Welcome to the Spring Forward Blog Hop, jointly hosted by Celeste at Touched by a Butterfly and Lora at Notes from the Scrapbooklady - Thanks for stopping in to see the great spring themed projects designed by all the talented participants. I was lucky enough to be allowed to participate along with these talented bloggers! You should have arrived here from the talented Sue but if you just happened upon my blog and want to start from the beginning, check out the list below!
This blog hop will offer one lucky blog hopper a TWO PART blog candy. Celeste and Lora have both put together prize packages and will each mail their prize package to the ONE LUCKY WINNER! The rules are pretty simple - visit each participating blog and leave a comment - a winner will be chosen from among all posts left at Notes from the Scrapbooklady blog and then we will verify that the winner has visited and commented on each blog. The winner will be posted at both Notes from the Scrapbooklady and Touched by a Butterfly and will have one week to contact Lora or Celeste with a mailing address for their prize packages.
Some of the participants may also be offering their own individual blog candy (including me!) - please note their terms and conditions.
This is too funny... So, I've known about this hop forever right? Well I just realized at 9:00 my time that it starts Friday, not Saturday and HELLO, I'm supposed to have made something for the hop!!! I mean, what's a hop without a project? Our challenge was to make a Spring themed project and of course I hadn't made a single thing! Oh no, right? Well, I technically had one hour to get it done so this is a little late and I'm sorry, but late is better than never! Good thing I'm one of the last on the list. :0)
For this "spring" card, I cut a 5x7" piece of cardstock from my stash and then used a cute mushroom background paper from K&Company for the front of the card. The butterfly and trail are stamps from Sandylion and the trail has some K&Co. pearls and some Pearl Stickles for the smaller areas. I faux stitched around the edges with my black Zig pen and then used the leftover strip of cardstock for the sentiment, which is from My Pink Stamper (Buggy Punnies). Lastly I adhered a flower from Bo Bunny to fill up that last little corner. And of course I inked the edges of the card and the background paper. I think it turned out pretty well for being a super quick job!
Now, naturally, I am giving away some blog candy, but unfortunately I did not have time to get a picture up. I promise though, it will be worth your time. I will send out a grab bag of random goodies like I usually do. :0) There is a catch to be entered to win though... You must be a follower and you must leave a comment. There now, that's not so hard is it? I will announce a winner on Monday and the winner will have 72 hours to get back to me. Please be sure to leave me a way to get in touch with you so I can let you know if you're the winner!
Onto the next and final stop which is the lovely Yolie. Don't stop here, you've almost made it! Go on over and show her some love! Be sure to leave her a comment too so you can be entered for the grand prize.
