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 ;)
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.

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

Time to Celebrate (with a giveaway)

I have decided to reopen my personal blog... 

There has been a lot going on lately putting together a Design Team for my web shop blog. Go check out the talented team which will help me inspire other cardmakers through their wonderful work. We have some great themes & ideas for the coming months...

... I wanted to use this blog for more personal stuff, showing my work when entering challenges and such without people being confused about the many authors on the other blog.  This blog will be in English only.

I did take away all the old posts (frankly, I was a bit too embarassed about my early work - haha!) - but I couldn't make myself remove the sweet post about my cat Harry stealing my cards ... See previous post! (almost two years ago!)

Lets celebrate the reopening of this blog with a giveaway - shall we? 
Leave a comment on this post (only) by 5th of April and you'll get a chance to win this:

and some lovely washi tape.

Everybody can enter regardless the country ;)

And now for some celebration cards ;)

The next one is a simple tag I made stamping the dress from the Kiss from the Sun set on canvas for some fun texture... 

And here is a close up..

Thanks for stopping by...
