Lily Pad is turning ONE!

 Can you believe that's it has been a year since Lily Pad Cards opened the pond?

Deborah and Vicky are doing an amazing job and today we are celebrating with a First Birthday blog hop.  You should be joining me from Vicky's blog.  If not, a master list is available at Lily Pad Cards.

There are three prize packages with a total retail value of over $300 on today's blog hop! These prizes will be awarded by random draw.  To be eligible, you need to “like” us on Facebook.  If you would like to improve your chances,  you can leave comments on the blogs participating in this hop (including the Lily Pad). For each comment, you get your name entered again (but only one comment per blog, please).

Supplies:  Shall we dance stamp - Lili of the Valley, pp - Daisy & Dandelion 
"Some Bunny Loves you" collection - docrafts, tuxedo black - 
memento, copics R81, RV02, 0, E43, V91, E50, RV23, E93, R000, 
white alpha numbers - papermania (coloured brown), buttons - 
PTI and stash, embroidery floss, pink washi tape, diamond stickles.

Above is my birthday card for Lily Pad - woohoo!  I kept the colouring very simple on this one, I let the patterned paper be the focal feature!.
I used the "Shall We Dance" stamp from Lili of the Valley which is actually a couple dancing but I masked off the groom/male dancer and just stamped the girl.  This inspiration wasn't mine but it was one of the first things that Jane Millard said when she saw the stamp at the Hobbycrafts Show last Saturday, so thanks Jane!

Perfect card for a birthday gal who's turning one!  Don't you think?
 Thanks so much for stopping by today and the next stop on the hop is the wonderful Patricia.

If you hit a bad link, you can always  go back to Lily Pad to view the master list of blog links. Please report any bad links to aris@inlinkz.com.

 The blog hop will be open for one week - that means that everyone can leave comments for a chance to win prizes until 12:00 p.m. EST on Sunday, April 8.
