Julie's 3rd Blogoversary Blog Hop! It's Here!


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:

Julie  -- you are HERE
Amy Hurley-Purdie  - go HERE next!
Paula  
Kary 
Karen  
Ema  
Lucy 
Beth  
Maria  
Karen  
 Since our theme for this hop is "Lucky to Call You Friend", and some of my best friends are 4-legged, here's what I made for the hop:
The image and sentiment are from Unity Stamp Company/Phyllis Harris (Unity is one of the sponsors of this hop).  The sentiment can be found here, the image can be found here. Some of my favorite images to color are Phyllis Harris.  This one is colored with Copic markers. Designer papers and button on this card are Basic Grey PB & J 12x12.  The image was cut out with a Spellbinder die. The card base is a cutting file from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons.  The crinkle ribbon on this card is from 3 Girl JAM (one of our sponsors). The twine is from Timeless Twine -- another sponsor.
Along with all the prizes listed below from our sponsors, I have a few of my own I've been collecting.  To win these prizes, please leave a comment on this blog.  I'd also love it if you'd 'like' my Facebook page, follow me on Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter.
I have the following prizes -- a grab bag of Unity stamps
a Close To My Heart Stamp Set
2 Embossing Folders
Large Box of Blog Candy (6x6 paper pad, ribbon, embellishments, bling, etc)

Do you want to know about the prizes, and how to win them?  Leave a comment on Julie's blog, with your email address, so she can send you the free digi paper that EVERYONE gets!  Leave a comment on each hop along the way.  Prizes will be hidden along the hop.  

Here are the prizes available:
