It's a party!


Hello and Welcome to.....




I am very honored to be one of those asked to be part of the Lily pad birthday party blog hop! So exciting. 

You should have hopped in by way of, the very creative, Virginia. To hop over to the beginning and join in the fun click here

The details of the hop:

There are three prize packages with a total retail value of over $300! These prizes will be awarded by random draw. There are two ways to be eligible for the prize drawings. You can “like” us on Facebook , but if you do not have a Facebook account, you can also be eligible for the drawings by leaving a comment on the Lily Pad Cards blog. To better your chances even more, leave comments on the other blogs participating in the hop. For each comment you leave, you'll get your name entered again! (but only one comment per blog, please.) You have one week (Sunday April 8th) to post comments to win the awesome prizes.


Enough with the details lets get to the fun stuff.... Just for you Lily Pad!!




Here's everything I used... well everything I can remember:




The polka dot and blue paper were from the stash not to sure where they came from. The water was done with alcohol inks (sail boat blue and stream). I stamped them on the glossy paper. To make the water edge I punched out a scallop edge on scratch paper and traced it on the back of the stamped glossy paper then cut it out by hand. Easy peasy. 

Next on your journey is the, also extremely talented...{How did I manage to get sandwiched between to awesome folks?} Ashley



Have a hopping good time!



Those of you still here....What's a birthday party without presents?! I will give away one (1) stamp set of your choice from the Stamps of Life. (They are some of the best clear stamps on the market) This is open to all my friends local and international. However it is not open to those who live with me.. sorry Dk and Karen you're both out of luck.

To enter all you have to do is:

      1. Follow my blog
      2. Leave a comment

I will choose a winner via Random.org on Monday April 9. I will give the winner one (1) week to contact me. If they don't I'll choose another winner. Please contact me. The last winner didn't and I had to choose someone else, not good for the winner but very good for Jenn, the second winner. :D

Happy Birthday Lily Pad, here's to many many more!!

Katie

Edit (The drawing has closed your welcome to keep commenting though. The winners can be found here.)
