Lily Pad Cards First Birthday Blog Hop

Hello my stamping friends:

Welcome to the Lily Pad Cards' First Birthday blog hop! You should be joining us from the very talented Nancy Krueger's blog.  If not, you could start at the beginning at Lily Pad Cards.

There are three prize packages with a total retail value of over $300!  These prizes will be awarded by random draw.  There are two ways to be eligible for the prize drawings.  You can “like” us on Facebook, but if you do not have a Facebook account, you can also be eligible for the drawings by leaving a comment on the Lily Pad Cards Blog.  To better your chances even more, leave comments on the other blogs participating in the hop.  For each comment you leave, you'll get your name entered again! (but only one comment per blog, please.)  You have until 12:00 p.m. EST on Sunday, April 8 to leave your comment.
Here's the card I made to celebrate Lily Pad Cards' first anniversay.  I do hope Frederick likes the Lily flower topped cupcake!
Supplies:

Stamps:  Hero Arts (CG269 Happy Definition, AC001 Untitled Postmark, CL477 Delicate Leaf Clusters); Hot Off The Press (HOTP-1062 Small Cupcake)
Paper: cream card base, Bazzill Basic (Orange Peel card stock - Green Tea), white card stock
Ink: Ranger Distress (Peeled Paint, Broken China); ColorBox Pigment (Lilac); VersaColor (Raspberry)
Embellishments: small pearl
Others: black marker

Thanks for stopping by! The next stop on the hop is of a stamper I admire very much, Barb Engler's blog. If you hit a bad link, you can always go back to Lily Pad Cards to view the master list of blog links. Please report any bad links to aris@inlinkz.com.
