Lawnscaping Blog Hop

Happy Friday! Welcome to the first Lawnscaping blog hop! When I found out that they were having a hop, I knew I had to sign up. Hopefully you got here via Danielle's blog- if not, you can always go back to Lawnscaping to start from the beginning.

The theme of the blog hop is holiday cards! I wish I had some of the awesome new Halloween stamps from Lawn Fawn, but since I don't I turned to my trusty winter holiday sets.

I wanted to make a card that you could give to someone during the holidays that is not centered around Christmas. I have a few friends who do not celebrate Christmas, and I always seem to struggle with making cards for them. I love that by using a rainbow of colors the card can be for any holiday.


I colored the present with colored pencils, and accented it with white gel pen.

Make sure to leave comments at all of the blogs because there will be fantastic prizes given to random commenters!

The next stop is Samantha. Have fun, and don't forget to stop by Lawnscaping to find out more about the prizes!

  62. Hello,
    When I design custom invitations, I offer to design custom postage for my clients to complete the look of their invitation package. The party starts when the guests open their invitations, so setting the tone of the party with the invitation is important. But even before the envelope is opened, the first impression the guest has of the invitation is what’s on the outside.
