Blog Hop: Step it Up!

Welcome! From this point forward we are simplifying things. All of our hops will be of a simple card and a stepped up one. We will each have our own interpretation of what this means to us.  I hope you find this helpful and come back each month for inspiration.

This was harder than I thought (mainly because I'm currently limited on accessories) and as it turns out I prefer the simpler one. I definitely need some practice with the lace. Let me know which one you like best. For fun, click on the image and flip back and forth to compare. As always, we appreciate your feedback.

  1. Both of these are fantastic! Great job!

  2. These are both beautiful, but I love the one on the right. The addition of the lace and the speckles on the background really make the card pop! Thanks for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

    1. Thanks Jen! The one on the right is growing on me.

    Hi Julie, I like both cards!

  4. I like the accents of red, but I do also like the 'plain' one. Great job on the lace! :)


Thank you for your positive thoughts.
