Blog Bop: Inspiring Lovelies from Around the Blogosphere

It's been a while, but I've been a-boppin'.

What does that mean, exactly? Blog bopping as opposed to blog hopping? Well, in my little world, a blog hop is where you have an event set up ahead of time. You send your readers to a list of linked blogs that everyone in the hop has agreed upon. A blog bop is a little term that I came up with for what I do for posts like I have for you today. I start at one designer's blog, find something inspiring, then I bop from her blog to the blog of someone else in her blog roll. I keep on bipping and bopping from blog to blog until I find as much inspiration as I can.

Get it? Blog Bop.

I've got some inspiring lovelies for you today, friends. Enjoy!

Howdy Card by Teri Anderson

Forever Tag by Windy Robinson

A Sassy Little Valentine by Erin Lincoln

Sparkle & Cheer Card by Lea Lawson

Love Card by Sharyn Tormanen

Snow Days by Kimber McGray

Wedding Wishes by Tiffany Johnson

An Old Fashioned Hello by Julie Ebersole

Stamp Your Way Into the New Year Card by Courtney Kelley

Life Is Card by Danielle Flanders

Which is your favorite and why? Leave a comment by midnight EST on Sunday, January 9 and I'll draw one random winner to receive something yummy from my moxie magical prize drawer!

I love a-bippin' and a-boppin'!

Erica Hettwer said...

I love the sparkle & cheer card, it's just so pretty!

nancy jane said...

Julie's An Old Fashioned Hello was the first to pause my scrolling finger. The lively colors and font work so well with the telephone image. My second pause was at Danielle's Life Is Card and that pause lasted the longest, not just because I neared the end of your post, so I guess that means it's my favorite. The soft colors, elongated gems and framed flower are simply lovely.

ChristinaF said...

I love the "Howdy" card. The colors are great. But I really like ALL the other cards to....

Carol said...

I love that Wedding Wishes Card by Tiffany Johnson- so beautiful.

Danielle's card struck me the most for it's luminescent quality. I don't think I have ever seen a card like this one. To me it has an ethereal quality that makes it unique and one I would love to get.

Picking just one favourite is mighty hard! However for me it would have to be Wedding Wishes by Tiffany Johnson, such a beautiful and elegant card and using my absolute favourite colours too!!

Tanja said...

I like Teri's card the best, the colours are lovely and I just can't go past monochromatic patterne papers. The roses jost top it off!

Jen W. said...

This is a tough one... I like bold colours and big swirly cards of the Howdy Card by Teri Anderson but I'm also drawn to the simplicity of the Love Card by Sharyn Tormanen. Apparently anything with lots of circles is a winner with me!

Chris Cross said...

The card that caught my attention the most was the wedding wishes card. I love the butterflies inside the jars!

Amanda M said...

Sassy Valentine or howdy card... how does one chose?

Sue D said...

I like the Life Is Card by Danielle--I like the sentiment and the bling on the card. I am a beekeeper so anything about bees and /or honey I usually like and this was creative.

Kelly Sas said...

Wedding Wishes is my fav. I love the monochromatic look. I always like a card that makes you say "how did she do this?"

smahrty said...

I cannot pick a fave. Each one has its own personality and special little touches, so cool, i want to copy all of them!

Charity said...

I think my favorite is Courtney's card. I love the simplicity of the silhouette of all those well known icons mixed with the punch of color from the paper.

I almost couldn't choose between her card, the love card, and the howdy card. It was close.

~amy~ said...

wowza...I love them all and all those gals are in my google reader! I can only pick 1 as my fav?! hmmmmm....I pick courtney's...love her style to pieces!

Lynn (toomanycrayons) said...

Love that card by Lea...the little pom pom trim on the ice skaters dress is too fun and I just love the layout, colors, and details of the whole card.
