Julie's Blogoversary Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on Julie's Blogoversary Blog Hop to Celebrate Friendship!  If you came here from Friends with Flair or Clear It Out Challenges, there are some fabulous crafty inspirations and some great blog candies along the way, so you may want to start at Julie's Blog to get in on all the good stuff!  You have until midnight on March 3!

We are celebrating a one-year blogoversary of Julie!  Julie is a fellow design team member of mine at Crop Chocolate and a really terrific gal!  To celebrate her blogoversary and her friendship, I created a couple of Unity projects.  The card is also being linked up to Clear It Out challenge (using two ribbons).

First, I inked up Maggie-girl!  Isn't she fabulous?!  (Tip of the day:  Cuttlebug A plates work really well as large acrylic blocks!)


I am going to give away a blog candy to someone who follows my blog and comments on this post.
The winner will be announced on Monday, March 4, so be sure to check back to see if it's you.  Part of the blog candy will be sharing in my obsession for twine!


These cards each have 5 yards of Raspberry Lemonade Timeless Twine on them and feature a SOTW stamp - Hello Pretty.  I'll give one of these cards (along with some stamps and other goodies) as blog candy.  The other has been sent to Julie (along with my Maggie girl card) to thank her for hosting this blog hop!

Now, off to the wonderful and fabulously inspiring Corrie's blog!

Craftily yours,

Karen (karey2005)

  3. I love you, girl! You truly rock my world! That Maggie Girl creation is fantastic! How am I going to keep resisting them with you creating something that awesome out of that Angie Girl stamp? And, I'm guessing she was a hoot to color. Oh man. I can't shop on Unity 3 weekends in a row. No, Julie, NO! And you made ME a card? Honey, that was too sweet! I love that twine! I'm going to have to recycle that twine! It's so gorgeous! I'm getting obsessed with twine, too! OMG! What is wrong with me?

    Anyway... thank you for your friendship. I truly cherish our chats, your humor, your kindness. You make me smile all the time. And I love your creations. Thank you for being a part of my blog life. Thank you for being a part of my life.
