Julie's Blogoversary blog hop - Celebrate Friendship

March 01, 2013

Hi there! :) Welcome to Julie's Blogoversary blog hop - Celebrate Friendship

You should be arriving from the ever-so-talented Mary Shriver's blog

Here is the order of the blog hop again for your reference

Mary Shriver www.mkbugs.blogspot.com 
Angeline http://scrappyscrappy.blogspot.com ------>>> You are here!!

This is my first time being a contributor in a blog hop and I was squealing with excitement when Julie asked me to join in the fun. *Yay*!! :) And I must be very very excited because I actually made not one but THREE cards for this hop! I have made many new friends ever since I started my scrappy hobby, so these are dedicated to all my new (and old) friends. Let's celebrate Friendship! :)
Here's my first card.


This can be a masculine card as it has quite a rustic feel to it. I love the vintage chair & sentiment from Unity's Dec 2011 KOTM. I inked it up with some Hero Arts shadow ink and painted it in with some distress markers. 

Here's my second card - a more whimsical one.


I used some fun MLS paper as the background as it seemed fit for the stamped image from the same KOTM as above. I put some distress markers on my craft mat and used the Tim Holtz waterbrush to paint the image in. Love that you can do blending straight on the card. Then I framed the image with some yellow twine.

And my last and final card for the hop is my absolute favorite! :)


This would be perfect if you have plenty of scrap papers (which I'm sure all of you do). Just cut them into squares and they make a gorgeous background! :)

Thanks for visiting my blog. Do remember to leave a comment along the way as there are blog candy and prizes to be won. Now it's time to hop over to Miwa Lee's blog

Happy Blogoversary Julie!

  4. Angel, these are fantastic! I don't know which is my favorite! The t
    Yellow twine as a frame is brilliant, painting your cityscape is oh-so-pretty, but your last card is a show stopper. I agree with you. I think it's my favorite, too. I'm sooo glad you joined this hop! Thanks for helping me celebrate!
