Lily Pad Cards Birthday Celebration Blog Hop


Welcome to the Lily Pad Cards’  First Birthday blog hop! You should be joining us from one of my favorite designers;  Jane’s blog;  Plain Jane.

 Happy Birthday Fred - You Rock!!!




There are three prize packages with a total retail value of over $300! These prizes will be awarded by random draw. To be eligible, you need to “like” us on Facebook;   LINK.
If you would like to better 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).


For my card I used Lawn Fawn Stamps. Lawn Fawn and Cosmo Cricket patterned papers.
Also there's a little giveaway on my blog -all you have to do is suggest a radio talk show  or podcast that you enjoy listening to, here in the comment section and you will automatically be entered into the random drawing 9th of April.(you see the prize on the sidebar) and you don't have to be a follower. I just need the help because I recently bought a squeezebox (internet radio) and can now listen to almost every program/ channel around the world!!! I enjoy shows like Think, A way with words, Tell me more, All things Considered, Manic Mommies etc, but want something new to listen to too. If you know of a program/podcast you think my students (12-15 year-olds) would enjoy I'd be super grateful if you let me know!

I'm entering this card for the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
Thanks for stopping by! The next stop on the hop is Heather Doran’s blog .
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.
Have a great day and a great Hop, big hugs, Karin
p.s. You have till 8th of april to complete the hop - good luck!!

  31. love your design, and the little flowers placed around the frog! I actually don't know the names of any radio talk shows! That's so bad I guess! I do listen to Pandora Radio online though. Right now I'm listening to the "relaxing" station and I'm really enjoying it. 12-15 yo probably will think it's dumb though!

  45. Such a fun hoppy card!

    And if I listened to radio, I don't listen to most talk shows, only at night if I need to keep awake on a long drive - I drove for so long without a radio in the car, that I prefer the quiet now. But definitely NOT Rush Limbaugh...

    As far as a radio shows go, I listen to Dennis Prager. (I'm not political or religious.) I like that he talks about taking responsibility for your own happiness and how to find your happiness in life. It's a great reminder to me to be happy with what I have and enjoy it.
