Day After



The Craft's Meow Store Blog


It's the day after The Craft's Meow big Birthday Bash but we are still celebrating with a blog hop! You should have arrived from Julie Ranae's Blog! The complete hop order and additional details can be found on The Craft's Meow Blog. Each guest designer, design team member and illustrator are featuring one (or more!) of the six sets released during this month. You have a chance to win the entire release by commenting along the way!

I have a clean and simple card today. It features the free, limited time, digital flower image that I designed for The Craft's Meow Birthday Bash. I colored it with markers, did a bit of easy fussy cutting and adhered it to the card base that have been stamped with a beautiful sentiment designed by Nina B. for The Craft's Meow (from the Father and Mother set).

There's still some time to play along with the challenges introduced this week, I hope to see your The Craft's Meow creations linked up! (Details on The Craft's Meow Blog.)

 Your next stop on the hop is the ever talented Lindsay Amrhein!
