The Craft's Meow New Release Blog Hop!!




Hi everyone!  I want to thank you for joining me this week as I joined the fabulous Design Team over at The Craft's Meow!  It has been such a pleasure to help TCM celebrate their Birthday!  Today we are in the midst of the new release Blog Hop.  You should have arrived from the lady who does vintage so elegantly, Ivana Camdzic.  If you did not, you really need too! 

Today we got to choose any of the sets releasing and use it for our Blog Hop project.  I really needed to get a jump start on some of the other cards I will be needing, so I decided to use Beautiful Spring for my Father's Day card this year.  I decided to do some simple "masking" technique and stamp the leaf image down the side of my image panel. 



Here is the stamp set Beautiful Spring that I've used for my card.



Now get ready for this.........Do you want to win ALL 6 of these new set??  To be eligible, you will need to visit & comment on each blog on the hop!!  If you get lost along the way, make sure to visit The Craft's Meow blog for the full Blog Hop list!  But your next stop is Iwona Palamountain and you don't want to miss what fabulous project she has for inspiration today!  Thanks so much for joining me this week and for all the wonderful comments.....I've enjoyed reading every one of them!
