CSS Alumni Blog Hop for January

Carolina, a Design Team member of Stamp TV who arranges our Alumni Blog Hops, challenged us with this drawing from Melissa Cash.  If you came here from the sweet, sweet Geri Utterbach's blog -- you are right on target.  If not, you can begin here at Stamp TV, so that you don't miss a single project.  Gina K the founder of Stamp TV is offering a HUGH grab bag of goodies!  All you have to do is comment on each of the projects and you could be the randomly drawn winner of this fantastic stamp package!
Wow, this has all kinds of possibilities.  Here is my card:
I used Melanie Muenchinger's Stately Flowers 1 and the sentiment is from a wonderful set called Comfort and Peace,  some copics, pearls and Gina K Designs In the Navy and white cardstocks.

Now hop on to Karen Knegten's blog and see what she has made - Her cards are always a delight to see.

At the end of the hop, be sure to stop and leave a comment at Stamp TV.  Have a HAPPY stamping day!
