What's a hop without prizes? We've hidden TEN single stamp prizes along the way and one lucky winner will win the ENTIRE July release! All you need to do is leave some love at every stop along the hop. You have until 11:59PM EST on Sunday to leave comments for a chance to win! Winners will be announced on the SCRS blog on Monday.
My mojo has gone walkabouts lately (it's probably off enjoying the heatwave, lol!), so I have been checking out the sketch challenge blogs for some inspiration. Well, as soon as I saw Jen's Deconstructed sketch 110 this week, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it! I trimmed four squares of white card, then used my stamp positioner thingy to help me stamp Beach Chloe in the same position on each of the squares. I've never coloured an image in B&W before, but I *think* it turned out okay in the end? I thought the Party Time die cut (cut using my Whimsy Stamps Birthday Sentimentables die set) was the perfect finishing touch for my anniversary hop card!
Sorry for the rubbish photo. Unfortunately our basic digi camera (it's a Canon IXUS 860 IS) is starting to die a death! :( Once you have turned the camera on and taken one photo, the focus completely ceases to work!! If you want to take another, you have to turn the camera off and on again. Apparently it's a known fault of these Canons. I've tried all the recommended "tricks" to try to fix it, but it's having none of it!! So guess what we'll be doing this weekend ... camera shopping - eek!! If anyone has any recommendations, I would LOVE to hear them as there are SO many on the market, it's a bit mind boggling, lol!
Anyway, now it's time for you to continue our hop by hopping over to Amy's blog, but don't forget to leave me a comment first to entire to win the entire July release!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Good luck and Happy Hopping!
