Falling For You Blog Hop



You are nearing the end of the hop now, only a couple of more stops to go :-) If you arrived here from the lovely Lisa's Blog then you are going in the right direction. If not you may wish to start at the beginning on Simon's Blog

I was thrilled to be asked to join in with the Falling For You Blog Hop, with such a line up of super talented designers it is brilliant to be in the same list !! Thank you so much for this opportunity Heidi, and for the parcel of goodies that I was able to use for the hop too ;-)

I made 3 variations on a theme cards to share today


First up is a shaker thanks card.

I used a new set of Bokeh Lights Stencils and a Circle Sayings Stamp Set along with Audrey Blue Card Stock and shades of Simon's Exclusive Ink Pads


I kept these cards fairly CAS as I really wanted the beauty of the stencils to shine. The addition of a few sequins and pearls just adds a bit of girly bling :-)


For my last card I added a tag and a butterfly.

 I used a Falling Backgrounds Clear Stamp to make the delicate background design


Thank you for stopping by my blog and for joining in the hop. I really appreciate your comments and I will be reading them all, so please leave me one :-)

There is a Prize Pack on all the stops on the hop, so make sure you have commented on every stop. You have until April 28th to join in and then Simon will randomly pick the winners !! GOOD LUCK :-)


From here you need to hop on over to the super talented May Flaum's blog. I know she has something totally fabulous to share ! :-)

Products I used 



These are the whole release, these products are also available separately

Hope you have all enjoyed the hop :-)
Happy Crafting
Luv Lols x x x
