Digital Tuesday 100th challenge blog hop and By The Cute and Girly DT

Welcome to our first ever Digital Tuesday blog hop! We are celebrating our 100th challenge this week with a special "CELEBRATIONS" challenge and lots of prizes.
I am the first stop on the hop, so if you just came to visit and didn't know about the hop, you are in the right place to join in with some fun and a chance to win lots of prizes.

Each DT member is featuring one of our fab sponsors with a prize from that sponsor. To win these prizes, all you have to do is leave a comment on each of the design team members blogs.
There is also a HUGE prize on the challenge blog which in order to win you must enter the challenge as you normaly would (remember you can use any digital element, it doesn't have to be a digital image) and then collect all the "special" letters from the DT blogs and follow the instructions on the Digital Tuesday challenge blog when you reach the end of the hop.
It reallly is a huge prize and I kinda wish that I wasn't on the design team this week because I would love to win it! lol

My sponsor is Stamp Fairy 
and the generous owner Gerda gave me one of her sweet digi stamps to use on my sample and also a digi stamp of the winners choice  to give away to one winner who leaves a comment on my blog.
This will run all week along with the challenge and I will announce the winner along with next weeks Digital Tuesday post.

I made 2 samples for the hop but one is also a DT sample for By The Cute and Girly where the new challenge is Spring.
So first up is a card I made with the cute image that Gerda gave me, this one is called Lenny Bee and I just love it:)

I used some old Stamping Up paper and the black one is by Doodlebug. Ribbon from my stash, little white roses by Papermania and the yelkow roses are from Janlynn.com, and the glittery flourish is a sticky rub on by Making Memories from a foil, gliter and flock rub on set. I used the glitter sheet (obviuosly lol) on top of the rub on. You can't see it very well here, but it really sparkles in real life.
I printed Lenny on some coredinations cardstock and coloured with Promarkers, and I really like the texture it has gave him. I also glittered his wings with Dazzling Diamonds glitter.

You can see the texture on the image better in the pic below.

I loved this image so much that I just had to use it again:) and I used another Stamp Fairy image along with it to decorate a treat box that I made.
This is also one of my samples for By The Cute and Girly.

I made a lot of these treat boxes at christmas time and filled them up with hot chocolate, mini marshmallows and candy canes, but I didn't have anything to fill this one with lol. Will have to get some little Easter treats and add them later.

I printed the images on my normal paper this time and again coloured with Promarkers.
The paper I used is one by Papermania and I used some purple coredinations for the actual box.
Some ribbon and a flower from my stash to finish, and job done. I didn't want to over embellish this because the images are so cute that I don't think it needs much to embellish, especially when it will be full of treats.....for how long I am not sure though, because I am a chocoholic!! lol

Stamp Fairy has so many cute image in store, you just have to go have a look if you haven't already. If you like cute image, you are gonna love all of he images.

The leter you need from me(well actually mines is not a letter, but the rest of the DT just have one letter for you lol) is 100th
And the next stop on the hop is AMY, who I know will have some fab inspiartion for you.

Thanks for joining us for our 100th challenge blog hop and please remember to leave a comment on every blog along the way for a chance to win the prizes!!
