Lily Pad Cards Blog Hop

Welcome to stop 4 of 35 in the Lily Pad Cards blog hop! This blog hop starts today and will feature seven blogs per day when it culminates on Friday, April 1, with the grand opening of Lily Pad Cards 
Lily Pad Cards is a new challenge blog that will feature interviews, articles, videos, challenges, great prizes, and more!

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 $300 - 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.

I've made two cards for you - just to make you all feel extra welcome ;)

See that blue frog
on my card? I was inspired by the one over at Lily Pad Cards - he is just the cutest ;)
 Supplies: 
Hero Arts Stamps: Dots Cling,  Envelope Pattern, Sending Happy Thoughts & Printers Type 
Lawn Fawn Stamps: Forest Critters
Papers: Bazzill,  October Afternoon & Sofies Dream.


And here is my second card for you - with a welcoming banner and the darling silhouettes.

 Supplies: 
Hero Arts Stamps: Musical Walk & Printers Type 
Lawn Fawn Stamps: Bannerific
Papers: Bazzill,  MLYB

  

 Thanks for stopping by! The next stop on the hop is the super talented Nina Brackett’s blog.
