1st Birthday Blog Hop for Lily Pad Cards

Welcome to the Lily Pad Cards First Birthday blog hop! This will last for one week!
A true whizz around the world with inspiration from the four corners - however illogical that may be as a globe has no corners! You should be joining us from Donna's blog 3 Umbrellas. From an island in the Pacific, to one in the Indian Ocean.

Prizes! Prizes! Prizes!
There are three prize packages with a total retail value of over $300! These prizes will be awarded by random draw. There are 2 ways to be eligible, you need to “like” us on Facebook here, but if you don't have a Facebook account, you can leave a comment on the Lily Pad Blog, here. If you would like to improve your chances, you can leave comments on each of the blogs participating in this hop. For each comment, you get your name entered again (but only one comment per blog, please). 
You can comment until 12:00 EST on 8 April to be eligible for the lucky draw!
 
. . . wishing Lily Pad a BIG 1st birthday!! They are stars.

I used a kraft card base. Stamped the Lily of the Valley stamp (where there is free worldwide shipping if you buy before midnight tonight!) on Neenah white with Memento Black and coloured with Copics.  Stamped the Stampin' Up Wish Big sentiment and embossed with white embossing powder. Punched some stars and added dashes and dots with a white gel pen.


In celebration, I will be giving some blog candy too!  You need to be a follower, and leave a comment.




Thanks for stopping by! Now you can hop over the Atlantic to the US for Kathy's creation at The Daily Marker.
