Embellish Blog Hop




Welcome and thanks for joining me today along with Embellish Magazine for a blog hop filled with creativity, tips, inspiration, and prizes! 

Don't forget to leave comments on every blog. Embellish is offering four prizes for 10 lucky winners. The winners will be randomly selected from each of the blog hop participant blogs. A comment left on each of the blog hop participant's web site will give you an entry to win one of the prizes, which include Lawn Fawn stamps, May Arts twine, Subscription to Embellish Magazine, and A New Design crinkly stained ribbon.

The focus of the premiere issue of Embellish is to use twine along with kraft, turquoise, brown and red. I love to use twine and at one point had a hard time making a card without it. I decided to go a little rustic with my card and stitched up a little cardstock quilt.  I also had to work a mini clothes pin in there somehow so I used it to hold the sentiment and added some twined up buttons to finish it off.

  56. Saw your comment on Harriet's blog and I like to be helpful so WOYWWAC stands for 'What's on your workdesk Wednesday Anniversary Challenge' (for WOYWW; started off by Julia http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/ bloggers pop round to snoop at what's on other people's desks. The AC bit is 'cos next week is the first anniversary of WOYWW and Julia has challenged participants to make something to prettify (if that's a word LOL) our workspace but it must include the WOYWW acronym)
    That's my good deed for today ;)
    Beautiful card you've made, I love the colours too :)
