The card that went around the world....BLOG HOP!!

Well....not quite around the world....more like around the Northern Hemisphere.  Literally...as in all over the US AND Canada....BOOYA!!!

I know you're confused....So, my blog is just one stop among many on our BLOG HOP for our Sweet Sue....and it all begins with Lydia who will explain it all on her blog which is also Stop Number ONE....so if you started on my blog, back up one to Lydia and see how this began....then come back here and see how our Progressive Card for our wonderful friend Sue made its way across the globe...errrr....Northern Hemisphere.

Here was my contribution to our Progressive Card...I added the dictionary page that included "Ireland"...since Sue is Irish....and was actually celebrating her mother's life in Ireland while we were making this card for her.



In celebration of Sue FINALLY opening her mail (LOVE YOU SUE!!!) I'm giving away BLOG CANDY!!! SQUEEEE!!! This is major for me...first time for a giveaway! So here's a little picture of just SOME of the goodies I'm giving away....stamp sets, Sizzix dies, ribbon, a carryall...and I'll throwing in some ink and paper and BLING (which isn't pictured)!! SQUEEE!!! 


How to win? Leave some comment love here before Sunday, May 8th at 9 pm CST and I'll randomly draw a winner! SQUEEE!!!

Here are the rest of my friends (the majority of I know through Twitter) I who participated in this awesome idea of our Progressive Card for Sue:

1.  Lydia (understandblue, my BFF (Bwahahaha-Friend-Forever!) she has the backstory...be sure to start at her blog first), Texas

I like the added text layer! I'm off to see what Mary Dawn has added to Fred :)

You ladies are not only fun, but are amazing friends as well. You are fortunate to have each other...in good times and bad. I'm sure Sue will "feel your love" when she opens FRED.

Trying to leave a comment shouldn't be so frazzling. Love your blog Dana!!

What a marvellous idea. Sue will love it. I met Sue about 8 years ago when she so graciously drove me about Vancouver visiting stamp shops. My DH was in the hospital. We weathered torrential rains and power outages so no traffic lights. She is a great city driver. And a wonderful person to be around.
Thank you for offering such great blog candy.
