Sweet N Sassy blog hop with blog candy

Hi there! Have you been enjoying all the wonderful samples so far from the Sweet N Sassy stamps DT members? Some of the DT members also have blog candy to offer as well, have you found any of them? Well, if not, you have now because I am one of them!! Korin has generously given me the chance to offer you the new Easter scripture set that is going to be released tomorrow- woohoo! It is a great set and I love that she used different fonts in it. To win this set, simply leave a comment on this post and I will draw my winner tomorrow (Friday) during the release party so you will have until 9PM EST on 2/27 to enter. Have a peek at the prize and my card sample using it:





I stamped the scripture and then sponged it with baja breeze and sewed it onto my brown matte that I then distressed with scissors. I embossed a row of flowers onto my vellum strip before sewing it onto my dp and I also embossed my saffron strip as well. All the edges were distressed with my scissors. I used my new martha stewart butterfly punch to add some butterflies which were accented with tiny pearls. I also added my yummy favorite new double sided satin ribbon which I found at hobby lobby the other day. It is a terrific match to chocolate chip and baja breeze cardstock from SU.



Supplies:
stamps- Sweet N Sassy stamps Easter scripture set
CS- cloud 9 dp, white, choc chip, so saffron, vellum
accessories- sewing machine, cb swiss dots folder, cb thanks set, pearls, ribbon, MS butterfly punch


Tomorrow night is the release party for Sweet N Sassy in their forum section of the website. There will be some chatting, give aways, and some challenges (one of which I am the hostess of). It is from 9PM- midnight EST so I hope that you will be able to stop by.

If this is your first stop on the blog hop then you will want to go to the SNSS blog after here. If you have already been hopping then your next stop for today is Jeanette.

Thanks for visiting today- have a terrific day!!
