Well this week went by in a blink, didn’t it? Who am I kidding, they all do!
Today is a pretty special Festive Friday around here… I am so excited to be participating in a Blog Hop celebrating the newest special publication from Paper Crafts Magazine: Holiday Cards & More. This issue holds a special place in my heart – it was in this issue one year ago that I first saw my name in print!
You should have arrived here from Jocelyn’s blog. If you’ve landed here by chance, there is a full list of participants at the bottom of my post!
This issue is a *fun* read. There is such an incredible array of inspiration on every page, and a great variety of project types. If you don’t have it, you need it. No, really.
For today’s hop, we were challenged to use the Simple Sentiment downloads (get yours here!), and incorporate them into a card design. Now, I am a stampy girl – I love the satisfaction of touching polymer to ink and smushing it down onto some cardstock. But these sentiments are so beautiful, it wasn’t hard to put down my blocks!
When I started this card, I decided it might be time to use up some of my hoard stash. So there is a variety of older products used here, but I love how it came together. And can you see that sentiment flag? How adorable is that?
Yeah, one tip for you though – make sure you aren’t running right out of ink when you go to print one of these lovely images out. Ask me how I know… *wink*
I did mention a giveaway, didn’t I? Paper Crafts has generously offered one of my readers a copy of Holiday Cards & More! All you have to do is leave a comment on my post before Tuesday, September 25. I will choose a random winner from the comments that day to receive their free issue!
Your next stop is Clare Prezzia! Here is a whole Hop list for you, so you can be sure you didn’t miss any more inspiration!
Have a great weekend!
