CSS Treasure Box Blog Hop

Hello!  Today I am teaming up with my friends from the Gina K. Designs Center Stage Alumni as we open up our Treasure Box with you all.  We have decided to pull out our GKD sets and use the sentiments and quotes as the focal image for our projects.  

You should have arrived here from Miesje Flach's awesome blog, if not you can go back to StampTV and start from the beginning. 

I chose to use a quote from the Hang in There set that was illustrated by Theresa Momber.  In addition to this quote, there are several adorable wildlife creatures that are sure to put a smile on your face.  I started with a Green Apple card base and then ran in through the Cuttlebug with a Sizzix embossing folder.  I layered a piece of print paper from October Afternoon to a piece of Sweet Corn cardstock.  The quote is stamped in Tuxedo Black ink onto a cream panel and edged with some Antique Linen distress ink.  The card was finished off with some ribbon and Prima flowers.

Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (June 28th), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs who will get a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95!

Play along with us.....create a card or project using this inspiration image and then post it to the StampTV Forum on the blog hop thread - we'd love to see what you create!!!


Now I am going to send you on to Lori McAree's blog so you can check out her amazing creation. 

I am also entering this card in the CR84FN32 challenge which was to use the colors yellow, aqua and green
See you soon,
