bon jour, EAD blog hop!

one of the many cool perks about being guest designer* at EAD DESIGNS this month, is that it makes me pretty excited about mondays, since that's the day of our bog hop! so let's get right to it: if you're "hopping" in order you should have arrived from shellye's blog, the papered cottage; but if you've got lost, jump on back to the EAD blog... because, remember, there's free vinyl for one random commenter!!!


the very first sheet of stickerz i chose for my GDT gig was this PARIS LOVE set and it was 100% because jessica, amy, and lauren brewer used it to make such totally adorable cards for the january color challenge!


for me, the only problem with such gloriously specific inspiration is avoiding the temptation to just make EXACTLY the same cards as those i admire! i genuinely didn't realize i had "copied" the little paris flag from amy's card until i went and grabbed the links for this post, lol! :) but hey, it was a BRILLIANT idea and i've done it "my way" so i'm cool with that, and i hope amy is, also!


(paris love stickerz by EAD DESIGNS; vintage: paris travel book page, layered under the stickerz before cutting out AND vintage map of paris, copied and re-sized to fit my card; patterned paper: kaiser, glitz; bling: recollections; ribbon: heidi swapp; stick pin: joann essentials; glossy white cardstock: ranger; inks: colorbox;  outlining pen: copic)

i'm pleased with how this came out, c'est tres jolie, non?! :) now i really cannot wait to see what the rest of the gang has got for us this week, but before we go, lemme just remind you about EAD's shipping policy:


yep, you read that right: *FREE* shipping on all stickerz and rub-ons every single day! how cool is THAT?! now off you go to amy's blog, tsuruta designs and check out her gorgeous creation! ♥♥♥

*an honor i achieved by winning the random draw for EAD designs' january's color challenge; if you'd like to be in with a shot as march's GDT-- and scoop a $20 EAD gift card, to boot!-- be sure to enter amy's awesome B&W color challenge (#21) before february 23rd! oh and did i mention that everyone who plays automatically gets 25% off in the EAD store?! you might want to enter that challenge... i'm just sayin'... :) :) :)
