Lord of the Season blog hop!

Happy Friday!

Tonight we're showcasing Nina Brackett's gorgeous Lord of the Season stamp set in another GinaK blog hop! I adore this set of Nina's because the images are so fun to color - and the sentiments, well they're some of my favorites too!

(you can click on any photo to see a larger view)

My second card uses a partial image of Nina's - I just inked the bottom of one of her topiaries... isn't it pretty as a flower pot?




You can see that I had some fun with Nestabilities Pierceability dies on this card. I haven't used them before and this patterned seemed to work well with Nina's elegant images.

Both Nina and Gina will be hosting a giveaway of this beautiful stamp set on their blogs tonight too - so be sure to leave a comment on their sites to be entered for a chance to win!
