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)!!

Okay - you really got me with the dictionary page with Ireland - that made me a little misty!!!
WV: nooffi - you make me feel nooffi and that's why you are my Bwahahahaha-friend-forever!
What a cute idea, passing the card to everyone. Can't wait to see the finished card. Have a great day. Hugs n' Stuff, Lynne
This is the most original idea ever - and I am only on stop #2! Can't wait to see Fred all done! You girls rock!
What a nice tribute to a friend, and her mom. The Irish script is perfect.
This is so much fun. I had to leave a comment before I traveled to the next site but now I am off t have fun......
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.
OK, second attempt at leaving a comment about how great the progressive card idea is and how lucky Sue is to have you all as friends...
I just love the progressive card idea! Your addition of the Irish dictionary paper is a very personal touch.
Love your blog!!
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.

The group card is such a wonderful idea!! And leaving a comment to see if it's difficult... :-)
Just found your blog via Lydia and I'm liking what I see! I'm also really enjoying the progressive card. What a sweet way to celebrate a life and ease a friend's grief. Thanks for sharing and for the chance to win!
I'm thinking this is a great idea!
I started in the middle(through a blog I follow), so went back and started at the beginning!
I love that you found a dictionary page with "Irish" on it. That's the BEST!! I'm sure that she noticed that and it touched her deeply. xoxo
This is beyond the best idea ever! I am looking forward to seeing what becomes of this card!
I nearly spewed my coffee about your BFF...hahahaa...I know you are going to have a big GUFFAW laugh when we meet!
Thank you so much...love the Irish definitions :-)
Great card hop idea! Looking forward to the next stop.

Yep, that page with the Ireland reference is a cool
