A Blog Hop!

Hello again. There's some fun stuff going on today, and I bet you can't guess what it is?...........A Blog Hop no less! Maybe the title gave it away. Yep, ByLoriDesigns, home of the sugary sweet Lollipop's and Sugar Sticks etc. are celebrating ........well....... anything you feel like celebrating, but the important thing is...........there are prizes involved! WoooooHooooo!!!

Here's the brief - you need to start over at the Lollipop Shop , where you will find the running order for the lovely ladies of the Design Team. Leave a comment there, and on each DT members blog to be in with a chance of winning one of these...........

..........a $10 gift certificate to spend at the Lollipop Shop, and there are 2 up for grabs! Not bad eh?

Now, if you have arrived here from the lovely Andrea's blog, then you are on the right track, so leave a comment (preferably a nice one!) and head on over to the lovely Hannah's blog. If you've happened here by chance, thanks for stopping by.....visitor's are always welcome, but if you'd like to join in the blog hop, skip over to the Lollipop Shop and start 'hopping'.

Before you leave though, maybe I should show you a card huh? I'm guessing that's what you're here for (unless the $10 is more appealing!). Today, I got to play with a new digi created by the talented Hannah Boyd (who you will be visiting next I hope!), from her new line of digi stamps........Bug and Roo, which you can also find at the Lollipop Shop. Here's 'Sunny'...............

Yes, there is obviously a whole bunch of talent in the 'Boyd' family!

So, I'll quickly run through the deets and you can be on your way. Sunny has been coloured with a combination of Copic markers and Prisma pencils. Papers are from Cosmo Cricket's Earth Love series and everything has been inked with 2 shades of Tim Holtz distressing ink. I used an EK Success border punch and threaded ribbon through, and used a fine line marker to create faux stitching and doodling in various places on the card. The sentiment is actually a digi created by Lori Boyd, which I printed on to Kraft cardstock, and raised in places with foam dots to create the dimension.

One last thing, I had no intention of using a sketch for this card as I pretty much knew I wanted a large, 'sunlike' circle behind the image. However, whilst I was cruising blogland for challenges the other day, I happened across a perfect sketch on Karen Giron's blog, for her Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, so of course, it was meant to be!

Well, that's it from me for now. I'll leave you with the complete running order for the blog hop, just in case you get a little disorientated (or should I say distracted!) out there in blogland.
