As you will soon see from this hop, the frequent sketches are phenomenal and the artwork in the gallery oozes inspiration for all! Best of all, it is like having a second family scattered all over the world!

Now on to the HOP! Here is the sketch that I am showcasing for the hop:



And here is my example:



I used My Mind's Eye "Lime Twist - Life of the Party" papers, "Daisybella" stamp from Stamping Bella, and all inks and embellishments from Close To My Heart. (butterfly cutout unknown)

Margaret said...

Hi Andrea, I love your take on the sketch and the way you turned the card! Super card. I'm not actually a big 'brand' person, as I tend to look for papers that match the theme I want to scrap. Must say though that Bo Bunny has nice quality papers!

Betty Anne said...

Thank you so much for hosting the Let's Scrap blog hop. I love the card you made, the stamped image is just to cute. My favorite company is Graphic 45.

jenessa said...

Adorable card! I've been a member of LS, and I've joined your blog =) Thanks for being a fellow host...this will be such a fun hop! Only one favorite lol? Well if I have to narrow it down it would be 2...BG and MME

bakscrap said...

Hi Andrea, I am a follower and as you know, a member of Let's Scrap. Thanks for hosting a stop on the hop. I guess if I had to choose a favorite, it would probably be BoBunny. But I have the most Basic Grey in my stash.

Desire Fourie said...

Hi Andie. Its my first time visit here and I love it. I have become a follower here. Loving your sketch for the blog hop and your take on it is gorgeous, not to speak of the yummy candy. My favourite brand is Basic Grey - it has been for nearly 7 years now, but its just difficult to find it at a reasonable price here in South Africa.
Would love to see you over at www.desiref.blogspot.com in sunny South Africa.
Hugs
Desire

Carol Sue said...

Andie, What a sweet card! Just love it! I have been a member of LS for awhile and am now following you here!
I don't really know my favorite scrapbook company...I tend to buy whatever strikes me.

Sherri said...

hands down, basic grey, but I like all sorts of company papers. Your card is really cute. Ilike how you turned it on it's side to use it

Lara Hanna said...

I do love 7Gypsey sticker sheets. They are rather addictive. Then I must admit I love MME, Bo Bunny, Simple Stores and loads more ...

anne g-i said...

My poor little brain is getting overwhelmed by all the fabulous examples - love your card! Beautiful coloring! I am a follower and a LS member and my fav product line is prob. Graphic 45, or maybe anything Tim Holtz but then there's Cosmo Cricket...

Scrappin' Annie said...

Hi thanks for the wonderful blog hop. I have just become a follower and look forward to seeing more gorgeous cards. Love your example. My favourite is Kaisercraft - and not just because its Australian...

Hi Andrea, I love this sketch and card and Basic Gray has always been one of my favourites

Kathy said...

Hi, Andrea! Love your interpretaion of the sketch! Like it turned on its side, and your papers and stamp are fabulous!
I am a long-time LS member, and I follow your blog. Thanks so much for being a host on the hop!
I love so many manus, but I guess if I had to name one, it would be Basic Grey, since I own every collection they have made, and when I am in doubt what paper to use, I pull one of my BG files and am always happy with the results! Echo Park runs a close second!

Jen Leeflang said...

Andie - I love the riot of spring coplours you have used as your palette! and such a great interpretation of the sketch! Thanks for sharing! I have just become your newest follower!

Hey! Cute card! I love that MME paper. My fave companies are... ALL OF THEM! No seriously. Its hard to pick a fave. I would say Tim Holtz, Cosmo Cricket, Fancy Pants, and MME are in my top 5.

I follow and am an LS member :)

Chriss America Real said...

Hop, hop, hop...oh no! I have to pick a favorite company? Yikes! Hum...I really love Webster papers, I also use a lot of Bo Bunny & Echo Park...oh I can't choose! Am I disqualified? Oh wait! Does Copic count? I love my copic sketch markers more than I love my husband!
Hugs,
Chriss

Cathy said...

I am now a follower. How do I pick just ONE fav manufacturer? There are sooooooooooooo many that I like and use. I guess it so depends on what I'm scrapping as to who is on top. But then if you look how much paper I have by one particular one then they would be tops... Cosmo Cricket.
