The Winner will be announced on the Stamp Insanity blog...so be sure to check back to see if you're a winner! For the prize, TWO lucky winner will receive one digi of their choice....Now isn't that just groovy?!! So please be sure you leave a comment on EVERY blog hop stop along the way and finish to the end for your chance to win! I’m the first stop on the hop. :) Here’s the card I made.





I made this card for my friend Laura. She is always lending me her books (mostly Dark Hunters…yum!), so I wanted to just give her a little token of my appreciation. I had never used this version of Morgan, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to give her a go.





I colored Morgan in with my colored pencils and I cut out some text that I got in a parcel from The Scrap Factory. I tried out a few different patterned papers, but nothing was working. So I decided to use Glimmer Screens and chalk to make my own background. Then I added a quote, also from StampInsanity, of course.





So there you have it! A cute card, with a cool background that’s easy to create! Want some more inspiration??? Then please visit the rest of the Groovy Gurlz! Next on the hop is my awesome friend Erica, but below is the entire hop list.
