Blends Join Hands Blog Hop!

** For the Show Me Your Craft Room Blog Hop click HERE

Hi Everyone!

Happy Blog-a-versary to my sweet Blend (blogger friend) Jessica of Jessica's Craft Shaque!
Jessica is hosting a super awesome blog hop today to celebrate and I am honored that she asked me to be a part of her special day.
There are fabulous prizes to be won throughout the hop- and- Jessica has some awesome sponsors to sweeten the pot!!  
So start at the beginning so you don't miss a single thing!

Jessica asked all of us to go through her blog and find a project that she has done that inspired us.  
That was easy for me!
Jessica was a Guest Designer for my other blog, 3 Girl JAM, (see that post HERE) and the project she did, totally inspired me.

She used Goblin Green Ribbon from the Spooky Bundle (for Halloween) on a Christmas card!  
Heck- I make the ribbon and didn't even think to do that! 
Jessica is so creative that way!  And that is only one reason why I think she is awesome!  She always has a kind word to say to everyone- and you can tell that she is honestly sincere in what she says and does.
Jessica- we would so totally be great friends in "real life"-- so if you're ever in Iowa, you need to look me up.  :0)

Here is the card I made for Jessica.

Girl- I just want to give you a big hug because you're so sweet!

I have a little blog candy in honor of Jessica's creative mind.
Two random people that comment below will each win a "Spooky Bundle" of 3 Girl JAM Hand Dyed Crinkle Ribbon!
