Fiskateer Weekend Blog Hop - Plus Blog Candy (Day 30)

Welcome fellow Fiskateers!


Welcome to the Fiskateers Spring Blog Hop. You should have come from Kelly #6446!
If you are hopping into the middle of our hop and you are a Fiskateer, please start here www.fiskateers.com.
If you are thinking a “Fiskawhat?”, you should know that Fiskateers (www.fiskateers.com) is an online community of craftiness (paper crafts, sewing, gardening, etc.) all based around our love and appreciation of Fiskars (think orange-handled scissors to start). There is a blog, gallery, and message board led by four lovely Lead Fiskateers who along with the other Fiskateers are fabulous at getting creativity flowing via chats, challenges, on-line crops, and interviews with other crafty celebrities. If you would like to join in the inspiration of Fiskateers, or would like to learn more, you can CHECK OUT THE SITE. Then, join in the fun!!
We’ll be hopping all weekend , March 24th and 25th to welcome spring! The blog hop officially ends on Sunday March 25th at 11pm CST. Don't forget some Fiskateers are offering sur-prizes… So be sure to read all directions carefully to participate.

Now let's go ahead and have some fiska fun!



The hop order is as follows:


Kelly #6446 (Patty #2262)

Jennifer Ashley #6361 (You are here)















Courtney #8459 (Shelley #8456)










What is a hop without a little candy incentive?
In celebration of this hop and completion of my goal to make 30 cards in 30 days, one random hopper who comments on this post and follows my blog will win some fun Fiskars treats and the stamp set of their choice from Shabby Chic Stamp Co. Be sure to identify which stamp set you would like in your comment.

For my project, I used quite a few Fiskars' goodies. After all orange is the best and you can never have too many tools! I'm always searching for more!!

But right now my obsession is border punches.





Don't forget to head on over to Judy #5798 next!

Happy Hopping!!!
