Winter Warm Up Blog Hop

There is an awesome crop going on over at CardSwaps this week.  Challenges and games will be posted February 8-11, 2012 and you have until February 14, 2012 to get your projects posted to the appropriate thread.  If you haven’t participated before, don’t worry!  There are many members that will be around to offer support and encouragement.  You can find out all you need to know in the forum.  So… AFTER the hop… you will be taken to the crop and I do hope you join in.  There is a prize on the line for blog hoppers and you are getting closer to the end, so keep on hopping.

The blog hop “theme” goes with the crop title of “Winter Warm Up”.  The only requirement was that the completed item had to make you smile and bring some warm, fuzzy feelings to the cold, cold Winter months.  If you live in an area where your winter doesn’t get cold…. well… enjoy your warmth and everyone’s warm ideas.

I live in Phoenix, AZ, so it doesn’t get really cold here during winter.  (I was born and raised here, so our winter is cold to me.)  However, when I think of ways to warm up in winter, I think of getting out and exercising.  My wonderful husband and I, as well as our kids, love to play tennis, so that is one way we warm up.

So… the game for hoppers… You will be unscrambling a word once you will collect a letter at each blog you visit.  We hostesses can play along, because we don’t know any of the letters but our own.  Once you collect ALL the letters, Ana, our last hostess in the blog hop will direct you to the thread in the forum where you can find all the details you need to enter the drawing.  All hoppers collecting all the letters, unscrambling the word or phrase, entering the game by following the directions in the forum, and leaving feedback on EVERY blog they visit WILL be entered into a random drawing held on February 15, 2012.  ONE lucky hopper will have their name drawn and will win a prize!!  So, make sure you visit every blog and find the letters. Your only hints are… it’s a phrase and it’s a way paper crafters warm up.

OK… You should have arrived here from Jane’s.  If not, start at the beginning and collect your letters.  Then collect my letter and hop on, friend.

My letter is… O

In case you get lost, here is the list of blogs:

The next stop on your hop today is Angelina’s blog.  Check out her amazing project, then keep on hopping!

Thanks for spending some time with me today!  Enjoy the hop and then the crop!

    1. Thanks Ellie. Sorry it’s not warmer where you are, but it is bound to warm up soon! Hey, you’ll be warming up in our Winter Warm Up Crop, so it’ll be perfect!


  1. AZ and HI don’t really have much in the way of winter, yes? 65F this a.m. and we’re freezing and bundling up…on our way to the beach to surf, boogieboard, and swim. Ha! Tennis is yr-round here. Mahalo for sharing.


  2. Love this Golda! It’s such a perfect tennis card! We used to play a lot more before we had kids, maybe we can again now that they are older…that is if our knees can handle it!!


  3. Such a cute card Golda! This time last week I could have played tennis here (if I played tennis 🙂 Not today though. Brrrrr….. Thanks for sharing!


  4. Golda, that is a fabulous tennis card, I can’t imagine being cold in AZ. Also can’t imagine not having freezing temps with snow.


    1. You probably can’t imagine enjoying 115 plus degrees during the summer, either. I wouldn’t make it where it was so cold and with snow, so it’s great that we are where we are. 😉


    1. I can’t even imagine surviving the cold in Wisconsin. My son tells everyone he is cold blooded, which is why he loves AZ and hates winter. I think he got it from me.
