Rubeena’s Crafting Anniversary Blog Hop Day TWO + Giveaways



Welcome to Rubeena’s Crafting Anniversary 2-Day Blog Hop! This hop is epic with more than 60 guests and over $600 in sponsored prizes! Not only are we celebrating four years since Rubeena first discovered cardmaking but also crafting in general. This industry is made up of wonderful individuals who are creative, inspirational, kind, and incredibly supportive!
Hop along so you can learn about why we create and how much joy it brings us! For details on day one of the hop, you can visit this post.

Ruby has been an avid supporter of MANY crafters, and I am a grateful one of many.  So blessed to have her come by and give support on my projects.  It means so much to stay in touch with the lovely people that encourage others.  
Rubeena has commented and encouraged me since 2014. 
 I quickly knew that she was so very talented and have stayed in touch!  
Thanks Rubeena for being "YOU!"

My journey in blogging began in 2008 when my husband and I were engaged and we wanted to ensure that all of his family in Missouri felt connected.  I started the Blog (hence the name Wienerhoneymooners).. and it quickly morphed into my crafts as I did my own wedding arranging, decor, etc.
Well, ....we celebrate
 (if he remembers) 
our 10 year Anniversary 
on 8/30/18.

Here is the HOPPER List!

Beautiful VIVID cards! You and the paint are a perfect match ☺

Teri Smith said...

Your choice of a bright yellow background makes the cards look like they are in the bright sunshine & we all know how good sunshine is for flowers & for us as well. When I look out the window & see blue sky & sun, my spirit is uplifted, no matter how I may be feeling that day. Both your cards are incredible, but I am particularly taken with the one with the bits of watercolour pooled around the edges of the arrangement. Love that look. Thanks to the sponsors of this hop & the chance to win, but I must say just seeing the creativity & beauty & reading some people stories is a gift in itself.

Dee Earnshaw said...
