Caardvarks Fisrt Ever Blog Hop.....

Welcome to Caardvarks (you may wish to start there) FIRST ever Blog Hop!! We are excited to show you how we used products sponsored by Core'dinations. Core'dinations is a very unique cardstock. You can do so many interesting techniques with it. Be sure to check out Core'dinations blog for more unique ideas!!

Here's what you need to do......
"Follow" or subscribe to Caardvarks as well as MY blog and Core'dinations' blog and subscribe to their newsletter-- Visit each DT member's blog and leave a comment on the Blog Hop posts, each day-- Return to Caardvarks to comment they've completed the hop each day-- You will then be entered in a drawing to win a Super Assortment Package of Core'dinations product (retail value $68.00)-- One prize package will be given away for each day.

The card I created for today is featuring Core'dinations cardstock from the WhiteWash collection. I ran the cardstock through the Cuttlebug then sanded it lightly so the "coordinating" color is exposed. The photo doesn't do this cardstock justice. But the colors really pop out at you IRL!

Now hop over to the very talented lady MissTanis to see what she has created.
