It's The Lily Pad's 1st Birthday Blog Hop.....with GIVE-A-WAYS!

Welcome to the Lily Pad Cards’ First Birthday blog hop! You should be joining us from Nina Brackett's Blog.

There are three prize packages with a total retail value of over $300! These prizes will be awarded by random draw. To be eligible, you need to “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. If you would like to better your chances,  you can leave comments on the blogs participating in this hop (including the Lily Pad). For each comment, you get your name entered again (but only one comment per blog, please).  In addition, I also have a small giveaway on my own blog too!  So there are even more chances for you to win. Details below after my project.

Let's get right to my little project!  I just love this large cupcake stamp and the zig zag stamp from Hero Arts:

Lily Pad turns one year old

So many fun ways to color and decorate that adorable cupcake!  Now on to my giveaway: a new Hero Arts/Studio Calico set, Doodlebug Designs Twine, Hero Arts Mid-Tone Inks, a Hero Arts Newspaper Print Design Block, a Lawn Fawn Gnome set, a Technique Tuesday silhouette stamp, and a new Cosmo Cricket paper pad.

Lily Pad turns one year old giveaway

Enjoy and thanks for stopping by! The next stop on the hop is Elizabeta's Blog. If you hit a bad link, you can always  go back to Lily Pad to view the master list of blog links. Please report any bad links to aris@inlinkz.com.

Ayana Posadas said...

Your project for Lily Pad's birthday is sooo cute, Tiffany!! You are always so creative!...
I just read in another post that you are turning off your comments to your blog. I guess, I understand how you feel. I feel guilty sometimes too when I'm not able to visit everyone. It gets overwhelming. But, I'm happy to read that you will still be posting. It's too bad I didn't get to meet up with you when I was in CA! I would have loveddd to have met you. But who knows what will happen in the future. LoL...
Hope all is going well with you. Hope you and your beautiful family had a great Easter weekend!!! :)
