Welcome to our little HOP!!  We are SO happy that you could join us in celebrating some NEW stamps!  Mr. Rubbernecker released some SUPER cute images, on the down low, a few weeks back and we wanted to share them with you.  They are SO adorable that we just HAD to show them off!  We have sweet SCOOTER KIDS, some new ANIMALS, and we even got some cute new FRIENDS.  You can find them by visiting RUBBERNECKER STAMPS and clicking on the 2011 NEW RELEASES.  Hey, wait, there is MORE!!  We also have something else to CELEBRATE.  Our design team has a NEW name!!  We are SO excited!!  I bet you were wondering what was up with that  weren’t you?!  We are NOW the……………………………..

                                               
Cool, huh?  We are going to have SO much to share with you!!  It will TRULY be a SISTERHOOD , for sure!!! 

OK now, a HOP would not be a HOP without a little PRIZE!!  Right?  Of course!!  SO, in honor of our news AND our new images, if you visit ALL the participants and leave some LOVE, you will have the chance to WIN a………………………………….

$25 RUBBERNECKER STAMPS CERTIFICATE!!
WOW, more coolness!!  Our winner will be announced on TUESDAY, so you will have plenty of time to hop! 

Now onto what I designed for today's hop.  I chose to use the Ewe image from the Animals set and incorporate it into a scene on a small white purse template (by DeNami Design).  I colored the entire template with distress inks.  For the grass and tree leaves, I used Crushed Olive, Shabby Shutters, and Peeled Paint with a blender tool.  For the sky, I used Tumbled Glass and a post-it note punched with my scallop punch to use as a template for sponging the clouds in my sky.  The tree trunk was stamped in Vintage Photo; I colored it in with Copic markers.  The ewe was also colored with Copic markers.


I set eyelets at the top of the purse with my Cropadile and strung baby blue fiber ribbon through the holes

Here's an inside view so you can see how the scene carries to the inside, as well as the sentiment I stamped.  Since I didn't want the backside of the eyelets or my fiber to show, I covered the inside with blue designer paper.  You can also see my Velcro closure.


Here's a partial side and back view of the purse so you can see how the scene work carries throughout the entire template.


OK, better get HOPPIN’!! Thanks SO much for being a part of our excitement!! Here's the HOP ROUTE!! Have an AWESOME day!!!
