The Character Cafe Blog Hop!!! Today!

Hey again-

This is my first ever DT blog hop! I am so excited and nervous! I was chosen to be the first DT participant! You all must promise to view everyone's blog after mine! You should be visiting me after being at The Character Cafe!

Kendra & Kelly are awesome to work with! They also have specials for you all!!! This is a great chance for you all to get the terrific images they have available! So you want to know what is in it for you??? Then I will tell you!

1. 30% off images from October 2nd to the 9th! Is this cool or what? You will need the code OctBlogHop

2. Each of the DT will get to award the image they worked with to a lucky participant! How? Just leave some love on our blogs! Now is that not easy or what?!!!

3. Freebie at the end of the hop available at the Character Cafe!

Saving the best one for last!!!!!!!!!

4. Comment on the Cafe blog for a chance to win all the new release images! I was speechless at how wonderful these were!!!! You will LOVE them! If you are a lucky winner of this package but already won at a blog you CAN substitute with an older image! Now that is very cool of them!

I was given the outstanding image of Dayzee! I will tell you, I did panic! Those of you that know me know that I have NOT done human images! This is a first for me and boy was it scary!!!!!! Well enough about that and to the card!

I found the background paper and thought it would be perfect for the image! It was hard to work with because of the faded colors. I think it came out pretty good!

My stash & SU!



Metal Dots:
Best Occasions

I love how this came out! At the bottom corner you could put a sentiment if you wanted! This makes the card universal! Oh yeah this card was done with Prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol! I love how her blue jeans came out!

I am gonna offer a small rak (nothing big) for the person(s) who finds the "hitch hiker" on my card! I found it funny so I used the picture anyway! LOL Can you find it? I will randomly pick a name! So I guess you have to stop back to see if you win the images from The Character Cafe & the little thing from me!

Okay now I will send you to the next blog! Go visit our very own Sara for your next image and more details!

Have fun ladies! Don't forget to leave your comments on each DT blog & go back to comment at The Character Cafe! To win the grand prize you must have stopped by to visit us all!

Great card and coloring. I found the hitch hiker! He kind of blends into the card. I don't want to give it away...but it looks like an embellishment ;)
