Welcome to the BLENDS (blog + friends) blog hop. 


If you are just joining in here is a list of all the participants:
Cindy (that's me)

We were asked to create a project based on one of Jessica's posts. Here is the card I based my card on:


This is the sketched she used by Unity KOM sketch challenge:


Here is my card:

patterned paper by Deja Views, embossing folder by Tim Holtz, sentiment sticker by SRM Stickers, ink by Colorbox and Memento, stamp by Stamp N Plus Scrap N, cardstock by Recollections.

For this hop I am offering a small candy prize to one lucky person that comments on this post from now until the hop ends. You must be a follower to my blog to be eligible to win. Here is a picture of my candy:



As for the hop, Jessica has many great sponsors and prizes to offer to some lucky people that leave a comment on each of the blog hop participants blogs.
First we have a new release by Whimsical design stamps.


Then from Julie K from A Little Bit of Bling and 3 Girl Jam she is offering a Valentine's ribbon bundle.


Jessica is offering 3 different grab bags of 16 Unity stamps in each. She decorated them ever so pretty.


Jessica is also offering 2 lucky hoppers one set (5 pins per set) of her handmade corsage pins:


And then she is offering a $10 gift certificate to Pink by Design.
