Share the Love Blog Hop

Welcome to Paper Piecings By Nikki's first bi-monthly blog hop. This month, the design team has been asked to create something with love. If you have seen any of Nikki's new releases, you'll see that we had no problem picking and choosing which piecings to use. So get cozy and be prepared to be inspired...

If you've arrived from Nikki, then you are in the right place. I'm second stop on the hop, and so pleased you hopped over to see what I've created.  I made a sign for my craft room.
I used the freebie that Nikki is offering for this hop (make sure you get yours and link your project up).  I incorporated all the ribbons on my wall hanging.  The bear holds the purple ribbon, which I covered in stickles.  Purple is the color of Domestic Violence Awareness.  It is something that is close to my heart, as my hubby works for the Attorney General's Office and is a Domestic Violence Investigator.  My heart goes out to these amazing women who have found the courage and strength to "Control their Own Desitny"  The other sentiments are "Positive Thoughts" that remind me that there is power in each of us...we do control  how we live and feel.  It also reminds me that there is much love in this world - we only have to open our hearts to the possibilities.

You can get a set of these incredible sentiment stamps by stopping by K Andrew Designs and picking up the "Positive Thoughts" set, which is just perfect for this piecing - there are endless possibilities.  Her motto is, 'STAMP GOOD - DO GOOD' - $1 of every stamp set goes to charity!

Which brings me to one of the reasons we are doing this blog hop - "Sharing the Love"...

Every purchase you make at Paper Piecings By Nikki, $1 is donated to charity. Giving back to this world we live in. We also want to share some love with you. Go to Paper Piecings By Nikki and pick up your 'Share the Love" Freebie that is on the bottom of her donation page. We would love to have you create something special with it and then link it up to either Paper Piecings By Nikki facebook page or her blog.  Either way, you will be eligible to win $20 of Paper Piecings By Nikki!!!!

To be eligible to win, you must do the following:
  1. 'Like' Paper Piecings By Nikki on facebook.
  2. "Follow" her on
  3. Leave a comment on Nikki's blog or facebook telling of you favorite charity and why it is close to your heart
  4. Link your project, using the freebie - or another PPBN piecing on either her blog or facebook page - or both for a second chance to win.

The challenge will remain open for one week. Nikki will choose the winner next Friday. Make sure you leave an address so we can contact you.
