MyGrafico Challenge and BLOG HOP

Oh I have so much to tell you as I am so excited that MyGrafico is up and running again and we are getting back into the swing of the weekly challenges!

Here are all of the details - you don't want to miss a thing!

Today is our first Design Team blog hop. To start, you need to go to Martha's blog. Then follow the hop and be on the look-out for a LETTER to be highlighted on each blog you hop to! You want to leave a comment on each blog along the way to win an image from the Candy Shoppe set (see below) AND you want to collect the letters to create a phrase. Once you know what the phrase is, you want to email your guess to mccreations@ymail.com by 10:00 pm (PST) tonight and you might just be the winner of the entire set!

Here's my card for this week's kick-off celeBration!



The challenge is to use a sweet image and the colors RED, PINK, and GREEN. These cherries were printed on the polka dot DP and then cut out and added to the image which was also printed on white cardstock. The leaves were colored with Copic markers. I also want to call your attention to the stripe paper on the card. I didn't have another paper to go along with the DP I used so I scanned a section of the DP and, using the colors from it, created my own striped paper in Photoshop Elements 7 and then printed it and used it on my card. Worked great and I am sure it is an idea I will use often!

I will be giving away the cherries image to a random person chosen from everyone who leaves me a comment on this post today. And did you find my featured letter? Keep collecting letters to create a phrase and email to the address aBove by 10:00 pm PST TONIGHT to win this entire set:



Your next stop on the hop is ANN so be sure to see what Candy Shoppe creation she has for you!

There will be more prizes all week long so you want to visit the MyGrafico Challenge blog every day for chances to win:

WEDNESDAY: I will have another sample for you and when YOU create a sweet card, you might just win Back to School (the set I will be highlighting).
THURSDAY: Leave a comment at the Challenge blog and you might win Halloween Ghoulies
FRIDAY: Last but not least, everyone who has joined the Followers list or left a comment at the Challenge blog has a chance to win the Trick or Treat set
