Sew Many Cards Jan 2010 New Release Blog Hop!!!!

Welcome to the first blog hop of 2010 for Sew Many Cards!!! If you arrived here from Jessica's site then you are on the right track. If not, you can start the blog hop at the beginning by clicking here. I love this image of Halen peeking over the fence as it is so versatile. I stamped friends forever from a Fiskars greeting set I had on hand but you could personalize this however you want. The great thing about digital images is that you can size them to fit the project you are working on. In this case, I sized him to a height of 2 inches using Word as this is an A2 card. Wouldn't this be cute if you knew someone who just got a new bunny ???? You could use this as a gift bag topper on a bag of bunny treats! So many possibilities with this image.... I started my card with a base of Gina K's pure luxury cardstock in cranberry tart....loving this cardstock. I then used a layer of wood patterned paper from Frances Meyer which I distressed with my handy dandy Heidi Swapp edge distresser. I added a layer of burgundy patterned paper from Autumn Leaves which I cut with my scalloped rectangle nestie. My image is colored with copic markers and then I added a mixturer of prima and Imaginisce flowers I had on hand. I added some skittles to the centers of the white flowers and a button with twine to the other and my card was complete.
Now for what you really want to know......yes....there is some awesome blog candy!!!
