Paper Crafts 2013 Stamping Royalty Blog Hop! (& GIVEAWAY)!

Hi everyone!


Welcome back! Today I'm here to share a card for the Paper Crafts Stamping Royalty 2013 Blog Hop! (You should be arriving from the talented Alicia Thelin's blog.)

First of all, a big thank you to Paper Crafts for picking one of my cards for Stamping Royalty! I'm truly honoured! The card that won me a place in Paper Crafts Stamping Royalty is in the Season's Greeting category but the card I made for today is in the Hello/Thinking of You category.

I used the Simon Says Stamp Tri-Circle Die repeatedly to create my background of circles and then used the coordinating Circle Friends Stamp Set for the sentiment, bear, and patterned circles.


Supplies :


Before I go I wanted to offer up a little giveaway! Most of the ladies are giving away something from their Stamping Royalty prize package. I had mine shipped to a family member and haven't received it from them yet. So...sweet, generous Heidi (owner of Simon Says Stamp) has given me an extra of the Friendship Circle Stamp and Die Combo Set I used for today's card to giveaway on my blog! Thank you, Heidi!

*Simon Says DIE & STAMPS SET FRIENDSHIP CIRCLES SetFC16

Just leave a comment on this post by the end of Tuesday, July 23rd. I'll post the winner on Wednesday, July 24th and they will have until July 31st to claim their prize.

You next stop on the hop is the fabulous Joni Andaya's blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Sarah
