MyGrafico Blog Hop

(please scroll down for Sunshine Monday)

I am so excited that MyGrafico is up and running again and we are getting back into the swing of the weekly challenges! So to celebrate the Design Team is having a party!! Here are all of the details - you won't want to miss a thing.

Today is our first Design Team blog hop. So, if you arrived here from Cassie's blog, you're on the right track. If not, you need to go to Martha's blog. Then follow the hop and be on the look-out for a letter to be highlighted on each blog you hop to! You want to leave a comment on each blog along the way for a chance to win an image from the Candy Shoppe set (see below) AND you want to collect the letters to create a phrase. Once you know what the phrase is, you want to email your guess to mccreations@ymail.com by 10:00 pm (PST) tonight and you might just be the winner of the entire set!

Here's my card for this week's kick-off celebration!



The challenge is to use a sweet image (MyGrafico, preferred) and the colors red, pink and green. I created this card by printing the image in two different sizes onto Neenah white card stock and colored with Prismacolor markers. Then I took a heart shaped doily and folded it so that it appeared to be a fancy fold napkin. The smaller strawberry is adhered with pop-dots. Then I added a ribbon and a sentiment created from the Unity June KOM. My base is Pink Pirouette, but I think I got my lighting a bit strong and it washed that color out.

I will be giving away this yummy chocolate strawberry image to a person chosen randomly from everyone who leaves me a comment on this post today. I'll email the winner on Tuesday. OK, so keep collecting letters to create a phrase and email to the address above by 10:00 pm PST TONIGHT to win this entire set:

Your next stop on the hop is Mary so be sure to see what Candy Shoppe confection she has for you!

There will be more prizes all week long so you want to visit the MyGrafico Challenge blog every day for chances to win:

TUESDAY: sign up at the challenge blog to become a Follower and you could win Superheroes

WEDNESDAY: YOU create a sweet card, you might just win Back to School.

THURSDAY: Leave a comment at the Challenge blog and you might win Halloween Ghoulies

FRIDAY: Last but not least, everyone who has joined the Followers list or left a comment at the Challenge blog has a chance to win the Trick or Treat set

All kinds of fun planned so be sure to check back often! I will post reminders through out the week of each day's activities so you have lots of chances to win!

Thanks for stopping - now HOP along!
