Abby's First Blogoversary Hop!

Hello friends! Abby has invited me to be a part of her one year anniversary of blogging. How fun! She has challenged us with creating a project using one of her favorite scrappin brands. One just so happens to be one of MY personal faves: Market Street Stamps! Whoo hoo! Since I don't have a Cricut over here in New Zealand, I am definitely challenged to work a little more with my Promarkers, but that's a good challenge. Hope you enjoy my lil card today. Be sure to hop over to Abby's blog and leave a comment when you're done hopping because she is giving away a boat load of awesome prizes!

Recipe:
Market Street Stamps
Papertrey Ink, Stampin Up card stock
Cowgirl Up paper stack
Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Promarkers
twine

Next stop along the hop is Miss Alma! Have fun hopping friends.

I love your card, Erin! I think it's nice to break away from the Cricut from time to time. I have been on a stamping and coloring kick lately and find it more fulfilling to my creative needs than cutting, though I still love that too. I was also admiring your photos from NZ! It's really beautiful there! I have been a fan of that country since the first Lord of the Rings movie was released. Would love to visit there some day. Have fun and post more pictures, please! LOL
