MCT Farewell Blog Hop

Welcome to our My Creative Time "Farewell Blog Hop"!  If you just happened to arrive here, you might want to start back at Emma's blog, so that you don't miss anything!  Our design team term has sadly come to an end, and since we have all become such good friends, we decided to make our last blog hop together be a "Friendship" theme.  I hope all of you have thoroughly enjoyed this team as much as I did - they are a great group of ladies, and I will miss working with them!  Be sure to read to the end of this post, because we EACH have a giveaway for you today!



For my card today, I pulled out a few of my old favorite stamp and die sets.  The hexagons were made with my favorite Stitched Hexy Dies, using Basic Gray's Eskimo Kisses patterned paper.  The hot cocoa mug and stamp are from Do the Cocoa Motion.  To get the mirror image of the mug, I stamped it onto acetate and then quickly pressed my patterned paper onto that.  This gave me a faint image that I was able to darken with a thin marker.  I also stamped the images again on white cardstock and cut out the marshmallows.  After adhering them to the mugs, I went over them with a Sakura White Opaque Glaze Pen.  A little stitching at the bottom of the card was just a fun extra detail.

As I mentioned before, we are having a giveaway at each stop in this hop.  That means there are a total of 19 giveaways!  All you have to do is leave your comments in order to qualify!  Emma will announce all of the winners on Monday, 12/23/13, on her blog.  Here is what I am giving away today:


***SALE ALERT***

There will be a sale in the My Creative Time Store FOR THIS WEEKEND ONLY, beginning Friday, 12/20 and ending Sunday, 12/22 @ midnight PST.  Use code:  FAREWELL2013 to get 25% off all IN STOCK ITEMS ONLY!!!
