A Poppy on Day Three of our Blog Hop



Yet another scheduled post, but with a little added note today to say thank you for all your kind words of support and encouragement, I don't feel able to face things full on yet, hence the lack of visits to you all but really appreciate your kindness and understanding.

So it's day three of our Blog Hop to celebrate the Prickley Pear Spring/Summer 2014 collection!  You will find everything here under new releases.

I was delighted to find there was a Poppy in the new releases, in fact two as it comes in two sizes so needless to say I have one or two made with this which I will be sharing in the coming weeks. I stamped the larger of the two GG0194 Poppy Bud onto the largest Flourish Oval die and my favorite Versafine Frost and Glimmer Mist technique to create lots of lovely dimension to the flower head........if you want to give this a go you will find my tutorial on Monday's post here or via the tutorial tab at the top. 


We are celebrating with a 3 day blog hop event!  Join us each day as our new Design Team showcases the new product!  As always, leave comments on each and every blog post along the way since there will be one winner selected for each day's comments!  We will select our winners on April 20 and they will be announced on April 21 in our Monday inspiration post!

If you have arrived from Rene then you are right on track, if not, you can find the beginning of the hop HERE and next you should be Hopping over to Michelle.

Thank you so much for popping in and good luck with the prize draws.
