Lily Pad


Welcome to the Lily Pad Cards’ First Birthday Blog Hop! If you are following the hop, you should have arrived from Sally's blog! Happy Birthday to one of the most inspirational sites out there. They are sure celebrating in style too, as there are three awesome prize packages (awarded by random draw). The blog hop lasts for a week, so you have until 12:00 pm EST on Sunday, April 8th to leave comments.
Here are some details about the hop: There are two ways to be eligible for the prize drawings. You can “like” Lily Pads on Facebook, and leave comments on the blogs participating in the hop. 

Here are some details about my card: I started with a white card stock base and stamped the hexagons from The Craft's Meow Thanks Bee to Thee set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I then printed, colored and fussy cut the flower digital image now available at The Craft's Meow Store. After adhering the image to the card base, I wrapped it all with twine and added a sentiment from SRM Press.

I also have another card up at The Craft's Meow Blog, the last stop on the hop!



Thanks for stopping by! The next stop on the hop is Ayana!
