It's Ketto Blog Hop Day!!!

Welcome to the first Ketto Blog Hop sponsored by Stamping Bella! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Bloggabella.

I just bought these quickutz swirls and I'm still trying to figure out the best way to use them. I'm also trying to try out different color combinations, mixing DPs, etc. If you know me, you know I tend to play it safe with colors and gravitate to paper packs or double sided paper that I know match. I don't think I really have that eye for color combos like some fabulous card designers! I am happy with the result though. I love my kettos, so cute and whimsical. They fit my style so much. The cutie on my card is maisy KETTO.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Anita's Blog to see her fun Ketto Project. Have a great day!
This just in: How about a prize? In addition to the fabulous eye candy, Stamping Bella decided to hide a prize somewhere along the hop! One pre-selected blogger will draw a random winner from the comments on her post, and the winner will receive a $40 Gift Voucher to Stamping Bella!!! The fun part is...we don't know who that is! So as you hop, make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!! The winner will be announced on Monday. MWAH!
