Paper Sundaes First Ever Blog Hop

Welcome to the first ever Paper Sundaes Blog Hop! If you have arrived here from Shana's blog then you are on the right track! If not, please go back to the start at Christine's so you don't miss any of the beautiful inspiring cards or blog candy! Remember to check all the stops so as to not miss any candy and finish at Paper Sundae blog for the big candy.

I have 2 cards to show you today. They are both made with wonderful stamps from one of my favorite stamp companies Flourishes. The first one is made with I Love Roses set. I made it for the Feel the Love challenge on Flourishes. The roses are stamped on watercolor paper and colored with SU markers and aquapainter.
The second one features the Strawberries set. The image is again stamped with Versafine on watercolor paper, embossed to prevent bleeding and colored with SU inks and aquapainter. DP and cardstock are from Stampin Up. I'll be entering this card to a Saturday Spotlight challenge that's called Love without hearts.

Now about the blog candy. I just moved my blog, so to celebrate the new beginning I'm offering the following blog candy.
It includes
Inkadinkado Sentiment Stamp Set (everyone can use new sentiments ;) ), 10 6x6 sheets of Dovecraft Designer Paper, package of rhinestones and pearls and 5 yards of my favorite sheer ribbon.
How can you win it? It's easy. Everyone has 3 chances:
  1. Become a follower of my blog or if you already are just comment!
  2. Post a link to my candy on your blog for a second chance
  3. Become a Paper Sundae Challenge Blog follower for the third chance.

Don't forget to comment so I'll know you entered. The candy is open to anybody worldwide and will be open till midnight EST January 16, 2010 - I will draw a winner on Sunday January 17.

The next stop on our blog hop is Carla, make sure you check out her beautiful card! Don't forget to keep your eye out for candy along the way. And make sure you join us on January 17th at Paper Sundaes for our first challenge and the announcement of the blog candy winners. Then pop back over here to see my challenge card and see the winner of my candy!
