Sweet 'n Sassy Meets the Twinery - Blog Hop!

Today I'm excited to be participating in the Design Team blog hop between Sweet n' Sassy Stamps and the Twinery!

You should start the hop at The Twinery  if you came here from Tifany DeGough then you are in the right place!

See below how you can have a chance at winning a prize!



This little lady bug makes ME smile - isn't she the cutest!  I stamped her on white, die cutting with a circle Nestability.  I colored her with Copics and added some tiny twinkles to her smile and antenae!

I wrapped the twine to get 3 loops on each side, then adhered it to the back of the lady bug circle.  I layered that to a black scallop die cut circle.  I embossed another circle on the card and layered the image onto the frame with foam tape.  I thought the loops of twine gave the impression of wings, although I didn't try to make them even or in a straight line.  Then I simply stamped the sentiment directly on the card.

So here are the details on how and what you can win!

There will be TWO prizes awarded from those who leave comments on all participating blogs. 

The Twinery will give away to one winner:
One Ultimate Color Sampler Pack (retail value $25)





Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps will give away to one winner:
One Season of Change Stamp & Die Set (retail value $28)


Deadline to hop/leave comments is 11:59 EST, Saturday Oct 22nd
Winners will be announced at the Sweet 'n Sassy Blog  and The Twinery on Sunday, Oct 23rd.

Next stop on the hop is  Hera Frei

Thanks for stopping by -   and Good Luck!
