Digital Tuesday Blog Hop

Hi everyone and happy tuesday!!

Today is such an exciting day!! We are celebrating our 100th challenge over at Digital Tuesday!! And what better way to celebrate than with a blog hop!

If you arrived here from the amazing Anneke's blog , you are on the right track, but if not you will want to start at the beginning of the hop at LORA'S blog.

Each DT member is featuring one of our amazing sponsors with a prize from that sponsor. To win these prizes, all you have to do is leave a comment on each of the design team members blogs.
There is also a grand prize on the challenge blog which in order to win you must enter the challenge as you normally would (remember you can use any digital element, it doesn't have to be a digital image) and then collect all the "special" letters from the DT blogs and follow the instructions on the Digital Tuesday challenge blog when you reach the end of the hop.

My blog is being sponsored by the Paper Pretties. You can visit their store by simply clicking the logo below.


One randomly chosen winner off my comments on this post will receive 3 of their adorable digis!
I was also able to choose one of their images to use for today's blog hop, and with spring and easter around the corner I decided to go with a "spring celebration" card. I just love this cute image!!


My card was very much inspired by Jack's super cute "swing card". I have never tried one of these before! They are so easy to make and so much fun!!


Here is the other side of the oval.



The image and sentiment have both been printed out on the computer. Both were cut out using an oval shape. I taped some silver cord on the inside of one oval and then glued the two ovals together. I cut out a larger oval from the designer paper and also the card base. Then I taped the silver cord on the inside of the card and covered that with some matting. I really like how it sort of "swings". And I thought this image would be perfect for it! Papers are from Stampin up and I embellished with a prima flower, button and silver cord, and on the other side I attached a punched out butterfly (martha stewart punch), with some sticky pearls.

Now back to the blog hop info:
The letter you need from me is E.

And the next stop on the hop is Karen's fabulous blog!

Thanks so much for joining us for our 100th challenge blog hop and please remember to leave a comment on every blog along the way for a chance to win the prizes!!

Here is a list of the hop order is case you get lost.
