This is my first time ever to participate in a bloghop, so I guess I'm not a bloghop virgin anymore, am I?! Thank you for visiting. I know there are LOTS of blogs to visit so I'll try to keep it short and to the point. :-) BUT, don't skip out early...there's blog candy being offered at the end of the post!
Here is an Easter card using a free image from Sans Designs. (Update: Someone was kind enough to let me know that this is no longer available as a freebie. Sorry to tease you like that!) Don't forget the OWH Easter deadline is March 18th. Less than 2 weeks away! Be sure to ship a few days ahead of time to make the deadline.
Coloring Page Tuesdays/Elizabeth Dulemba. Don't forget the OWH Mother's Day deadline is March 31.
embossed flower cards like the one I made below for Mother's Day. There are many tutorials that make difficult techniques appear simple enough that even I can do them!
And, in honor of it being a BUNNY hop, I did a few bunny cards that weren't even Easter-themed.
The first uses a free image from Meljen's Designs along with a sentiment I created in Word. The patterned paper is from Cloud 9 Design. I also used a sketch from the OWH Stars and Stamps blog - it's sketch #26. Here's a link to sketches 1-54! Every week there is a new sketch posted on the Stars and Stamps blog so come join in on the fun.
free image and sentiment created by Sandy Allnock, founder and president of OWH. This was my first ever attempt to use shading when coloring a digital image. I was able to print out the image and follow along with Sandy live on OWH/tv as she colored her image. I have lots more to learn, but the knowledge so generously shared through OWH with all cardmakers is amazing. Here's a link to the recording of her live tutorial in case you want to give it a try yourself.
And now....drumroll please...BLOG CANDY! To qualify for the random drawing, simply sign up as a follower on my blog (in the left sidebar). The winner will be announced on Sunday night, so check back to see if you won! (Update: It took me 2 full days to get through the blog hop and still keep up my other responsibilities in life, like feeding my child! So, with that in mind, I will not announce the blog candy winner until Tuesday to give everyone the opportunity to make it all the way through. Thanks for your patience.)
Thanks for visiting! Your next stop as you hop down the bunny trail is Susan's at http://piecesoffatesusan.blogspot.com. Have a hippity hoppity day!
