Lily Pad Cards Blog Hop (Day 3)



Welcome to stop #2  in the Lily Pad Cards blog hop! If you are coming through from Alice's Little Wonderland, I welcome you to the hop! If you happen to drop by, please get on the hop and enjoy the ride! This blog hop starts on March 28 and will feature seven blogs per day when it culminates on Friday, April 1, with the grand opening of  Lily Pads Cards. Lily Pad Cards is a new challenge blog that will feature interviews, articles, videos, challenges, great prizes, and more!!! Can you feel the excitement?

Although Lily Pad doesn’t officially bloom 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.

The hop’s theme is Welcome because not only are we welcoming Lily Pad Cards to the neighborhood, but we’re also welcoming all of you to come in and join in all the fun. Let's get on with the card I made for this special occasion. As you are hopping from blog to blog, I thought this design is perfect for Lily Pad's Blog hop.
#1
Hero Arts stamps: CL323 Froggy, CL446 Sew Artsy,
Others: SRM Stickers, ribbons, gems, Glossy Accent, Basic Grey paper, Starbucks coffee sleeves (Lily Pads)
#2
Thanks for stopping by! The next stop on the hop is Sally Sherfield's Blog.  If you hit a bad link, you can always go to Lily Pads Cards and click on the next link in the hop. Please report any bad links to webmaster@inlinkz.com. I strongly encourage you to subscribe to Lily Pads (one more chance to win $800 value of prizes). The talented people behind this blog are simply the best froggie crafter that you have ever known. ! Indeed, it's a
Hoppy, Hoppy {Happy Day}!
