Seasons Givings Blog Hop – Past, Present, and Future

Hello and welcome!

If this is your first time to my blog, I’m so glad you’re here! I feel so blessed to be a part of this year’s Seasons Givings Blog Hop.

What an honor it is to have had a year of such tremendous personal growth and be able to look back at all the wonderful things that have been experienced this past year. I’m so grateful for all the relationships forged in the commonness of crafting. Thank you all for your support this past year, your current support, and your constant support. To celebrate the past, present, and future, I created a double slider card sharing the seasons. I thought it would be appropriate for a Seasons Givings blog hop. 🙂

I was scrolling for inspiration and came across the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge and thought the colors were perfect for the card I wanted to make for today’s blog hop (at least the winter portion of the card, anyway).

I stamped and colored the images using Copic markers – I apologize, I did not write the colors down this time – I used quite a few of them and thought that for a blog hop of this magnitude, I should keep my post simple.

The panel on the left represents the fall – the past; the center is winter – the present; and the panel on the right represents the spring – the future. All products used will be linked below :). I ink-blended using the following Distress Oxide Inks: Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade (fall), Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon (winter), Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers (spring).


GIVEAWAY:

To give back to my readers, I’m doing a closed-box giveaway of new and lightly used stamps and dies. There will be a few sets in there for you to enjoy. I haven’t put the box together yet, but I plan on putting at least 5 stamp sets in it along with coordinating dies if I have them. ❤ My giveaway will close on Saturday, January 5th at 11:59pm. The winner will be randomly selected and posted on my blog in a new post on January 6th. I will do my best to contact the winner if the information is provided (associated with your blog account) – please check back in case it isn’t.


BLOG HOP LIST:



Thank you all for stopping by today! I wish you all an amazing New Year! May you be blessed with love, joy, and success in all you do!

XOXO,

Blog Signature

    1. Yes you can, Sammi! I’m a firm believer! Just stamp more than you think you’ll need and color away! I usually don’t have a plan sketched, just a basic concept and then I throw myself in and do it. 😊
