Welcome, Lily Pad Cards! Blog Hop

Welcome to stop #5 in the Lily Pad Cards blog hop! I am so excited to be a part of this event that finally reveals what Lily Pad Cards is all about and features so many of my paper crafting idols from all over the world. This blog hop starts today and will feature seven blogs per day when 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 Cards 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.

I have two cards to show you. The first welcomes spring. The girl is Little Frieda stamp by The Craft's Meow. The papers are Echo Park Springtime and the sentiment is SRM Stickers Sentiments' Spring.
Welcome Spring
My second card uses GinaK's Lovely Labels 3 (label and sentiment) stamps and Layers of Color's Embroidered Butterfly, which was colored with Copics. The papers are Crate Paper's Portrait Collection.
Welcome Home Butterfly
