Bella Studio Blog Hop and challenge

Good morning and thanks for stopping by!
Today is the Bella Studio blog hop and as well as some eye candy along the way, there will also be an oppurtunity to win some yummy candy too :)
First of all though I will show you my card for this weeks challenge which is to use a sentiment as as the focus on your card.
Now for anyone who visits my blog regularly, you will probably have noticed that I just don't do cards without an image, so I had to sneak one in lol.

Ok I know the sentiment is not really the only main focus on my card but that's as close as it will get from me lol. It's not tucked away in a corner somewhere so I think it counts right?
Anyway I just had to use this little cutie "Pickle" because she is so sweet. How could I make a card and not use her?
This little sweetie is available now at the Bella Studio store and she comes without the banner too and with plain and some printed dresses.
The sentiment is also from Bella Studio and I coloured both the sentiment and image with Promarkers.
The base paper is Papermania and the green and blue ones are Basic Grey. Flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts and I made the green and blue one, which by the way I made a little tutorial last week which you can also see over at the Bella Challenge blog.
Did I mention before that they have a post every weekday over there? We have techniques, sketches, embelishing and colour combos for you to try as well as our weekly challenge! See loads to go have a look at :)

Now for the hop , here's the rules for both the challenge and the hop (can you tell I am lazy and just cut and paste? lol)

How to play: To participate in the Weekly Challenge, please create a *new* project using any Bella Digi Image following the current week's theme. You must link to your project using the link tool at the bottom of the post on the main Bella Challenge Blog  A winner will be chosen via and that person will receive the blog candy listed in the challenge post. In addition, the DT will choose their favorite three projects from all participants and ONE winner will be chosen to be the following week's Guest Designer. To be considered for the top three, you must have purchased an image from the shop (unless otherwise noted)...however, you don't have to use the purchased image in that week's challenge. During New Release Blog Hops a special blinkie will be embedded into one DT member's post. If you find that image, make sure you note it in your comment on that blog. One winner will be chosen at random to receive ONE new pre-selected image from that month's release.

Now you should hop over to see what lovelyness Dawn has to show you.
Remember to become a follower (if  you aren't already) and leave a comment on each blog to be in with a chance of winning.
Along the way you may find some extra goodies on some of the design teams blogs,  and remember to look out for that blinkie!

Here's a list of the order in which you need to go incase you lose your way.

Super cute card Lora. The image is just adorable and I know what you mean by having to add an image to a card. I don' usually make cards with just sentiments either.
