OCL Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hi all! Today OCL is releasing four brand new Valentine's sets and we're celebrating with a blog hop and giveaways! The set that I'm giving away is an oldie but a goodie. It's called Out for a Spin and it includes all kinds of sentiments that could be used for birthday cards, note cards to say hello, and Valentine's Day cards.



Want to try and win the set? All you have to do is leave a comment on this post no later than Sunday, November 21st at 3 a.m. I'll draw a name on Sunday and announce it here on my blog on Monday morning. Note: Be sure to be signed in when leaving a comment or give me your email address so I have some way to get in touch with you.



For my card today, I chose to make a birthday card because I can never have enough of those on hand. It's a 5" square card, the scalloped rectangle is up on foam tape, and I distressed the edges of the floral DP with my fingernail.

Here's a list of all the girls participating in the hop today. You can try to win a stamp set at EVERY stop (Yay!!!).
