House of Cards May Blog Hop

Hi everyone! It's time for an end of the term blog hop over at House of Cards and we have a super fun challenge AND tons of great prize opportunities for those of you who join in the fun!!! :) You should have arrived here from Tammy's blog. If you haven't, please start all the way back at the House of Cards hop post and follow the list found in the body of the hop post!

Here's our photo inspiration for this blog hop. What an interesting picture!

What a great amount of prizes there are there! All you have to do is join in the fun and use one of our card making styles along with the inspiration photo for your card. 

Here's my card using Honey 2 from Stitchy Bear - isn't she adorable and holding the bunch of daisies made her more perfect for this blog hop!


I focussed on the daisies in the picture for my card along with using some of the colours - yellow, blue, green and white although I did use more yellow than anything else. Must have needed a summery feel to my card.
