Blog hop, links, enabling and more…

Hello, bloggers.

First, I want to see if anyone else is playing along this Saturday in the Cards for Heroes Blog Hop?  

Bloghopinvite3

This blog hop is SO easy.  Just post a card on Saturday and link to the next person in line.  I did my projects today.  They are hoping for 100 people.  Please come play.  Click HERE for the information.  And, please leave a comment on this post telling me if you signed up.  From those folks, I will pick a winner of some stamps. :)   And I know they have lots of prizes throughout the hop…

I just got a card from a soldier who I sent a box of cards to via Cards for Heroes.  The appreciation from her group was so wonderful.  Made my heart smile.

Time to share.  These are layouts I did for CK.  This one was just a couple months ago.  I love making circles like this with my Quickutz Revolution and dies…

This page is from last year.  The article was on ways to use journaling blocks.  Here, I cut them in half and used them around a photo.  Jamie had emailed me asking about it, so I thought I would share.  It amazes me how Colin is still like the many things listed here…

It is linking time:

  • Debbie Olsen.  My my my.  She is amazingly talented.  Her attention to detail is the best.  Adore THIS card.
  • Love THIS page on the Studio Calico blog.
  • The giftbox Tami Hartley made HERE is so gorgeous.  Can't wait to try it.
  • Great page HERE from Laura Vegas.
  • Great giveaways HERE from Stephanie Howell.  And the sneak peeks are fab!

Speaking of which, I have to show you a couple of my favorite new products.  I bought them.  And am now going back and buying two more. Hee.  They are from Lily Bee – 12×12 rub-ons.  So unique, affordable and cool.  Click on the images to see them bigger.

One last thing: Remember me telling you about the little boy in Africa named Surprise?  He is still not in a loving home.  Please keep praying.  Thanks…

And thanks for stopping by once again.  Off to watch Gilles.  Night. :)
