Blog Hop - last day and a GIVEAWAY!!!

It's the last day of the Caardvarks blog hop!
Here is my third card.


Supplies: Cardstock - Core'dinations Whitewash; Stamps - Hero Arts (leaves, flower, sentiment); Button - Hero Arts; clear embossing powder.

This card is inspired by THIS one by the fabulous Jennifer McGuire.  Isn't she just the most inspirational person in the world???

And a bonus card!  I couldn't stop...

Supplies: Cardstock - Core'dinations Whitewash; Stamps - Hero Arts (butterfly, sentiment); ribbon - Creative Impressions; Cuttlebug embossing folder.

The next stop on the hop is Heidi - click HERE to hop on.
Or click here to start at the beginning. :)

And I thought, given your total commitment to the Caard Hop, I'd do a little giveaway.

Leave a comment by Friday 21st August and I will enter your name into a random draw to win some yummy sheets of 6x6 Core'dinations Cardstock, and a few other random goodies. 

I hope you have been playing, having fun and getting inspired by all the amazing Caardvarks crew.  And maybe even winning a prize!  Good luck to everyone, and see you tomorrow.
