DeNami Simply Scallops Blog Hop

Welcome to the first DeNami Blog Hop of 2011.  The theme for this month is "Simply Scallops".  When I saw that Scallops was the focal point, I was a little intimidated.  I wasn't 100% sure what that meant so I contact Pauline for some guidance.  Pauline sent me a link to some of her cards so I would understand what was required.  Thank you Pauline!   J 

As always, there are many different designers who have made magnificent projects for your inspiration.  You should have arrived here from Annette's Blog.  If you think you may have missed one of the blogs please go to the DeNami Design Blog HERE where you can either start at the beginning, or jump to the blogs you might have missed.

I just received a shipment of DeNami stamps this week.  Perfect timing since I wanted to create a card with something new.  I went with Mimi w/B-day Cake.
