2nd Annual Paper Issues Blog Hop

16 Sep

I am so excited to be part of Paper Issues 2nd blog hop.  You will be treated to the best designers along the way.  We have all made some very fun things for you.

I have made a little card to follow our new theme,which starts today, called TREE HUGGER.

This hop which starts at 9am eastern, will run through Sunday the 18th 11:00pm eastern.

Also, the Paper Issues ETSY store is offering you a coupon code to use during the hop which will give you 25% off your order.

The coupon code for the Hop is HOP25.



A lot of us have RAK’s to give away.  There are 3 different groups.

Scrapbook/Art Journal hop starts at this link:


Altered Project Hop starts at this link:


and the Card Hop starts HERE!! (ME)


Without further ado, here is my card for you all!

I used this adorable Digital Stamp from Tiddly Inks called:

Tree Hugger

I used a mixture of papers, some from Pink Paislee, Authentique Paper, Doodlebug Inc. and Stampin’ Up!  cardstock.

This card was so fun to make.  All the bright colors just make me giddy!

I love how the tree goes over the top of the page.  I put little extra touches here and there, see if you can spot any!  Can you see my button flower, my bead flower and the bling?

Well since you are here on the first stop for the CARD HOP, it is only fair for you to be tempted by the RAK/BLOG CANDY I am offering.

We will announce all the winner’s on Monday the 19th, some time.

My RAK is all Authentique Paper goodies.  All the papers measure 6 x 6.

I have included a sampling of each and every line they currently offer!

Isn’t this a great way yo start your weekend?

To be eligible for MY RAK,

you must be a follower of my blog,

you must leave a comment

and you get an extra entry if you FRIEND me on Facebook!

That is up to 3 chances you have to win this RAK.

I will make sure the 2 required requirements have been met when drawing a winner.
