Cocoa Daisy Blog Hop

I have some fun news to share today. My friend, Christine Drumheller - owner of Cocoa Daisy kit club and my former Memory Makers Master's teammate- so kindly asked me to be a part of their site reveal blog hop. I'm really excited for them! Here is what Christine has to say about CD:

"Cocoa Daisy has done some remodeling and updating, making our home a place you want to be. Drop in and see how our scrapbook home is your scrapbook home too.


To help celebrate, we are doing a blog hop and giveaway. Just leave a comment to be entered to win a $10.00 Cocoa Daisy Coupon.

The celebration doesn't end there, we're also offering a couple of promotions for new subscribers:

1.Sign up for a 6 month kit subscription and you will receive 20% off your first month's kit.


2. Sign up for a 6 month kit AND a 6 month stamp subscription and you will get 20% off your first month's kit and stamps PLUS an exclusive Cocoa Daisy Tote bag."


How fun is that? Cocoa Daisy's kits are so awesome! They are always filled with the latest and greatest. And they have the cutest stamps. You can even subcribe and get the stamps on their own. How cool is that?

So, to celebrate we were each asked to create a card sketch. Now, I stink at making sketches. Some people go all techno and I have no clue how to do that. So, you get this lovely sketch done with a Sharpie and some cardstock.

 Now, I CAN make cards. So here is the card I made from the sketch.  I used Crate's Paper Heart collection on here. The sticker and chipboard heart are also Crate.


Now for the fun part - a giveaway! I have a $10 Coupon to Cocoa Daisy up for grabs. All you have to do is lave a comment by 8pm on Sunday to be entered.
