FCD Blog Hop PLUS Blog Candy

   The Firecracker Designs by Pamela design team has been challenged to use ‘Distressing or Grunge’ on our cards.  Hmmmmmm- Technique Junkies to the rescue!
   First, Our Blog Hop officially begins Friday AM at 8:00AM, so if you arrive early, all of the links may not be up and running yet. The Hop is ‘circular', so you keep hopping until you get back to where you started.  Pamela picks one mystery hostess, and IF you post a comment on each blog, you will be eligible to win CANDY!

  Pamela always makes all of her images in her sets work together- so my card is from: A little Birdie told me and Scatter Joy.
  I stamped the images and colored them with Copic markers.  The ‘bricks’ are SU markers Going Gray, Basic Gray and Black.  I used Ranger Distress inks Tattered Rose and Fired brick for distressing and flowers.  I used Copic markers R20 and R24 for the flowers and the flower embellishment.  The bird house is E31, E33, E34, E35.
The DSP is Porcelain by Basic Grey- my colors- Love this DSP!!! I distressed the edges of the background cardstock, and around the main image, used a TJ technique called Torn Frames.
  The next stop on our Blog Hop is our May Guest Designer- the very talented Joanne Travis
  The blog hop winner will be announced on Pamela's Blog Monday after 8PM.
I am also offering candy- Pamela has a set 50% off each Wednesday- did you miss the set this past week? It was Oops a Daisy- I like it so much, I bought two!  To win, just post a comment on my blog hop post by Monday at 8PM.  Please leave an e-mail address- or a way for me to contact you! I will even cut it for you if you would like that!
