Blog Hop!

It’s time for The Stamping Boutique‘s Blog Hop!  I hope you’ll join in the fun!  It will run all weekend, ending on Sunday, November 13th (11:59 pm CST) to allow you plenty of time to hop.

**If you have come here from Stacie’s blog, then you are on the right track.  If not, please head over to Christy’s blog to start at the beginning (You can also see the complete blog hop order at end of this post).

With any hop, there has to be something to win, right?  You will want to be sure to visit each design team member’s blog and leave a comment as each one will be giving away one TSB image!

If that isn’t enough to entice you to hop with us, maybe this will:  1 random person (who comments on all the DT blogs and leaves a final comment on the Stamping Boutique blog) will be selected to win the entire set of the newest line of images called the Smoochies!  How is that for a great prize?!  There are currently 11 images in the Smoochies line!  (You can see them HERE.)

I chose to use this adorable image called Nesting Doll 2 for my card.  I used pinks, purple, green and yellow on her, but I can envision her in Christmas colors too!   Isn’t she sweet?!  The Sweet Threads paper from Basic Grey was just perfect for creating a background for her!

Stamps – The Stamping Boutique (Nesting Doll 2 – digital), Hero Arts (sentiment)
Paper – Basic Grey DP (Sweet Threads), SU Melon Mambo, Regal Rose CS, Copic Blending Card (main image)
Ink – SU Melon Mambo (sentiment)
Accessories – pink gemstones, yellow mulberry paper mini roses, foam circles (popped up sentiment & main image)
Coloring – Copic markers

Now head on over to April’s blog!

Below is the hop order in case you get lost along the way:
