Reminisce Blog Hop

Welcome to the Very First Reminisce Blog Hop! If you've just arrived from Tami Sander's blog you are in the right place. If not, I'm glad you found us today! You can visit the Reminisce blog for the complete list of details and blogs (they are also listed below) that are participating and play along. We have some fantastic prizes you can win too! The blog hop starts today, March 9th, and runs through Midnight CST on Sunday, March 13th. To have a chance to win a prize, just leave a comment at each stop and then a comment on the Reminisce blog telling us about your blog hop experience. (Please be sure to use exactly the same name in each comment). Then return to the Reminisce blog on Tuesday, March 15th and find out if you've won!

Here's what I created to share with you: St. Patrick's Day Cards...I know I am only 25% Irish, but on St. Patrick's Day I feel like I am 100% and I enjoy sending cards to my Irish friends :) I've made a few St. Patty's Day cards to share with you using the newest Irish paper line from Reminisce called Celtic Pride. It offers lots of opportunities for diversity and I love their border stickers too!

All three of the cards in this collection use Celtic Knot, Celtic Harp, and Celtic Crossing double sided papers as well as the 12x12 border stickers (I cut them down to use on cards).

Think green thoughts!
