Shop Pumpkin Spice Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Shop Pumpkin Spice Blog Hop!!! You should have gotten here from my lovely friend June's blog! If not, start at the beginning HERE at the Shop Pumpkin Spice Blog!

I made this card for my brother (technically my brother-in-law). His name is Peter and his birthday is on the 19th! I hope he likes it! :) Now I just have to figure out what to get him for his birthday! :)

I made this whole thing using the March Kit! Pick yours up before it is gone!  

The THEME this month is "boy crazy" and a challenge: make a card, layout, altered item that represents "boy crazy". It can be boyfriend, husband, son, etc. Have fun with it! Use at least one circle, twine, and at least one button.

The challenge will run for the whole month. Participants must comment on all of our blogs during the hop AND participate in the challenge if they want to win the prize: April's KIT!!! Buy the March Kit from SPS and participate in the challenge in order to win April's kit! Using the March kit is not necessary to enter the challenge, but if you use it you will get a double entry into the drawing! We'll announce the winner on the SPS blog during the hop the following month.

Love the card. I like the way you wrapped the twine around the letter and the ric rac at the top of the banner. Did you emboss the the blue background or did the paper come that way? Your brother-in-law will love it.
