Season's Givings...Thank You!

Hello Stamping friends,

Today I'm joining a HUGE group of stampers and businesses in a blog hop to thank YOU, our readers, our supporters and our inspiration...

I want to thank Latisha Yoast for the invite to this fabulous blog hop, and I'm excited to be a part of such a fun blog hop that encourages all of us to give back.

Whether you know me from my non-FSJ blog, Facebook (TheStampingbug's Journey/Kerry Urbatch), Instagram (@stampingbugKerry), Twitter and Periscope (@stampinbugKerry),  Fun Stamper's Journey (Coach 401), The Angel Company or my previous Design Team terms with justJohanna, WoodwareUSA, QueenKat Designs,  or Heartfelt Creations, I appreciate your support and comments throughout the years.

I'm happy to be a part of such a GIVING and supportive community and am thrilled that it is part of my everyday life.  The friendships and connections I've made on this stampy journey keep me motivated, energized and encouraged...and I sooo appreciate every single relationship established through my creative journey.

This blog hop is so special because EVERY SINGLE BLOG that is participating in this hop is contributing a prize to their fellow readers and supporters.  That even includes some of my most favorite stamping/craft companies!

The blog roll is HUGE so I've created a separate blogroll of ALL of the participants on another page. You can view that list by clicking on the blog list HERE.

Alrighty, now on to my share...I created this fun card using some of Fun Stampers Journey Color Splashes on watercolor paper.  I used the Blue Lagoon Color Splash as a wash with my water Blending Brush, then spritzed some of the Shimmer Gold Color Splash over that.
I blasted it with the heat gun to speed up the drying process then flicked some Gold Silk over the dry paper.  After that, I stamped the Rock On image with Black Licorice True Color Fusion Ink and stamped the sentiment onto some graph paper.  I fussy cut the image then popped it up with Foam Squares and attached the sentiment with some staples.  I think that was all the embellishing this card needed...
Look at this yummy splatter.  I just adore the Color Splashes!  I mounted the stamped panel onto Black Licorice cardstock then mounted (with foam squares) onto a Butter Cream card base.  
I'll be giving away a SWEET prize too...All you have to do is comment below to have your name entered into my drawing (sorry, overseas shipping is a killer so I'm limiting it to USA only). Entries will be accepted until January 9 at 12:00 AM EST. On January 10, I will post the winner.  


Wanna know what one winner will receive?
ALL of these items featured in my card above:
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop!  :)
