Sentimental Sundays Blog Hop with a giveaway!

We are back at Sentimental Sundays and are ready to start this new year with a big blog party that involves lots of amazing cards and prizes to be won!  You should have arrived here from Rachelle. If you didn't arrive from her blog and would like to join in the hop, please start at the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog.

My card for this week is clean and simple to create, otherwise referred to as CAS.  Need to make a card in a jiffy?  This card has simple cuts, basic supplies, and just 15  minutes of your time.

My card uses the adorable Pink Cat Studio image which I colored with Copics and then cut out.  The new Authentique Free Bird 6x6 series papers are so fun to use with cards since you don't need as much paper to create.  I cut a hounds tooth panel and rounded the two top corners.  Next I cut a strip of the mustard paper  and then paired with another strip in navy which I punched with the scallop border. ***don't have a border punch?  use decorative scissors to create your border***  A piece of grey twine was wrapped around  the navy and a large button was tied on.  Add your colored image with pop dots to the right side and then sentiment.    Done! 
Also, I have a little prize for one lucky commenter.  Just leave me a comment on this post for a chance to win this:
                          I will pick a winner next Sunday and announce here so be sure to check back!

We hope you will join in our “Anything Goes” (plus a sentiment) challenge this week. We have amazing sponsors and to make things a little more exciting, there are hidden prizes being offered by some of our design team members.

So make sure you make sure to visit each stop along the way and enter your comments.

Your next stop on the hop is Archana.  If you should happen to get lost along the way, you can find the blog hop list over at the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog. The hop ends on Saturday, January 7th at midnight EST. The winners will be announced on the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog on Tuesday, January 10th. So, hop on over to the next stop and good luck!

Thank you so much for stopping by.
