The First Shirleys2Girls Blog Hop - with Blog Candy!

Hello and welcome to the 1st S2G Members Blog Hop sponsored by Shirley's2Girls! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at the S2G Challenge Blog.

The first card I've got to show you is a clean and simple card for a change (ahem the truth is I made a humdinger of a Halloween project, photographed it, posted it off and lost the photos from my hard drive, so this is a late substitute). I've used the fabulous Bee-lieve stamp from Shirleys2Girls stamped direct to a Kraft card. Don't forget, because these are clear stamps you can shape and curve the sentiment. Shape behind the dog is paper pieced and there are co-ordinating punched borders either side of him. My second card is a pop-up, I learnt an easy way to make these just a week ago and I think they're fun! This uses Ghoul Friends, I saw a wonderful project by Karolyn (check it out here) of a light that uses this stamp for a silhouette and thought it would work well for a pop-up. The paper is Basic Grey Eerie, I just have a little of my 12" sheet left now...

Now you've checked out my cards, how about a prize? In addition to the fabulous eye candy, we have decided to hide a prize somewhere along the hop! One pre-selected blogger will draw a random winner from the comments on her post, and the winner will receive a free stamp from Shirley’s2Girls. The fun part is...we're not telling you who it is! So as you hop, make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!! We will announce the winner on Monday in the SNR S2G Forum.Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Deanne's blog , hope you've enjoyed your visit :).
