  1. Hiya Kristy! I’m loving the new images! These mushies are so cute and can totally pull off a card on their own! Very cool! I love the sentiment too!
    My favourite thing this blog hop is the adorable wee bird, and of course your fabulous designers all made wonderful cards!


  2. In love with those little mushrooms! I love the way you made the card, simple, and put focus on them! My fav thing throughout this awesome blog hop was seeing all of the great work by all of you ladies!! Gives me inspiration for my crafty day ahead!

  3. My goodness your coloring is great! I can actually see where the mushroom caves in and gives a little cute shape! My favorite thing by far is all the animals, no one can ever have too many or see too many. And of course my favorite of the animals is the bird!….or the bunny….snail? I like em all!

  4. Love your CAS card! Those mushrooms are too stinkin cute!

    My favorite thing during the hop…… I really love the little critters, the snail is sooooo cute and the little turtle too!! I totally loved the way Melissa used them on her card!

  5. OH MY SHROOMIE!! he he – love this girl it’s totally adorbs – I mean chevron and shrooms – how could you go wrong?

  6. Love your card – those mushrooms are adorable and probably my favourite image of all, although all the little critters are sooo cute.

  7. Those cute little mushrooms have grown in my heart too! Love the release Kristy. You did a fantastic job! I love it all, so colorful and happy. Can’t wait to color and create something with these cute new stamps. Happy spring to you!

  8. Fungi friends! I must have them! 🙂

    I have loved everything in this hop. Everything! I love how each little creature/image can be darling on it’s own (i.e. fungi friends) or grouped together to make an adorable scene. You did a GREAT job creating more awesomeness…. congrats! And, thanks for sharing your talent with the rest of us!


  9. what’s your favorite thing you’ve seen thru out the whole hop?
    Gwen in the strapless dress and Really sexy boots..
    Makes me go back to great memories lol.
    Love all the designs and you all were so sweet and DT did a great job.
    how impressed are we….


  10. The most favorite thing that I saw along the hop was the stair step card on Melissa’s blog. Her coloring was amazing and the papers she chose to use made the card truly POP and say SPRING!!!

  11. That is one adorable simpel card. It´s perfect the way it is 😉
    The Blog Hop was fun and ladies creation were stunning. But most of all I liked Melissa´s card. It made me say wow. And I love Gwen in Bloom stamp. It´s my one favourite now.

  12. Love your card. I so struggle with CAS cards. My favorite thing about the blog is seeing how your designers incorporated the animals for each stamp set, not just the fabulous main characters, so you can envision. Ways to,and the cards with the all or some of the stamps included!

  13. I love Gwen in Bloom. Looking at Melissa’s card, I can’t wait to see the rest of the images that comes with her! Thanks for the chance!

  14. Adorable CAS card with the mushrooms, totally adorable!

    Oh gosh just one favorite thing from the hop? well I loved the toadstool/mushrooms on Leah’s creation, and I adored Faye’s Kaylee card! The bird and bee was adorable from Iwona and Orange Leah’s vintage colouring was just gorgeous! As well as Annette’s awesome Collage card, but I think for sure as others above said Melissa’s step card really was the one I kept staring at, finding more and more details as I looked, just stunning, but it was a hard decision as all the creations were amazing!

  15. Just perfect CAS Kristy!
    Love your colouring, always perfect. Your shadowing of the image is fantastic!!
    I have enjoyed every step of the hop, the designers work is fantastic and the images are beautiful. My favorite is Gwen in bloom, simply adorable with the tulip and the cool boots!
    Thanks for the inspiration Kristy
    Have a nice weekend
    Hugs, Jill

  16. Adorable card!! I LOVE mushrooms and these guys are so stinking cute! I would have to say my favorite thing so far in the hop is Melissa’s card. I love how bright and colorful it is and the actual design with the layers is amazing.

  17. Wow I love the CAS design with the mushrooms poppin’ off. My favourite thing through the whole hop has got to be Melissa’s card. I really loved all the bright colouring and those different elements she used for her card. Bettina xx

  19. A brilliant simple effective card – love it Kristy! My favourite thing about the hop is seeing how versatile the images are – the little scenes are so fabulous!!

  20. Wow!! Love your CAS card, very well balanced!!!

    My fav is Melissas card! So happy and colorfull and all those cute little images! LIke a candybuffet!!

