Good morning! Welcome to my entry for the July Papertrey Ink Blog Hop! Wow, it feels like I’ve spent the whole week with all of you PTI friends! And I guess we have! What a fun Stamp-a-faire weekend! After an exhausting but quite enjoyable weekend, I wasn’t sure if I had it in me to make another card so soon…but I had so much fun with the Pretty Peonies stamps and dies (the dies are the BEST!) I put them to use again. Now this card took a LONG time to make…I fiddled with the layers, sizes and colours of the peonies forEVER until I just said, “Enough!” and started gluing down! LOL Here’s our inspiration photo :) Thanks for visiting and on an extra special day for me! It’s my third year of blogging! If you want to join in the celebration…scroll down…if not, thanks for visiting and see you on the HOP!
Well, it’s hard to believe it’s been 3 years of blogging! I guess I’m supposed to say something profound and sentimental…but I think I do that throughout the year. The biggest change this year was the move to the new house…and my new studio. I feel more and more comfortable in it every day and more and more blessed that I even have it. To celebrate, I’ve gathered a few things from the studio to offer up as an Anniversary goodie bag!
1 package of Bazzill Card Shoppe card stock (100lb weight)- courtesy of the fine folks over on the Bazzill Basics website!
1 package Prima fabric buttons
1 package Maya Road Organza flowers
2 pieces of lace from the Funkie Junkie
1 organza flower from the Funkie Junkie
1 small bag full of fun embellishments (Studio Calico wood veneer butterflies and tiny stars, resin flowers, mini wood clothespins, Studio Calico metal badge)
1 new W Plus 9 Folk Art Florals stamp set
2 rolls of washi tape
How does that sound? To win, simply leave a comment below by Sunday, July 29th! How easy is that?! LOL I need to be able to contact the winner so if you do not have your Blogger account hooked up to your email, please leave your email in your comment or come back on Monday, July 30, to see if you’ve won. The winner will have 3 days to contact me, otherwise I’ll pick a new name. Thanks for celebrating with me! YOU ALL are what I am most thankful for in this blog journey. So today and everyday, I will quote the woman my friend Lynn met one day and say, “I am Blessed.” Enjoy the rest of the hop!
