OCL Blog Hop! (and some blog candy)



ARE YOU HOPPIN' BY WITH THE OUR CRAFT LOUNGE BLOG HOP? Did you just hop on over from
Kendra Wietstock's blog? If so, you have come to the right place!

The next blog you will hop to will be:
Roseanne Knowles....

BUT WAIT!!! Don't go yet.....keep reading!!!!


I was honored to be asked to play along -- The new Swingin' by set from Our Craft Lounge is the set that I chose to hop with. Did you know that it was designed by my BFF (in real life) Debbie Corbari! I am thrilled that Debbie is with OCL! Here is a sneaky peeky of the set!

Are you interested in WINNING this set? (waits)

Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net
Just post a comment in this post with your name by MONDAY noon! I will draw a winner for a free OCL Swingin' By set!

FREE IS GOOD!?!? Dontcha think????


Here is the card which I created with the set:
I used ruby red for the card base layered with some Stella Ruby Basic Grey paper. The main image is chocolate chip, certainly celery and then the main image from Swingin' By. I colored the images in with Copic markers. I punched the sentiment out with nestabilities, then layered it on some celery, punched out with a nestability circle die. I layered that on a chocolate chip scalloped punched circle. The main image and sentiment are attached to the card with foam dimensionals. The wide celery grossgrain ribbon is folden in half with a folded piece of sheer white polka-dot ribbon atop it. It is attached under the main image with ribbon glue.


Thanks for Hoppin' By! Stop by the next blog -- and if you are interested in the super fun set - check out Debbie's blog for a super secret code which she has on her blog with a discount!


Did you know that the hop will continue with blog candy on these blogs as well? Whatcha waitin' for -- hop on over baby!!!!
