VC_Rocks blog hop #2

If you're looking for new paper crafting ideas this weekend, be sure to check out the VC_Rocks Blog Hop.  This month features products soon to be off the market as well as some of the newest releases.

If you've already started the hop, then you've probably just come from Holly Podkowa's blog.  You can also find all the blogs on the main VC_Rocks site in the event you need to back-track.

Below I've created a floral card using the new Newsprint designer sereis paper and "Because I Care" stamp set. You can see the flower is a hydrangea, but who says you have to use the typical blues and pinks of the actual flower?

The main image was stamped with the Cherry Cobbler dye pad and mounted on Coffee Crumb and Espress.  Funny how many of the new dye pad names relate to food. 



A few close ups for you.





Thanks for stopping by and checking out my projets.  Your next stop is Angela Walters.
