Mother's Day Blog Hop

Welcome to Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and the Mothers Day Blog Hop! This hop is all about Mother’s Day and a challenge to create any Mother's Day project, but no flowers allowed!

If you have come from Patricia's blog, you are in the right place. If you stumbled upon my blog and want to play along, you can do so by starting at Giselle’s Blog (www.crossmyheartpapercrafts.blogspot.com) This hop is full of talented ladies {and giveaways, too}!

Here's what I came up with for the hop:



My mom and dad recently came all the way over here to Germany for a visit, and I had such a great time with them.  So, I thought this would be a great Mother's Day card for my mom...since I DO love hanging out with her. :o)

The little monkeys and vines came from Create a Critter, the leaves are from Sweethearts, and the bows are from Once Upon a Princess.  I used an embossing stylus and my hubby's mouse pad to add some veins and dimention to the leaves, and I also added tons of the new fluid chalks I just got.  I just LOVE them!!!  I don't know what took me so long to get some.  Anyway...I also added a little bling with my i-Rock and a computer generated sentiment,  and then my little card was all done. I hope you like it!  :o)

Now....drumroll, please....how about some BLOG CANDY!?!?!?  YAY!


I ordered myself the Our Mothers Stamp Set from Pink by Design a little while ago, and GUESS WHAT!?!?!  I ordered an extra one to give away to one of YOU!  YIPPEE!  I am still eagerly awaiting the arrival of my wonderful stamps, but they'll be here soon, and I can't wait to give one away!  Here's what you need to do for a chance to win:

1. Become a follower and leave a comment letting me know. Or, let me know you're already a follower. Please don't forget to include your e-mail address.

That's all you have to do to have a chance to win! But, if you want extra chances, here's what you can do:

2. For an extra entry, LIKE my Facebook page and leave another comment telling me you did so. You can click LIKE on my left sidebar or follow the link. Don't forget to leave your e-mail address in your comment.

3. For another extra entry, post this giveaway on your blog and leave another comment with a link back to the post. Also, don't forget your e-mail address.

That's it! :o) Please...only US mailing addresses. I'll leave this giveaway open all week, and then I'll randomly choose a winner on Friday, April 29.
