Okay - Everyone Get in a Circle...

Are you holding hands with the person next to you? Quit wiggling. Shh. Good. Okay - Well first of all, if you must know, I am the spotlight artist for Firecracker Designs by Pamela this month!! It's TRUE! I would never lie about such a thing! I'm really excited - I love Pamela's designs, and honored to be featured with such a talented group of designers!

And lucky for me, there's a blog hop today, and you people know how much I LOVE blog hops. You will get to find some new artists you may not have seen before and maybe learn some new stuff! I can't wait to see what everyone does!

You're holding hands because this is a circular blog hop, so no matter where you start on the hop, you can go all the way around the circle and see it all. The theme for the hop is Greetings & Salutations. So I would like to greet you WITH A SASSY AND BRIGHT CHICKEN! He's from the Just Chicken up on You set, and I colored him with Copics. Notice that he is carrying a little chicken home remedy in case there's something wrong with you, like the swine flu. Ooh - I hope you don't have the swine flu, since you are all holding hands. I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR A BLOG HOP SWINE FLU OUTBREAK!

Anyway, after coloring, I paper pieced him onto some Stampin' Up! Night & Day DSP, and stuck him on a Tempting Turquoise base. The greeting is stamped in Tempting Turquoise, and I outlined "Chicken" in Green Galore to make it stand out a bit.

Now, as is customary - there are FREE GOODIES to be won on the hop - LOOKIE!Because she's cool like that, Pamela will choose the winner from a mystery hostess on the hop! None of us know who it is! So leave a comment on every post in the hop, and maybe it will be you. The winner will be contacted by email, so be sure and leave that in your comment as well.

The official kickoff is Friday at 8 AM Eastern, so if you're here early, the links may not all be live, so stop back by! :)

Ready for more? Your next stop on the hop is Donna's beautiful blog.

Thanks so much for chicken in!!! :)

  3. O I keep forgetting to right and ask you where you get your copics. I checked at two of my local chain art supply stores and neither carried them, any suggestions where to check?

  14. Lydia, thanks for "Chicken in" on me! It's been 22 hours (not that I'm counting) since I left my DD at her new dorm in Philly and near here in College Park, MD they are having a huge outbreak of swine flu. I may need to make a card like this as a preventative and mail it off to her. - Theresa aka 21stamper at gmail dot com
