We're goin' Hoppin', We're goin' Hoppin' today....

Remember that tune from "American Bandstand"? Well, today, we're hoppin' with MyGrafico Team B! (if you missed the Team A hop, be sure to check it out - see the list of DT members over in the right column and check it out!)

Both teams are welcoming new Design Team members this week - woohoo and welcome gals! I am staying on from the last DT round as the coordinator of Team B and I am loving it because I am addicted to sketches! And we have a great one to share with you today but before I get into that, let me tell you what's in store for today's hop!

If you started here you want to head to Martha's blog first- she's the start of the hop. After you come back here then the next stop on the hop will be Angelica. Then keep on going from there. But that's not all! Be sure to leave a comment on every stop along the way because one Design Team member from Team B will be randomly choosing a winner to receive the set we are working with this week: Zenware Designs Circus!! It's a mystery which one will be choosing the winner so be sure to leave comments on all of the blogs you visit!




















AND there's even more ways to win! Try your hand at either of this week's challenges (or both!) and you'll be entered to win this set also! Details on entering the challenges can be found at the MyGrafico Challenge blog. So on to today's card and sketch!

I wanted something with some fun elements to go along with these great images so I created a sketch featuring some circles that could be used for embellishments, smaller images, sentiments - whatever!
















And here's my card featuring the super cute tent!




















I colored the tent with Copics that matched the pretty striped paper and then added a punched border and three button embellies to finish it off. The buttons are actually two stacked on each other - a plain white button and a flowery button on top. I think this would be the perfect party invitation for a little girl with the inside saying "Come One, Come All"  .....

So enjoy the hop and give our challenges a try - you might just win a fabulous digi-set to start off your New Year right! Oh and be sure to welcome the new DT members along the way - we're thrilled to have them on the teams! Your next stop is Angelica -  -  see you again soon!
