The Design Team at Addicted to Stamps and More (ATS&M)  are SO excited because we have such a wonderful designer/sponsor to introduce you to and there are amazing prizes to be won!! In fact there will be 7 prizes up for grabs by joining in our blog hop.

You're really gonna love this blog hope because...are you ready for this?  There is a prize to be won on every blog!!
How do you win these amazing prizes? All you have to do is leave a comment on my blog and then comment on EVERY blog that is participating in this hop. Easy peasy!!  Here's one of the prizes to be won (digital images):
Here is my card using one of the digital images from the Flower Children Save pack shown above:
Isn't this little lovely sweet? I colored her with copic markers (the shading that's part of the digi makes it fun).  The background sheet is my own creation using a new embossing folder from Stampin Up! (sneak peek product).  I used a sponge finger dauber to make the circles in each of the embossed shapes and then used that same dauber to shade around the raised embossing some more.  I like how it turned out - do you? 
Perhaps you have been visiting and have popped in from the wonderful blog of Deepti of  Catchy Crafts . You'll notice that I'm the end of the blog line, but don't dispare as you can start back at the beginning  at the ATSM blog.  If you lose  your way, that's ok because you can start back here and work your way through.

  19. I am very appreciative of your card and love how it turned out. Because of your card, I have many new hinges to try. I've never tried a circle dauber. I like how you used it in the shapes as well as on them. I am just starting in to using Copics and I like the variants of color you used in the girl's dress. The deep blue flowers against the yellow is awesome. Thanks for the inspira
