House of Cards End of Term Blog Hop............

Hi everyone!  Can you believe we've are at the end of our fourth term here at 
House of Cards?  Unfortunately we are saying a fond farewell to some of our DT members, including me. I've had a fabulous 2 years on the team but have decided to step down to make way for someone else as life is throwing lots at me at the moment lol!!! To say goodbye and thank you, HoC are celebrating with a blog hop!  You should have arrived here from Monika 

Here is my take on the inspiration.............................

So, are you ready to get hopping?!  We've got some fabulous sponsors to share with you!  Make sure you leave a comment at each person's blog along the way because the prizes are hidden and we'll be doing random drawings from the blogs where they are hiding! :)  After you're done, make a creation to share with us here, too, for another chance to win!

The patterned papers on my card came from this sponsor................

Prize: Any three products of your choice!
MHKDesigns is a vintage digital stamp Etsy shop owned and operated by Mynnette Kitchen from On A Stampage.  She creates vintage stamp sets and digital paper packs for all your crafting needs.  Contact her with any requests you have at mhkdesigns.etsy@gmail.com!

Now get to hoppin'!  Your next stop is Pat!  Don't forget to link up a project with us after completing the hop for an extra chance to win a mystery prize from one of our fabulous sponsors, too!

Have fun.
