Welcome to the LuLu Blog Hop sponsored by Stamping Bella! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Bloggabella.
If you read my blog you may remember that at Stamping Around Vermont Joanne Basile taught a class and one of her projects was a Lulu card. I had been wanting to order some but after this class I just HAD to order - plus with the new FREE shipping policy for orders over $55 how can you go wrong . . . a few Turtle Tots and Huggabugs jumped into my cart too - hee hee!
So my card today is with Emma from the Lulu Collection. I used some pretty paper from My Mind's Eye and my Spellbinder's Blossom dies to make a girly girl card! The sentiment is actually from one of my Turtle Tots sets.
I was super excited to get a chance to use my brand new Black Glaze pen for her hair and dress. Joanne let us all use hers in Vermont and I came home and ordered a set right away! See in the close-up photo how shiny and black it makes her hair & polka dots?!! The brad in the center of the flower is something I've had forever . . . just waiting for the perfect project! Love it when that happens!! I cut the leaves free hand and pierced them for some interest. Oh, and the flowers in her hair were cut out and popped up with foam adhesive.
How about a prize? In addition to the fabulous eye candy, we have decided to hide a prize somewhere along the hop! One pre-selected blogger will draw a random winner from the comments on her post, and the winner will receive a $25 Gift Voucher to Stamping Bella!!! The fun part is...we're not telling you who it is! So as you hop, make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!! We will announce the winner on Monday in the Splitcoast forum. MWAH!
