If so, you are in the right spot. If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

My project for the hop is:

"Feels Good"

This is my favourite stamp set!

 I absolutely love making these cards, I can't resist anything vintage or country!

This card was made with the Stampin' Up! 
Feels Good Stamp set #129684
Gorgeous Grunge stamp set # 130517
Card Stock: Naturals White #129588 
Soft Suede #119982
Sahara Sand #121695
Designer Series Paper: Afternoon Picnic #131390
Ink Pads: Soft Suede #126978
5/8 Crochet Trim #118481

Punch out 3 x 1 1/4 Scallop circles #119854, 
and 1 x scallop from the Itty Bitty Punch pack #118309, sponge edges on all scallops. Secure together with a brad, this will make 1 medium flower.

 Then punch out 3 x 7/8 Scallop circles #129404 and 1 x scallop from the Itty Bitty Punch pack #118309. Sponge edges of all scallops, secure together with a brad. 

Crumple the centre scallops, then with scissors make cuts all the way around to centre to get a featuring look. Ruffle edges a little to lift layers.

Tear a big enough piece of card stock to stamp your image on and sponge around the edge. Stamp your sentiment in the middle then stamp around the outside of piece with the small dots of your Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. 
Crumple the torn piece to give it a worn look then straighten a little. Place dimensional's under areas you want raised to stand out on the card.

Arrange your card as you wish or as pictured.

I'm giving away one kit to make card in the photo above!
