Let's Scrap Blog Hop

Hello, my friends, and welcome to stop 30 in the


Are you a bit tired after so much hopping? Don't be! There's still so much fun to have! If you came here from Sue Down @  http://4scrappitite.blogspot.com/ ,    then you are in the right place! If you did not, stop number one, Mindi Brown @ http://scrapchat-n-coffeetalk.blogspot.com/ has the hop order to help you find your way.

You know I've been a member of Let's Scrap for a very long time, and I love the friendly and warm atmosphere in the community as much as I love the inspiration I get from their sketches, so I was thrilled when the opportunity to host a stop in this HUGE blog hop came up. This is the sketch I am showcasing for the hop:


I love this sketch and I've used it often so I wanted to create a card using the sketch that was a bit different from the other ones I've made, and going on with my current gesso love, I made a gesso background for it!!!! Here is my card:


And here is the prize you can win by playing along:


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. 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 telling me you've done both. Please leave your e-mail or blog address so I can contact you if you win.

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 such 5-18-11, LEAP30. Please note there is no spaces and that LEAP is all capitals.

*Leave a comment 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 and taking the time to read this LOOOONG post. Your next stop will be the talented Rachelle Seierlein @ http://crafti.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!

WOW! You're in Trinidad and Tobago? I hope it is as cool as it sounds there! Your card is very original...I love it! I am a follower & have been on Let's Scrap for about a month or so. If I am the lucky winner...you can reach me at Eniko's Playhouse (blog) or I'm host #46...contacting winners on Let's Scrap is probably the easiest.

Betty Anne said...

Thanks so much for hosting the Let's Scrap Blog Hop. I love the card you made, the gesso makes such a cool background and the spritz of color you added to it is just perfect. I am loving all the things you have shown lately using gesso, I bought some of it but had no idea what I was to do with it. LOL
