  I picked up a 2 pack of these metallic sheets at Target for just $.99!  And it cuts great with the Cricut.

Have you heard that we lowered the prices on the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder, mini Sharpie holder, and micro Sharpie holder? 
The Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder and mini Sharpie holders are now $19.49!
The Chomas Creations micro Sharpie holder is now $18.49 and we have 8 colors of micro Sharpies available for sale!
The Chomas Creations are now $5.49 for a 10 pack, or $10.49 for all 20 of the mini gel pens.

**CLOSED**  Also to celebrate the 2nd Disney/Pixar blog hop, how about a give away?  You don't have follow my blog to win, but why not??  And if you could take a minute to vote for me (again not mandatory, but why  not hehe) for the Top 25 mom shops, that would be awesome!   Leave a comment after this post on what you think of the 3 cards I made for the hop and you could win a Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder and 10 pack of assorted mini gel pens!  Only 1 entry per person, and remember I must have a way to contact you!  I will post the winner on my blog Sunday night/Monday morningish!  You will have 1 week to claim your prize or I will draw another winner.  **You may still comment on this post but it will not be put in the drawing, the drawing is now closed.

Next stop on the hop is Jenny over at  Jenny Place.  Hop on over to see what she has in store for you!

In case you got lost on the hop along the way, here is the master list for day 1!

Hi Amy,

I think your cards are great - I actually have the embossing mat and have tried it several times. I love the idea of the clear acetate. The Mickey heads all over the acetate look great! I also love the idea of the metal you found at Target. I'm going to have to drive over and see if they have it here. I also have Ten Second Studio metal sheets, but they don't look as good as yours.

I like all 3 of the cards but the last one I like best. I don't know if it is because I am a coin collector and it looks like a coin to me or what...can't put my finger on it. They are all great.
