2nd Annual "Unofficial" Crop Chocolate Blog Hop

Welcome to the 2nd annual "Unofficial" Crop Chocolate Blog Hop, if you just found this start here
 and work your way though.  For this blog hop our theme was Bountiful Borders, there are some nice prizes so please make sure you leave a comment on all the blogs in to be eligible to win.  In addition to the blog hop prize if you leave a comment on my blog and become a follower I will draw a winner for some blog candy of my own on March 22nd.  Please note that due to high shipping costs my blog candy is open to US and Canadian Residents.

Here is my project for the hop, I have been making so many thank you cards lately buts its because I need them.  The flower is called a Dhalia fold flower and I made it with scallop circles and MME Lush paper (this has to be one of my favorite lines, its very versatile).  Your next stop on the hop is Kathy good luck !

  2. Beautiful flower! I've seen that several times these past couple of weeks (I think that means I need to make one too!). The Lush paper is just fantastic. And your punched border is so pretty!

  3. I love the flower. I, too, have seen flowers like this in the past few weeks using a die cut. But it looks so much nicer the way you did yours. And I love the colors you used . . . so soft and pretty. Great job!!!
