I love blog hops! The energy that swirls around this annual event is incredible! I have to admit that the response really took me by surprise last year – in a huge and wonderful way!
This weekend you’ll have the opportunity to hippety-hop through some amazing creativity. The artists have all worked hard to bring you their best and some are even awarding it as blog candy. COOL BEANS!
I’ll be cruising through the blogs each day and selecting at least one winner per day from the comments to receive an extra special handmade gift from one of our designers. If you want to win here’s a tip – leave a comment that is thoughtful and personal in some way. ;0)
But wait there’s more!
In ADDITION to the prize drawings EVERY SINGLE order placed on the PWA website over the weekend (Saturday and Sunday) will receive a piece of FREE blog candy created by one of our design team members! WOWEE!! Just look through our archives to see what you might receive! Ü
Let’s kick this thing off!
PWA designer Jean Sunderman brings some western influenced artwork to the party in honor of the Pennywise Arts annual crafting retreat that is taking place the end of this month in Cle Elum, Washington.
Jean’s first card has a handsome fellow on the cover with three silver micro beaded stars for embellishment. Inside the card says “Save a horse, ride a cowboy” oh my! ;0)
I love Jean’s atc “I always get my man”. It’s a sweet little shaker card that used one of the free PWA templates:
Also from our shaker card files, Jean’s finale is a sassy lassie who’s good with a rope!
Thanks for stopping by Pardner! Now it’s time to mosey on over to my friend Jennifer’s blog. She’s bursting with creativity and so excited to share with ya’ll! I heard tell she may be giving away some goodies too! Ü
Oh, and Yey! If you’re interested in joining up with a fun group of wild women at the PWA retreat there are still a few spots left and we’d love to have ya!
Thank you for the wonderful inspiration for the retreat "roundup", Jean!ReplyDelete

I don't know why I rarely use my micro beads, but after seeing these creations, I have the inspiration I needed to get them out & play. Love the western themed cards! I don't usually associate glitz with this style, but the cards are proof they work together marvellously!ReplyDelete
awesome cards! love the western theme.ReplyDelete

Jean did a wonderful job w/ the round-up theme. I like the cowboy card. One of my fav songs. "Save a horse ride a cowboy" LOL Hugs TheresaReplyDelete

The cowboy/gal themes are great! I love the old West. Trying hard to blog hop using my phone this weekend, so don't mind my misspellings ...and grammer mishaps. LoLReplyDelete
I use my microbeads on almost everything, kind of like glitter, but never even thought about making stars with them!!!ReplyDelete
What great cards I'm just starting out making cards and yours are just great. I want to try to make a shaker card for my grandson he likes anything that moves.ReplyDelete
this is so cool. i rarely see cards with a western theme that are appropriate for grown ups. off to the rest of the roundup.ReplyDelete
I love the cowgirl theme and can't wait for the retreat. Just 12 more days and we will be with some of the beadie buddies for a great weekend of fun, crafts and food. Yippee!!!!ReplyDelete
