March Blog Hop Winners!

We're so excited to announce the March Blog Hop sorry for the delay, but I was away for work and am just catching up on things now. We loved seeing all of your cards and can't thank you enough for playing along.
Vickie Z. created a gorgeous card using Woodgrain Additions and Very Vintage Greetings - we love the watercolor paper and distressed edges on this beautiful card, and we could not be happier to announce her as next month's Guest Designer!

And the random winner of a $25 gift certificate to Wplus9 is:

#15 maria f.
CONGRATS, Vickie and Maria!

Vickie, if you could please e-mail me at cloudwplus9 at gmail dot com, I'll be in touch with all the details for next month!

Maria, if you could please e-mail customerservice at wplus9 dot com with "Cloud9 Blog Hop Winner" in the subject line, Dawn will get your prize out to you as soon as possible.

Thanks so much to Dawn Woleslagle from Wplus9 for sponsoring, and congrats again to our winners! 

We will be back with another hop next month - it will preview on April 6th and the Hop will go live on April 9th

Hope to see you then!

March Hop Preview, a Farewell, and some Hello's

Hey there, everyone!

March is here and we are ready for our next blog hop! I chose a beautiful flower photo this month; it's full of color, and even better is the watercolor painting in the background! I found it on Erin After After:

The hop will begin on March 9th at 10am EST. At that time, we will include some projects from our Inspiration Team and last month's winner of our Guest Designer Spot, Michelle Leone, to help get you started. It's also a great chance to win a gift certificate to Wplus9!

We also have some team announcements to make:

We are so very sad to announce that our beloved team member, Christina MacLaren, has decided to step down from our team to focus on other things. *sniffle.* We all love you, Christina, and will miss you and your inspirational cards! ALL THE BEST & HUGS to you, friend!

At the same time, we are super excited to announce that the marvelous Erin Taylor and Maureen Merritt have joined our team! I am just tickled pink to announce them as new members, as their cards are always so fabulous and I know how much they Wplus9, too. We're all dying to see what they come up for this month's hop!

So, do you have any ideas for your project yet? Please share them with us if you like - I'd love to hear them!

See you in a few days!
