ScrapFIT Color Inspiration Blog Hop AND giveaway!!!


Welcome to the ScrapFIT Color Inspiration Blog Hop and workout!

(And also a cool giveaway!!!)
You should have arrived here from Missy’s blog.  If you’ve gotten lost somewhere along the way, begin HERE at the ScrapFIT blog.  

We hope you’re enjoying visiting the FITGirls’ blogs and seeing all of the beautiful fall-colored cards.  Here is my take on Diana's gorgeous color challenge.  Here's my "peek" that you probably saw on ScrapFIT:

And here is the "big picture" of my card:

I loved using some of the little wooden shapes from Close to My Heart to make the "leaves" and the "trunk" of the tree.  And I loved using some of my favorite scraps from Sassafras Lass and The Girls' Paperie.
I used some stiffened burlap scraps to die cut my clouds out of, and then I stitched them on.
You know, 
thank you cards are the one kind of card I  always seem to make and need.   My life is filled with generous people who love to give to me---whether it is time, a shoulder, or an actual "thing", and I like to say thanks with a handmade card.  In the interest of saying "Thanks", I'd like to offer up some prizes for being part of the hop...I will be offering a prize for new followers, and one for current followers as well!  If you become a new follower of Part-Time Pretties (and tell me you are a new follower in the comments), I will enter your name for a prize!  If you are already a follower, leave me a comment and I will enter you for a separate prize drawing. Whether you are "new" or "old", if you share my giveaway on your blog, leave me another comment saying so, and you will earn an extra chance in the drawing.  In my wildest dreams, I'd love to get to 100 followers!  This drawing is open to local and international followers!


As for prizes from me, I have put together some "mini-kits" from my own stash.  Each will be valued at approximately $15.  Each will include paper and other goodies.  And maybe even an authentic part-time pretty flower made by me!!!  I'm not gonna show pictures, but I think you will like what I've put together!
 

OK, now on to the HOP.  The word you are here to collect from me is PICTURE

Remember,in order to be eligible for the prize, you need to collect the special word from every blog, leave a comment on each one, and then send the unscrambled sentence to Missy.  Her email email is missy@whiddendesign.com

What is the prize for hopping along with us?  One lucky girl will win a $20 gift certificate to the Paper Issues store! 
You can hop until Monday, November 19th at 8pm. 

And don't forget, you can participate in this workout as well as hopping!  Submit your card over at ScrapFIT to have a chance to win this month's Lo-Cal Kit, below:
From here, you need to head over to our Creative Trainer Diana's blog, here, to get your next word!
Good luck, and enjoy!
