Creative Charms "Fair Well" Blog Hop and Some Blog Candy!

Looking for the INKY ANTICS blog hop? Scroll down 1 post. ;)
But....
BLOG CANDY ALERT! Read this post too! :)


Hi Everyone!
The new Creative Charms design team is about ready to take the reigns so Midori decided we would do a "Fair well" hop for those of us who are leaving. I have really enjoyed my two terms with Creative Charms
I have had a blast playing with all of that beautiful bling and meeting some amazing artists!
Today's hop is a scavenger hunt of sorts. Each designer will have a "secret word" that will end up being a phrase that you will email Midori, for a chance to win some awesome prizes! It is sure to be a lot of fun!

You should have arrived to my blog from beautiful Jennifer's blog. If you just happened onto mine, you will want to start back at the Creative Charms blog so you can start your phrase from the beginning! :)

Today, I thought I would share a couple of my favorite projects that I have done with Creative Charms products.

This card is both shabby and blingy because it was done with trash! The "designer" paper, flowers and leaves are all made out of old newspaper and Glimmer Mist! The beautiful White Vintage Brad and White Gradient Pearl Stickers add a touch of class to it! ;)
I just have to mention that beautiful Mossy Rock Hand-dyed ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon too! ;)


Another of my favorite Creative Charms projects is this little tote treat bag that I use one of the "Deal of the Month" kits to decorate. These kits are a great way to add lots of bling to your stash without loosing lots of cha-ching from your cash! :)


I have tons more projects that I've made with Creative Charms so after you finish the hop, come on back and take a peek around my blog. :)

Blog Candy Alert!!!!
I am giving away this eclectic collection of fun Creative Charms embellishments.! There are 50 pieces ranging from 1/4" to 3". Some of them are no longer available so you can only get them here! All you have to do is leave a comment and become a follower if you aren't already. My winner will be chosen and announced on Monday May 22nd as will the winners from the Creative Charms blog hop.


OK...my secret word for the phrase is.....HOP
Your next stop is the super talented Ellen's blog.
But wait....don't forget to comment and "Follow" to have a chance at my bling give away!

Thanks so much for hopping by!

Hugs,
True :D
