Lollipop Crafts is celebrating 2 years of challenge blogging!!! Wow, doesn’t feel like it’s been 2 years, but it really has been according to the calendar! Time surely flies by when you’re having fun!! We have a special treat for you in honor of our marking. A BLOG HOP!!! yep, filled with lots of surprises! The blog hop runs from today August 1st until August 4th. So if you don’t have time to check out everyone today, you can come back tomorrow and finish the hop.
If you hopped onto my blog by chance, PLEASE head back to Lollipop Crafts blog and begin your celebrating there. There’s so much going on you don’t want to miss out on fun and surprises. You should have reached my blog from Juelmarie’s blog.
In addition to our celebration and blog hopping fun, we have a SPECIAL challenge just for this celebration too. Hurry though, this challenge ends on the 4th at Midnight PST as well. The challenge is CELEBRATION!! Any celebration that is, birthday, anniversary, new baby, wedding and more! Link up your celebration creations to InLinkz on the LC blog.
Just so you know, there are hidden prizes around the DT blogs, so don’t miss out on visiting everyone and there are 2 prizes on the LC blog – one for a random hopper who leaves a comment on the LC blog and one for participating in the challenge.
As well, just for this hop we have a fabulous guest designer joining us! It’s Barbara from Forgotten Scraps! You are going to meet her at the end of the hop!
So I’ve got a great couple of cards for you for this Celebration! I am not going to tell you who my sponsor is for it! I am hoping that you can guess by looking at the image!
Leave me a comment telling me who you think my sponsor is, and after the blog hop I will announce and from all the correct guesses, will randomly pick a name to receive a small batch of goodies from me! I am going to be away until the 13th tending to some important family matters but I will try to post my winner before then and the prize will be mailed out when I get back.
This card represented just a personal celebration! I love shopping and anytime I can have the chance to do so, works for me. If I have to pick an obscure celebration like National Happiness Happens month (people actually celebrate this) I am all for it. Any excuse to hit the mall!
I created this one with some Basic Grey papers I had used for another project. The image is colored with copics and my sew easy ink stitcher added a bit of faux stitching. The sentiment is just printed out from my computer. Ribbon and bling are from my stash.
and card #2
This one is just a fun birthday card. Who doesn’t love to shop for new stuff with all the gift cards and cash for their birthday! I was working on another project and came across this kit that I had of birthday papers from Hot off the Press. I had totally forgotten about them. I am loving the colors so I have started to use them over again. Again the image is colored with my copics and I have added some big brads, bling and twine from my stash. The kit came with some word art so I thought it would be fun to add that as well.
Thanks for stopping by! and now it is time for you to hop along. Your next stop is Mimi who has another great sponsor for you to check out!
When you’re done with the hop, make sure to stop by the LC blog again and say so. Have Fun!!!
