A Lollipop Girl Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,
I am so excited!  I am a Lollipop Girl. Last week I was invited to be on By LORi Designs, design team. I just love her images and am trilled to be on this team of very talented ladies.
We are having a blog hop today so you can get to know all of the Lollipop girls and win some of Lori's images. Isn't that wonderful?

I am in Chicago and I don't have many supplies with me. I just brought a Cosmo Cricket (Material Girl) 6x6 packet of paper, tape, paper cutter, Viva Decor Pearl Pen, Score Buddy, Copic Markers and the most important a sheet of digi stamps that I printed off before I left home. This is a new image by Lori Boyd called Grandparents. You can get it at Lollipop and Sugar Sticks Store which is were you will fine all By LORi Designs 

Grandparents day was last Sunday so I decided to make  an anniversary card. I didn't bring any stamps with me and I could not get anyone in Chicago to print my (MacBook) sentiment.  I wrote it by hand.  I also wanted to add some bling which I forgot to bring. So I walked up and down Michigan Ave yesterday looking for something to use. I found these earrings and thought that was a lot of bling for $5. Look at what is on one earring? Have you every been to a Forever 21 store? Amazing place!
OK now for my card.
Not too bad for not having many supplies but I wish I could have stamped or printed the sentiment.  Lori's images are so wonderful they really make the card without a lot of extras needed.

Now hop to all the Lollipop Girls blogs and leave a comment. Then you will be in the running to win the new Grandparent Set, the Bride & Groom Set and ANY 5 other digis of your choice!!!


Start at Lollipop and Sugar Sticks and enjoy the your hop!

The Lollipop Girls:


Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping,

Super cute anniversary card. How creative of you to see card embellishments in jewelry. I bet you'll get lots of use from those $5 earrings.

Your card is FANTASTIC! I am going to Google that pearl pen you were talking about, I haven't heard of that before. I think I need one :)

Linda, you are AMAZING! What a great idea, to rob a cheapie pair of earrings for some cool little charms....genius! I wish I had known last week was Grandparents Day! Oh well, your card is as sweet as can be, you did a great job and Lori is a very smart cookie to choose you for the team!

There are some grammatical mistakes in your post, but otherwise I found it somewhat useful.

In my humble opinion, there's a lot of B.S. on this topic all over the internet. How do I know you are not just trying to sell something?
