What is a Blog Hop????

So, I am sitting in my Autumn Card Workshop last night (by the way, SO much fun!!!) and one of my guests asked me what is a Blog Hop?  This isn't the first time I have been asked this question, so it got me thinking.  Perhaps, just maybe, we as scrappers/crafters are starting to speak our own language?  We tend to forget there are a whole bunch of novices out there that have no idea what we are saying!

So, a blog hop is a where a bunch of creative crafters get together and post their amazing work on their blogs and a host creates a list of these crafters and lines them up by their blog url (address).  Then when someone wants to visit the blog hop, they start at the beginning and can quickly go through a bunch of blogs and see MANY great projects and ideas based on a theme by clicking on the links provided on each blog.

Today, I participated in the Autumn Art Philosophy Blog Hop.  I am going to tell you, there are some really creative/cool stuff on this hop if you want to view for yourself hop over to Lucy's Blog to start from the beginning.  I was so inspired that I actually went to my Creative Cottage Studio and crafted for hours.  That says a lot, since I was up until after midnight last night with my fellow crafters making autumn cards.  With this all said, I came away with some pretty cute thank you note cards!  Thanks to Stephanie and her adorable design, I was inspired to create these cuties!  This is truly what blog hops are all about!

I ran the tops through my Cuddle Bug and then inked with chocolate ink.
