Hop Along With Craft Your Passion

Welcome to Craft Your Passion Challenges VERY FIRST "Anything Goes" Blog Hop!!

We are very excited about all the changes our blog has gone through in the last couple of months and wanted to throw a party. What better way to do that, than to have a BLOG HOP!!!

If you have hopped over from Jenn's blog, then you are in the right place. If you just happened to stop by and would like to join our hop from the beginning, please go to Craft Your Passion Challenges and follow along for a chance to win some AMAZING blog candy along the way and PRIZES at the end.

All Craft Your Passion DT members are going to be playing along in the hop with some very special guest designers.

Each designer along the way is featuring a project that showcases a digital image from at least one of our amazing Blog Hop Sponsors.

What’s more exciting is you can participate too by creating a project and linking it up over at Craft Your Passion Challenges for a chance to win one of several prizes.

But, there’s a twist. Be sure to visit all the stops and leave a comment. Once you have finished the hop we would like you to create a project using at least one digital stamp and enter it with our Linky tool.

While you are hopping, be sure to check out the blog candy the designer's have to offer you. You don't want to miss out on any of it!

I have two projects for you, today, from two different sponsors. First, my card featuring a fun image from Bugaboo Stamps, who's offering a great prize as part of our hop:

My card layout uses Repeat Impressions Sketch S711. I've used this wonderful image from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. I used some new ruffled ribbon from Stampin Up. The cream colored panel is embossed with one of my new Cuttlebug folders. I cut out two fun bundles of clouds and pop dotted them onto my card, for dimension. The raindrops were punched with a Teardrop punch by Imagination, then outlined with a white opaque pen, then pop dotted them to the card. This turned out to be a great male card!

My next card uses this fabulous image called Klub Kid Witch by another of our wonderful sponsors, the wonderful Rick St. Dennis.

I've colored Klub Kid Witch with Promarkers and used a fun mix of Halloween papers from my stash. The glittered green ribbon is new, from Michael's.

Now that I've told you about my projects, let's get get to the next stop on the hop!

Next, stop by Jamie's blog, to see what she has in store for you today.

Remember, once you have hopped to all the stops and left your comments (we will be checking), it's your turn to show us your "Anything Goes" project.

Make sure to include a digital stamp somewhere on your project, and link up your project over at Craft Your Passion Challenges by Midnight CST September 21 to be eligible for the prizes. Winners will be announced on our Monday, September 26th Challenge post.

Thank you all for hopping with us today and don't forget to "like" Craft Your Passion Challenges on facebook and join in our September Facebook Fan of the Month Challenge under the "discussions" tab!!
