Wild Rose Studio Festive Frolics Blog Hop

Welcome to the Wild Rose Studio FESTIVE FROLICS Blog Hop :-)

Dulcie, the designer and owner of the Wild Rose Studio, has recently released some gorgeous new Christmas stamps and we thought we would celebrate with a hop to show you the new designs and also give you a chance to win some of these lovely stamps too :-)

You can see all of the new Christmas Designs HERE

Join in with the Festive Frolics theme and you will have a chance to win this FABULOUS Grand Prize. You don't have to use a Wild Rose Studio image but if you have one we would love to see it :-)

AND there will be candy at every stop along the way. All you have to do is make a Christmas card/creation and link it with the Linky on the Wild Rose Studio Blog

You have until Monday 17th October 9 am UK time ( 8 am CET ) to join in :-)

If you arrived here from the super talented Sarpreet's Blog then you are going in the right direction, if not you will need to start from the Wild Rose Studio Blog

For my card I used this very cute Pickles with Sledge image, coloured with Copics and copious amounts of Star Dust Stickles added. I used some Polar White Flower Soft on his hat and glossy accents on his beak and feet. The papers are also from the Wild Rose Studio, these are from the new Wintry Christmas pack. I used a EK Success Snowflake edge punch and used some of the tiny confetti snowflakes as embellies too. The sentiment is from the new Christmas Circles set, also from the Wild Rose Studio.

From here you need to hop over to the very lovely Ria's Blog for more fabulous eye candy :-)

If you would like a chance to win a Pickles with Sledge stamp like the one I used add a link to your blog with Mr Linky then please make sure you leave a comment on all the DT blogs AND make a card with the Festive Frolics theme, which you will need to link with the linky HERE :-)

Thanks for looking , hope you enjoy the hop :-)
