Welcome to the Technique By Design Blog Hop!

Hi! Judy Jackson here!  Welcome to the Technique by Design Blog Hop for the October-November Technique Junkie Newsletter! There are wonderful projects for you to enjoy and to inspire you on this blog hop.

I chose this gorgeous single rose from Class Act stamps to feature as the focal image. I water colored the rose and added a few highlights with a red marker. My word stamp in the lower panel is from a stamp set called Our Family Tree by Mark's Finest Papers. The metal embellishment uses a technique called Smooched Metal from the October TJ Newsletter.

The design and measurements for this Technique by Design sketch are located on page 6 in the TJ Newsletter.

Make sure you hop through the rest of the Design Team member's blogs (a list is below). Lots of eye candy for you there! Then create a card using the design sketch and follow Pat Huntoon's directions for entering the contest. You will need to send her a scan or photo of your  card using the Technique by Design challenge or share it with the TJ Yahoo group. The prize is terrific!

Because October is the eighth anniversary of the Technique Junkie Newsletter, the prize is extra special: one lucky winner will be TJ Subscriber for Life: all back issues/cds to fill in the collection of whoever wins PLUS all of the projects, issues and CDs for as long as the newsletter is published. Make sure to check out the official rules on Pat's Blog.

Enjoy your week - I hope you find some time to create. - Judy Jackson
