And What A Sweet Hop It Is.....


Hello fellow DeNami lovers! Hope you haven’t over loaded on all the sweet eye candy yet, cause you my friend, are just getting started! At least it won’t all go to the hips or in my case, the tushie! ;)

You should have arrived here from my bestie & partner in crime (sometimes I think twin…it’s truly scary how much we are alike lol) Wendy. That was a truly yummy-licious treat wasn’t it? I didn't even have to peek at her card before hand, I know that there will be pink and bling involved! Did you leave her a comment….because DeNami Design is giving away 2 $20 gift certificates to two randomly picked people that have left comments along the hop. So be sure to leave everyone a little love….we bloggers live for your comments and besides, who wouldn’t be head over heels excited about the possibility of winning some awesome DeNami products??? I think if I keep adding to my collection they may need their own zip code! :) But ohh how I puffy heart me some DeNami goodies!

One of my favorite sweet treats...big juicy grapes. There is nothing like biting into a cold crisp juicy grape.  I  even  love to freeze them...it's kinda like candy without all of the guilt! I’ve had the idea for this card in my head ever since this little darling was spotlighted…but  I just never got around to doing it. When Paulina announced this theme I realized that this is my chance to finally bring my little idea to life…no more waiting! I had envisioned leafy vines framing the card with yummy grapes hanging, just waiting to be picked....I combined a couple of sets of stamps with those yummy grapes; leaf accents and my favorite go to set, ornamental flowers. I chalked the whole thing to give it a “soft” look and added a little Viva pearl pen and pop dotted the sentiment panel for dimension. Hope you like it.

Before you run off I have what I think is an AWESOME announcement to make. As most of you know, Wendy and I are partners on the DeNami Addict blog. We truly are addicted…I’m serious when I say my collection may need its own zip code lol! Being the most fantastic company that they are, DeNami Design has offered us the opportunity to host a blog candy give away! Make sure you visit the DeNami Addict blog on Wednesday for details and a chance to win a truly wonderful DeNami prize!!!!

Now off you go to visit with the most uber talented and super de-duper sweet Paulina. I swear I gain weight just talking to that girl! I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us! Be sure to leave those comments for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate and if you get lost, just head back “here” to the DeNami site to get back on track. You have until September 12th @ 11:59pm PST for your comments to be eligiable to win.
