Flower Soft/Impression Obsession Blog Hop



Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope you are having a magnificent week! After two and a half weeks of radiation I am still sleepy and so tired but this too shall pass...so for now let's just play and enjoy the day!!!

Welcome to the Flower Soft/Impressions Obsession Blog Hop and I know you will find so much inspiration as you hop along. If you have arrived here first, please begin at the Flower Soft Blog for all of your instructions. If you have arrived here from Gini's blog then you are well on your way. As you make your way through the hop be sure to comment on each and every posting since there will be 4 prize winners chosen randomly among the various participating blogs. Two $25 gift certificates will be awarded from Flower Soft and two $25 gift certificates will be awarded from Impression Obsession. All prize winners will be announced on the Flower Soft Blog and the Impression Obsession Blog on Wednesday, August 18. Good luck to everyone!!

For my card, I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is PTI Raspberry Fizz and New Leaf, and all DP is Printworks and Best Creation Inc--a gift from the very talented Suzan..Thank you so much, Sweetie!! All background panels are machine stitched. I also used Clowning Around by Belles 'n Whistles to set the scene for my use of Flower Soft and for the wonderful sentiment stamps I selected from Impression Obsession. My image was colored with Copics and the flower in her hand is covered with Raspberry Fizz Ultra Fine Flower Soft. To ground the image I used hand cut grass and additional flat flowers covered with the same Flower Soft and centered with pearls. The sentiment is from the magnificent Mini Messages by Impression Obsession which I placed on double nesties on another flat flower tipped in Flower Soft. To finish the front I added a ribbon and flat bow using PTI Raspberry Fizz dotted ribbon.

The inside is quite simple but I did use another Mini Message and a "LAUGH" charm to complete the cheerfulness of the card!



Be sure to leave your comments as you visit each blog so that you will be in for the prize drawings. Your next stop is a visit to Rosemary Marino at the Impression Obsession Blog. Good Luck and hope to see you again real soon!!

Thank you so much for dropping by today. Please mark your calendar for Friday for the Really Reasonable Ribbon Hop where you will find some very nice surprises. Have a delightful day and ENJOY!!!! Big hugs from me to you!!
