The Craft's Meow January Blog Hop and a SALE!


Hi there! Welcome to The Craft's Meow January Blog Hop! Our theme for this month's Blog Hop is to use TCM Retiring Sets on our cards. If you've just come from Ivana's blog then you are in the right place. If not, please start from The Craft's Meow Store Blog.

The Craft's Meow

I chose I've Got Your Number to use on my card. I know this isn't my usual style, but my friend's miracle premie baby just turned 8 months. (And this was a perfect excuse to try and made a masculine themed card for a little tot.) Their family went through so many things last year and through it all, they're just so happy that little Ollie is doing so well. So I made a card to celebrate his 8th month-sary...or should I say 8th month birthday? I wasn't sure, so I hope this is ok.


For the background, I used Typically Teen. Here's a great comparison by the way on three inks that I've used. Same image, different inks. The red, which turned out to be the smoothest is from Hero Arts Shadow Ink, the light blue is Color Box Chalk Ink, and the navy is from Papertrey Ink.


 By the way, did you know that TCM has a SALE going on? And aside from what's already on sale, Lisa has decided to give you a bit more! Take an additional 15% off the already reduced prices of our retiring stamp sets, many of which have been marked down up to 50% off! The code to enter at checkout is Winter15. The sale goes through 11:59 pm Pacific on Friday, January 11th.

And not only that! She's also offering a prize... a retiring stamp set of choice (in stock only)... drawn from one comment left on the store blog hop post. The competition will go through 9:00 pm Pacific on Wednesday, January 9th.

What are you waiting for?! Come join us for a chance to win! If you're all done here, you can head on over to Jen's blog for more inspiration! Thanks for stopping by today! I'll see you again next time! :)
