Sew Many Cards New Release Blog Hop!!


Welcome to the Sew Many Cards New Release Blog Hop!! We are so glad you could join us this week for a chance to see Angela's new releases and a chance at winning some great prizes!!! We'd like to say hello and welcome to all of our new followers, welcome back to all our supporters and a huge THANK YOU to all of you for a wonderful first month at our new challenge blog! Our sponsors this month are Wags N'Whiskers and Simon Says Stamps!

To win a $25 gift certificate to the Wags N' Whiskers Store and a new release stamp from Wags N' Whiskers you MUST comment on EACH design team members blog. We realize we have a large team, but it will be well worth the hop to see all of our team's great projects and our sponsors awesome prizes! Here is a little information about Lacey Stephens, owner of Stamp and Create and the donor of the above mentioned gift certificate:
I was a stay at home mom for 7 years so stamping was a great way for some "Mommy time". But after stamping for over 2 years, my hobby became my obsession...so my obsession became my dream! Now I own an on-line store! Stamp and Create is a new on-line story carrying many popular brands of stamps, paper, and embellishments including: Wags 'N Whiskers Rubber Stamps, High Hopes Stamps, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, Whiff of Joy, Stampavie, Penny Black, The Greeting Farm, Basic Grey, 7 Gypsies, Shimmerz, Nestabilities (always 20% off), charms and more!! I am always adding new items to the store...so check it out at http://www.stampandcreate.com/.


Would you like to win a $10 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp and the ENTIRE line of Sew Many Cards new releases....then we have a special challenge this week for you during our blog hop...You will find all the details on the last stop of our hop!!

I am so excited to get to play with this new Duncan image! I think he is the cutest duckiest little ducky I've ever seen!!! I "lifted" my layout from this wonderful card here. If you haven't perused Laurie's blog - it is so worth the time as she makes some BEAUTIFUL cards. I used Microsoft Word to size my image to a height of 2.2" and then colored it with copics. I wanted a more distressed look to mine so I distressed the edges of the green layer which both that and the other patterned paper are from the Fancy Pants Happy Holidays pack. I used Gina K's pure luxury cardstock in sweet corn for my base and some green gingham ribbon from American Crafts for accent. I printed my sentiment from the computer using the Curlz MT font in 18 and after inking it up added some Memory Box gold pearl stickers.

Please stop by each of the design team members blogs and leave a friendly comment, and be sure to leave us an email or link to your blog when you finish the hop at our challenge blog! You should have arrived here from Ceal's blog - if so - then your next stop is Mary D's blog.
