A HOPPIN' Thanks to IBFS!!

Hello from Danni's blog and welcome to our HOP! I have to say, blog hops are one of my favorite things about blog-land, and this one is very special. It's a shout-out & THANK YOU to Della of I Brake For Stamps (IBFS), who is a huge behind the scenes helper for Susana's Custom Art & Card Design -- she makes all the stamps! All the DT's blogs today are showcasing a different project featuring a stamp from Della's store, so make sure and hop all the way through to see it all!!

Here are some details about my card (read on for details about PRIZES and COUPON CODES too!). The IBFS image I chose for today's gala is one of the Little Rascals; meet Wimke. Is he not the cutest?! Well, actually all the Little Rascals are pretty stinkin' cute, but Wimke really caught my eye. I have two little boys so I am always eager for good boy images. I can just picture him - he's sitting there making sure his head is still attached after he fell off the swings at the end of a dirty, busy, crazy day of playing... Projecting? Moi?? LOL!

But I digress! I chose to use the MOJO99 sketch for my card today, it's a neat one, very unique. I didn't have it in front of me when I was working so I had to go from memory - I didn't do tooooooo bad, heehee. I stamped Wimke in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. Did some highlighting with the Ranger white gel pen when all the coloring was done. Cut and matted the sky section using Petite Oval Nestabilities. The rest of the card is pretty straightforward, I kept to the sketch as best I could. Kaisercraft rhinestone accents underneath the main image area. The sentiment is from Lilac City Designs, this little guy just HAD to have that one on his card. Viola!

Now for the good stuff!! There will be a prize for one LUCKY hopper, but you have to leave a comment on every blog for the chance to win. The winner will be picked randomly from comments left on one of the DT's blog's--but it's a MYSTERY as to who's blog it come from! The prize up for grabs are four IBFS stamps, along with a brand new Ranger Heat Gun--it heats quickly & does NOT blow your embossing powder around--it's FANTASTIC!

Even if you aren't chosen for the big prize, you're still a winner! Della is offering a coupon code for 15% off purchases at IBFS only (coupon code NOT valid at SCACD store). Enter BLOGHOP at checkout to receive your discount! I love when I can make my own sale.

Now go on & get back to hoppin'!! Your next stop is TERI at TeriBeri's Creations! If you are just joining in, you can go back to Suzanne's blog to start from the beginning.
