D2D Blog Hop

TGIF! Welcome to the first Designed2Delight blog hop. The design team will be showcasing Faith's new images today. And at the end of the hop you will find out how to get the first free stamp for the Delightful Inspiration blog challenge for July. If you just happened on my blog, you can go to Delightful Inspiration and start at the beginning. Hope you'll hop along, grab the freebie and play with us in the progressive challenge this month.

For my card I used Hula Island, which will go on sale in the Designed2Delight digi store today. I think this little penguin standing on a melting block of ice is just too cute! I love all of Faith's cheerful images, this one is already on the way to my Chemo Angel buddy, who could really use some cheer. Figured the darling image and bright colors should brighten her day a bit.

I used the this week's sketch from Midnight Madness sketch challenges (MMSC60). I chose the simpler version and turned it sideways.

Thanks so much for dropping by today. Now, hop on over to Debbie's blog and see what she has created.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: D2D Hula Island
Ink: printer
Paper: gp110, Real Red, Yoyo Yellow, Tempting Turquoise, PTI New Leaf, DCWV patterned
Embellishments: copics, stickles, crystal effects, SU ribbon, SU corner rounder and border punches
