The Stamping Boutique blog hop!

Welcome to
The Stamping Boutique
Blog Hop


We are showing off Tracey's line of Pocket Patooties today, available @ the store NOW!
and
For 35% off, use the code
--> bloghop <--
which is good through Sunday!

Now onto the hop...
If you've arrived here from Tobi's blog, you're right on track!


Stamps: TSB pocket patooties (birds)
Paper: SU! cs, SU! DSP (welcome neighbor)
Inks: SU! markers, SU! pastels
Other: Sizzix scallop, SU! slit punch,
gingham ribbon.
sentiment is CG

Inside reads: "A friend knows the song in your heart
and sings it to you when you
memory fails."


I used the poppin' pastels method for the green pocket because I didn't have any markers/pencils to match the moss color. I also do not own a regular scallop punch (without any designs) so I used my SU! slit punch to make a row of scallops! Necessity is the mother of invention, right?


Your next stop is Patti, I know she has something fabulous to show you!!!!



Here are some challenges...

Sunday Sketch & Stamp~sketch.
SPCC~colors=caramel, banana & moss
Creative Craft Challenge~music to my ears.
Kaboodle Doodles~fancy folds.
Everybody-Art-Challenge~easel card.
Pals Paper Arts~inspiration pix.


Praying peace over you today, may you hear the song Love has placed in your heart and be joyful!
Blessings!!!
