Blog Hop Today!!

Hello friends!!!

Welcome to my stop on the Sweet 'n Sassy September New Release Blog Hop!! Today I'm featuring the wonderful sentiment set Blessings and Thanks and I even have a challenge for you, so you could win a set of your own!!

I was late making the card for the hop, so yesterday, when Korin sent this adorable new Cocoa Mouse digi, I just *had* to color him up for my blog hop card. I love the sentiments in this set, but they look lonely on a card all by themselves!!

I colored Cocoa with Copics and used some Marvy circle and scalloped circle punches to mat him. The sketch is from the Everybody Art Challenge blog, and the paper is from a K&Co mat pack. The sentiment is from the new clear set Blessings and Thanks, which is one I obviously *had* to have since I sign all my correspondence, 'Blessings!'. Here's another card using the set that I posted a few days ago...


So, here's how to win your very own set. Make a card that has flowers as an embellishment and link it here in the comments before Midnight (central time), on Saturday, September 4th. If you use Sweet n Sassy images - clear or digital - I'll even put your name in twice!! Be sure to check back on Monday the 6th to see if you won!! :-)

Now off you go! Here's the whole blog list so you don't get lost...

Blessings!

Tricia
