SCACD blog hop!

Yay, it's Friday!  Thx to all of you for your sweet comments on my very first tutorial on blonde hair yesterday!  And I have something special for you today too!  We're having a small blog hop for the 'It's A New Day' Stamp release from Susana's Custom Art And Card Design!
The Quixotic Paperie design team have the honour of joining up with the SCACD design team for a surprise blog hop to celebrate the new release of some lovely stamps from Elisabeth Bell, Carmen  Medlin and Victoria Case.  And read on if you want the chance of winning a prize!

If you have hopped here from the very talented Colleen Holmes then you are on the right track.  If not then pop on over to Suzanne Dean's blog Scrap Bitz to start.  
For my card I have used Elizabeth Bell's Blowing Kisses and you can find her here in the Quixotic Paperie store.  What do you think...


This little lady really bring outs my maternal instincts - I need to cuddle something!! Where are my dogs...!! As soon as I saw her I knew I wanted to create a shabby chic style card. I used the delicate flower design paper from Memory Box's Pixie and my Whimsy Ticket die with matching Whimsy Ticket sentiment stamp set. I finished it with some luscious 8mm flatted backed pearls.

So wanna win a prize?  Check out the SCACD store blog Follow Your Heart and the SCACD facebook page where you can join in to be in with a chance to win! 



For those of you in the UK and EU you can get this and the other lovely 'It's A New Day' stamps from Quixotic Paperie. For those of you in Canada and USA check out Susana's Custom Art And Card Design!

Thanks for visiting me today!  You now need to hop off to the lovely Lori Aragon!
