I have TWO projects to share with you. The first is actually one of the PRIZES for this hop!

Its a Hello Kitty Fry Box!!! And I LOVE Hello Kitty!!

 This is from SVG Cutting Files! I used Echo Park dots and stripes paper and Papertrey Ink Cardstock. 

For the bottom of the hershey kisses I used Jaded Blossom's Pattern Candies and Friendly Candies

Here is a side view

And for my second project I wanted to create a card based on Tokidoki's Carina! Now I know hardly any of you will know Tokidoki but I LOVE Tokidoki! And whats better than Tokidoki and a cat combined?!!? So this is Carina.. 

And this is my card. Carina SVG was created by Ann from SVG Cutting Files and you can actually download her for free!!! 

The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's Java Time
