Team Blog Hop #16


It is March and it is time for a new Team Blog Hop.

You will have arrived from Sharon's blog and we hope you are enjoying the team creations.

Our team challenge this month is a sketch


Here is my take of the sketch:


I just adore the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP, so this is the paper I used for this card.

The sentiment is just perfect also and is from the Parisian Beauty stamp set. It reads:
"Follow your heart, it will take you to incredible places"

A little bit of Linen Thread and I really like how this card turned out.

If you get lost along the way here is a list of the all the team:

Meighan - you are here!

Continue to enjoy the blog hop as you are off to visit Elizabeth next.

Any questions along the way please ask anyone in the team.

Sharing with you my card created for the new challenge at Southern Girls and
if you get a chance please join us!

Our theme: Anything Goes

I have recently been playing with some Alcohol Inks.  I had forgotten how much fun it is just getting messy and trying different colour combinations.

So for my card I have used one of the pieces I created and made a birthday card for my sister.

Here is my card: 



Not only have I used the Alcohol Inks but I also brought out my heating tool and heat embossed the sentiment something I haven't done for ages.

The beautiful die is from the SU Delicate Lace die set.

Here is another look at the card: 


The colours of  the inks is dark but I really like the touch of lighter colours and metallic silver.

The sentiment is from the SU Magnolia Blooms stamp set.

 Have a super day!
