It's a Love Thing Friendship's Garden Blog Hop

Well, a big HELLO from the temporary Deeply Rooted house! We made the big move over the weekend, I started my new job this week, and I'm thoroughly exhausted! There are a few fixes and updates going on at the perminant house, so we're staying with family for a few more weeks until things are ready for us.
With that being said, I'm a bit sad to share with you that I don't have an entry for this week's Friendship's Garden blog hop. The other Garden Girls have done a great job with their examples, so I'm sure they won't steer you wrong! This week's challenge is a great one, so let's get you hopping!

Love is the theme, and your project must have at least 3 embellishments on your card! (Buttons, ribbon, lace, trim, bling, brads, die cuts, chipboard, etc.) As usual, you should make a project based on the theme and link it up to us. The usual rules apply, and we will choose the top 3 and winner of the gift certificate from Altered Angel via vote by the Garden Girls.

Now for the blog hop info ... Michelle at Designs on Cloud 9 was very generous and gave the Garden Girls a free file for us to work with, and if you win this blog hop, you could buy it for your very own with the $20 gift certificate to the Designs on Cloud 9 online shop!!!

Here are the rules, and they must follow this order:

First you must become a follower of this blog (if you haven't already). Leave us a comment saying you have done this.

Second, please go become a fan of Friendship's Garden on Facebook. Leave us a comment saying you have done this.

Next, go visit the Designs on Cloud 9 shop and pick out your favorite file and come back here and leave a comment telling us which file is your favorite!

Then you must go 'like' Designs on Cloud 9 on Facebook, then come back here and leave a separate comment that you've done that.

Next you must visit each of the Garden Girls blogs and leave a comment. Some of the Garden Girls are offering their own giveaway, so leaving a comment there gives you an extra chance to win a prize! Come back here and tell us that you have left a comment for all of the Garden Girls.
That gives you five (5) chances to win the gift certificate from Designs on Cloud 9!!! If you only do one, you get one chance, if you do 3 you get 3 chances, and so on. The winner for the $20 Designs on Cloud 9 gift certificate will by chosen via a random number generator from the comments received on this blog.
