The Twinery/Market Street Stamps Blog Hop!

Today is going to be a great day here on the 'ole blog.  Today is the first day of The Twinery and Market Street Stamps Blog Hop!!!  If you arrived here from Katrina's blog then you are in the right place.  If not, you need to start back at The Twinery or Market Street Blog for details of the blog hop.

The first card I created was using the FABULOUS background stamp from Market Street Stamps: Sweet Lace.  Just look at the details in this one background stamp!  I am in love and this background will definitely get some major use in my cardmaking!  My sentiment is from Comforting Florals.  Here I've used some Blossom twine from The Twinery for a simple but effective wrap in place of the traditional bow.




For my second card I went a little more bold and colorful to get in more yummy colors of this awesome twine.  Here I've used the set: So Happy from MSS and created my own little floral flower bed.  I stamped the flowers and embellished the centers with tiny twine bows in Maraschino, Pink Sorbet, and Lemondrop.



I then wanted to point out my grass.  I found it very easy to make my own grass out of the Honeydew twine when you place 1/8" Scor-tape down and then start forming your grass.  For good measure, I placed a few horizontal strips over my grass again using Scor-tape. 




Would you like to know if there are prizes to be had?  Well, you all are in luck.  The Twinery is generiously giving away one Ultimate Sampler Pack ($25 value) and Market Street Stamps is giving away a $25 Shopping Spree! 



You must visit each blog, each day and leave a comment to be eligible for either prize.  Deadline for the prize giveaway is Friday, November 25.  Prize winners will be drawn at random and be announced on Saturday, November 26 on both The Twinery and Market Street Stamps blogs.  Thank you so much for stopping by today and now your next stop is  Linda
