Stamp TV's CSS November Alumni 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 Kay Simmons has given us this beautiful inspiration photo and if you are hopping through the blogs, you arrived here from Kay's wonderful blog (-:

mmmm   mmmm mmmmmm love these warm colors!
and that's what I went with...the colors

using GKD set by Theresa Momber "Farm Life"
used GKD  cardstock, ribbon and designer paper, sponged/stamped with Memento - Rich Cocoa, Dandelion, Pottters Clay, Toffee Crunch and Black.  
Copics used: YG63, N1, 4, 6...E09, 35, 55
scalloped oval cut with Cameo
hand doodled with Copic black liner around scallop edge

Only one card from me this hop - a little under the weather with nagging sinus infection (ewwwwww gross! right) that wont go away...
so now you are off to the blog of my ultra talented team mate Miesje Flach  

If at any time you get confused as to where you are in the hop, you can always pop over to STV and see the list of all the designers participating.

Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (Nov 13), 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!!

now enjoy the hop (-:
hugs

oh hon, my thoughts and prayers for you and your grandkids go out, bless their hearts!

Linda, I didn't know you were sick, and the whole family, too! So sorry to hear that, but wishing health for all of you.
It appears that my two granddaughters have whooping cough, even though they were immunized. I hear it is going around now, darn it! And they cough so hard it makes them vomit. FYI, so that your family can check this out. There are antibiotics for it.
Sending better health hugs,
Penny

Patricia St Martin said...

Linda, so sorry sweetie that you are not doing so good, you take care of yourself and your little ones. It is so hard when they get sick it always goes though the hole family.
Sending hugs
Patricia

Oh the poor littles -- it is so awful being sick when you are small.
You hang in there too! :)

Thanks for answering "my question" re the photos. Goes to show you how people just look at the photos... I am a culprit of that myself~ sheesh

Vicki Dutcher said...

Fabulous coloring as usual!

Miesje said...

Oh, so pretty! Love the "warm colors". I love that stamp set too!

Jennie said...

Beautiful card Linda! Love the coloring on the wheel and such a serene scene you created. Nice doodling too...I forget that fun little technique (I guess it is a tech, lol!) Hope you get to feeling better my friend!!

Theresa Momber said...

Off the charts coloring, Linda! I'm crazy in love with this card. It's gorgeous. I hope you feel better asap!!!

Cheri said...

I hope you feel better soon, Linda. Sinus infections are often times worse than a cold. Your card is a stunner. I love the doodled edges....I could never make that look right but yours is fabulous and looks great on your design. Your coloring is stunning.

Kay S said...

Rosy Newlun said...

Oh, Linda - what a gorgeous card - love your sponged background and coloring! Get better soon - I've had a sinus infection since August, spreading to other side of head now. Yuck. Oh, well, I can empathize -- you did great feeling ill though!

joy said...
