It's time for a SWALK Bloghop

Well here I am another year older, and possibly wiser, who knows? I have scheduled this post as I won't be allowed near the computer this morning but hope to have a check on what's happening later this afternoon after we have been out somewhere including having a nice lunch.

Welcome to the Crafter’s Companion Blog Hop to celebrate the release of the SWALK Winter Cheer stamp range and papercrafting CD-ROM.
If you have landed here from Marcea 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.

Our DT have had a great time creating with the new ranges from Crafter’s Companion and to celebrate the launch of these stunning new collections on Friday 14th October we have decided to give you a chance to see some Sneak Peeks and also have the chance of winning a fabulous Prize:

All twelve new SWALK stamps and the co-ordinating papercrafting CD-ROM!

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 blog to leave your link on Mr Linky. Along the way you will notice that each Blog will give you a letter - make a note of these as they will make a word which we will ask you for if your number is drawn by Random.Org on the morning of Friday 14th.

My letter is: S

From here, you need to hop to Paula's blog.

PLEASE DO NOT TELL US WHAT THE WORD IS ON THE CRAFTER’S COMPANION NEWS VIEWS AND INSPIRATION BLOG , WE WILL E-MAIL YOU FOR THE ANSWER IF YOUR MR LINKY NUMBER IS DRAWN.

My card today features a Winter version of the iconic SWALK couple. I used paper from the CD and Core'dinations which I embossed with hearts and sanded. The image has been edged with DI Victorian Velvet and coloured with Spectrum Noirs. The heart doily has been chalked and the sentiment is from the stamp set. Snowflakes were punched with an MS punch and Centura pearl card.

Please leave me a comment before continuing the bloghop.
