Welcome to the International Crafter's Companion Blog Hop!!
I'm so happy you could hop along today!!  The Crafter's Companion U.S. and U.K. teams have gotten together to celebrate the launch of the gorgeous new Angelica and Friends collection of stamps with an international blog hop!!  
Welcome to Angelica's world!!  Crafter's Companion is launching a fabulous new paper crafting range featuring Angelica and her pals! This super-cute Angelica & Friends collection consists of a paper crafting CD-ROM, 9 co-ordinating stamp sets and three paper crafting collections. (available in the UK only)  This is such a  sweet and playful set of stamps you are sure to want each and everyone of them!
If you came here from Caroline's blog then you are in the right place.  If not, you might want to start at the beginning on Ali's blog.  That way you won't miss any along the way.  This blog hop starts today, Monday February 4, 2013 and participants have until Wed, Feb 6, 2013 at 9:00 PM PST to enter.  The U.S. winner will be announced on The Crafter's Companion USA blog on Thursday, February 7, 2013.
And guess what that winner will be getting?  The prize is 4 EZ Mount stamp sets of our choice from this fabulous new collection!  This is a prize worth $40!  The prize will be awarded to ONE lucky winner, drawn at random from a random commenter on a US team members blog  The prize for the folks in the United States is open to US residents only. 
Look at what you could win!!
So of course I was very excited to get to play with this new collection of stamps and have been coloring like crazy! Here is a Set of Drawers card that I made to share with you here today. 

I immediately grabbed the Angelica stamp set to color first.  I stamped the image out onto some Ultra Smooth Premium White Card stock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  I colored this little sweetie with my Spectrum Noir markers.  She was a delight to color!  Here are the Spectrum Noir markers I used.


After coloring her, I pulled out my copy of The Ultimate Advanced Construction Techniques DVD and let Sara walk me step by step through the fun and easy to follow directions on making this card.  It might look complicated but it is really very easy to make. If you don't already have this DVD you need to get it!  It is loaded with step by step instructions for several awesome projects.

I really tried to make this card extra special because my daughter has her birthday this week and I am going to give it to her.  The little drawers are just the perfect size for a gift card, candies or other little goodies.  I think she will be very excited to get it.
