Wags N' Whiskers Blog Hop and Motivet Sketch Challenge





Well..... it's finally here....Wags N' Whiskers Blog Hop and release day!!! I've heard how much you just love the new images and today they are available to purchase at 12pm GMT/ 7am EST......yay!!

Let's get started with the Blog Hop......if you have arrived here from Michele's blog you are going in the right direction.

There are some awesome prizes to be won, so make sure you comment on all the Diva's Blogs and the Wags N Whiskers Blog to qualify for your chance to win. There will also be 4 Diva's with prizes to give away too.....but which Diva's they are is top secret for now!!!

The beautiful image I have used for my card is "Some Bunny Loves You" by Crissy Armstrong.


I embossed the image with black and painted the bunnies with icicle H2o's and then coloured them with Tombows. I cut out a second flower , added glitter and popped it up.I cut the frames with my nesties. I made the border with my new MS hydrangea border punch. I punched it twice and cut out the flowers, shaped them and popped them up too. The DP is from Basic Grey.

Have fun hop, hop, hopping around!! Your next stop is "Chris"....if you happen to get lost you can go back to the Wags N' Whiskers blog for the main list.

HAVE FUN!!!!





MOTIVET SKETCH CHALLENGE

Happy Friday to you all...it's time again for the Motivet Sketch Challenge. There is another fabulous sketch for you to follow.....don't ya just love it when half the work is done for us, I know I do...!!

The adorable image I am using for my card is "Teddy with Flowers".


I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I cut out a second flower and popped it up. I added some glossy accents on the bee's wings. I used my EK Success retro flower punches and my MS fern punch. I stamped some small leaves on the orange paper and embossed them with clear powder. The gorgeous DP's are from Basic Grey.

I hope you will have time to play along with us this week and for those of you who don't have any Motivet stamps....Stephanie has a free digi image for you to use over on the Motivet Blog. Be sure to pop on over to the Motivet blog as the DT have some beautiful creations to share with you too!!

Have a fabulous day and Thanks so much for stopping by....

Love both these cards, but the bunny one is adorable. His eyes show his adoration, but the whole look on his face says, "I really hope she likes this flower", my personal thought anyway.
