The Twinery & Ruby Rock-It Blog Hop

Welcome to The Twinery & Ruby Rock-It Blog Hop!
You should have arrived here by way of the wonderful Tifany DeGough!  If not, make sure you start the hop at The Twinery Blog, so you don't miss a beat!

I whipped up a trio of vintage/antique themed cards for today's hop!  I adore the rich and beautiful colors and patterns of the collection from Ruby Rock-It that I had a ball using!

Here are some fabulous goodies that I got to work with on my cards today!

Papers, Stickers & Embellishments


The Twinery will be giving away THREE FULL SPOOLS of twine (winner’s choice!) ($45 retail value).

Ruby Rock-It will be giving away the Essence Empire Bebe collection (Album not included).
Hoppers can visit the Twinery blog and the Ruby Rock-It blog to ​find out how to enter to win.
