Leap Around the World blog hop


** This post will remain at the top for the month of February.
Please scroll down for other posts throughout the month**


Hello and welcome to your next stop in the Let’s Scrap “Leap Around the World” blog hop.

If you came here from Betty Anne Orr at http://letsgetscraphappy.blogspot.com/ then you are in the right place! If you did not, Mindi Brown at http://scrapchat-n-coffeetalk.blogspot.com/ has the hop order to help you find your way.

I am so excited to be the 5th blog host out of 50 for such a fun and huge blog hop!

Here is the sketch I am showcasing for the hop:


Here is my card:

I want to apologize for the quality of the picture. My camera decided to stop working at the most inopportune time and I had to scan both my card and blog candy. Unfortunately, the scan does not show any dimensions and is of poor quality. I hope to have my camera working soon and an updated picture of the card posted here and in the gallery.





Now for the fun part! Here is the blog candy I am offering!


Here is how easy it is to enter for my random draw:
  • Be or become a member of Let’s Scrap which you can do by clicking here http://letsscrap.ning.com/ . It is free, easy and fast! Once you get there, I am sure you will love it!
  • Become a follower of my blog
  • Leave me a comment on this post telling me what your favorite thing is about Valentine’s Day

And if you would like a second chance in the draw:
  • Make a card from the sketch I have posted and upload it to the gallery at Let’s Scrap. Please tag it as 5-2-11, LEAP5
  • Leave a comment on this post with a link to your card on Let’s Scrap.

The hop ends at 11:59 pm Central Standard time February 29th, which you would be able to track using the clock on the main page of Let’s Scrap.

Thanks for visiting the Creativity Bug blog and have fun with the blog hop. Your next stop will be the talented Debby De Wilde @ http://drdewilde.blogspot.com/

If you get lost along the way or have joined the hop in the middle, Mindi Brown @ http://scrapchat-n-coffeetalk.blogspot.com/ is the beginning of the hop. You don’t want to miss any of the fun!

Super card. Valentine's Day? As I'm a widow and no 'male' prospects on the horizon, I am not expecting anything, BUT for those who do receive a card or gift, what a wonderful uplifting day!

Fave part of Valentines is snuggle with my DH ;) Your card is adorable!!
Thanks for hosting!

Moira said...

So cute.. I don't think your scans are horrible... I can see the dimension!

My favourite thing about Valentine's Day is that 10 years ago, this year, I had my very first date with my husband. We had met online and decided (after four days) that we needed to meet in person. We knew we would be married that very night, so here we are 10 years together and will be married 9 years in May.

Kay Wallace said...

Hi, Sue, first let me say that this sketch has been enhanced by your layering technique! Way to go. Next, my favorite part of Valentine's Day is *having* a valentine!

Michelle Looi said...

hi Sue, I have just become a follower of your blog and I am Sue Wheeler on LS. Valentine's Day is not widely celebrated here in Australia but i love seeing all the gorgeous cards!

Antje said...

Thanks for being a host to the bloghop otherwise it wouldn't be there and I would not have that inspiration and fun. As I will post a picture on letsscrap I am a member and joined your follower as no 169. My favorite about Valentine is to surprise persons I like because it is not very common in Germany to give gifts to other people than your loved one. I lived in the US and brought this to my little world here in Germany.
Greetings Antje
