You are on the CardSwaps World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Lori's blog
She made very cute card!

Don't forget, if you comment on every blog by midnight CST, October 3, 2010, you will be entered in to a drawing for prizes. The full list of prizes are on Lora's blog here:
There is a mini crop going on at CardSwaps and you are invited to play. Each member on the blog hop received a challenge in advance to showcase and entice you to participate!
The challenge from the mini crop I am showcasing is:

Monochrome Challenge:
Create a card (the means one color). with no more than 2 layers of paper. Embellishments must be the same color as well.

Here is what I came up with:

For this card I used:
Blue cardstock (Paperline) 
Basic light blue patterned papers (Colorit) 
Paper flower
Distress embossing folder


I started cardmaking about 1 year ago. I often looked through Cardmakermagazine site and asked Angelina about swaps and challenges. Then I decided to join. I have made so many friends through sharing card, designs and ideas.

You have until midnight, CST, October 3, 2010, to post your comment on each blog on the hop (that includes mine, please!). Everyone that comments on each blog will be entered in to the drawings for blog hop prizes. In addition, if you want to participate in the challenges for the mini crop at Card Swaps, go check it out after the blog hop and upload your completed project by midnight CST, October 3, 2010. There are prizes to win there, too! I hope you complete the challenge I showcased and I can?t wait to see what you come up with!
