International Ambassadors are blog hopping!

Hello friends

 The Spellbinders International Ambassadors are having an informal blog hop again
and this time we are going pastel!
We have been having so much fun with these blog hops and delighted at how many of you
visit, play along and leave such lovely comments.  
I hope you are getting to know us and seeing our different styles,
each one of us is unique in our creative styles - so there is something for everyone!
The idea this month was to create something pastel, I chose a white palette and added
pastel flowers - easy peasy!
My card background is Grate Effect, I placed a section behind a frame
created with 6 x 6 Matting Basics A.
Mini Envelope Three placed at a jaunty angle!
Pretty heart paper inside and a stamped message as a banner.
And my pastel touch is the flowers - Marisa's Bouquet. 

Here is the list of blogs to visit, have fun looking at the all the different projects.
Christine Emberson (You are here)
And this time a special bonus to the hop as there is a chance to win!
Please make sure you are a follower of my blog and leave a comment here - it's that easy!
A winner will be picked out next week and the prize will be
a goody bag of Spellbinders dies!


Remember to check back to see if you have won.
Thanks so much for stopping by - we hope you enjoy your time with us.
We will be back with more!

With best wishes from Christine, Yvonne, Christina and Linda.
