Stamp TV's CSS Alumni Blog Hop

Hi there, welcome to our monthly blog hop - this month we've been given another awesome sketch from Melissa Cash!

Now you should have come from Kay's  gorgeous blog...but if you not and you want to start at the beginning, go here to STV.



I really enjoyed this sketch - pulled out Theresa's new set "Dogwood and Butterfly"....love love love!
All cardstock, ribbon and button is from GKD and ink is Memento Sky, Danube Blue and Bamboo.
Copics are B29, YG63
Cuttlebug EF...paper pieced the butterfly on bottom card and MS leaf punch

Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (January 17), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that person will receive a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps!

next stop is our awesome sketch designer Melissa .

NOTE: Having blogger issues with my commenting and some followers are telling me that they are having trouble leaving comments on my blog. I downloaded FireFox and have been able to comment using that server. Hope Blogger fixes its issues with Internet Explorer soon...so hope this doesnt interfere with opportunity to leave your comment to be entered in the selection for the Grab Bag win...guess for this hop its more important than before to comment on as many blogs as you have the time to do...

hugs,
