PPPR Welcome Home Blog Hop

Happy Saturday, everyone!  Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Welcome Home Blog Hop.  My wonderful PPPR Design Team decided to put on this hop to welcome me back home to the States (after I lived in Germany for 3 years).  We're using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files to create home-themed projects for the hop, so be sure to stop by each and every blog.  You'll find lots of inspiration and some fun blog candy along the way.

Of course, I couldn't help but join in on the fun!  Here's what I created for the hop:


I just had to use the new Home Sweet Home Cutting Files for this hop.  I got the house, the trees (except for the apple tree...that one's from the Apple Picking Cutting Files Set), the bushes, and the fence from that Home Sweet Home set.  The clouds are from the Kite & Clouds Cutting Files Set, and the card base is from last week's freebie: the Side Step Card Cutting Files.  I created the grass with my Martha Stewart Grass Punch, and the sweet sentiment is from the Pink by Design Home Sweet Home Stamp Set.

Here's what the card looks like head-on.  I hope you like it!


Okay...now, how about some BLOG CANDY????  



One lucky blog hopper will win this fun set: a $15 Gift Certificate to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Graphics Store, Trendy Tape, 2 spools of Timeless Twine, a set of burlap shapes, and a 6x6 Little Yellow Bicycle Paper Pad.  YAY!  Here's what you need to do for a chance to win:

1.  Be a follower of EVERY BLOG in our little hop.  There are just 7 of us, so that shouldn't be too hard.  You won't be sorry...I'm super lucky to have such talented ladies on my Design Team.

AND

2.  Leave a comment at EACH blog along the hop.  Be sure to let us know you are a follower and leave us your e-mail address.

That's all you have to do.  If you would like EXTRA entries, you can also do one or more of the following:

3.  Like the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Facebook Page.  Leave me a separate comment on this blog telling me you did.  Don't forget to leave your e-mail address.

4.  Sign up for the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Newsletter and leave a comment on this blog telling me you did.  You'll get a weekly e-mail telling you about new files, coupon codes/sales, and freebies. Don't forget to leave me the e-mail address you signed up with. :)

Please only US and Canadian mailing addresses....sorry.  I will randomly choose a winner of the hop candy on Tuesday, March 26, 2013. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Your next stop on the hop is Candace.


Here's the whole lineup, just in case you get lost along the way:
