Chase Away the Friday the 13th Blues . . .

and hop along in the Hanna Stamps "Good Luck Blog Hop!" Who believes in paraskavedekatriaphobia (fear of Friday the 13th)??? NOT ME!!! Friday the 13th is FAR from scary around here!!! I am so excited about this! I mean, how fun is it to blurf and then have an chance to win SURPRISE GOODIE BAGS for doing so???

It's so easy -- all you have do to be entered is leave a comment on this post, and then blurf on over to Cindy's blog and rinse and repeat. You can enter once on each of the design team members blogs and there will be a winner chosen at random from the comments left on each blog on Monday . . . HOW COOL EH?!

If you are reaching this post out of sequence, the blog hop starts HERE at Kristi's blog. (Don't want you to miss all the possible opportunities to win.)

This card is for the Friday challenge (HSFC60) in the Hanna Stamps forum over on splitcoast. This week Jeanne challenged us to use diamonds in our design, cause 'Hanna sparkles like a diamond' I framed the sentiment in a diamond. I actually think it turned out really neat looking. Thanks for the challenge Jeanne.
