Heartfelt Thanks with The Craft's Meow



The day has finally arrived !

It's The Craft's Meow January Release
Team Blog Hop

I hope you stopped by from my friend

If not, I would love for you to join us from the start at
because someone is going to win the
entire collection of new releases and it could be you !



I created today's card using
'Happy as a Lark' and 'Many Thanks'


I laid down my 'wallpaper' base using paper from Lily Bee Design.
I wrapped the seam with binding & baker's twine from The Twinery.
I stamped the lark on the top half.
 
On a separate piece of cardstock, I stamped another lark, cut it out
and shaded it with color.  I adhered it just off-center from the one
on the base card so it would bring a little dimension.

I die cut the vine and gave it some dimension with Stickles.
I stamped the sentiment on a Spellbinder's die cut frame
and embellished it with black gems & Liquid Pearls.


Don't forget . . .

'Lark Additions' is this month's FREE GIFT w/$50 purchase.
It's the PERFECT compliment to the set I featured today.
The sentiments are simply beautiful.

To have the BEST CHANCE TO WIN the entire collection of new releases,
pay a visit to our designer's blogs,
leave a comment where you can and cross your fingers
all by 9pm PST, Wednesday January 23rd.
