High Hopes Blog Hop

It's time to hop! If you would like to go into the draw to win some amazing High Hopes Rubber than head on over to the High Hopes Blog and start the hop.

To go into the draw, follow the hop order (starting at the HH Blog) to each of the Diva blogs and leave a comment on each one. Make sure you leave a comment on each blog because FOUR WINNERS will be drawn randomly from four Diva blogs and you won't know which one!

Now to my card! The stamp I used is quite a favourite of mine because a BBQ'ing dragon is just so funny and everyone knows Australian's like to BBQ! The stamp is called Flame Broilin' and the sentiment is Fire up the Grill. The card is pretty straight forward, watercolouring (tutorial here) with inks and Twinkling H2O's. I also hand drew some little sausages and glued them to some artistic wire so they could be twisted into shape.

Alright... that's enough from me... I don't want to hold up up along the way!

The next blog to visit from here is the lovely Alex's blog!

Another lovely card. Some great ideas. Lorraine

Love the sausages - not sure I'd like to eat what this chap has cooked though. What a fun card & the striped paper works so well accenting the stripes going the other way on his neck - intriguing - teaches me some more about design.

Hi Amy, Another awesome creation! Your card looks great and I reminds me of myself preparing to do battle with the bbq. Onguard! (or however that is spelt) The sausages have made a great embellishment too...worth the extra effort you put into making them. Have a Great Day! I am almost finished my very first bloghop.... Bye for now Maria
