Stamp Something - Blog Hop

Blog hop is over now. A winner has been chosen and will be announced friday AM. Thank you all!!

Happy Friday!!

Thank goodness blogger is up and running again as today we are celebrating our 3rd year anniversary at Stamp Something! I hope you are ready for a fun filled blog hop with lots of prizes along the way!

If you arrived here from Annika's amazing blog you are in the right place. If not you will want to go to the Stamp Something challenge blog to start hopping.

For my card I used one of my own images "Sammy Squirrel eats strawberries", hand drawn by my husband. It is available here at Digital Stamp Oasis along with several other cute squirrel image and some others too. The images are always $2 each for 1 to 4 digis, $1 each for 5 or more digis, or you can purchase all images for $10.

Here is my card.

I colored the image using derwent coloursoft pencils and blended with baby oil. Papers are from my stash, I think they are by bo bunny. I used some paper and fabric flowers, punched leaves and ribbon as embellishments. To finish it off I did so me sewing with my janome mini. The sentiment is from Sugar Nellie.

The prize from my blog is your choice of 4 digistamps from
