FCD Blog Hop: Giving Thanks (+BLOG CANDY!!)

Hello and welcome to another FireCracker Designs by Pamela blog hop! This month we thought it would make good sense if our cards and projects had a THANK YOU theme, considering Thanksgiving is right around the corner! And for my card, I decided to use my favorite FCD set, one that I'm so THANKFUL that Pamela designed - Theater Lights! Oh how I love this set. *sigh* And the sentiment I used is one that I actually suggested to Pamela - "Thanks for propping me up." heh heh You see, I used to volunteer backstage with my hometown community theater group, and would often be propmistress - so - I just loved this saying to be part of a theater set. :-D The panel of roses on the card is stamped and colored, and for the theater masks, I did something I've been meaning to try for ages - I stamped it on some text in a magazine! My friend (and former FCD guest designer) Lydia introduced me to this, she is a master at reanimating things in her crafts! The color combo - chocolate, olive, cream & dark red - came from this week's Color Throwdown Challenge - one of my favorite blog challenges!

Now that the card deets are out of the way, let me tell you a little more about this month's blog hop. Pamela has very generously given the ENTIRE team blog candy to hand out!!! I get to giveaway a set that is SO PERFECT for this time of year, Clearly Calendar!I bet you could make some adorable 2010 calendar gifts with this set! So leave me a comment and I'll pick one winner after the hop ends on Monday night.

And if you've hopped with us before, you know the drill - this is a circular hop, so wherever you begin is where you'll return when you finish! So hop around the full circle and leave comments as you go, there's lots of yummy stampy goodness up for grabs. From here, go see what the boss-lady herself is up to at Pamela's Blog!!!

And thanks for stopping by today!

  13. I have been noticing a lot of people are stamping on newsprinting or magazine print etc. I really like how it looks. I have not done that but I am going to give it a try. It is funny but I often see others do a certain technique and I love it but when I do it I don't like it. Guess that is the nature of the beast, huh?
