Stamper's Dream and Friends Blog Hop


The Stamper's Dream Design Team is hopping with some blog friends today, and I'm honored to be amongst those hopping. What an inspirational line-up!! You won't want to miss a stop I assure you. Not only that, Michelle's offering some fabulous blog candy. (I've included a photo at the bottom of the post, along with the hop line-up.)

Lately I've been using softer colors for my cards, so I decided to show my darker side with this card. *grin* I love anything Tim Holtz, and haven't used anything of his for awhile. So I got out my newest papers of his Paper Stash Crowded Attic!! I love the deep rich colors and fabulously fun patterns. For my image, I chose the JustRite set Friendship Blooms. Even my little flower was made with an image from that set and the Spellbinders Blossom 3 die. The little dragonfly charm is from Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden Metal Charms.





Here's the list of hoppers:

Debbie Olson
Becca Feeken
Michelle Rodgers
Laurie Schmidlin
Amy Sheffer
Denise Marzec
Tosh Leyendekker (you are here :)
Mona Pendleton
Cindy Lawrence
Silke Ledlow
Arlene Cuevas
Charmaine Ikach
Mariana Grigsby
Lea Lawson
Joan Ervin
Teresa Kline
Jeanne Streiff
Kellie Fortin
Christina Fischer
Jo Thompson

Here's the blog candy Michelle's giving away. You can win it just by leaving comments as you hop along. She'll announce the blog the candy was hidden on and who the winner is the evening of Thursday, June 16.



That's it for me for today. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a fantastic week!!
Happy Stamping!!
Tosh
