There is an awesome crop going on over at CardSwaps this week. Challenges and games will be up February 8-11, 2012 and you have until February 14, 2012 to get your projects posted to the appropriate thread. If you haven't participated before, don't worry! There are many members, including me, that will be around to offer support and encouragement. You can find out all you need to know in the forum. So... AFTER the hop... you will be taken to the crop and I do hope you join in. If you can't wait, go ahead and check it out... but COME BACK. There is a prize on the line for blog hoppers and you don't want to miss out. You will be given details at the bottom of the post. Don't skip ahead!!!
My project is a stair stepper card. I got the instructions from CardMakers "Fun Folds" book, which I won in a previous crop. The flowers are very simple to make. You can find the instructions in the March issue of CardMaker magazine, along with several other types of flowers you can make.
The garden tool image is from Beccy's Place. The frame around the image and around the sentiment is from Free Vintage Digi Stamps. The other images are vintage clip art and the sentiment is mine, which you can pick up for free right here.
I used Spellbinders dies for my die cuts and an EK Success punch for the trim of my flowers. My papers are by K & Company, as well as the centers of my flowers.
Here is my free sentiment in JPEG and PNG formats. Left click on the image to blow it up; then right-click and "Save Image As". Please leave "Tickell Expressions" in the file name so you know where you got it.
So... the game for hoppers... You will be unscrambling a word once you will collect a letter at each blog you visit. Once you collect ALL the letters, the last hostess in the blog hop will direct you to the thread in the forum where you can find all the details you need to enter the drawing. All hoppers collecting all the letters, unscrambling the word or phrase, entering the game by following the directions in the forum, and leaving feedback on EVERY blog they visit WILL be entered in to a random drawing held on February 15, 2012. ONE lucky hopper will have their name drawn and will win a prize!! Fun, right?? So, make sure you visit every blog and find the letters. Your only hints are... it's a phrase and it's a way papercrafters warm up.
OK... You arrived here from Ivanka's blog, I hope. If not, go back and check out her blog and collect your letter. Then collect my letter and hop on, my friend.
My letter is... P
The list of hoppers, in case you get lost.
