Impression Obsession Blog Hop Day 1


Welcome to Day 1 of the Impression Obsession 2014 Spring Release Designer Hop!
 
We have some beautiful CHA peeks to share AND Gift Certificates to give away each day!!!
The hop will start each day with a list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog at 6am EST. Each day pay us a visit and then head over and see our fabulous IO Design Team’s projects with our new stamps & dies on their blogs (only one comment per blog per day please). The more blogs you visit each day the better chance you will have to win!
 
Every day (Monday Jan 6th – Friday Jan 10th) one of the blogs will be chosen randomly and a winner will be selected from comments on that blog at 10pm CT. The winner will be announced the following day along with the participating blogs for that day.
 
Two prizes will be awarded on the last day of the hop. One will be for Friday’s comments and another will be chosen from all the comments left throughout the week. So if you miss a day or time deadline your comments will still count for a chance to win a $25 Impression Obsession Gift Certificate! Both Friday winners will be announced on the IO Blog on Saturday.
 
If you have any questions please email Jeanne.

For my first card, I wanted to share one of the new Gary Robertson images called Bunny With Basket (H1953).  To make the card, I colored the outside edges of the various parts of the scene with Distress Markers and then softened the color with a waterbrush.  Gary's images are just perfect for coloring!

Be sure to check out the other blogs on the hop, and thanks for stopping by!

Today's hop list:
