*A Muse Anniversary Blog Hop*

Welcome to A Muse's 9th Anniversary Blog Hop! I'm so glad you stopped by! The Blog Hop began back at the A Muse Blog, so be sure to go there to get started. If you have a problem with any links along the way, you can always hop back to the A Muse Blog for a complete list of direct links to all the participants. If you started at the beginning and have followed your way here, you should have come from Anna Wight's blog.

For those of us who *love* collage style cards, the new Everything's Rosy release is a dream come true! I couldn't resist creating a collage-style accordion card. No sanding on this one. Sorry to disappoint! ;) I replaced my usual sanding with some ink to the edges just to make it look a little aged and worn. Now for the fun stuff!
There's a giveaway on each individual blog along the hop, in addition to a grand prize! Be sure to leave a comment on this blog post for a chance to win two of my favorite new Everything's Rosy stamps, Queen Anne's Lace and the Hello sentiment you see on my shabby accordion-style card. One winner will be chosen at random. The grand prize winner will be chosen randomly from all the comments left on all the blogs participating in the hop, so the more you comment, the more chances you have to win! Winners will be announced Monday, May 10th on the A Muse Blog.

My fellow Muse, Elena, is the next stop, so be sure to hop on over to her blog to see what crafty goodness she has whipped up for you and for another chance to win some amazing new Everything's Rosy stamps!
