New Release Blog Hop at Crafty Sentiments

Hello there! Are you ready for a blog hop?

New Release

Welcome to the Crafty Sentiments Hop Meeting Molly - 
we shall be sharing with you some brand new stamps and giving you the chance to win some!!  There are also a couple of 3 month GDT spots up for grabs -All you need to do is join our fab hop you have until the 23rd to hop along .Please remember to leave a comment on everyones blog and finally finish on the crafty sentiments inspirations blog, let us know you have hopped and tell us your favourite stamp - if of course you could choose just one - Have fun - don't forget the first day was yesterday.

The blog hop list for this second day is:

So if you're hopping you should have come here from Susan and should be moving on to Shazza next. 

Here's my card:

Molly is looking very retro here - the colours are the same as my mum and dad had in their kitchen in the  seventies - nice!!! It was of course all the rage at the time! The image has been coloured with promarkers and fussycut. I have used spellbinders dies to cut the oval and two crafty Cutters dies - one to make the rolled flowers and another to make the lacy edge die cut. The sentiment is LOTV.

I'll try to add some more pictures soon - my computer keeps crashing - so hopefully more to come! It perhaps feels a little like me - I had to cancel my run today - my back is not good today - I'm hoping its not my new running shoes that have caused it - I can't think of anything specific that I've done! Oh well! Hopefully a few days off and I'll be okay!!!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

MAWTTmovingalongwiththetimes: Photo inspiration - eggs and green
Ribbon Girltheribbongirlchallengeblog: Green

Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you again soon - if you're hopping hop on to Shazza.

Big Hugs to you!

Rachel xx
