Paper Crafts magazine Presents: 365 Cards Blog Hop

Eeek! It's here, it's here! I've been waiting for Paper Crafts Magazine's 365 Cards issue to come out for what feels like FOREVER!  This magazine literally has a card a day to inspire you throughout the entire YEAR! I will not soon forget the day that acceptance emails went out, and I found out that I had NINE cards picked up for publication in this issue!  I was walking on air for QUITE a few days! I am thrilled to participate in the 365 Card blog hop today, with a September card.
My card features beautiful Brilliant White card stock from Discount Cardstock, stickers from EAD Designs, a chipboard apple from October Afternoon's Schoolhouse line, plus lots of blingity-bling from Want2Scrap. And what card would be complete without a great big red BOW!? 


I hope you'll visit all the talented designers on the hop, for some month-by-month inspiration, and then head to the Paper Crafts Connection blog, (if you haven't already!) and leave a comment for a chance to win a spectacular prize!  Be sure to leave a comment on the designer's blogs too, because we'll each be choosing a random winner to have their very own copy of 365 Cards!


(*Comments must be posted by midnight (MDT) on Sunday, November 13th! Be sure to check back and see if you are a winner, and leave us a way to contact you!)

Thank you so very much for coming by today! I cannot explain how excited I am to be participating in a Paper Crafts Magazine blog hop! Eeek! It's so exciting! Please come back and visit me again! Happy hopping!!! xoxo
