CHARACTER CAFE NEW RELEASE BLOG HOP

Happy Friday everyone!!  Life continues to be a bit insane, but it's all good.  It's the beginning of the month, so that means it's time for NEW RELEASES at THE CHARACTER CAFE!  You are going to LOVE the NEW RELEASES for June, so make sure you head on over to CHARACTER CAFE STORE and check them out.

You are now on AUDREY'S BLOG.  You should have arrived here from RACHAEL aka "QUEENIE", if you have not, you'll want to go back to THE CHARACTER CAFE BLOG and start at the beginning.

We are offering the image "Hands" as our Friday Freebie.


In order to qualify for the Grand Prize of 4 New Release images (randomly chosen) and a $5 Gift Certificate for The Café Store, we ask you to leave some love on everyone’s blogs and would love you to become a follower of both TCC Blog and the TCC store if you like what you see.  Blog hop discount code for 25% off is “Summer.”  The sale will run until Friday, June 11 at midnight.
If you would like to have a chance at becoming Guest Designer for July, we ask that you use either the freebie we’re giving or another TCC image and link your creation with our Linky Tool.  The Freebie will only be available until next Friday (Thurs. Midnight) and your creations are due by 10pm Thurs.
Good luck and have fun!!

I got to use HILLARY HIPPO for my image, I LOVE Hippos and HILLARY is so cute!  I decided she need to be a purple hippo, so I colored her and the present she's offering with Copics and Atyou Spicas.  Then I cut her out using nesties as well as the DP behind her.  Image edges are daubed with SU orchid opulance.  DP is DCWV.  CS is a textured creation that I got from one of the local craft stores.  Flower is Prima, ribbon is from Michaels.  Sentiment is computer generated and cut out with SU punch.  HILLARY does have 2 sentiment options, but I chose to use the image with no sentiment and print the sentiment separate from the image, but it is one of the sentiments that she comes with.  (Hope that makes sense).

I used Ariana's sketch from SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY for this card.  Thanks for an AWESOME sketch!!

Now, your next stop will be ANGIE E's BLOG.  ENJOY THE HOP!!
