Sweet Pea Stamps Blog Hop Day 2…let’s hop!

2010 January 28

Wow guys!  What a rockin' day 1 blog hop!  I don't know about you, but I had fun!  And now, on to Day 2 of Sweet Pea Stamps DT blog hop, yea!!!!  I know you want to see today's feature card, but let me give you the details of the blog hop first, ok?!

Welcome to  Sweet Pea Stamps DT blog hop day 2!  If you would like to start at the beginning of the blog hop, go here to the Sweet Pea Stamps blog.

Today is the last day of the hop and the DT will be featuring more images from Sweet Pea Stamps newest releases, which are available for purchase today!  Woohoo!

To be entered into a drawing to win a $10 gift card from Sweet Pea Stamps  you will need to leave a comment on EACH DT member's blog!    So be sure to visit all the blogs on today's hop, and leave a comment at EACH DT member's blog!  

Here is a complete list of today's blog participants:








Remember, to be eligible to be in the drawing,

you MUST post a comment on each blog!

One winner will be picked from Tuesday's posts, and one winner will be picked from Thursday's post. So be sure to leave a comment on each blog, each day for a chance to win. Comments must be posted by 12am EST. Friday, January 30th. Winners will be announced on the Sweet Pea Stamps blog.

Now on to my card for today's blog hop :).   It features the newly released ©ching-chou kuik's Easter Ocean.

I used copics to color everything except the background (of the stamped image).  I used H2O's and a waterbrush.  Something a little different.  I also used colors that I don't generally tend to gravitate to.  If you've visited my blog before, you know that I have a hard time using a lot of embellishments.  Not that I don't love those, I do.  I just over analyze I think, lol.  However, I try :).  The DP is from the Magnolia line by My Minds Eye. 

What do you think?  I wasn't too happy while I was coloring her up, but I think the card turned out ok.  Now are you ready to hop on to the next stop for more eye candy? 



And please check out the beautiful Haiti relief stamp available here.   Lynette, the owner of Sweet Pea Stamps is graciously donating 50% of the proceeds to Doctors Without Borders.  It's a great way to help the people of Haiti and get a beautiful stamp!

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you had as much fun as the DT did and that you will be inspired to share your creations with us.   

Happy stamping!

    It's soooo pretty, love the layout and the coloring is amazint!

    Micki, this is lovely! I don't like to use a lot of embellishments either, so this is just my style. With an image as pretty and as well colored as this, a lot of embellishments would just get in the way.

    Cute cute card for easter.

  20. January 28, 2010

    This is beautiful and such an unuasual easter card but could be used anytime , I know what you mean about embellishments, I haverecently started trying to use more and find it hard as I feel they often make the card look cluttered and detract from the image but you have the balance just right, brilliant.Thanks for sharing Julye

    Micki I too struggle with embellishements. Too many, not enough, wrong color, will this work….. Your card is gorgeous. I bet the H2O background adds just the right amount of shimmer too.
    stamp on…

    Wow Micki, you have brought Eastern Oceon to life with your fantastic colouring and what a super layout and floral detail to compliment her to perfection.
