It's a Special Hop!!

It's a Surprise Party!!!! It is Stamp TV's 1st birthday and we just wanted to throw a little party for Gina! Happy 1st Birthday Stamp TV!!! To celebrate, a bunch of design team members and challenge hostesses decided to create birthday cards using a previous Stamp TV kit (or Gina K set). Leave a comment on every blog along the way because one lucky commenter will receive the all new Stamp TV kit that will be released next week!!!! (And....you're gonna LOVEEE it!) You will have until Sunday, March 14 at 8:00 p.m. central to post comments on all the blogs. The winner will be posted on Stamp TV on Monday!

For my card, I used my ALL time favorite image from a previous StampTV Kit, Eclectic Summer! Here is my creation:



I absolutely love this daisy image...I have used it more than any other stamp! For this card, I stamped the image onto vellum with stayz on ink in black, then flipped it over and colored the backside of the flower with my prisma pencils before cutting them out. Love LOVE how this turned out! It just makes me smile and I hope it does Gina! Thank you Gina for creating StampTV! It has touched so many lives, including mine! Ok, I'll quit with the mooshy stuffs, lol!!
