Beatrix Potter Sneak Peek and Blog Hop

This is my first sneak peek of the new Beatrix Potter range from Crafter's Companion. There are 3 new CDs and stamp sets, Jeremy Fisher, Benjamin Bunny and Timmy Tiptoes. There is also a range of die cut decoupage, rub ons, card blanks, paper pad, ribbons and gems. As if that wasn't enough there are two fabulous new Core'dination pads as well. 

I decided to make a dinky easel card using Nestie scalloped circle dies and Centura Pearl card. I have used one of the stamps of Timmy Tiptoes, coloured with Spectrum Noirs with glossy accents added to the top of the umbrella. The matching paper is from the CD, sentiment from the stamp set. I've used DI worn lipstick and just added a bow.

Challenges:
For Fun Circles
 So onto the Crafter’s Companion Blog Hop to celebrate the release of the new Beatrix Potter CDs and stamps.

If you have landed here from Louise then you are hopping in the right direction. If not then you need to pop over to the Crafter’s Companion News blog to begin.

The DT have had a great time creating with the new range from Crafter’s Companion and to celebrate the launch of these stunning new collections on Tuesday 20th March as Pick of the Day on Ideal World, Crafter's Companion have decided to give you a chance to see some Sneak Peeks and also have the chance of winning a fabulous Prize:

All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning this great prize is visit each blog in order and then go back to the Crafter’s Companion News Views and Inspiration Blog to leave your link. Along the way you will notice that each Blog will give you a letter - make a note of these as they will make a phrase which we will ask you for if your number is drawn by Random.Org on the morning of Tuesday 20th March.

My letter is: E
From here, you need to hop to Edna's blog.
