In Paris mini Blog Hop

To keep up the celebrations - we're having another blog hop!!  Come hop around with us "in Paris" this week with a New Release Blog Hop!!  Leave a comment as you go for extra chances to win!  You have until February 27th to complete the hop and we'll post the winners on February 29th.

You should have arrived here from the Uber Talented Barbara .
However, if you get lost along the way you can see the complete list HERE.

Have you heard the big news?  WhimsyMake it Crafty and Little Miss Muffet Stamps have come together to give you a little romance in Paris this Valentine season!  You can join the festivities and read all about it on the ThreeCompaniesTeamUp blog.  But wait... have you heard the really big news?!  Little Miss Muffet Stamps has now released images in RUBBER!  That's right - so pop on over HERE to get your rubber fix.  :D

The gorgeous papers are Melissa Frances '5th Avenue' these really are soooooo beautiful & I sobbed a wee bit cutting them :0( I edged the paper with vintage photo distress ink & layered onto pink & green card from my stash.

Prima 'Ruby' flower in the corner of the image & I stamped one of Whimsy's new postage stamp in the corner of the card. Muslin fabric is from my stash & I tied a scrap piece into a bow in the bottom corner.

The gorgeous chipboard that the new Whimsy sentiment is on is from Make It Crafty & the sentiments & die cut shapes have all been made to co-ordinate together perfectly. The chipboard shape I painted white.
This gorgeous image is of course from the new Paris Release over at Little Miss Muffet, this is 
'Le Parfum des Roses' & she is one of the new rubber stamps that have been released for all you rubber addicts out there. She was of course coloured with Copics.

The pink pearls, gingham ribbon & heart lace are all from my stash. The paper & flower are from
My Crafty Heart.........pop on over as Teresa has added new items & some yummy cutie stamps.

Your next stop on the hop is the lovely Trina.

We have even more activities planned for the rest of the month too so be sure to check back often and bask in all the inspiration.  Oh-la-la!  Also, don't miss out on extra prizes - come participate in the Joint Release challenge at:
ThreeCompaniesTeamUp - the theme is "LOVE"

Then check out all the Paris themed New Releases at:
