Happy Birthday Emma Lou!
Good morning everyone! In honor of Emma Lou's 30th Birthday the Heartfelt Creations' designers, past and present, are having a blog hop!
The Hop starts today and ends Tuesday, August 16th, at midnight. All you need to do to enter is visit the blogs and leave a comment. The winner will be chosen by Random.org and will receive a $25 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations.
The winner of the blog hop will be announced on Heartfelt Creations Facebook page (I'll also announce it on my blog). They will have 72 hours to claim their prize otherwise another name will be drawn. In order to claim their prize, the winner will need to email Liz Walker at firstname.lastname@example.org with "Winner of Emma Lou's Birthday Bog Hop" in the subject line.
Here is the card I made for Emma Lou's Birthday!
I used one of the older stamp sets, Sunflower Bouquet Stamp, from the Classic Sunflower Collection. I love this bucket of sunflowers and the gold and burgundy together! Great card for Autumn that will soon be upon us.
The image was colored with pencils and mineral spirits using paper stumps and I added Heart of Gold Prills to the flower centers. I also decorated the inside of the card, but neglected to take a picture before I mailed it to Emma Lou. Complete instructions for this are at the end of my post if you are interested.
Here are the designers participating in the Blog Hop:
Good luck hopping! Make sure to visit as many blogs as you can and leave a comment!
