Crafter's Companion Angelica Release Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to the Crafter's Companion International Blog Hop

Crafter's Companion has a fabulous new release this week, with nine new stamp sets and a coordinating CD-ROM. The US and UK teams have gotten together to celebrate this fun launch with an International Blog Hop.

And there is even a prize to win for just hopping around with us!
4 EZ-Mount sets (image shown below) of our choice worth $40, prize will be awarded to ONE winner, drawn from a random commenter on a US team member's blog! The US prize is open to US residents only and participants have until Wed, Feb 6 at 9:00 PM PST to enter. Winner will be announced on CC USA blog on Thursday.

Now, onto my card:

I used this cutie from the Angelica and Friends set along with a sentiment that just melts my heart.  Ah, how sweet is she?! I colored her in using Spectrum Noir markers and then carefully cut her out.  I love the quality of the Ultra Smooth Card Stock with these markers - so crisp and bright.

I punched out the sentiment and added it to a fun piece I die cut.  I can just picture my daughter doing this - she is constantly putting on my Ugg boots at home and trying to walk in them (she's 3), so this image grabbed me right away and made me smile.

Now it's time to hop around and win! Have fun and good luck!
