October Blog Hop with The Character Cafe

Hi Everyone

So today is the first blog hop with the newly announce The Character Cafe DT. If you are following along with this hop then you should have arrived at my blog from Angie's Blog if not then you would need to go back to the start of the hop which is at The Character Cafe Store

To celebrate the new releases The Character Cafe will be having 30% off all sales from Friday 2nd October to Friday 9th October and you will need to use the code OctBlogHop for this discount.

Each Design Team member will be drawing one winning name from the comments on their blog and that winner will receive the image the Design Team member worked with.

There will be a Freebie Image at the end of the Hop

Kendra & Kelly will draw one name from the comments left on The Character Cafe Blog for the Grand Prize Winner who will receive all the new releases, if the grand prize winner has already won a new image from the DT draw then they can choose one from the older images.

And finally if you post about our blog hop somewhere else then please leave a comment for Kendra & Kelly on The Character Cafe blog telling them you have done this and where you have left our info as it will earn you an extra entry in the Grand Prize Draw.

So for the Blog Hop I was given Pilgrim Petra and Turkey Tom to work with - aren't they just adorable!! I chose to colour them with my copic makers and found some matching papers from a Hot off the Press cardmakers pad. To finish the card I added some grosgrain ribbon also from Hot off the Press and some buttons from my stash that I also tied some fibres through.

Here is a closer look at Petra and Tom - I hope you like them as much as I do!!!!!!

Well that's my card for you, your next stop on this journey will be Billie's Blog

I hope you enjoy our blog hop and good luck to everyone that enters the comment draws.
