Stamper's Dream Blog Hop!

Hi there! Thanks for joining us for the Stamper's Dream blog hop! The Dream Team is hopping today, along with some very special friends of mine. We also have some hidden blog candy for you! But we will get to all that in a moment. First, let me tell you about my card.
All stamps used are from the new Stampendous Daisy Thanks clear stamp set. I watercolored the image with Tombow Markers and used a damp paint brush to blend. I stamped the flowers a second time, colored them and popped them up with foam tape for added dimension.

I distressed the edges of the paper with my Tim Holtz Paper Distresser and Distress Inks . The designer paper is from the October Afternoon Seaside paper pad. The cardstock is from the Prism Papers Sunflowers Trio .

Since I've been getting emails about which Tombow Markers I use on my projects, I photographed them for you.

The list of ladies below are all very special to me...and they have made something awesome for the hop today! My heartfelt thanks to each of them...they truly are the sweetest! Please be sure to comment at each of their blog posts for your chance at TWO different dreamy treats (pictured below). Here is the lineup:

Michelle (You are HERE )
Becca
Jerri Kay
Amy
Tosh
Mariana
Cindy
Leslie
Kim
Teresa
Lea
Christina

Since I couldn't get all this loot in my photo tent for one picture, I divided it up into two groups, so there will be a chance for you to win one of these two prizes. All you have to do is comment on the blog with the hidden blog candy. And since you don't know which two designers have it...you'd be better off to comment on them all! Why take a chance? :)

Dreamy Treat #1

Dreamy Treat #2

I will announce the winners Sunday night here on my blog. Good luck to you all...and thanks so much for stopping by!
