The Wrinklies Blog Hop

Hello everyone.  It's a big day over at the Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge Blog.  Kerry has a new release of stamps and we are having a blog hop to celebrate!

OK, so here are the blog hop rules ... yes, I know, we all hate rules but you gotta have a few lol.

1)  Visit each of the DT members in order and leave a comment on each of their blog hop posts

2)  Once you have finished the hop, leave a comment on the challenge blog telling us which is your most favorite of the new images

3)  Display the blog hop banner on your blog, either in a post or on your sidebar

That's it ... easy peasy, huh?  The hop will close at 12 pm midday GMT on Monday, September 12.  The winners will be announced at 9 am GMT on Tuesday, September 13 on the Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge Blog.  You should have arrived at my blog from Tams' blog.  If not, please go back and start at Kerry's blog.


I have used the new Grow Old With Me Wrinkley stamp on my card today.  I've colored this sweet couple with copics and colored pencils and paper pieced their chair.  I've added some ribbon and a bow.  The sentiment comes with this stamp, along with two other fabulous sentiments. 

Today is my last post as a Ladybug as I have decided to step down from the DT.  This was my very first DT and I want to thank Kerry for giving me the chance to design for her.  You girls have such enormous talent!  We started off as strangers with a love of stamping and have become (I think) a close group of supportive, fabulous friends.  You girls are amazing and I'll still be checking you out in blogland :) 

So, the next DT you want to visit on this hop is the lovely Gaelle.  I hope you enjoy the hop and good luck!

Thank you for stopping by.

Stamp:  Ladybug Crafts Ink - Grow Old With Me Wrinkley
Paper:  October Afternoon; Bazzill
Other:  Copics, Prismacolor pencils, gamsol, black glaze pen, ribbon, embossing folder

  29. OMG!!! This reminds me of a comment I made to my 17 yr old the other day...Saw two older folks crossing the street holding hands and I said "ahh, I hope your dad and I are like that when we are that old", she rolled her yes at me. Hmf! ;-) Cute!
