The Craft's Meow Mid-Month Release Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to The Craft's Meow Mid-Month Release Blog Hop! If you find your way here from Nina Brackett's blog, you are on the right track. If not, you would want to start the hop at the TCM Blog. Also don't forget to leave comments along the way for some awesome prizes! Here is my card for the hop:


I used the adorable Little Frieda at the Seashore stamp for my card. She is ready to spend a beautiful day at the beach!


Little Frieda is colored on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock with Copic makers. It's then cut and embossed with a Standard Circles Large die. The sentiment piece is cut and embossed with a Petite Ovals Small die.


The patterned paper is from the Emma's Shoppe collection by Crate Paper. There are three sentiments in this mini stamp set and it's available starting today at The Craft's Meow along with Little Frieda & Lulu - My Girl, two card kits created by Jessica Fick and one card kit created by me. Here is a look of my card kit.


That's all I have. Don't forget to leave a comment on each designer's blog for a chance to win some fabulous prizes! You have until Tuesday, May 17th at 10:00 p.m. PST to complete the hop and leave your comments for the prize drawing.

Your next stop is Julia Aston. Just in case there is a broken link along the way, you can always find the hopping list, reveals of all that's being released and  prize details at The Craft's Meow Store Blog.

Have a beautiful day and have fun hopping! =)
