Lily Pad Birthday Blog Hop


Hi everyone and welcome to Lily Pad Cards' 1st Birthday Blog Hop! I am thrilled to have you joining us. You should arrive here from Jess' blog.

I know you have many blogs to visit, so let's go straight to the cards. My first card is using this super cute mice stamp from Lili of the Valley called Sprinkled With Sugar. I've been eyeing this stamp since it's been released last year and finally got it like a couple months ago. Yeah... bad me... not playing with new stamp right away. :) 



See that little one that jumping off the sifter? Yep, I got this stamp because of that little one. He's just too cute & fun! I fussy cut this one mice and adhere it with pop-dots for an extra dimension.

The next card is using the cute gnome, Jerome from Paper Smooches. Love me some gnome. And turquoise hamster??? Why not?  :)




Now, we're not only celebrating with a blog hop, we're also giving away 3 prize packages with a total retail value of over $300!! These prizes will be awarded by random draw. To be eligible, you need to "like" Lily Pad Cards on Facebook

You can also better your chances by leaving comments of the blogs participating in this hop (including the Lily Pad bog). For each comment, you get your name entered again (but only one comment per blog, please).

The blog hop will last for a week. That  means you can leave comments for a chance to win prizes until 12.00 pm EST on Sunday, April 8.

From here, please hop on over to Darlene. Thank you all so much for stopping by here. Have a blessed Sunday everyone.
