The winner will receive a stamp set and ink pad of their choice!!
The Blog Hop will end Sunday, April 30th at 7:00pm Eastern. 
We will then post a winner!!

I created a FuN canvas today using the Vines of Love Stamps and coordinating Vines of Love Chipboard.  

I painted on the base with Mowed Lawn and Salty Ocean distress paints.  I added the lines at the bottom with some distress ink and edged the whole canvas with Walnut Stain.  The butterflies are created by using an UmWow Studio stencil and some moulding paste.  The flower was colored with Copic Markers and I added some Distress Glitter to the flower for emphasis.  Here's a close-up:

I covered the whole flower with Glossy Accents and added the sentiment with D2BA Chocolate Chip Ink.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Your next stop in the hop is our fabulous Artzy Guest Designer, Vicki's blog!   (Did anyone notice that I am "surrounded" by wonder women named Vicki??!)

We hope you are inspired all along the way!
