#spreadjoynotgerms Official Blog Hop



Welcome to the Spread Joy Not Germs Blog Hop!

First off thank you to Catherine Pooler and Alexandra Stapleton from The Hedgehog Hollow for putting on this hop! There are 31 sponsors and approximately 150 bloggers participating today to bring you joy!

The theme of this blog hop is to show off our happy cards and to make people smile! It is also intended to inspire people to send their hand made cards to friends and loved ones during this time!
Won't it be nice to spread a whole lot of JOY πŸ˜ƒto those that are doing their part, staying home and NOT spreading germs 🦠!


There are 31 amazing sponsors for this hop and they are giving away some terrific prizes!



Today I have 2 happy cards to share with you using products from 3 of the companies that are sponsoring prizes in today's hop! Here are the links to their shops and the prize amounts:


i-crafter ($20 Gift Certificate)
Paper Sweeties ($50 Gift Certificate)
and
Pear Blossom Press ($25 Gift Certificate)

πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

The first card I have for you today is a light up card using the
EZ Lights from Pear Blossom Press and the Rose Heart die from i-crafter.  I placed the EZ lights behind the center of the rose so it would light up when you pressed the button.  I really enjoyed making this an interactive card and what a smile it would bring to someone's face to see their card light up! The Rose Heart die  from i-crafter  is such an intricate beautiful die and is perfect for so many types of cards! The sentiment just says it all, "you brighten my day"! Don't we all need a little brightening no matter what is going on in our lives! 


 Here is what the card looks like when it is lit up:



And here is the card in action:





For my second card today I am featuring products from the Paper Sweeties April Sweet Kit and I used the sweet bicycle embossing folder with the Hello Sweet Cuts die cut. This card just makes me smile! What could be more fresh and happy than some pretty puffy clouds and a fresh bouquet of flowers in a sweet bicycle basket! I think this card would cheer anyone up who needs it right now!
