Blog Hop 11!

Holy cow.  Blog Hop 11!  That means that I’ve been participating with this wonderful group of fellow demonstrators for almost a year now.  I almost cannot believe it’s been that long, because it seems like it has been no time at all!

I’ve been a bit out of touch in recent months.  We went through the drama (yes, DRAMA) of staging and selling our home and buying a new one.  Between cleaning and packing and working and unpacking, I almost forgot how to stamp.  LOL.  But now that we’re all settled, ok mostly settled, I am jumping back into the game.


This month’s theme is Holidays in July — with a twist.  What is this twist, you ask?  We had to create a holiday card using non holiday items.  This was REALLY hard for me!  I had all of these ideas in my head, but when it came time to translate those ideas into a paper craft, my brain and my hands did not cooperate.

This was my first attempt:


I love color combo of Emerald Envy, Rich Razzleberry, and Mint Macron.  I love that darn chicken.  In my head, the trees made it “holiday-ish.” In reality, not so much.  SO, back to the drawing board, so to speak.

Here is my 2nd attempt:


I went back to what I’m comfortable with, both with color and content.  LOL.  A Smoky Slate Foxy Friends fox, a little Island Indigo scalloped circle, some Foxy Friends DSP for accent, and a Pool Party base embossed with Softly Falling TIEF.  I did cheat a little — I couldn’t *not* do something holiday related, so I used the December Paper Pumpkin for the pretty scripted Merry Christmas stamp.

Now, let’s take a look at what our next friend created.  Hop on over, (yes, that pun was intended) to Rebecca Urban’s blog by clicking
