Season of Givings Blog Hop {LOTS of Blogcandy}

Happy New Year! 2013 is going to be a GREAT year!! I just know it. Why not start it off with a fun, crafty post. I feel pretty lucky to be a part of this fantastic event and it's ALL FOR YOU!!! Latisha Yoast is the brain child behind this "pay it forward" blog hop. 

Welcome to the Seasons Givings Blog Hop!  This hop is going to be a little bit different, in the fact that every single person on the list below, is giving something away.  All you need to do, is go to their blog, and leave a comment.  Really, really easy. You can choose to stop by all of the participants or just some of them. Either way, whoever you stop by to see...just leave a comment and you could win their Blog Candy.   

Now grab a cup of coffee, or tea, or maybe some hot chocolate, whatever your favorite is, and start hopping.  

Here is to starting off the year 2013 in a fun way!


Today, I have an ALM card to share. She's one of the newest gals to join the MFT family and the stamp set is called, You're My Cup of Tea. I cut out some Rectangle Stax 1 & 2, one in Natural cs and the other with x-press Blending cs. I stamped her onto the  x-press  Blending cs layer and then colored her up with Copics. I gave pleats a try on her skirt. I still need some practice, but I'm pretty proud of myself. I've also added lots of shading and even gave her giant mug some polka dots (just dabbed on my colorless Blender). 


The sketch is this month's MFT Guest Designer contest. Check out all the details HERE...but in a nut shell, play along, create something FANTASTIC using this sketch AND you could be our next Guest Designer and win $200 worth of product!

Here's the sketch:

Here are a few detail shots of my the embellies I created.(All links are listed below!) LOVE the Layered Rose and Royal Leaves Die-namics. I topped it with a Natural Button (to match the Natural cs I used on my layers) and some hemp twine that I custom dyed (colored with an R15 Copic marker). 


And of course, I tucked in a couple of Fishtail Flags (Original and the Layers) Stax Die-namics. They look great layered up like that.

All of my edges were touched with a good sponging of Tea Dye Ink. 

There is a FUN and BIG announcement over on the MFT Blog today....be sure to hop on over there to read all about it. 


OK, enough chit chat....There is a ton to see and WIN today. Off you go. Good Luck and don't forget to comment. 

Here's what you could win from me (it's all NEW and unused product that I would love to send your way). It's a mix of MFT and Unity Stamp Co. product. 

You have until Tuesday Jan. 8 at Noon (EST) to leave a comment. I will post a winner on Wednesday, Jan.9, 2013!

Lisa Henke <----YOU ARE HERE

contest is now closed! thanks so much for stopping by and leaving such kind words. I will be posting the winner later today. Thank-you!

Thanks so much.
