Caard Hop: Day 1


Hello, hoppers! Thanks for joining us for our blog hop with Caardvarks & Core'dinations! We have three days of fun planned. There are lots of cards to share and of course prizes! Participants will 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!

Here's my first card featuring Core'dinations White Wash. I chose a sheet of tan cardstock with their subtle White Wash finish over the top. I embossed with a cool shell and text Cuttlebug embossing folder and sanded away the white from the raised areas. Voila! Instant beachy chic. Be sure to check back during the next two days for more Core'dinations fun!

If you have landed on my blog from somewhere else, go back to the beginning and read up on all the rules and details. Here's the list of 'Varks DT and where you are in the hop:
You are here --> Jolene

Be sure to check out the uber talented Daniela Dobson and her Core'dinations project to keep on hoppin'. See you tomorrow for a sneak peak of the RAK I'm giving away, too!
