ONE DAY BLOG HOP WITH SQUIGGLEFLY AND INGER HARDING

Good Morning! Welcome to our Squigglefly~ Sneak Peek Blog Hop!
Today we are sharing with you sneak peeks of our release tomorrow over at the SQUIGGLEFLY STORE

If you just happened along-make sure to go back and start at the beginning which is at the SQUIGGLEFLY CHALLENGE BLOG.  If you hop all the way through you will have several chances to win some prizes, get inspired, and have some fun!  SF will be offering a prize of five of the new digi image and who wouldn't want them!
 CARD 1 - Inger Harding
I have used A JOYFUL CHRISTMAS - CUT OUTS by artist INGER HARDING.  I did a clip art of the sledding scene I wanted to use and printed it in sepia tones (see card below as well) as well as the original colors.  I chose a 6x6 layout area so I used my favorite photo program from Serif to get the size image I wanted.  I then used my Graphic 45 CHRISTMAS PAST pad that I had stashed for Christmas projects this year to do some layering.  Yes, it's probably a year old!  The only copic pen I used anywhere on either card was to use E31 to color the 6 pearls - I wanted a sepia tone to complete the card.
CARD 2 - Inger Harding
These 2 cards went together so fast, I couldn't believe it.  I rarely use clip art and Inger's digs are so beautiful one can't help themselves just dive in and start the Christmas card production.  Only one warning, if you are like me, you will want to find somewhere to use your copics or go into complete withdrawal!  

But these images are so beautiful - I just feel great about my completing both cards so quickly and elegantly.

Be sure to visit Squigglefly's shop to see the debut of Inger's new paper line with these clip arts as well.  And you will want to visit Inger Harding's blog as well because she is giving away prizes - BIG TIME!!! Your next stop is Pat's blog!

Thank you for stopping by today and being part of our Squigglefly Sneak Peek Blog Hop.

Just to review, here is our entire blog hop!

Linda I love how you showed the same image is such different ways. They are both so beautiful! Your first card uses such pretty background papers and I love the multi-looped bow!
