IT's Time For a Lockhart Blog Hop

Well, I think fall has definitely arrived here in Texas. It has been raining alot, but only around 75 during the day. It is such a nice relief.

On to the Lockhart Blog Hop. I have used one of Karen's beautiful seasonal windows. She has really outdone herself on these designs. The blog hop runs thru Saturday night at 11 pm EST--winner will be announced on Sunday on the store blog.

In order to win prizes (2 signed stamps /gold paint/Flower Soft/Sparkle Fluff) you must leave a comment on the store blog and in order to win an additional $15 gift certicate you must count all the hidden hearts & leave it in your comment There will be only 1 winner.

Lockhart has some fabulous stamps for the upcoming holidays. The season windows (my favorites) and some really really cute Christmas stamps. All can be found at SCACD.


This image is colored with Copics and then I used 4 or 5 different colors of Spica pens for accent. It really does add a nice sparkle. If you click on the top picture you can see it. I applied a little Autumn Flower Soft under the pumpkins. The gem brads are some I picked up at a scrapbook show. They are really gorgeous in person, they have such a sparkle with a 3D dimension look. The background was punched with a MS punch. To totally finish it, I added the leaf ribbon.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Whimsy Stamps - E - Embossing
My Time to Craft - Halloween Colors
Stamp Something - Bling It
Diva Coffee Break Designs - Color Challenge
Gingersnap Creations - GC25 Chestnut Challenge - Harvest
Gingersnap Creations - GC26 Spicy Supply Challenge - Brads
Gingersnap Creatons - GC27 Color Challenge
Paperplay Challenge - Favorite Embellishment
Daring cardmakers - Favorite Things (5) Ribbon, Stitching, Punches, Brads, Spica Pens, Copics


The sentiment and pumpkin stamps are both heat embossed and the pumpkins are colored with Copics and spica glitter pens. This card is very rich looking.

Now to the BLOG HOP. If you started with my blog you need to go back to Suzanne's to start. The prizes for this contest are fabulous.

While you are at SCACD be sure to check out the Lockhart stamps be sure and check out the Autumn and Polar White Flower Soft - these two colors are gorgeous.

I appreciate you taking the time to stop by and please visit again !!!
