Stamp TV's August CSS Alumni Blog Hop

Hi there
  it's that time of the month again when the STV Center Stage Alumni brings you a Hop and YOU have the chance to win a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs stamps... oh yeahhhhh

  For this month's Hop, our awesome team mate Geri Utterback has given us this beautiful inspiration photo
now as you're hopping ...you should have come from the wonderfully talented blog of Kay Simmons and if not, you can start at the beginning of the hop from STV.

For my first card, I chose to use Theresa Momber's set "Wild About You".
used the "direct to paper" technique for the sky...thinking I need to practice that more. Paper pieced the giraffe and used Viva Pearl Pen for my pearls. Cardstock is GKD's Wine and All Spruced Up".

My next two cards are going to the family of Barb Colbert who passed away earlier this month. Barb and I were on Marks Finest Paper Design Team together. She was such a sweet lady and we became good cyber buddies. I last heard from Barb two weeks before she went home to the Lord. Her outlook was positive and she felt confident she would not be in the Rehab section of the hospital too very long....My heart goes out to her brother and family and her niece.

Both of these cards were created using Melanie Muenchinger's "Wild Heart" and 
GKD's designer paper and cardstock

Barb loved butterflies and flowers and color!
well that's it for me!!

now hop over to the awesome blog of teammate Melissa Cash and see what gorgeousness she's created 

 Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (Aug 28th), 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!

Enjoy the Hop!
hugs, 

PS I've also entered both cards for Barb in the Moxie Fab World's Repetition Challenge .

Exquisite cards, truly gorgeousness. I am so sorry to know Barb passed away. While I didn't know her, I know many did. My heart is hurting for Lynn who was in our group. Stamping has many huge voids when these loved ones are gone from us. <3

Beautiful cards, Linda. I am happy to hear that you and Barbara were *cyber buddies* :) We chatted a few times on STV and she was an absolute dear to me! I will miss her and have also created cards for her Brother and Sister In Law and her Niece. I know she loved her chalks and I just have a vision of her surrounded in a colorful cloud of chalk dust, that's how I will remember her! xo~
