The Craft's Meow December Release Blog Hop!

Hi and welcome to The Craft's Meow Release Blog Hop! If you came from The Craft's Meow Store Blog, you are on the right track. I am the first stop of the hop. Here is what I came up with for the hop.


I once again used Nina's Sent with Love for my card. I just adore this beautiful collage!


The image is stamped on a piece of Rustic Cream cardstock, colored with Copic markers and trimmed to size. It's then matted with a piece of Dark Chocolate cardstock with a die cut pinking shear edge before I tie on the ribbon.


The card base is embossed with Damask Texture Fade. I then inked the edges with Fresh Snow and Chamomile inks.

Also the big Clearance Sale is still going on at The Craft's Meow. Quantities are limited and won't be re-stocked, so go and check them out!



That's all for now. It's time to send you to Amy's blog. Don't forget to leave a comment on the blog hop post over at The Craft's Meow Store Blog for a chance to win all SEVEN new stamp sets released today! You have until Friday, December 9th at 9:00 pm Pacific to enter to win. Have fun hopping and good luck! =)
