This is a “circular blog hop” where the only beginning is wherever you start!! You will know you are at the end of your blog hop when you’ve come back to the blog you’ve started from! (It’s not a huge circle…so it should be easy to remember where you started.)

**To find out if you’ve won… you will be contacted by Pamela via e-mail (so be sure to leave it with your comment.) and you can also find out on Pamela’s blog after the blog hop ends on Mon, at 8:00 PM (EST).**

Now, to continue the circle, you will need to hop on over to the talented Shelly's Blog 
and keep going until you’ve come back to where you’ve started!

Thanks so much for playing along with us and we hope you have a great time! When you are all finished hopping, you can check

Both these cards are great. Love the patchwork/collage like look on the first card. You did a great job using the same stamp for the BC challenge and creating a different but wonderful card.

Love your use of the BC sketch. Fabulous techniques, love the stamping and color choices, but the flower you added pulls it all together -- one fabulous card!
