A Special EAD Blog Hop for Emma


Today is a very cool day!  The amazing Amy Tsuruta asked me if I would like to participate in a very special blog hop that she is hosting along with a bunch of other EAD Designs fans!  EAD Designs is a company that created vinyl stickers and rub-ons, but unfortunately the company closed their doors over a year ago.  (unfortunately for sure - Amy sent me a few of their stickers to play with for this hop and they are AWESOME!).  Even though the company is gone, these ladies continue to inspire each other to use their fun goodies.

What all of our projects will have in common is that we are all using EAD goodies. 
And our challenge is:

Not only was I honoured that Amy would ask me (and said YES right away!), but I was also touched by the reason behind this hop.  All of our cards from today's hop will be going to a special girl named Emma.

Here's my card for Emma:

Isn't that owl adorable?!  Both she and the "cutie" sentiment are from EAD.  I put the owl on some Bazzill textured paper, and loved the grid look that it created on the owl.  Seriously, these stickers were SO much fun to play with!  Hope Emma likes it!

I also wanted to make a card for Addison:

That little bird, also EAD!  SO sweet!

And guess what?!  There is a surprise blog candy!  The more you leave comments on the blogs that are participating, the more chances you have to win!

Want another chance for a prize?!  Make a kid friendly card for Emma!  We'd love for you to join in the card drive!  Make a card for Emma, send it to Kelly and link up over on Amy's blog!

Commenting/Card link up open until Monday, March 24th at 11:59 pm pacific
Winners posted on Amy's blog on Monday, March 31st.

Have fun hoppin'!
