Cheers! for Love To Scrap "No Rulz 2" Blog Hop

Hi everyone! The Love To Scrap Challenge Blog DT is continuing our yearly tradition of a challenge with no rules! We're happy to bring you our "NO RULZ 2" Blog Hop! We're being sponsored by Pink Gem Designs, so come on over and hop with us for a chance to win two single images of choice!

As you hop, leave comments on all the blogs! The more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win those amazing Pink Gem Designs images! You do not have to participate in the blog hop to enter the challenge! BUT if you participate in the blog hop, you get an extra entry for each project you enter in the challenge! Woo-hoo!

Okay, let me sidetrack for a moment to share my Happy New Year card! I chose to play with the absolutely adorable but feisty little lady, Cocktail Molly! And no, lol, it's not too early to be thinking 'new year'... it'll be here before we know it!

I chose several coordinating papers from a vintage paper pack that I thought went real well with Molly! Of course, I used some of my favorite stitched dies and added my signature big bow. And I paired this fun image with a couple fun sentiments.

I decorated the inside with a layered leftover floral strip used on the front. I distressed all the elements on the front and the inside with distress ink. These vintage papers just scream 'little old lady' - can't you smell the rose perfume?! OMG, love it!

I'm happy to enter sweet Molly into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury White and Cranberry Tart cardstock, Bazzill Basics Vintage Marketplace 6x6 papers
  • Stamps: Pink Gem Designs 'Cocktail Molly' digital image, Stamp Camp Simple Sentiments 1 and Simple Sentiments 2
  • Ink: Ranger Antique Linen distress ink, Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Dies/Punches: Memory Box Stitched Rectangle Layers dies, Memory Box Stitched Star Layers die
