The Dream Team and Special Friends June Blog Hop!!


Hello everyone ...are you ready for some fun?? I am just thrilled to be part of the Dream Team and Special Guests Blog Hop for the Stampers Dream Store.....Whoohoo!!! What a privilege to be hopping with such fabulous stampers!!! Thanks, Michelle, for inviting me again to be part of such a fun event!!!!

My card features stamps from Alesa Baker's Home Sweet Nest set by Impression Obsession. The nest was stamped on the Bo Bunny Gabrielle dp and colored with Copics. The birds were also stamped on the Bo Bunny dp, lightly colored with Copics, cutout, and popped up with foam dots. Sewing was done around the background layers, and a Spellbinder's diecut, doily, lace, button, twine, and silk ribbon finish it off.



Here is the blog hop list. Be sure to leave a comment for each and every one of them when you visit their blog post today because there is hidden blog candy on one of the blogs!!! Check out all the goodies in the picture above!!!
