Leap around the World Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to your next stop in the


If you came here from Sesil Cratin @ their blog http://sesilcratin.blogspot.com/ then you are in the right place! If you did not, Mindi Brown @ http://scrapchat-n-coffeetalk.blogspot.com/ has the hop order to help you find your way.

I am so excited to be a blog host for such a fun and huge blog hop! I joined the blog hop at Let's Scrap at the beginning of 2010 and it was loads of fun.  I got so many layouts completed and even won RAK!
Here is the sketch I am showcasing for the hop……
 

Here are my example(s)

In this card, the top strip says Happy Birthday which takes the form of the sentiment.  I dipped the edges of the pattern paper in water and rolled the edges to give the card a grungy look because it was for my son.
 

Both these cards were created for my son who just turned 21. Now for the fun part! Here is the RAK that I am offering!


Here is how easy it is to enter for my random draw:

*Be or become a member of Let’s Scrap which you can do by clicking here http://letsscrap.ning.com/. It is free, easy and fast! Once you get there, I am sure you will love it!

*Become a follower of my blog

*Leave me a comment telling me what you think of this sketch and the blog hop, and if you would like a second chance in the draw


*Make a card from the sketch I have posted and upload it to the gallery at Let’s Scrap. Please tag it as 1-20-10, LEAP22.  Please note there is a space after the comma, and no space between LEAP and 22 and that LEAP is all capitals. 


*Leave a comment with a link to your card on Let’s Scrap.


The hop ends at 11:59 pm Central Standard time February 29th, which you would be able to track using the clock on the main page of Let’s Scrap.


Thanks for visiting, my blog page and becoming a follower. Your next stop will be the talented
Anne Gaffney-iehl

If you get lost along the way or have joined the hop in the middle, Mindi Brown @ http://scrapchat-n-coffeetalk.blogspot.com/ is the beginning of the hop. You don’t want to miss any of the fun!

So get scrapping and make all the cards you will need for 2012 and even 2013!

Looking forward to seeing what you create.
Sharon

  6. Hi Sharon (Shaz), I've been a follower for a while already. This is such a versatile sketch, but I personally love that card with the key and the grunged papers edges. Looks sooo manly!

  7. Thank you so much for hosting the Let's Scrap blog hop. I love both of your cards, the 1st one is very vintage looking with the key and the distressed edges and the 2nd one is very cute with the letters in the squares and the cute hats. This sketch is on of my favorite Let's Scrap card sketches, it is so versatile and I am having a great time leaping/hopping from blog to blog. I hope to get a chance to make a card for a 2nd chance.

  39. Hi Shaz!
    I am brand new to blog hopping and find it to be very interesting and fun but time consuming! When I saw your sketch, I thought it looked difficult. It has so much going on that I didn't think I would be able to make a card based on it, but after seeing your cards, I see that it isn't really difficult after all. I love the one with the key on it!
