Julie's Blogoversary Blog Hop

Welcome to the 3rd Edition of "Julie's Blogoversary Blog Hop".  We're so glad you have joined us!  Julie has gathered together her friends and tons of sponsors to make this a GREAT event!


Here are our wonderful sponsors:
                                          
You'll be inspired by each stop of the hop.The theme, "Lucky to Call You Friend" will be evident in the projects of Julie and her friends. Many of the talented ladies have blog candy to give away on their blogs, so watch for that, and follow the individual rules on their blogs for how to win it.

Here is the complete hop list:





Ruth - http://ruthscraftyplace.blogspot.com  (You are here)
















This card uses a Technique Tuesday stamp from the Tree-mendous clear stamps collection and lots of wonderful UmWowStudio chipboard.  The shamrocks are DeeDee's shamrock confetti and the lucky sentiment is from UmWowStudio, as well.  Shamrocks were heat embossed with Zing (fluorescent green) and Stampendous (Pearlustre Emerald) embossing powders. The sentiment is from Unity Stamp's Hugs & Kitties Kit.  I replaced the "Happy" in the stamp with the "lucky" chipboard sentiment.


This card uses stamps and sentiment from Flourishes' Grab a Cup stamp set. The cup image was colored using copics with spica added to the flower centers.  The tea bag background is stamped using Versamark. The tag die (Stitched Duo 3) and sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh.

It's time for the next stop on the hop, which is Miwa's,  http://miwannascrap.blogspot.com/2015/03/julies-blogoversary-blog-hop-fwf-12_19.html.  Have fun, and thanks so much for participating!
