THE CHARACTER CAFE BLOG HOP!!

Guess what?!?  This is a weekend of Blog Hops here on my blog and today starts THE CHARACTER CAFE.  This is our first blog hop for the new DT that I am proud to be a member of:)  You will hop around to all the DT blogs, please leave comments on each blog to be considered for the GRAND PRIZE.  The Grand Prize winner will receive 4 new release images of your choice PLUS a $5 gift certificate to THE CAFE STORE.  Each DT member will also be choosing a winner from their blog to receive the image that they used in the HOP project.  All winners will be chosen at random.  The HOP will go until Thurs., May 13 at 10pm EST.

There is also a challenge associated with the HOP that you can find on the CHARACTER CAFE BLOG.  There will be a freebie there for you to use in the challenge and if you do, you will have a chance to be our Guest Designer for the month of June!!  Also, we'd love if you became a follower on the Character Cafe blog and website, but this is not required to win any prizes.

Finally, TCC is offering 30% off to all hoppers to celebrate the new DT!!  The code is newDT30 (case sensitive) and will be good til Friday, May 14 at 11:59pm EST.  You'll definitely want to take advantage of this AWESOME offer!!

So, let's start the hop!  You should have begun at THE CAFE STORE, if you haven't, please go back to the beginning so that you don't miss anyone!

You are NOW at AUDREY'S BLOG.  You should have arrived from SARA'S SUPER BLOG and your next stop will be ANGIE C'S AMAZING BLOG.   Your last stop will be  CHARACTER CAFE BLOG.   Hope you are enjoying yourself!!

The image I got the pleasure of working with is Shadow the Cat.  I chose the SPLITCOAST SKETCH CHALLENGE (SC279) this week for my sketch.
I used Copics to color Shadow and cut using nesties.  Image is printed on GP white 110.  DP is K & Company, all CS other than white is SU - pumpkin pie, kiwi kiss and kraft.  Both pumpkin pie and kiwi kiss papers embossed with Sizzix EFs.  Ribbon is SU striped grosgrain.  Sentiment is computer generated on GP white 110 and cut using nesties.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you like my project, please let me know:)  Enjoy the rest of the hop!!

Pretty card, love the embossed background too!

Kelly said...

Great card Audrey!! I love how you coloured Shadow he does look so relaxed...he sleeps like this often alongside his brother Tag. I have started drawing Tag in a similar pose, maybe I'll have to finish him for next release. I love the embossed orange background and the other colours you've chose. Glad to have you as part of our team.
