Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the Julies Jems Blog Hop!  

This is a special opportunity for you to see the new products available from the Sale-a-bration promotion, and the new Spring Summer Seasonal Catalogue.  A few of us in Julie's Jems have got together and organised a blog hop.  The idea is that we share what we love, but also promote what our crafty friends do too.  Please take a look at the blog I have come from, and where I am going.  

This is the card I am sharing with you today.  It's a card I CASED from my downline Kylie Henshaw.  I love this new stamp set from the Sale-a-bration promotion, and I can't wait to use it more. I love stamped images like this, they are so detailed and perfect! This card is from a stamp set called Feeling Sentimental, and is wonderfully British!  This card was made with Very Vanilla and Early Espresso card stock, and First Edition Speciality Designer Papers.  I love the effect that stamping onto patterned paper has like in this card.  Linen thread was tied into a bow around the First Edition paper, to create a lovely finish to the card.  This is one of the sets you could earn when you place an order of £45.

Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think, and I hope you love all the cards and projects shared by my crafty friends.  Here's a list of the other Jems that are taking part in the Blog Hop.
