Welcome! ~ Velkommen!
Here, in my little corner of bloglandia, is my blog about my crafts. Until recentley I've blogged about my card making. Now, in 2011, I'll try to do different things also, such as sewing (patchwork), knitting, crochet, baking, along with some card making...

Blog Hop ~ I Brake For Stamps

This blog hop is a shout-out & Thank You to Della of I Brake For Stamps (IBFS) who is a huge behind the scenes helper for Susana's Custom Art & Card Design - she makes all the stamps!
All the DT's blogs feature a different project featuring a stamp from Della's store, so make sure and hop all the way through the end.

For one lucky HOPPER there will be a prize, but you have to leave a comment on every blog in order for a chance to win - also at the store blog - there will be a question for you to answer! The lucky winner will be picked randomly from comments left on one of the DT's blogs - but it's a MYSTERY which blog it will be!
The prize up for grabs is a brand new Ranger Heat Gun - it heats quickly & does NOT blow your embossing powder around - it's FANTASTIC - and 4 IBFS stamps!

There's even more:
Della at I Brake For Stamps is generously offering 15% off all purchases at her store, expires the 16th. The coupon code is BLOGHOP and it's for IBFS store ONLY! ***(NOT at SCACD!)***
Only 4 days to use it so whatcha waiting for!!!

Now go get hoppin'!! The first blog on this blog hop is Suzanne's.






When I was asked to go to Della's fabulous store to choose a stamp to use on my card for this blog hop, I really got excited! And - WOW - it was not an easy task to pick just one, there are so many wonderful stamps to look at! Finally I ended up with this little darling, #RBG130 Girl Praying. This image is also to be found at a stamp sheet along with a little praying boy and sentiments, click HERE to see it.

I decided to do a different type of card today than what I usually do. I have looked at this kind of card folding in my friend Marianne's blog, she's a big inspiration source! {hugs} I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and the sentiment is computer generated.



















Other things I've used are: Nestabilities dies, Bosskut die,Kaisercraft pearls, buttons, ribbon and flowers from my stash, Scrapper's Floss, a Fiskars edge punch, EK Success leaf punch, and I made some simple beaded pins.


Thanks for looking at my card! Smiley from millan.net
