Prickley Pear Spring/Summer 2014 Hop, Day 2!


It has finally come....the moment we can reveal the Prickley Pear Spring/Summer 2014 collection!

We are celebrating with a 3 day blog hop event!  Join us each day as our new Design Team showcases the new product!  As always, leave comments on each and every blog post along the way since there will be one winner selected for each day's comments!  We will select our winners on April 20 and they will be announced on April 21 in our Monday inspiration post!

If you have arrived from Tracy's blog, you are right on track!  If not, skip back to the beginning and start HERE!



I stamped the small paw print randomly on the background panel and then hand stitched the panel to my card.  I stamped the larger paws on white cardstock and then distressed them with Spiced Marmalade and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink before fussy cutting them and popping them up on foam tape.  Flowers are cut from designer paper scraps, stamped and embellished with a white gel pen.

This is the last hop stop today.  Thank you for hopping with us and leaving love along the way!  It means a lot to our designers to hear from their blog visitors!

I almost cried seeing that. As a dog owner I just have to say "beautiful" and hope I won't be seeing more of those in the near future.

Such a wonderful sentiment for anyone who loses a special pet companion. I don't recall seeing one of these stamps anywhere else before - so many of our friends and family have pets and this would be perfect for so many.
Thank you for the hop and the chance to win some goodies Karen x
