If you just arrived here and would like to start from the beginning please go to KAndrew's Getting Cricky For this blog hop K Andrew is celebrating her big move across the country with a big road trip, and of course this hop across the 50 states! She has asked us all to post a little bit about the state we are representing, and then to post our Favorite Craft Project. I am representing the state of Indiana.

 Fun Fact:
Abraham Lincoln moved to Indiana when he was 7 years old. He lived most of his boyhood life in Spencer County with his parents Thomas and Nancy. 

My favorite place to visit is Shipshawana because there is tons of crafting things to see there  so of course it is my favorite!

On to my project: I decided to make a card for this hop and this is how it feels in Indiana right now.  I used a stamps set from one of our wonderful sponsors: Pink by Design stamps Woodland Critters.

Here is the recipe for this card
I used paper trey ink cardstock(solid) and DCWV patterned paper
My Imagine and the Snow Angel cart
ATG gun
Paper trey ink ribbon
