Mardi Gras Blog Hop



Welcome to the "Mardi Gras" Blog Hop!  

It's Carnival Time here in the Big Easy a/k/a New Orleans! And we are celebrating with our own parade!  A parade of paper crafts!  

We're so happy you could join us today!  


You should have arrived from MICHELE'S Blog.  If you arrived here via your dashboard or just happened by, please go to Nana's Scrap Spot to start at the beginning, we wouldn't want you to miss any of the fun.

In addition to seeing a lot of awesome creations, there is some blog candy available too.  Miranda be giving away a Michael’s gift card.  To be eligible for the blog candy, you are required to visit each stop in the hop and leave a comment!  The winner will be announced Friday on Miranda's blog! 


This is my take on a Mardi Gras card.  I used all traditional Mardi Gras Colors.  My butterfly is actually a butterfly mask I made.  If you look closely, you'll see the eye holes.  My two masks in the corners are actually chip board that I glittered and added feathers to.  I didn't have a Mardi Gras stamp so I hand wrote Happy Mardi Gras! 


I have some surprise blog candy to be given away today all you have to do is become a follower of my blog and leave me a comment telling me so with a way to contact you.  I'll be announcing the winner next week on my blog in my regular post.

Next on the hop is KATHY!

Should you get lost along the way, here is the entire line up:
