House of Cards June Blog Hop!

It's hop time again at the House of Cards and we have lots of inspiration to share along the way.  

For my card I used a stamp set generously provided by one of our sponsors, Reverse Confetti.  I have to admit I was a bit stumped on how to use these cute apples with the inspiration pic.  (ha ha--get it?  stumped).  Didn't take me long tho since there is so much to draw from in the pic.  I chose gold, bright colors and round shapes.

So, are you ready to get hopping?!  Make sure you leave a comment at each person's blog along the way because the prizes are hidden and we'll be doing random drawings from the blogs where they are hiding! :) After you're done, make a creation to share with us here, too, for another chance to win!

Also, this blog hop is also a DT call!!!!   We're looking for crafters comfortable in any card making style and it might just be YOU!  Check out the House of Cards for all the deets.
