Modern Audrey


The Craft's Meow

It's the day of new releases over at The Craft's Meow Blog and the designers and illustrators are here to celebrate with a blog hop! You should have arrived from my talented friend, Julie Ranae's blog.


I wanted to share with you a different, modern take on Inspired by Audrey, my first stamp set design with The Craft's Meow!  I stamped the pearl image repeatedly to make a background and then topped the card with one of the many sentiments included in the set. You could change up the colors and this would be a perfect masculine card too! Love the versatility in this set. I'd love to hear your thoughts on Inspired by Audrey!


Your next stop along the hop is another talented friend, Lindsay Amrhein. Please be sure to leave comments along the way for your chance to win this month's entire release! The deadline to comment is 9:00pm PDT, Monday, April 23rd.
  Blogger has been causing problems for some of our designers (like me today!) all week long so you may come across a few of our designer's blogs that do not appear updated with today's blog hop post. If that happens, please refer to the hop order at the end of my post or on The Craft's Meow Store Blog to continue on, but make sure you plan to check back on the other blogs because you'll need to leave a comment on each blog in order to win our BIG PRIZE!
