May You Have a Sweet Ride Through Life


Welcome to Day 1 of the Impression Obsession 2014 Spring Die Hop!
We have some beautiful new dies 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 here and then head over and see our fabulous IO Design Team’s projects with our new 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 a $25 Impression Obsession Gift Certificate!!!

Every day (Tuesday, March 25th – Thursday, March 27th) 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 Thursday’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 Thursday winners will be announced on the IO Blog on Friday.
If you have any questions please email Jeanne.
All of the new dies you'll be seeing on the hop are available NOW!

Today’s hop list:

Laura Fulcher - you are here

I absolutely love when there are dies that coordinate with stamps because I really hate cutting out images, and to tell the truth, I am not very good at it.  I can't imagine how hard it would have been if I had had to cut out  my bicycle by hand.  Instead, I  cut out the bicycle from the Bicycle die set (DIE 145-Z) and then stamped the bike from the CL255 Riding Pretty clear set on top of it.  I then colored it with Copic markers and then added some flowers that I had stamped and cut from the same stamp and die sets.  To finish the card, I added some Basic Grey paper and some street washi tape I got from Queen and Company.  I don't know if you can read the saying from the stamp set, but it says, " May you have a sweet ride through life."

I will see you again tomorrow with a new card!
