Bunny Hop Bloghop!!

Hello, and welcome all bloghoppers!!  If you are taking it all in order, you just arrived from Purple Funtastick Creations by Kari--
What a great day for a bloghop!!  Here in my neck of the woods it is a rainy, cool, droopy day--perfect weather to run around on the internet and have fun!!

This is a simple flower note card I made.  The chipboard flower just seemed to be a perfect match to the floral paper--and the plane green made it stand out.

On my way to a swap the other day, I realized I had forgotten scissors.  When I stopped to get a pair at a Dollar General store, I found some plain white mini journals.  How perfect for altering!!  So, I bought several and have gifted a few so far.

This one is embellished with wallpaper border and glitter.  Each one I have done so far is totally different from the others.  I will be inking and distressing the edges on this one next.  I really love these little books--the covers have a good weight and the pages are almost as heavy as cardstock.

I would like to offer up a gift of several useful embellishing items to one of you who will leave a comment.  I have way too much fun stuff that hubby says is weighting down our house!!  The gift pack will include some encyclopedia pages from a 1958 set, pages from an old French book, pages from an old German book, and several surprises.  Lots of great things for making note cards and collages.

You next stop for the Bunny Hop Bloghop is Jennifer at: http://cardsbyjennifer.blogspot.com/


As always I am hoping that OWH gets lots of help gathering cards for the next shipment!!!


Thanks to all--
