House of Cards June Blog Hop!!

This is a very bittersweet moment. House of Cards was the first DT I was asked to be on. Mynn gave me my start. Today, HOC is the last team I am stepping down from. As I have said in previous posts, school and work has just gotten to crazy. So if I post sporadically, you will know why.

As usual our blog hop at HOC is full of fun, lots of inspiration, creativity and PRIZES!!

This hop will run FROM JUNE 1ST AT 6:00 AM CST THROUGH JUNE 15TH AT NOON CST,  ANY CARD STYLE is welcome and we've got a gorgeous photo inspiration for your crafting enjoyment!

So, get ready and let's get hopping?!  Oh wait, hold the horses!! Before we get hoppin',  we have some fabulous sponsors to share with you!  Make sure you leave a comment at each person's blog along the way because the prizes are hidden and we'll be doing random drawings from the blogs where they are hiding! :)  After you're done, make a creation to share with us here, too, for another chance to win!


Here are all of our fabulous sponsors.
Our team will be using a variety of products
from these amazing companies!

I love the card, the colours, the layout and all the uplifting sentiments! Also completely understand about life getting in the way of crafting, I'm very much in the same situation and it's hard. But it's always possible of finding a balance, a little bit of everything goes a long way!!

Sounds like we're in the same boat Sue. I have also stayed with the House of Cards DT as long as I possibly could keep up with it because we always have such a great group. I'm really going to miss everyone. Hope to see you around, and best of luck! Lovely many fun elements! What a great stamp set.
