World Card Making Day Blog Hop + Block Party Time!

 
YAY! It's time for World Card Making Day!
 
Last year, I was honored to be chosen as one of the winners of the Paper Crafts World Card Making Day Contest! Not only did I receive a fabulous prize, but I made some amazing friends along the way!
 
You should be coming from Miss Alyssa Strichfield's blog- if not, I have listed the full hop order at the bottom of this post!
 
 
Here is my card that was chosen as a winner in the "Thinking of You/Hello" category last year!
 
 
 
I happened to have another sheet of that patterned paper (from the Authentique 6x6 bundle: Blissful) so I thought I'd use it on this card! A little bit of a connection to my card from last year!

 
You guys know I'm a neutral kid of gal.... lol! And this card is all me! Layers of neutral patterned paper, a simple sentiment, some trendy hexagons thrown in there- so my style! Haha!
 
The sentiment is from my set GROWTH from Market Street Stamps- I am truly IN LOVE with that font!
 
From here, you're going to hop over to my good friend Laurie Willison's blog! I'm sure she's got something fabulous to share with you over there!
 
Here is the complete hop list if you got lost somewhere along the way!
 
· Savannah O’Gwynn and Linda Dreiling
 
When you're finished the hop- head on back over to the Paper Crafts Connection blog- I hear there are some great prizes up for grabs over there!
 
 
 
While you're crafting this weekend- hop on over to the Market Street Stamps blog to party with us! We're having a Block Party and you could win a fun prize package OR a guest design spot just by linking up a card using Market Street Stamps! Easy peasy! :) 
 
Thanks for stopping by!

  7. When you get a winning combination it's good to keep working with it. Glad to see the bird cage stamp used. I have one but never know how to use it so it makes sense. Good job.

  28. I can see why you used the same paper as last year. It's one of my favorites, too, but I haven't been able to use all of it because I feel like I should frame it or something. You did it great justice with another wonderful card. I like the neutral colors -- perfect for a man or woman. The hexagons are a bonus. I love it all.

  29. Love both of your cards.
