Leap Around The World Blog Hop!

As one of the 50 international host blogs, I am gearing up now for the upcoming Let's Scrap "Leap Around the World" February blog hop!! This fun event will start at 10:00am on February 1 and end on February 29th at 11:59pm according to the main page clock on the Let's Scrap website (your clock may vary, so check the time difference).
I would love it if you joined me in this big hop! There are several things you can do RIGHT NOW to be prepared:
  • Make sure you are signed up as a follower on my blog.
  • Find all those scraps of paper you have been setting aside for the last 5 years. You will need them because the blog hop is all about making CARDS!
  • Clean off your scrap table and put the pizza delivery number on speed dial!
  • Oh, wait, scratch the pizza delivery have all month to hop!!
OK, a few more details. You did read correctly: there are 50 blog hosts! Once you have joined Let's Scrap, at each blog, you will get two chances to win some blog candy (aka: booty, prizes)! Do the math! You will have 100 chances to win free stuff...and good stuff, too! This is also the perfect opportunity to restock your card stash! The first chance comes when you join/follow each blog and leave a comment. The second chance comes when you use the card sketch on each blog to create a card, layout or other project based upon the card sketch appearing on each blog--they are all different! You then must post your creation in the Let's Scrap website gallery, then go back to each blog and leave a second comment linking back to your gallery post. Don't be are doing only one card at a time! Our hope is that you will visit every blog, but, remember, you have the whole month of February to do this.

I will be #34 on the hop!

Looking forward to seeing you "at the hop."

Hugs to all and God bless!

January card

There is a little group on face book that is having a monthly challenge of making Christmas cards with the hope of getting a few cards made before the Christmas rush! This is my card for January. I used a new stamp that I just received this past month. I am still trying to learn copics so played with them a little. I promised myself I had to learn to use them and learn to like using them this year! lol The papers are from my stash and have no clue as to what brand they are or how long they have lived here.

Challenges I am entering:

Simply Create- layers layers and more layers I think this card has 10 layers of paper total

Sentimental Sunday...Snow, Blue or Glitter used blue copics on the image and then also had stickles to the stay and the baby's halo

Creative Inspirations Paint
-something old......patterned papers, charm, ribbon and rhinestones....have no idea how long these have been in my stash but at least a couple years now.

Dream Valley- anything goes

Fashionable Stamping - new stash. The stamp is new....and used some of my new copics too!

The Squirrel and the Fox-something new...stamp

2 Sisters- things with wings...the two little birds!

Our Daily Bread- in with the new...out with the old

Fairytale- something new...stamp

Thanks so much for stopping by and God bless you all.
