Hoppy Fun with Lily Pad Cards



Welcome to the fabulous new Lily Pad Cards Blog Hop! I'm so happy to finally spill the beans about being a member of the Lily Pad Cards Design Team! What a thrill to be associated with all these wonderfully talented people.

The Blog Hopping fun started on Monday and has traveled the world via 7 blogs each day. With any luck, you should have arrived here from the blog of the mega-talented Kristina Werner.  Okay, this is a little like saying, "Now I'd like to sing a little ditty I just wrote" right after Sarah Brightman has just sung Nessun Dorma to a rousing standing ovation, but....

I'd like to welcome Lily Pad Cards to the crafting neighborhood with a card I made just for this occasion: 


I used a combination of Papertrey Ink, Lawn Fawn and Hero Arts stamps with papers from Basic Grey's Hello Luscious and Life of the Party collections.

Although the Lily Pad Cards Blog doesn't officially open until April 1, 2011, you’ll be able to see a new sneak peek every day until then. And you’ll definitely want to drop by because there are three prize packages with a total retail value of over $800- including a $100 gift certificate to a very popular online store! Go HERE for specific prize details and contest rules. Make sure to send Lily Pad Cards a friend request on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.

This is the last stop for today but you won't want to miss what we have for you tomorrow starting with my friend from across the pond, the lovely and talented Lucy Abrams. Be sure to head to Lucy's Cards first thing Thursday morning (9:00 am EST).  If you hit a bad link, while hopping you can always go back here and click on the next link in the hop. Please report any bad links to webmaster@inlinkz.com

~ Psalm 19:14 ~
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing in Your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
