Final day for hopping inspiration!

Today is Day 5 of the Technique Junkie Blog Hop Extravaganza, and today our featured sponsor is Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps! We have a stamp set giveaway for today from SNS, and, of course, a prize in the grand prize basket, too, so make sure you leave a comment on my blog today to be entered to win both!  Here is the stamp set being given away today:
 
My card today uses the Pleated Front Technique from the 3D and Fun Folds Paper Craft CD. Did I mention that there are 70 tutorials on this CD? And it is only $17.95 for US and Canadian residents (overseas: $19.95). I hope you can see what a bargain it is after 5 days of hopping!

You might be wondering why I used Sweet 'n Sassy's Christmas Joy Stamp set instead of the one being given away today. It's because my mom loved birds - and especially cardinals -- and I use them any chance I can. It makes me feel warm and loved just to color a cardinal! This stamp is especially pretty and beautiful with Copic Coloring.

Don't forget that tomorrow I will post the names of all of the daily winners, plus I will be posting a picture of the Grand Prize. You will have until Monday, December 5 at 9am EST to enter for the grand prize drawing by commenting on any of MY blog posts from Monday through Friday (from the hop).

If you have been following along already you should have come from Chris Dickinson's Blog. If you did not, start at  the Technique Junkie Blog and go from there.  You won't want to miss any stops along the way.Here are all the hoppers today:

 Thanks for stopping by today -- I hope you had fun this week!

Too bad this is the final day! I really enjoyed the hop and all the beautiful projects. Thank you to everyone for showcasing your beautiful projects and talents!

Your cardinal warms my heart too. My Grandmother loved them - (they are rare here in the north, northeast). She was radiant inside and out. Whenever I see one I sense it carries her spirit. This has been a fabulous hop. I've enjoyed every stop along the way and have collected so much inspiration.

I was late for the dailies today. I was under the weather and slept on an off all day, woke up and came straight away to the computer for the hop, but as you can see it is well after midnight est. I hope that perhaps, you all might let my comments in.
just asking.
Thanks for this wonderful hop, and all you do and this great CD!
