Ok then on with the hop - if you have arrived here in blogger land from Becky and want to hop along then you're on the right track and I hope you enjoy what you are about to see, not only from me but from all the participants - each day remember to leave comments as there will be BIG blog candy from Gill and from sponsors of the hop, for what Gill thinks is the most interesting comment and she will announce the winner 2 days after the hop closes.
For this hop I have made 4 cards
For the first one I have used a pearlised cream base card, added some spotty paper to the bottom half and covered the join with white glittered ribbon. The flower was punched twice and joined with a pink brad. The flourish was cut with my Silhouette and sponged with Tattered Rose DI. The sentiment is an old cd stamp.
My 2nd card is a download that took my fancy from Craftsuprint. I have decoupaged it and added an organza bow to the shoe.
The 3rd card is has been printed out from a Joanna Sheen RHS cd and then decoupaged. I matted on to green mirri card and added a vintage ribbon bow. The sentiment was printed on the computer and bowed out to cover the stems.
My last card uses free digi leaf paper from TLC and a stamp from Forever Friends which I coloured with promarkers. The bow is vintage ribbon and the sentiment is an old cd one.
Well I hope you like what I have come up with. Now your next hop stop is http://lilodesigns.blogspot.com/ where you will find another wonderful creation from Alethea
Dont forget to come back for day 2 in this 5 day hop. Thanks for hopping and see you tomorrow:)
