Crafter's Companion Scavenger Hunt Blog Hop

Welcome to the Crafter's Companion Scavenger Hunt Blog Hop!!

I'm so happy you hopped by today!! First I wanted to share a card I made using these cute little owls from the the new Stamp It sets.  I dig their little expressions! I colored them with my Spectrum Noir Markers. I added a little dab of white acrylic paint with a toothpick for a highlight in their little eyes.

I used an embossing folder to give texture to the circle background and for an embellishment.  Here are the Spectrum Noir Markers I used:

Now let's get you started on the Scavenger Hunt! There are lovely 12 design team members and each of us have a question that will give you clues to 12 different items that you can find in the Crafter's Companion Store.

Here's how it works:
  1. Hop around to all of our wonderful design team blogs (see below for where to go next)
  2. Check out our inspirational creations
  3. Follow us while you are there so that you can come back and be inspired more in the future
  4. Find your "clue" questions, and 
  5. Leave us each a comment.   
If you do those few fun things,  you will be entered into the drawing to win the Grand Prize. This GRAND PRIZE includes the complete collection (12 sets) of Peter Rabbit EZ Mount stamp sets!  How fun!

Along the way each designer will have a project to inspire you and also the possibility to win on their individual blogs too!! Each designer is giving away a Cute Companions -Romance stamp set, two embossing powders (one white and one blush rose) and one sheet of EZ mount foam!

This blog hop will run from Friday, April 20th at midnight PST and end at midnight PST on Sunday, April 22nd. Winners will be announced on the Crafter's Companion Informational blog on Tuesday April 24th.
