Sugar Nellie Kathy Hare Blog Hop!


Hello and welcome to the Sugar Nellie Blog Hop to introduce you to our newest illustrator Kathy Hare. This artist has an amazing variety of styles sure to please everyone.

The hop starts at the Sugar Nellie blog HERE, so if you didn't start there, you may want to go back and start at the beginning.  If you came from the Sugar Nellie blog then you are on the right track.   Here is the order of the hop in case you get lost.

Dena (Me)

My card features the image "Searching". 

Card Ingredients:

Stamps:  Sugar Nellie-Kathy Hare "Searching", Hero Arts Sentiment
Inks:  Distressed inks and Watercolor paper
Paper:  Bo Bunny and Melissa Frances
Tools:  Cricut (Flower and Leaves), Sewing machine
Embellies:  Rhinestones, button, ribbon, stardust stickles

I used the stickles on the clouds just for a bit of whimsy.  The flower is sewn just like the rest of the card, boy that was hard! ha ha!  I had to put the sentiment "Thinking of You" because the girl just looks like she is  "thinking" ha ha! 

Your next stop is DONALDA

I'm sure she has something fabulous to show you so hop on over to her blog now!

Thanks for stopping by! You will love these stamps! They can be found at Funkykits.

So how do you like my new blog layout? Isn't it cute?  My very sweet friend Martine did it for me. I think she did a fantastic job and I love it to pieces!!!!!! Thanks girl!!!!

Hugs, Dena

I like your new blog layout very much as it's very straightforward & showcases your work beautifully without all the attention being focussed on the blog design. It's subtlety complements your style.
Your Kathy Hare card is lovely - the black leaves just set off all the colours & the ribbon, lace & button make such a difference with the way that they accent the whole.
Thanks for all your hard work.
