Happy Monday! If you're following the Bows and Berries blog hop, you should be coming from Janet's blog. Or, you can start at the beginning from the Bows and Berries site. The B&B site also gives details on the digis you can win from the blog hop and the current challenge.
For biweekly challenge, we're all using this month's freebie Toasty Gingerbread Man stamp (check out the Bows and Berries blog to download this little guy). I wanted to create a scene with the gingerbread man, so here's the card I came up with:
There were about a zillion steps to this card (making a template, die cutting, glittering, misting, printing the stamp, masking, coloring, fussy cutting, etc.)...I'm surprised I wasn't raiding the recycling can to make my own cardstock. In the end, I realized I forgot to put on a sentiment, but I couldn't bring myself to start over. So just imagine a good sentiment, okay?
Here's a close-up of the B&B gingerbread man:
Want a chance to win some free digis and see a variety of uses for this little guy? Join the hop and comment along the way.
To join in the current Bows and Berries challenge, you'll need to use the gingerbread stamp to make anything you want...no rules as long as you use the freebie stamp. You have until midnight (GMT) on December 11th to link up your project on the Bows and Berries blog.
Robin also has 50% off everything in her shop if you use the coupon code "GIFT50." Check out the Bows and Berries site to see what she has.
Next up in the hop is the fabulous Kasia!
For my regular readers, I apologize for being so absent from blog world lately. I've been working on a large, short-notice project for work everyday for about 10 days (working on Thanksgiving blows). I'm getting close to the end, but it's been a lot of late nights and has pretty much zapped all of my free time (and creativity). So I'm terribly sorry for not visiting your blogs--you all mean so much to me, and I feel bad when I can't visit. I miss seeing what you're up to!
Thanks for looking! Have a great week!
