CHF Blog Hop - Friendly Kritters week

Welcome to your last stop on the CHF Friendly Kritters blog hop! Did you enjoy all the great artwork today? If you came here from Kristine's blog, you are on the right track. If you just popped in and you're wondering what I'm talking about, please start at the Be Creative blog so you don't miss any of the great artwork on this fun blog hop.

We are showcasing the Friendly Kritters line at Cornish Heritage Farms this week. All of the Friendly Kritters stamps are on sale this week, but the sale ends on Thursday, so now is the time to grab those stamps you've had on your wish list.

I loved this cute mouse in the strawberry field, so I decided to showcase him here on my blog today. This is the Strawberry Mouse stamp, and I inked it up with gray ink before coloring it with Copic markers. I wanted the mouse's eye and nose to be darker, so I went over those with a black Sharpie marker. Just remember to use your Sharpie markers AFTER you color with Copics. If you do it vice versa, you will have an ugly mess. :-)




Two Gift Certificates will be awarded to 2 lucky winners who successfully follow the blog hop & comment as they go in the time allotted. This is not a race. All Blog Hops will start from the CHF Be Creative Blog on a Monday, comments must be made before midnight EST on the Thursday of that week & winners will be announced on the Friday.

1st prize is a $20 CHF Gift Certificate, 2nd Prize is a $10 Gift Certificate which will be emailed to the winning participants. The Gift Certificates will be valid for 6 months from date of issue. PLEASE NOTE that if you have a Club CHF award awaiting you on your next order, you will need to wait for the following order to use your Gift Certificate as the store only allows one discount per order.

If you upload a qualifying card (using the featured week’s stamp line) to the CHF special gallery for that week you will be eligible for the Design Team’s Favorite prize which will be a rubber stamp/stamp set of your choice up to the value of $16.99. The deadline for uploading cards for the prize will also be Thursdays at midnight.



Don't forget to leave comments at each stop on this hop for a chance to win a gift certificate! If you upload your artwork to the special gallery HERE, you could win a free backgrounder stamp!

This is your last stop on today's hop, but there is more eye candy over in the special Summer Fling Friendly Kritters gallery. Head on over there for more inspiration and ideas for your Friendly Kritters stamps. Remember, all the Friendly Kritters stamps are on sale this week, so don't miss out on the savings!

Cute card -- love the layout and the colors you've chosen. And thanks for the tip about the Sharpie and the Copics -- I didn't know that and probably WOULD have made a huge mess!

I love the way you framed this card...like a piece of art that could hang from the wall. And the two ribbons on the right set things off perfectly.

Beautiful card -- I have enjoyed all of the cards on this blog hop and wish I had the talent and patience to do justice to colouring these images.

Such a cute card! Great tip about the Sharpie pen on his eye etc. - I don't have any Copics yet but that is a good tip for other markers probably. Great colors - the yellow just pops! Too cute! I don't have any of these critters but maybe I will have to splurge since they are on sale - but how to choose? Thanks for sharing!
