Operation Write Home Blog Hop & Blog Candy!!!

main image flap of Joy Fold Card

Hey Bleeps! (blog peeps!)
Welcome to the OWH Bog Hop! If you've come from Mari's blog, then you are in the right place! Didn't she have some adorable cards, WOW??? If you would like to start at the beginning, please click here to go to the main page at Operation Write Home!

 Our theme for this blog hop was to make a Spring Card. Last year at this time, was my very first ever blog hop!!! And it was with OWH.......so, I thought it would be fun to use the same stamp set I used then, I just love this lil' chickie & the sentiment "You Crack Me Up!"!!! I even used the same punches for my flowers, LOL!!! But, I made a new kind of card....it's called a Joy Fold....only mine flips up instead of folds out....so, I guess you can say it's a Flip Joy Fold card, LOL!!! I got the idea by watching a super talented SU! demo's video the other day.....if you want to check it out....just click here to see Ann's beautiful card and video!

And, if you love this paper.....I got it FREE!!! If you would like to earn some too....all you need to do it spend $50 in Stampin' Up! products to get this adorable paper pack FREE....or you could pick out something else form the Sale-a-bration catty if you want!!! I just love FREE don't you??
Speaking of Sale-a-bration, it will end soon....along with the Occasions Mini Catty!!! So, hurry and grab some of the Awesome SU! goodies before they retire!!!!

SU! is giving all new recruits, 15% off the starter kit right now as well as $50 in extra goodies, along with all the other awesome products in the starter kit....just for signing up!!! And on top of that, I'll give any new recruit who signs up with me a FREE stamp set of your choice!!! So, if you've always wanted to Love What You Do & Share What You Love with others, now is the time....join my team today!!!

 Also, anyone who places an online order of $50 with me will get three current catties in the mail from me: including the current IB&C (a $10 value!), Occasions Mini and the Sale-a-bration Brochure!!!These catties are  full of samples and inspiration as well as some beautiful SU! products!!! And don't forget about the Clearance Rack too, awesome stuff for awesome prices!!!

Now, what would a blog hop be without some yummy blog candy??? That's right, I'm giving some delicious blog candy to one lucky person!!! I'll be drawing a name one week from today....Saturday March 12, 2011 around noon-ish....somebody will get their very own Easter Blossoms Stamp Set (pg 6. of the Occasions Mini).

 How cool is that, huh!!! Just leave me a comment and I would love it if you became a follower too, but not necessary to win! If you don't have a blog, please leave me a way to contact you, in your comment!
Now, onto Velda's Blog.......where you are sure to be inspired by her lovely creations and all her great advice!!!

You never cease to amaze me with your wonderful creations! I adore all of your layers (guess that's why I love making medallions!), and your colors and DP are a fabulous way to recreate spring! I love all of those punches...you must have a ton of them. I haven't had a chance to go through the hop yet, but I'm sure I won't be disappointed. Great deals on your SU stuff!
