Bright, Bold & Beautiful!


I am so excited to be included in my first-time-ever Blog Hop!  I have been having so much fun hopping along with all of you, I thought it was time I joined in the fun...so, let's go!  If you're following along you should have come from Tammy Hobbs.

The card I made brought out one of my favorite DeNami stamps, the decorative crest, which makes a very bold impression when stamped in a Calypso multicolored ink pad!

I found the border punch a few weeks ago and thought of this stamp right away--so I just had to put the two together.  Then last week I found the cute saying from Memory Box that fit the Blog Hop title, so had to add that too!  The inside is stamped with the same stamp in VersaMark for a great background and small note card to open with the message.



I know you've seen a lot of ideas, but don't forget to add your comment before you go because they are giving away TWO $20 gift certificates to TWO people who comment along the hop! You have until August 13, 2012, 11:59 pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for a prize).

Next you'll be hopping off to Ardyth Percy-Robb.  And if for any reason you feel lost along the way, just head on back to the DeNami Blog for the complete list.  Enjoy!  And thanks for hopping!

    1. Wish I had the patience to die my own ribbon! It's a beautiful old spool of multicolor ribbon I love and use on sparingly! It's fun when old stuff becomes useful with new!
