Shirleys2Girls Blog Hop

BLOG HOP!
NOVEMBER 4th-7th



The Blog Hop ends on Nov. 7 at 12:00 A.M. PST.


Welcome to the S2G "All About Thanks" Blog Hop! If you arrived here from the talented MELISSA, then you're in the right place. If not, start at the beginning at the S2G Challenge Blog. You can also return there if you happen to get "lost" along the hop.
Four of the DT members have been chosen as a "Secret Prize" blog. By leaving comments on every DT member's blog, you increase your chances of winning.
Each DT member will tell you what she is thankful for and also share a papercrafting tip with you as our personal thank you to our hop participants and followers.

That is easy I am thankful for my Family and that everyone is in good Health.

My Tip is to make sure you use good paper when you are stamping and coloring whether it be digital or stamped images. Believe me I've tried all the papers out there and you get what you pay for. Currently my favorites are for pencils / gamsol is Papertrey Ink White cardstock and when I use my copics I love the new Copic Blend cardstock its great. This image I am showing you today has the Copic Blend since I used markers. You cannot use pencils on this cardstock it's too smooth.

This image along with some more are available at the Shirleys2Girls website. This one is #316 Heaps of Love isn't she too cute. Remember the adorable Princess one I had a few weeks ago. She is the same little girl. I think I have one more of her to show you in a week or two also. As I said she is colored with Copics and her little bowl is 3d. I added lacquer to her glasses to make them look real.

Next stop on the Hop is the creative TRACEY! Be sure to leave a comment telling us what you are thankful for to be eligible for prizes. Please enter our challenge this week, too. The Twist is to use the word "Thanks" on your card. Link your creation HERE. Thanks so much for joining in our "All About Thanks" Blog Hop! I hope you enjoy your visit to our DT's blogs.

Here is our Blog Hop order in case you lose your way
