Softpencil Studios Blog Hop

Hi Everyone! I am SO thrilled to be taking part in Round 2 of the Softpencil Blog Hop!! Once upon a time, I was fortunate enough to spend a few short months as a guest on Elizabeth's Design Team, so when she asked if I'd like to be a part of the hop to celebrate her anniversary and the relaunch of her digital stamps, I jumped all over it!

You should be coming here from Melissa's blog. If you are lost, or would like to start at the very beginning, either go back to the Softpencil blog, or I have a full list at the end of this post.

My card uses Amy with Flowers. She is such a sweet girl! She'd be really fun to paper piece, but I put her in a yellow top and jeans, since that is the type of outfit my girls wear. I used the April Sketch for You to Try and paired it with some wonderful Basic Grey Picadilly papers in lovely Spring Colours. She's layered onto a Spellbinders die and popped up for a little dimension.
Now you'll want to head over to Michelle's blog. Don't forget to leave comments along the way. Not only do we all love to hear what our readys have to say, but there will be prizes. Here is the information, directly from Elizabeth's blog:
• I´ll be choosing a random winner (through from the players who complete the blog hop, who´ll receive a gift certificate of $15 for my shop... and a surprise!
• All the players who participate by leaving their comments on each blog will receive a free digi-stamp of their choice. Yes! only leave a comment on each blog and win a digi-stamp! Write me at to let me know you comment on all the blogs.
• And there is a "mystery blog" so all the girls who leave a comment on that blog will be entered on a drawing to win a digi-stamp... and a little surprise too!

Pretty cool, right? Elizabeth is not only a wonderful artist, she's a pretty darned wonderful person, too!
