Good Morning,

Today we are having a fun blog hop with lots of ideas to share with you.

Also, today we have a guest designer so you should have arrived here from RITA'S BLOG. 

Following on from the fantastic Blank Canvas Collection, we are excited to present the  MIXED MEDIA BLANK CANVAS COLLECTION #2 Building on the original release (recently featured in Craft Stamper Magazine), this new collection will take you on further creative adventures as you mix and match the stamps and use a variety of techniques. Perfect for beginners and seasoned mixed media enthusiasts alike, these stamps will grace cards and paper crafting projects as beautifully as they will altered canvases and other mixed media projects.

The image I am sharing is "LEAP OF FAITH".  There were so many things running through my mind that this image could be used for I had a hard time deciding so I  went with an inspiration card.  I see her sometimes as leaping for joy for being herself  - unique - and able to create, dream, and hope.  The words on the card are from the stamp that is an EXTRA if you purchase the complete WOMEN SET  -  I just stamped and cut them out, but it would make a great background stamp.

The corners are from the COMPASS - NATURE'S DIRECTION SET  which is partially displayed on the card.  Below is a picture of the compass in its entirety. 

Also, did you notice the cool crackling look behind the image?  This set  is going to be one of my favorite background stamps.  It is LIGHTENING - NATURE'S DIRECTION SET.  The COMPASS and LIGHTENING ARE SOLD TOGETHER AS A SET. 

Also, today there are  4 NEW DIES BY SCACD  being released today.

Hope you are enjoying the hop.  Isn't it full of wonderful ideas?

Now, please hop on over to SUZANNE'S BLOG.

Just a reminder for my International friends, the stamps and dies can also be purchased from  QUIXOTIC PAPERIE.

Have a wonderful weekend !!!
