LSS Blog Hop

I hope you didn't have to miss a minute of yesterday's Shop, Hop, and Crop. The fun continues today so be sure to get on board the LSS Hop. If you didn't start at Lindsay's blog be sure you pop in there and leave a sweet comment for a chance to win an amazing stamp set. Also, be sure to visit the Virtual Crop Room where we'll be showcasing all the great things you can do with LSS digital stamps and we'll be chatting up all the challenges, too. Then, don't miss the opportunity to grab up an array of stamp sets at LSS for a 50% savings! Whoa, that's a whole lot fun for one day!
I stepped a bit out of my comfort zone here to try a style I'm not sure I've mastered yet. I love the look of vintage cards: the lace, the pearls, the distressing and aging, but it's not my "go-to" style. Still, I've seen so many projects out there that I really like with old-fashioned vintage flair that I decided to see what I could do. Lindsay's got this fabulous set called Sew Pretty that lends itself fabulously to this style. I created an anniversary card using one of the images from the set. See what you think:

I colored the pair of scissors with my copics, did some chalking around the image, and added some great Prima pearls across the front.I may not quite have my vintage technique down just yet but I'm working on it! Now, if you'd like a chance to win all the images in the Sew Pretty set, leave a comment here on my blog. I'll have a random drawing after the hop and the winner will receive the entire set. For an extra chance to win, add this blinkie to your blog, and then come back here and leave another comment letting me know you did and including your blog address.

Now, head over to Shannon for the next stop on the hop. And don't forget to CROP and SHOP, too!
