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 all of the fun. :)
I used Princess Isadora on my card today because I thought it would be fun to alter her a bit and have her 'welcoming' a little froggy friend (in honor of Lily Pad challenges) rather than the original bird that normally perches on her finger. Then I just about threw everything but the kitchen sink onto the card, LOL! Seriously though, with that great floral print that kinda reminded me of a secret garden I wanted to continue that theme through to the embellishments as well.
Ok, time for me to send you on your way... thanks so much for stopping by! The next stop on the hop is Pia’s blog... enjoy all of the inspiration today and be sure to mark your calendars for Lily Pad Cards on April 1st!
