Sweet 'n Sassy and The Twinery Are Hopping!

This is my second post today! Don't miss my Pinkalicious Sophia challenge card with the Prettie Girls!
Today Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has teamed up with the fabby ladies over at The Twinery to bring you an amazing blog hop!  Settle in, get your tea (or coffee) warmed up, and maybe grab some chocolate too :)  If you've joined me from Grace Hester's blog...welcome!

I used two sets released by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps in September, Christmas Light and Light of Christmas.  And I used the super cool die that coordinates with the candle image.  Take a look at my card:

I stamped the Light of Christmas background on a cream panel and sponged the edges.  I die cut the candle image, stamped it, and colored it with Copics.  It's popped up on a bit of foam tape.  Because I used cream card stock and the colors in my patterned paper were cream, I wanted my twine to be a bit "dirtier" than the usual gorgeous Charcoal color.  I flipped over an ink pad and ran it over my twine until I achieved the desired aged look!

Your next stop on the hop is Caroline Stender.   She's running a little behind today, so if he post isn't up yet, head over to Mary Marsh's blog to check out her eye candy!!  And if you get lost along the way, feel free to head over to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps blog to find your way :)

Ooohh....before you go!  I should tell you about the PRIZES you can win for hopping along with us!  The Twinery is giving away one Ultimate Color Sampler Pack - that's a whole lotta scrumptious twine!!  And take a look at what Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is giving away:
Yep, that's right!  The fantastic Season of Change stamp set and die bundle!  I am so in love with this set.  It makes stamping the leaves soooooo easy!  Now, how can you win these prizes?  Just be sure to comment on ALL of the stops along the hop today.  You have until October 22 at 11:59 PM EST to leave the comments; winners will be announced on October 23rd. 

Happy Hopping!
