Michael Strong Holiday Blog Hop

It's time for anther Michael Strong Blog Hop!

This time we were to make a holiday tag using a Michael Strong stamp.  I made a couple of tags 'cause I have a couple of kids!

This one is for my daughter.  She loves blue.  I used some blue (broken china and faded jeans) distress stains on it and used the embossed resist technique.

This one is for my son who loves green.  Again with the distress stains (pine needles) and embossed resist.

Next up in the blog hop is HERMA - http://hermaf.wordpress.com

Of course there is also a prize available -- naturally a Michael Strong stamp set!  In each of the blogs in the blog hop there will be a letter.  My letter is "D".  Unscramble all the letters to make a wish and send the wish to buzzy4you@hotmail.com . Do NOT put the wish in a comment please!  That way others can have fun playing.  Hetty will draw a winner on Wednesday the 7th of December.  Have fun and hope you enjoy the blog hop!

Michael Strong February Challenge card

Here's my card for the Michael Strong Yahoo group February challenge.  We are supposed to make a Valentine's Day/Love card with no red or pink.  I used Marina Mist and Vanilla.

I really liked the simplistic look of the card so I made up an 8x8 scrapbook page very similar to it:

It's time for another Michael Strong blog hop.  A few more participants this time which is always fun.  Please make comments on all the blogs for a chance of winning a great prize from Mike!

For this hop I made some simple Valentine's Day cards.

 This last one uses shimmer paint so it's hard to get a good picture.
