InStyle Stamps Blog Hop

Hi All,

It's that time of month again - another blog hop with InStyle Stamps!  This month, our theme was the end of summer - I chose to focus on the "back to school" part of that.  A sad time for some, and a really happy time for others (ie. moms LOL)!  If you came here from Kristine's blog, then you are on the right track!  If not, please head back to the ISS blog to start at the beginning.  As always, once you are done hopping, go back to the main blog, leave a commnt, and vote for your favourite DT creation - you have a chance to win an awesome prize (a $25 goodie bg from ISS)!

For my card, I chose to use Molly - I used the digi format, but she is also sold in rubber HERE.  I used mainly Whisper White CS, and the green CS and patterned papers are from an awesome care package I got in the mail from Virginia!  I used the Martha Stewart crown edge punch on the green piece, and added some miscellaneous pink rhinestones from Michael's to each peak. 

I printed the sentiment on my computer and punched it out with a 1 3/4" circle punch.  That was mounted on to a chipboard circle, which was covered with the same green CS.  Of course, I added some rhinestones to that panel. 

Molly was printed onto PTI White CS, coloured with Copics, and cut out with rectangle Nestabilities.  I added some Pretty In Pink sponging to the inside of that - and I also added some pink fun flock to one of the shopping bags - can you tell she is not really shopping for school supplies?  LOL

Your next stop on the hop is Angelique's blog! I'm sure you will love it!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
