39 & Glamorous Blog Hop!


Welcome to Heartstring Designs and The 39 & Glamorous Blog Hop!. You should be arriving here from Vickie, if you just stumbled here and would like to hop from the beginning, click HERE to start over. This is a fantastic hop with many very talented people and there are so many prizes!  Along with the giveaways and surprises available at many of the hops there is also a line-up of sponsors that have kindly donated their products to some lucky winners.  So, sit back, take your time and browse through all these amazing blogs and what they have to offer.
Before I get started and share with you my creation and a special bonus prize for EVERYONE who is hopping today, I wanted to send a special thank you to Bonnie for all her hard work and also to our sponsors.
 (Retreat stay, MUST complete hop and challenge)
And now, here is what I created to share with you today.  I decided to make something that I felt was sort of grungy-elegant.  Would that be "grunegant"?  Anyway, I used one of my very own digi-stamps, colored it with copic markers and added a lot of texturing and layering to create the card you see here.  I absolutely love my ATG gun adhesive to make all those layers stay stuck!
I also used the Sweethearts Cricut Cart to cut out the lock and key.  Let's take a closer look at the digi-stamp:
Would you like to have this digi stamp absolutely free?  Well, you can have this one or any other one of your choosing simply by popping over to my stamp site, Shelley Bean Stamps.  I have a promotion going there now where if you share my stamp site with your friends on your blog or social networking site, leave a comment that you did over there, I will personally send you the free digi of your choice.  Seriously.  That's all there is to it.  What could be easier than that?  It is my thank you for telling everyone about what I have to offer.  Please remember in order to receive the free digi, you must pop over there to leave the comment. 

But, hey...this isn't all about me.  There are still a whole lotta wonderful blogs to hop through.  So, you better get hoppin'!!
Next along the path is Janie
 
I hope you choose to visit my blog again. I would be very flattered if you decided to become a follower!
