Sentimental Sundays Blog Hop 01/01/2012

Welcome to the Sentimental Sundays “Anything Goes” New Year's blog hop. Sunday, January 1st, brings the launch of the new Sentimental Sundays Challenge Blog and we are all excited to start things off with a fun and prize loaded Blog Hop!

You should have arrived here from Bente's blog. If you didn't arrive from her blog and would like to join in the hop, please start at the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog.


When I started this card I didn't use a sketch but knew I wanted to only use the colors pink, green and white. The image was colored with Copics and the candle flames were highlighted with Stickles. The card base is pink and measures 5 x 7. The pink pin-dot paper is from the Paper Studio and all the others were just various papers from my stash. The edge punch is from EK Success and would you believe I picked it up at a local thrift store for $1?? The sentiment is from Just Rite stamps, stamped with Close To My Heart ink,  cut and embossed with the round Spellbinders Nestabilities. Lastly the peridot-colored bling really brought this card to life!

We hope you will join in our “Anything Goes” (plus a sentiment) challenge this week. Our sponsors include: Whimsy Stamps, Meljen's Designs, Pink Cat Studio and Digital Delights by Louby Lou. Some of our design team members will also be offering prizes on their blogs so be sure to visit each stop along the way and enter your comments.

Your next stop on the hop is Amy's blog. If you should happen to get lost along the way, you can find the blog hop list over at the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog. The hop ends on Saturday, January 7th at midnight EST. The winners will be announced on the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog on Sunday, January 8th . So, hop on over to the next stop and good luck!

Thank you so much for stopping by.

    Your cards is stunning and I like how you stuck to your guns about your color choices, because they are stunning together. The layout is so simple yet takes nothing away from the image. Stunning!! Thank you for being a part of the Sentimental Sundays team, we are delighted to have you!!

More than that...we've used the same blog background. Oy! Very small world. Your card is gorgeous. I thought so once it was loaded. I love the light, fresh and airy colors. Love and a hug, Samara

  40. Hi Rachelle (Martha), Happy New year! I like your blog :) new follower!
    First, I want to say HOORAY for you being a Breast CA Survivor, way to go, you fought a good fight and succeeded! Love your pic, you look lovely!

    BEAUTIFUL card! Your coloring is WONDERFUL. AWESOME choice of papers!

    WAY COOL deal on that punch!
    I LOVE IT, when you make a great find in a thrift store like that! I was "thrifting" back when I was a teenager, long before it became a trendy thing to do, then it became almost a norm, most people do shop thrift stores now from time to time.
