Crafter's Companion - BLOG HOP

Hi there

Welcome to our fun Blog Hop which we are holding to celebrate Sara's Signature Contemporary Christmas collection, which launches on the 6th August. 

You should have arrived from Suzi

 As part of the Blog Hop event each of the Designers have an individual prize you can win. The fabby prize on my blog is a Sara Signature Contemporary Christmas Elegant Snowfall 5" x 7" Embossing Folder and some Luxury Winter White Ribbon. To be in with a chance to win them you must leave me a comment. Winners of the individual blog prizes will be announced on the 5th Aug on Crafter's Companion UK Facebook page.
 
 
In addition to the individual blog prizes there is an overall prize of the WHOLE of the Sara Signature Contemporary Christmas collection. This will be announced live on the launch show on Hochanda  on the 6th August. To be entered into the overall prize draw you must comment on every Designer's blog in the hop - I have listed them all at the bottom of this post in case you get lost somewhere. 
 
The blog hop will finish on August 4th at 11.59pm, so you have lots of time to enter.

Good Luck!

Soooo, to get you in the creative and blog hopping mood I've created a sweet easel card for the occasion.

Good afternoon Janine,
Your card is adoreable flower, she looks so cute and i have already went up on to CC site to see if it is in stock(which it is) for me to order, although i wish that i could colour as well as you do as that, to me is what makes the card shine, it's colouring in. It is a well balanced in design and in the colours that you have used. Thank you for letting us into your crafty mind,

June Smith said...

Hello Janine, I am new to your blog but have ticked the follow section, I love seeing all the design teams creations, I never even knew that you all had blogs, but that is rectified now as am following all of them.

Now to your card, well she is such a little cutie, what a stunning keepsake this is for a very luck little girl.

I know everyone wants to win something in the blog hop, and I am no exception, but I must admit I am a sucker for embossing folders and CC's ones are brilliant, especially through the Gemini.

Good luck to everyone

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
