Top Secret Detective Blog Hop

Welcome to the Top Secret Detective Blog Hop hosted by Jaded Blossom and SVG Cutting Files!

  So glad you joined me for this super fun hop, there will be prizes and fun all around, just follow the clues!

For my project today I made a card and a treat container.  Annie at SVG Cutting Files made me this fun cut file, it is Basil of Baker Street from the Great Mouse Detective.  He is one of the free files you will get today.   Make sure to scroll all the way down to get my secret word and the link to the free file.

 I stamped some of the Detective Candies around him for the background, I inked them up with markers so as not to get the circle around the image. 



For the magnifying glass I just used punches and then stamped the thumbprint in the center.  For the pillow box I just wrapped the papers around it and glued them down and added the twine and magnifying glass. 





So what is a blog hop without a prize?  Not as fun for sure!  This is what I will be giving away today to some lucky winner! This is a brand new package of AC Spring card stock (60 sheets 8.5 x 11) this is my very favorite card stock of all time!! 3 spools of ribbon 1 spool of twine and 1 package of brads.  



 Here is what you need to do to be entered to win.

1) Be a follower of my blog
2) Leave a comment on this post

That is it so easy and simple, I will pick a winner on Thursday January 30, 2014 you will have one week to get back to me. 


Here is the link to get the free files from the hop today, you only need to do this one time as all the files are in it.  

My secret word is "a" add it to the other words you collect in the right order to solve the mystery.

Here are the stamps used in todays projects, so cute!


Here is the link for the stamps. 

Next up on the hop is Kate or if you get lost just follow the link to the map below.
