It's here!!! Delicious Doodles Blog Hop & First Challenge

Well the day has come for the first ever Delicious Doodles Challenge, and what an easy one we have to start the ball rolling!! It's ANYTHING GOES so I really hope that you'll be joining us! To celebrate the launch, we're having a blog hop. 
However, it's not any old Blog Hop - oh no!! Each girl on the DT has an image to giveaway, that's right - GIVE AWAY. It will be the image used to make their creation! So, if you want to win these images, all you need do is leave a comment on the DT members blog. The image I used can be seen on my card at the bottom of this post.

If that isn't enough to get you all excited, Teri is also going to give away TEN DIGI IMAGES on the Challenge Blog. The Challenge winner will get to choose 10 digi's from the Delicious Doodles Shop!! BUT to qualify for this awesome prize there is a small catch! You must comment on ALL of the DT Blogs, AND make a project to enter.

OK, are you ready? Lets go!!! The hop starts here

If you're already part of the hop you should have arrived from Amy's Blog and your next stop is Alex's Blog.

Just in case you get lost, here's the Blog Hop order ( yes I know there are a few of us, but that way we can bring you weekly challenges with plenty of inspiration).


(Team A):

(Team B):

Teri (Store Owner) and then back to the Delicious Doodles Challenge Blog to enter your creation for your chance to win the fabby TEN digi-images of your choice!!

Phew! Hope you got all that peeps!

The Challenge and Blog Hop will finish on Thursday 25th November at 6pm GMT (UK time). Each winner for the individual digi's will be announced on the DT members Blogs, so be sure to follow them if you want to know who their winners are!

The Grand Prize winner will be announced on the Challenge Blog on the morning of Friday 26th November before the next Challenge goes live later that day.

So if your still with me here's my card (I'm so sorry for the pictures, but it was a complete nightmare to photograph). Remember, if you want to be in with a chance of winning this image all you need to do is leave me some love ;)



The image was coloured with Promarkers, then covered with a Hobby Craft adhesive sheet and sprinkled with iridescent ultra-fine glitter. I cut some acetate to size, scored it down the centre and then randomly stamped snowflakes over it with Stazon. Once that had dried the image was layered up and mounted onto the acetate with glue dots. Then mats of the same size were used to cover the rear of the image and the inside/back of the card. This also added some stability to the card. I then added a Marianne Creatables Snowflake die cut coated with Stardust and Gold Stickles. The sentiment is from my new LOTV set.

This photograph is the unmounted image, but it shows the sparkle and glimmer a little better.

If you've got this far, thank you so much for sticking with this epic post, and I wish you ALL the very best of luck.
