Daisy Doodles Blog Hop!

Welcome to Daisy Doodles big celebration blog hop. There is plenty to celebrate today. Jules the owner/creator is celebrating her wedding anniversary and Daisy's Digi Doodles shop has been open exactly one year today. So let's send lots of good wishes to Jules, her hubby and the store today! Happy anniversary and many more!

If you arrived from  Tina's  Crafty Place blog you are in the right spot. If you just happened upon my blog you can start at the beginning of the hop at Daisy Doodles Creative Challenge blog.

The image I used for my card is called Bloomin' Potty. I used the Eat, Sleep, Stamp Sketchy Thursday #133 for the layout here. I printed the image three times and cut and layered the flowers for dimension.

Here is a close up to see the dimension on these blooms, I colored them to look like one of my fave flowers gerbera daisies. A touch of stickles in the centers and some crystal effects on the leafs.

Now for a special treat Jules has graciously allowed each stop to give away the image they used. So one random commenter will win this Bloomin' Potty image. Leave me a comment on this post and I'll pick a random comment on Sunday night.

There is a big sale going on in the store this weekend (50% off everything), so head on over to the store for the deets and to pick up those images you've been eyeing. June 15 The Daisy Doodles Creative Challenge blog will be posting a new challenge where a DD image is necessary to participate, so you can pick up an image now, while they are on sale!

At the end of the hop you will have the chance to win an image of your choice if you've commented on all the posts. So make sure and comment along the way. Your next hop stop is the talented Cheryl's blog,    She Stamps I'm sure she has prepared something fabulous for you. 

Thanks for hopping with us today!

Adding the winner of the image is #11 Babe! Joanne will be posting the winners' list on the Daisy Doodles blog tomorrow 6/12. Thank you all for your sweet comments.