  21. What an absolutely sweet card! This was a fun hop! My favorite thing I’ve seen? Oh geez, so much wonderful eye candy! I guess my favorite would have to be seeing how the different stamps (sets) were combined and how all of the designers can do such different yet equally amazing things with them! 🙂

  22. cute mushroom. Congrats on the new stamp release.I love the way the images seem stepping forward – foreshortened with the boots and legs coming right at you.
    And my fav in this blog hop is Melissa’s colors They are so so bright and eyecatching

  26. The mushrooms are adorable. Beautiful card! I love seeing all the amazing inspiration from the hop.

  28. The little faces are just adorable, such a sweet card! I just love all of them but I really love Gwen in bloom, she is so pretty and I have to tell you I just want to squeeze the adorableness out of all those sweet animals 🙂

  29. Great Card, Kristy! Love the chevron background with those awesome mushrooms. My favorite part of this hop was seeing how differently the critters and girls could be used.

  30. I have loved the hop, and your adorable CAS Mushy card…
    My favourite thing about the hop, and something that I know I notice a lot, is seeing everyones colouring styles… I am only really starting to develop my own skills, so seeing everyone elses skills is intimidating, but at the same time so freaking inspirational!

  31. Oh my gosh! I love your new blog layout! SOOO awesome!!! Loves it!
    I love your card as well! The simplicity you bring with each card is just phenomenal! The funkiness and the colors are just fab! Love seeing your work!!
    This hop has been amazing! I love seeing all the different ways the stamps can be used! But man, those lil mushrooms are killing me with cuteness!!!

  32. Absolutely gorgeous stuff through the hop. I have to say that Melissa’s amazing card was my favorite thing to see!! Her amazing coloring skills and the 3D effect, just fabulous!!!

  33. The hop has been AHmazing! I have loved seeing the little bird here and there on the hop but overall Melissa’s card has me totally captivated. I have to keep going back and looking at it over and over and each time I discover some new detail I missed.
    Thanks for the hop and inspiration

  34. Wow for a little pair of mushies they sure pack a punch………
    what i like best definately the wonderful bright colors on Melissa’s card and the oppurtunity to WIN such super cool stamps

  35. Those mushrooms are cute! I love their little mouths.

    All the projects on the hop were gorgeous .. but the thing I loved/noticed the most was the vibrancy of the images. The way they were all coloured was gorgeous. The all looked so saturated with gorgeous colour. You can tell these girls love to colour SOG images!

  36. Wow Kristy this is awesome!! I am really loving these mushies hehe 🙂 You know my favourite things would probably have to be all of the cute animals – loving the snails, turtles and all of the little critters!!

  37. Tammy…i have the same thoughts. Its raining here in OC so all I can think is Gwen and her boot. hehe

    Great Job to SOG’s Design Team and I am extremely proud to be offering your product on our website. GO SOG!

  40. Such a sweet simple card… sometimes I get carried away adding flowers and bling, but a simple card is just as beautiful!

    My favorite part of this hop is obviously the prizes up for grabs, but aside from that I really LOVED Leah’s card (the one at the end of the hop). I loved the coloring (how everything was muted and just a hint of color on the clothes. I love that image too!!

    Thanks for a chance to win.

  46. OK, I know you probably want me to tell you which image I liked best, but I can’t.

  55. those little mushrooms are super cute!! Wow…you’re seriously going to make me pick a favorite thing out of all that goodness?!?! I just adored Melissa’s card with the happy colors and wonderful scenery, it totally made me smile. Iwona’s card with the vibrant colors and perfect layout made me just want to run to my craft room and start creating. Leah’s coloring made me want to break out my Copics and practice shading with muted tones and softer palettes. All of the cards were amazing and beautiful! But to be completely honest, my favorite thing of all was seeing your blog banner!! I usually read the blog in my reader, so it’s new to me, and I am totally in LOVE with it!! Thanks for an awesome blog hop – had a great time!

  57. Oh Kristy, I love this card! I so don’t do CAS cards, but I wish I could I keep looking at them and thinking they need something and then just keep adding and before you now they are no longer CAS…hehe!

    The best thing about the hop was seeing everyones gorgeous creations, but my fav thing would have to be melissa’s card with all the folds and those gorgeous critters, loved it! Thanks so much for a Wonderful blog hop!
