We’re On The Hop Again – Do I Smell Candy????


Welcome to the Wild Rose Studio FESTIVE FROLICS Blog Hop :-)

Dulcie, the designer and owner of the Wild Rose Studio, has recently released some gorgeous new Christmas stamps and we thought we would celebrate with a hop to show you the new designs and also give you a chance to win some of these lovely stamps too :-)

And you can check out all of the new Christmas Designs right here.


And if you fancy joining in with the Festive Frolics theme, you will have a chance to win this FABULOUS Grand Prize. You don't even  have to use a Wild Rose Studio image,  but if you have one we would love to see it :-)



AND there will be candy at every stop along the way.

All you have to do is make a Christmas card/creation and link it with the Linky on the Wild Rose Studio Blog
You have until Monday 17th October 9 am UK time ( 8 am CET ) to join in :-)

So let’s start the hop peeps.

If you arrived here from the sweetness that is Dulcie’s Blog which is The Wild Rose Studio Blog,  then you are in the right place and going in the right direction, but if not, nip back to the Wild Rose Studio Blog to start the hop :)

So what did I do then?

Picture 009c copy 

Well I went with a lilac and grey theme and I used this cute lil fella here …..

Picture 013c copy

His name is Pickle (awww) and he is one of the new releases.
I coloured him with Copics in these colours ..

BV0000, BV000, BV00, BV02, BV04, BV13, C00, C1, C3, C5, R11, R20.., Y15. Y35,

Not sure if you can just about make it out but I added a bit of Glossy Accents under his foot to make it look like he was skating on ice :)

Picture 012c copy

The papers I used are from the oh so talented and also very lovely Summer Driggs (this special lady creates these lovely kits and gives them to us all to use completely free – thank you Summer x) .

I used papers from the Dryer Lint At Tiffany's kit.

And guess what else I used again!!

Oh yes, I still cannot help myself and the old  Magnolia leaf and swirl die had made another appearance.
Poor thing is SOOO overworked!!!

And that pretty ribbon is 25mm large check purple ribbon  which I topped off with a sparkly button and both are from The Ribbon Girl

So that’s my card all done.

I had a great time at Port Sunlight on Saturday and hello to the lovely ladies who came to say hi :) Phew it was busy!!!
More about it tomorrow.

Ok now on with the hoppity hop!!

From here you need to hop over to the lovely Sarpreet’s Blog to continue your journey

If you would like a chance to win your very own Pickle Skating  then please make sure you leave a comment on all the DT blogs AND make a card with the Festive Frolics theme, which you will need to link with the linky HERE :-)

Thanks for looking , hope you enjoy the hop and good luck to all :-)

Have the best day and I’ll see you tomorrow and huggiest of hugs to all; xxx
