Apron Strings New Years Blog Hop!

Happy Weekend! I am participating in the Apron Strings blog hop this weekend! I've been a card designer with Apron Strings for a few years, and I am thrilled to be starting another year on the team! If you are starting at my blog, be sure to hop around to the other designers' blogs. At each blog, you'll collect an answer to the important question. . . "WHY APRON STRINGS?" Once you've collected all the answers, send them all in an email to Lori, at lori@apronstringsdesigns.com for a chance to win a Basic Grey 2011 Calendar, shown below! (How cool is that!?)So what's MY answer to the question, Why Apron Strings?

"Full color instructions in the card kits"

And I surely didn't want to leave you without some eye candy today, plus I realized that in the midst of December's chaos, I never shared my December Apron Strings cards! SO, here are three of my favorites from the December All Year Cheer Card Kit!



And here are the other designers blogs to hop around to:

Laura Williams (thats me!)

Melanie Holzwarth

Amy Crockett

Anet Tietjen

Jennifer Halleck

Kristin Perez

Maria Swiatkowski

Sarah Fleming

Patricia Moussatche (Patchi)

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to hop around to the other designers, collect the answers, and email Lori! (Emails must be received by Sunday evening!)

Oh and I almost forgot!!!! Leave a comment on each designer's blog, for chances to win Cookie Jar Treats from the Apron Strings store! (We'll each draw a random winner on Monday morning!)
