Welcome to stop #28, the final stop on day 4 of the Lily Pad Cards Blog Hop! Lily Pad Cards is a new challenge blog that will feature interviews, articles, videos, challenges, great prizes, and more!
You should have arrived here from sweet Ashley's blog. The Hop features 7 blogs each day. It started Monday, March 27 and will finish tomorrow, Friday, April 1, with the grand opening of Lily Pad Cards! Although Lily Pad doesn’t officially open until tomorrow, you’ll be able to see a new sneak peek every day until then. And 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.
Our Hop’s theme is "Welcome" because we are welcoming Lily Pad Cards to the neighborhood, and we’re also welcoming all of you to come and join in all the fun! I am so honored to be a member of the Design Team of Lily Pad Cards, and to get to work with the other amazingly talented design team members!
Here is my first Welcome card for you all:
supplies: white cardstock, Hero Arts CG215 Wreath of Leaves, peeled paint and shabby shutters distress inks, 3 different shades of pink BoBunny dotted papers (Tutu, Passion Fruit and Blush), and reverse of Avocado Dot, Die-namics die-cut rolled roses, Really Reasonable Ribbon dotted grosgrain ribbon, Hero Arts CH173 Hearts Accent Pearls, computer generated sentiment using "Old Script" font
While I was at it, I made you another version, just changing up a few elements:
supplies: white. aqua and green cardstock, Hero Arts CG215 Wreath of Leaves, peeled paint and shabby shutters distress inks, digital bird from Grapics Fairy, Inkadinkado #97194 Nest, watercolor pencils, computer-generated sentiment (Old Script font), hand-dyed seam binding, faded jeans distress ink, Hero Arts CH165, white Art Flower, the Paper Studio flower brad
In thinking about the theme, my mind went to the wreaths that I hang on our front door and change with the seasons - it is my way of saying welcome to my friends when they come to visit. Thank you so much for visiting me today!
Tomorrow at 9:00 am EST, you can start the Hop again at the Penny Black Blog, and if you follow along you'll end up at the brand new Lily Pad Cards Blog as it officially opens!
