Blogging Friends Blog Hop - Sale-a-bration Times Come On!

Welcome to the Blogging Friends Blog Hop.  This month's theme is "Sale-a-Bration Times Come On!" and I decided to feature the A Touch of Ink Stampset and Healing Heart Stampset - both available during Sale-a-Bration.  During Sale-a-Bration, you earn free product from the Sale-a-Bration Brochure when you spend either $60 Cdn or $120 Cdn!  What could be better than free product!

Today you will "hop" with us and check out the amazing projects created by these very talented demonstrators.

You are currently visiting Melva Peters from British Columbia, Canada. 

For my card today I used the Joseph's Coat Technique.  You can check out my YouTube Video for instruction on how to make this card.  Isn't this pretty!  I love that every card you make looks different depending on how you blend your colours.

The A Touch of Ink Stampset is available for free with $120 CDN order and the Healing Heart Stampset is available for free with $60 CDN order!  You'll be able to order yours starting on January 5th when the January to June Mini Catalogue goes live!
