CHF Summer Fling Blog Hop



Hello, and welcome to the first of the Cornish Heritage Farms Summer Fling blog hops! You should be coming here from Holly's blog and if you haven't started from the beginning you can go back and begin at the CHF Be Creative Blog.

This week we're focusing on the Backgrounder stamps. I made my card with the Circuit Board, which I think is perfect paired with all of the Japanese cute/kawaii products that are popping up everywhere.

Backgrounders are on sale in the store this week (until thursday midnight) for 25% off!


Here is the order of the hop:

Now hop on over and visit Jean.

I love that backrounder - goes so well for 'Robot' cards and with a couple computer type images that I have - great for guy cards...

I keep debating whether to buy that circuit backgrounder, as my honey dabbles with electronics and computers. I think you just convinced me that I can use it for him AND for other people!

Sheila D said...

How right your are about the circuit board backgrounder looking great with all the Japanese cuties out there. Yours is so cute. It'll go great with all the robot stamps out there also.

Joan said...

This sure shows the futuristic idea to a card. Robots in front would make this a great masculine card.
