on the corner of... {neat and tangled blog hop}

I'm thrilled to be joining Neat & Tangled for a fun blog hop, featuring a set designed by my crafting buddy Miriam.  The set is called "on the corner of" and I guarantee you've never seen anything like it before.  I made it christmas-y already (click!) and now I have a few more ideas for you.

(keep reading to the end, where I'll explain how you can win a set for yourself.)

on the corner of...

I was thinking, would I ever give a card to someone that read "you are on the corner of freaking & insane"? maybe not (or maybe yes, to the same person that I am freaking insanely in love with, haha) so I added some handwriting to turn it into a more loving card.

on the corner of...


And then, this card.  A street-sign just begs to be leaned on, doesn't it?  I made the post longer with some creative inking, so that Jake's large head wasn't actually resting on "fantastic."  This card is my big thumbs up (thumbs up? peace sign?) to Miriam.  I know she loves rag dolls, and I always aim to please.  hee.

Now that you've seen my cards, hop on over to the other girls' blogs... and leave comments along the way - there will be 2  "on the corner of" winners chosen from among the comments.

  4. LOVE that soft snowy scene you created on the first card Elena! The sparkly heart is perfect and I love your handwriting. And I think the sign post helps to blunt the rag doll effect. Ha! Seriously these are fantastic! Thank you so much!

  26. I like the snow and the writing to make the card say something a little differently. Your card 2 is so cute with the rag doll...the post does look like it needs to be leaned on. Super job!

    Love these cards Elena!! The colouring on your second one is amazing but it's the first one that captures my heart with that gorgeous softness and freaking insane sentiment!! Our girl Miriam did good didn't she? :-)
