{A Muse Studio Blog Hop and Blog Candy}





Hello and welcome to my blog! Today I am joining a wonderful group of my fellow A Muse Studio consultants in a blog hop filled with inspiration and ideas.  I am thrilled to be a part of such an amazing group of crafters!   If you are participating in the blog hop, you should have come from Katie Skiff's blog and if not, then you should start from the beginning with Samantha's blog until
you come to my blog.
       Today my card features one of my favorite A|S items thus far, the oh so cute butterfly dies.  These dies come in 3 sizes perfect for layering, and to make it even better they are only 8.95 for all 3 sizes! I cut out several butterfly die cuts in three different colors of A|S cardstock, layered them, and added 2 half back pearls to each butterfly. I cut out 4 pieces of the same cardstock adhered the to my card base and machine stitched the seams. To finish off my card I added a sentiment from the A|S sampler sets that you get if you sign up as a consultant and a small trail of pearls.


    To thank you for visiting my blog I am offering some fun blog candy! Three yards each of these colors of A|S satin ribbon, and a catalog. To win my blog candy all you have to do is comment on my blog. If you would like to win my second A|S blog candy then read THIS post.




       This week I am offering a sign up special to anyone that would like to join A Muse|Studio and be a part of my downline, any stamp set 15.99 or less for FREE. You can sign up with A|S for only $99 right now which is a fantastic deal, and now by signing up under me you can get even more stamps. Email me at  alwaysctr at yahoo dot com if you have any questions.   Thankyou for visiting my blog and I hope you come back to see my creations!
              
       Now on to your next stop on the hop Dana Vincent 's  blog. Enjoy the rest of the hop!

      Today I am playing along with the following challenges:
