Now, to help promote the card drive, we're hosting a blog hop. We have quite a few fabulous & generous sponsors for the hop (see below for complete list of prizes) and you have the whole weekend to complete the hop. So, make sure you leave your comment by Sunday, Nov. 6, midnight CST. We will pick the winners from comments left on the participants blogs. So, the more blogs you left comment on, the better your chances are.
I made a couple cards for this hop. Here's a look at the first one, using stamps from my favorite companies. The cat is from Penny Black, background from Hero Arts, & sentiment from Papertrey Ink. BTW, Penny Black & Hero Arts were the among the first stamps I owned when I started stamping back in '97. And, yes.... still love them to this day!!
Lots of layers on the cat & wreath image. Looks more 3D if you see it in person. Next, is another CAS card using another favorite of mine, the Lawn Fawn stamps. I used the masking technique for this card & used stardust stickles for the snowy hill.
Now, are you ready to hop? From here, you'll hop to the gal that everyone know as the stamp guru, Jennifer McGuire. I am sure you'll find fab inspiration from her blog.
Here's the complete list of the hop participants:
