Summer's End Blog Hop, CardMaker's Card Swaps Crop


WELCOME!
You are on the CardSwaps Summer's End Blog Hop!

The theme of our crop and blog hop is Summer's End. We have hostesses that are going to help you spell out SUMMER'S END in products, techniques, embellishments, or anyway they can. You should have arrived from Ana's blog where I know she inspired you with her awesome creation featuring the letter "E". I'm next with the letter "R". I started out with coloring an image of a "R"abbit eating "R"ed apples. Used some "R"ed cardstock followed with some "R"ed plaid "R"ibbon and "R"ed brads for embellishments and I had a card with lots of "R"s going on!

When I think of Summer ending and Fall beginning I always think of picking apples, apple pies and apple dumplings. I thought this image was perfect for this memory and I hope it inspired you to start thinking of making your projects for the Fall season. Need some more inspiration? Then hop along to the next letter "S" which is Tina's blog. I know she has something special to help inspire you. When you are done hopping along I hope you will join us over at the forum for more fun, games, challenges, and.... PRIZES!! The crop is going on from August 10-13, 2011 and you have until 11:59PM CST on August 16, 2011 to get your projects uploaded.

In case you get lost along the way, here is a list of all the blog hop hostesses. Golda at the end of the hop will guide you with the link to the forum for the crop! Hope to see you there and don't forget to leave some love for our blog hop hostesses by leaving them a comment.

Thanks for hopping by and see you at the crop!
