Lily Pad Cards Birthday Blog Hop!

Hi and welcome to the Lily Pad Cards' First Birthday Blog Hop! If you arrived from Patricia's Blog you are on the right track. If not, you can start the hop from the Lily Pad.

There are THREE prize packages with a total retail value of over $300 up for grabs! These prizes will be awarded by random draw. There are two ways to be eligible for the prize drawings. You can "like" us on Facebook, but if you do not have a Facebook account, you can also be eligible for the drawings by leaving a comment on the Lily Pad Cards Blog. To better your chances even more, leave comments on the blogs participating in this hop. For each comment you leave, you'll get your name entered again! (but only one comment per blog, please.)

On to my card for the hop.


I used the adorable sunflower from Hearts Sing set illustrated by Torico from her  Etsy shop Birdie Brown. I adore Torico's super cute style!


The image is printed on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then cut out.


No patterned paper here, just a few strips of washi tape that I picked up when I was in Taiwan this January. =) The sentiment is from Fillable Frames #1 set by Papertrey Ink.

That's all I have. It's time to send you to Claudia's blog. I can't wait to see what she came up with for the hop! =) If you hit a bad link, you can always go back to the Lily Pad to view the master list of blog links. Please report any bad links to aris@inlinkz.com. Don't forget to leave comments along the way for the chance to win the prizes. You have until 12:00 p.m. EST on Sunday, April 8 to enter for the random draw.



Have fun hopping and thanks for stopping by!
