Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Anniversary Blog Hop!

Welcome to the LINDSAY'S STAMP STUFF Anniversary Blog Hop! Wasn't Tanya's project great?! If you didn't come from Tanya's blog, be sure to visit Lindsay's blog and start the hop from the beginning. If you get lost along the hop, you can always see the list on Lindsay's blog.
There is so much happening this week!!! Lindsay is hosting a CROP over at MyGraficO. It started Tuesday, and will continue on through Thursday. She has several fun challenges posted there with fun freebies each day-but get the freebies while they are free because at the end of the crop, they will go into for sale sets that you can buy. If you haven't already joined MyGraficO or the crop, click HERE to find the instructions and links on how do it.
Now, for my project! This is another one of those projects I started and never finished. I was inspired by a wall hanging in an old Country Marketplace magazine (Holiday 2006) done by Katie Estvold of Sparrow's Cottage. Rather than trace and cut out her pattern, I printed and cut out stamps from LINDSAY'S STAMP STUFF to use instead. I used the crow from the CREEPY CROW SET, the house from the PRETTY PRIMITIVES SET, and a flower from the DOODLE FLOWERS SET. I started by cutting my borders, corners and background (bo bunny, Daisy D). I printed the crow on the red paper, so he would have some nice color. The house and flower were printed on white card stock, (GP)then colored with my bic mark-its. I cut the hill from cream card stock (Staples) and the hilltop and leaves were cut from the red paper. I cut the word HOME using my cricut with the George cartridge. I glued everything down onto an old pizza box (way to recycle!) and drew in the flower stem, stamen and hanger for the house. I noticed the patterned paper had white flowers which didn't go well with the cream colors, so I aged the whole piece with Distress Ink (antique linen) and liked it much better. I then cut the box to size and glued the buttons in the corners, added my hanger and done! The finished piece measures 10x12 inches.
Now lets start hoppin! You have a chance to win a digital stamp set on every DT members blog! Leave a comment for one chance to win- that is all you have to do! If you want a second chance to win place this fan badge on your blog and leave another comment.

Now get hoppin! Be sure to leave some love so you can win some stamp sets, don’t worry, if you buy something during the 50% off sale and end up winning the same set, Lindsay will let you pick a different one. I am giving away the CREEPY CROW SET.
To continue on your blog hop, go to Cindi's Blog, where I'm sure you will find a fun, fabulous project!
