Lilypad Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Lily Pad Cards Blog Hop!


If you arrived here from the very talented Mary Dawn's you are in the right place. If you missed any of the previous stops in the hop please go to  Lily Pad Cards to start at the beginning of the hop. This blog hop started yesterday and features seven blogs per day and 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 $800 - 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. In the spirit of welcoming you to the new blog I created a fun little neighborhood to welcome everyone!

The little neighbors and their hood are all from Crafty Secrets - Fairyland.  I drew in the little doors on the mushrooms. :) The background and clouds are stamped using Hero Arts Friends Definition Cling. I hand wrote the Welcome on the sign and was pleased how it turned out. The background was sponged using dye inks and the image colored using watercolor pencils.


The next stop on the hop tomorrow morning  is the fabulous Alice's blog Alice's Little Wonderland you don't want to miss out all the other wonderful designers. If you hit a bad link, you can always go back to Lily Pad Cards and click on the next link in the hop. Please report any bad links to Inlinkz

Thanks for stopping by!
