365 Cards Blog Hop!

Welcome to the FIRST EVER 365 Cards Blog Hop! Pam and the DT are hosting a Hop all week long! For your fist stop, visit the 365 Cards Blog, read the directions, then start the Hop! You should be coming to me from Pam's Blog. If not, go back and try again! If you get lost during the Hop, the 365 Cards Blog has all the DT blog links in the sidebar.

Now that you are here - I'll tell you 7 Random Facts about me:

1. I am 5' 9" tall in my sock feet.
2. I am left handed and proud of it.
3. I have a B.S. in electrical engineering, a second degree in English, and minor courses of study in computer science and industrial engineering. (I know! How did I wind up here?!)
4. I cannot carry a tune but I love to sing.
5. My mom said I could read by age 2. I believe her.
6. My hair used to be so long I could sit on the ends.
7. My first ever paying job was as a "go-for" for my electrician father.

Now that you know a bit of trivia about me, here is the 365 Cards Sketch for today:

Here is my card. I used my brand new American Crafts paper for this one. It's not my normal style, but it was so cute and fresh I had to buy it. Do you love those rubber boots?! I followed the sketch exactly again this week. Don't faint now!

The stamp is SU and I used my Nesties for the circles. The little flower is MOSD.

Now, on with the Hop! Make sure you visit 365 Cards to see what you can win and how to win it! Also, check back here tomorrow to see my Monday Challenge card! I will also have details tomorrow on how you can win a RAK from me! Plus, I may have some extra challenges for you this week...wait and see! I hope you have a fun week of Hopping!

Hop on over to Amy's Blog to see what she has in store for you! Make sure you leave a comment for everyone on the DT by 11:59pm EST on October 31st to be able to enter the random draw for the 365 Cards Prize!

  48. Isn't it kinda fun stepping out of the zone and using different papers/colors/images/etc?!? I'm still trying to figure out my style so it's wonderful to see what different people come up with. I saw your card this morning before I went shopping at the sale at Ben Franklin so I just had to pick up some of those papers!! Thanks for weekly inspirations and modeling of how to break, I mean, "bend" the rules ;) Aloha!

    PS thanks for all the wonderful comments on my blog! I'm really working at getting better at leaving comments for others to but my computers are giving me fits right now so I'm not real motivated. Anyway, enough whining...Mahalo (thank you!) ;)

    Lovely boots card!
    I personly learned to read at the age of 4 (my sister's blame... LOL), and went to to the public library at the age of 5...
