FTHS August Blog Hop



Good morning; it's time for From the Heart Stamps August Blog Hop!  Our theme is "Use Your Stash"; sounds fun, right?!

As you hop along, please leave a comment on each entry.  One random commentor will be selected on each blog to win an image of choice from the FTHS Store.  Plus, one lucky commentor on the FTHS Blog has a chance to win a $15 voucher!

If you have arrived from From the Heart Stamps you are in the right place, if not why don't you start there so that you don't miss anything?

I've used Party Hat Birdbrain; she's colored with pencils and accented with glitter.  Don't you just love the look on her face?  She's a hoot!  I've done some simple layering and embellished with a twine/button combo.  

Old Stash: Twine, Buttons
New Stash: Doodlebug Paper, Gina Marie Designs Die (I love how the x's coordinate with the twine/button.)

Here's a close-up:

Your card is so cheerful and fun, Angela! I love how your coloring matches the pattern papers so perfectly! I am excited to see you using a Gina Marie Designs die! She is a personal friend of mine, and I always tease her about how I know someone famous now that her dies, stamps and embossing folders are becoming so popular!
