Seasons Givings Blog Hop Year 4

*** This post will remain at the top until the end of the Giveaway
Please Scroll down for recent posts! Thank you! ***

Welcome to the Seasons Giving Blog Hop Year 4 - it is so exciting to have you join us. This Blog Hop is all about you - a way for us Bloggers to say thank you for all of the love and support you send our way, including all of the comments on our Blogs and facebook - it is our turn to give back to you! 


Each Blog will have a giveaway and to enter you need to comment - obviously the more you comment the better chance you have of winning - one or more prizes!!

***My Giveaway***

On my Blog I will be giving away some Spellbinders Dies and Want2Scrap bling,with a few little surprises added along the way!!

***My giveaway will be happening for 7 days - winner announced on 8 January at 10:00pm EST - Australian.  It is for all those playing along on the Seasons Giving Blog Hop and International Visitors are welcome!!  Randon Draw will be used to choose a winner and will be announced back here wth a link to the winners post on fb! ***


I have created a Shabby Chic card to share with you, very simple but very pretty!  I have used the 5x7 Matting Basics A Spellbinders® Nestabilities® Card Creator and Pierced Rectangles.  These have been cut using the Platinum Die Cutting and Embossing Machine


The image is from  Penny Black Inc. and has been coloured using Imagine Crafts ‘featuring’ Tsukineko Memento Markers.  I have used a marker to create faux stitching on the pierced edges My card is held together by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L - my 'go to' adhesive.  The beautiful bling swill is from Want2Scrap.  

Add some recycled lace, a double Seam Binding Bow and a recycled flower to complete the shabby look and one 'not so shabby' card.  I told you it was easy!!

I hope you have enjoyed your visit - you are welcome to follow me on Bloglovin, facebook, Pinterest and Instagram

Here is the complete Blog List - just incase you get lost along the way:

Linda Lucas (you are here)
