Welcome to Lily Pad Cards' First Birthday blog hop! 

I hope you arrived here by way of Carol's blog. There are over 50 participating blogs with lots of inspiration and fabulous prizes, and you have a week to visit and leave your comments.

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:

Here's my birthday card for today's hop.


I used Hero Arts' new Lattice Background stamp and ink distressed it with Gathered Twigs distress ink. I used Spellbinders Large Circle and Scallop Circle dies and made a simple circle card. Some felt roses and leaves were added, and the sentiment is from an older Hero Arts stamp set. 

Your next stop is Janet's wonderful blog. If you hit a bad link, you can always go back to Lily Pad Cards to view the master list of blogs. Please report any bad links to aris@inklinkz.com.

Thanks so much for hopping by! You have until 11:59pm EST on Sunday, April 8th to leave your comments and be eligible for the prizes. Happy Hopping!
