DieZyne Blog Hop at the C.C.Designs

Hello dear readers!


It's finally here!  The second release from By DIEzyne Dies.  We are celebrating this weekend on Passionate Paper Creations and Friends Facebook Group and C.C. Designs Facebook Group.
We are kicking everything off with a really big blog hop!
We have the C.C. Designs DT here today to share their creativity with the new By DIEzyne Dies.
You can find By DIEzyne Dies by clicking HERE

For my hop card I used a stamp by Pollycraft, "Spot" and of course several dies from the DieZyne line - Stitched and Pierced Rounded Brackets and Stitched Flags Two.


I like the stitching on the edges of the die cuts and their size is optimal for placing a colored image inside.

Here are some of the close-ups:

        


I also used a couple of dies from the C.C.Designs, and the sentiment is from the wonderful stamps set by Amy R. (the links are at the bottom):



What is a blog hop without prizes?!?!
Of course we have prizes.  We are going to play a game.
WORD SCRAMBLE
Here is how you play:
1.  Visit each blog along the way.
