The Craft's Meow Release Blog Hop

This is my second post of the day. Please click here to see my post for Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #67. Thanks! =)

Hi and welcome to The Craft's Meow November Release Blog Hop! If you came from The Craft's Meow Store Blog, you are on the right track. If not, you can start the blog hop here. You wouldn't want to miss what the design team members created using the new stamps released today!


I used Vintage Ornament set for my card. How about a non-traditional color holiday card? =) The snowflake ornament image is stamped on watercolor paper with Tumbled Glass and Victorian Velvet distress inks with spritz of water. The sentiment is stamped with Rusty Hinge distress ink.


This and six other new sets are available staring today at The Craft's Meow. I am also sending this card to the Cards That Care card drive. This card drive collects holiday cards for the elders living in nursing homes. Please see this post for all the details. Thanks to Vera Yates and Jennifer McGuire for putting the card drive together!

That's all from me. It's time to send you to Amy's Blog. I can't wait to see what she created for the hop! Don't forget to leave a comment on the blog hop post at The Craft's Meow Store Blog for a chance to win a set of SEVEN new stamp sets that's being release today! You have until Thursday, November 3rd 9:00pm PDT to enter. Good luck and have fun hopping! =)
