Welcome to the Fiskateers Orange Blog Hop! If you have come from Diane's Blog ,you are in the right place. This is a stop on the Orange Blog Hop where members of Fiskateers, a community sponsored by Fiskars, are sharing their passion for crafting. If you didn't, you may want to hop back to the Fiskateer Blog and start at the beginning.The blog hop starts on Saturday, October 1st and ends on Sunday, October 2nd,2011. Each blog on the hop will be doing an orange project using a Fiskars tool and some will be giving away blog candy! My giveaway is at the end of this post. Keep reading for details.

I made a very fiskateer-y card. Using the Fiskars Texture plates, I made the background for the card. I thank Cheryl(Lead) for sharing the awesome orange/green ribbon! Looks like it was made just for the orange blog hop!




Here is the prize I will be giving away. It is one of my favorite tools! The fingertip control swivel knife :).


One winner will be picked at random. Leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway. You can become a follower if you would like, but its not a must to be elgible to win the candy! Winner will be announced on Monday, October 3rd by 9:00pm CST. Next on the hop is Cindy be sure to stop by and visit.

great card...how could it not be? IT's Fiskateer colors!!! You don't need to enter me for your prize...thanks for sharing the cute ideas. I like your big shot dust cover too!

Lesa said...

Beautiful card! Very Fiska-cheery!

Laney said...

Great card! I also love your dust covers for your machines. I really need to make some for my sewing machine, serger and cricut. You have inspired me with your pretty covers.

Sue in CT said...

Great card....in the Fiska line. I love your dust cover too. I should think about one of them as I am forever sanding paper and all the dust gets everywhere.
I had my eye on the swivel knife but I only could get one thing and opted for the mico tip scissors so the knife is still on my "wanted" list. Thanks for a chance to win them.

Your card is great, Viji! I would have known just by seeing it that I was on the right path for the hop - it shouts "Fiskateer!"

I am a follower already because I love seeing your work. Now, I just need to sign on and look at the blogs I follow every now and then! Please don't enter me in your drawing, I have one of these craft knives and just love it! It took awhile for me to get the hang of using it and my other finger tip craft knife, but once I did, they became some of my favorite tools!

Connie said...
