Blog Hop with The Character Cafe

Hello all and welcome to the monthly Character Cafe New Release Blog Hop. If you came from Angie's Blog, then you are in the right place. If not, then start at the beginning so you don't miss out on any of the fun!

This hop, I am featuring The Dock. This was originally released with a dad and son, so a few of us reminded the artists that some girls fish and some dads only have girls...so K&K were kind enough to oblige us with a dad and daughter. Soooo sweet.


A week ago I got mail with the coolest envelope. I couldn't throw it away. Good thing, because I think it's perfect for this card. Yup, the stamp and sentiment are printed on an "upcycled" envelope. I also crumbled it up and inked with Ranger's Tea Dye.
