#spreadjoynotgerms Official Blog Hop!

Heyya Craftyyy Friendsss!! 

This is an exciting time for the Crafters around the world as we are having this AMAZING #spreadjoynotgerms Blog Hop organized by Catherine Pooler and Alexendra Stapleton-Smithfrom the Hedgehog Hollow blog! :)



This is a BIG HOP! We have 31 sponsors and 153 bloggers participating! :)

I made this card for the hop!


I have used CUTplorations - Stitched Winter Landscape from the STAMPlorations store for this CAS card. Isn't this die absolutely beautiful? I have used various Distress inks on the panel and smooshed it over. Ran this on the Sizzix Sidekick and adhered it over the white card stock. The sentiment is hand-written using Tombow fudenosuke Soft tip. Yeah! That's the new skill i have taken up..u can find me on
Instagram by the name @suchi_art_craft for more details! :)

I had this idea in mind that most of us are home- quarantined. What better way than to be thankful our home sweet home to spread the joy. At least we have a roof on our heads! 
I am sure crafting for most of us is the best way to use this time to its fullest! I hope this card brings SMILE on your face and inspired you to create cards for your dear ones! :)
