Sweet Summertime Blog Hop

Looking for a bit of respite from the summer heat? Then take a meander along Christian Paper Crafts Sweet Summertime Blog Hop.

Each month Christian Paper Crafts offers several prizes for blog hop participants.  For members of Christian Paper Crafts, that includes a crafty prize generously donated by a fabulous company.  This month, Pink Persimmon has donated the versatile set Hello Vintage Girl for our member prize. There are also prizes for non-members! In order to be eligible for your prizes, you must have the Christian Paper Craft Blog Hop Badge on your sidebar.

To join in on our blog hop, you just need to make a NEW card or project that goes along with our theme ("Sweet Summertime") and add the direct link to your blog post about it to the link collection at the Christian Paper Crafts Blog (where you'll find all of the rules and the cool prizes).  The collection is only open from Wednesday, June 22 at 8:00 AM EST through Friday, May 24 at 11:59 PM EST. You may add your link at any time during that time.

The hop has some amazing summertime inspiration. . .head on over to the CPC Blog and see for yourself! The inspiration for my card came from a picture of a wedding cake in a CD album from Angela Coles that is in the June Sweet Summertime Design Team Delights Gallery.
