Denami Design's Back to School Blog Hop

Good Morning Everyone!

Welcome to Denami Design's Back to School Blog Hop.  Here are the details.

When: The blog hop starts on September 9th at 6 AM, PST. However, you have until September 10, 2012, 11:59 pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for a prize).

Why: To be inspired by fun DeNami Design creations and also the chance to win mini shopping sprees on the DeNami Design website!

Prizes: We are giving away THREE $20 gift certificates to our website! We'll be giving away one gift certificate to a random participant (DT members not eligible) and then we'll also be giving away TWO gift certificates to TWO people who comment along the hop!
If you started at the beginning of the hop you have arrived here from Barb Murphy's ALWAYS so inspiring blog.  I am happy to say that Barbara and I have become Internet friends and she is so much fun to "talk" with.  I love to study her cards and watch her videos on youtube.
I decided that an easel card would fit in perfectly with a "Back to School" theme so that's what I made for today's hop.  If you like easel cards, but aren't sure how to make them you can find instructions and videos on Split Coast Stampers. 
As you will see in the photograph below I stamped a Denami Design sheep onto a piece of chalkboard tag and embossed it with white embossing powder to make it stand out.  I used a white colored pencil to write on the board.  My chalk is a piece of a Q-tip.  I wanted my Denami Design Chickie Teacher to stand out so I stamped her on white tag, colored her in with markers and then used an oval punch to cut her out.  I created the sentiment on my computer.

Next you will be heading to Tenia Nelson's AWESOME blog.  I am a huge fan of Tenia's creations and I know she'll have something fun to share with us.  Before you leave my blog please stop and leave a comment so that you might win a prize from Denami Design.  Hope you'll also become a follower of my blog.
Have a great day!
Carol
