The Stamping Boutique Free Style Blog Hop 11th to 13th November



Hi everyone and welcome to The Stamping Boutique Blog Hop which is being run for the entire weekend to give you plenty of time to hop!!! You will have lots of lovely inspiration from the team using the wonderful images from Tracey. So you have from 12:01 am EST on 11th until November 13th at 11:59 pm EST .
You should have arrived here from the wonderfully talented Sandy.
Here is my creation using The Fairy Serenity


and here is a closeup.........


I have coloured the fairy with Promarkers and a little sprinkling of glitter!!! The paper is from K&Company but not sure of the name of the pad. The card I have embossed with the large polka dots and cut  a border with my recently purchased Martha Stewart punch was from Create and Craft. The tag was made using a Marianne die cut inked with distress inks, sprayed with glimmer mist and stamped with an Inkadinkado sentiment stamp. The ribbon is recycled from the ribbon you get on some tops you buy to keep the tops on the hangars!

Now more about the hop........
Each one of the team will be allowed to randomly pick one commenter from our blog to win (1) FREE image from TSB. The winner will be selected on Monday, November 14th and posted on my blog and
The Stamping Boutique blog.

The GRAND PRIZE will be a set of the newly released Smoochies - that's 11 images and you can see them here. In order to be in with a chance of this prize you must comment on every DT members post and the blog post. So what are you waiting for here is the order and have fun!!
