Welcome to my blog. Over the years that I have been stamping and paper crafting, I have so often been inspired by the ideas on other sites and blogs. I hope I can pay that back in some measure with my own. (In between laughs -- or cackles as my son calls it!)

Scavenger Hunt Blog Hop

Blog Hop Badge
Welcome to the Crafter's Companion Scavenger Hunt Blog Hop!

I'm so happy you hopped by today - if you got to me, I'm your twelfth stop and you are almost done hopping with your tired fingers. (If you haven't started the blog hop yet, see below for the order.)

Before you finish the blog hop, I wanted to share the project I made for you today. It is a 5.5 inch square card using an image from Sheena Douglass' "Busy Doing Nothing" set. I dusted off my colored pencils for this one, they have been sorely neglected lately. The card assembly is easy - just layers of designer paper (on which I used embossing folders for extra interest), a scalloped border punch, and some lacy ribbon.  I added three tiny butterflies with pearls and glitter for the final touch.

Now let's get back to the Scavenger Hunt. Here is your twelfth and final clue: 
Who hops and wears a cute blue jacket?

Your next step is to leave a comment on my blog, and then hop over to the Crafter's Companion Store to find the answers. After you have found the answers to the twelve questions, you will then post that you finished the blog hop on the Crafter's Companion Information blog, and finally put the answers in an email to Bindy at bindy@crafterscompanion.com .

If you do that and follow the other requirements you will be entered into the drawing to win the Grand Prize which is the entire Peter the Rabbit Collection of Stamp Sets, a total of nine stamp sets!
