Digital Tuesday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Digital Tuesday 200th challenge blog hop!!
We are having a blog hop to celebrate alongside our normal challenge, which is "Buttons or Bling"with the added option of making an anniversary card/gift, and we have prizes on the dt blogs as well as a prize for the challenge from our sponsor this week which is Robyn's Fetish who is giving away 5 digital images to one lucky winner.

For a chance to win a prize on the dt blogs all you have to do is comment on each dt blog, then leave a comment on the Digital Tuesday Challenge blog to let us know you have completed the hop. Your name will then be put into the draw and winners will be announced on the challenge blog next Tuesday along with the new challenge.
You can also enter this weeks challenge for a chance to win the Robyn's Fetish prize and if you combine the buttons or bling theme along with something for an anniversary, you will be given an extra entry into the challenge prize draw.

The hop starts at Amy's blog, so you will want to start there.

I didn't have time to make a card for this weeks challenge, but I made one last week just for fun which I forgot to blog, and it had buttons and bling, so it came in handy for this weeks challenge post :)
I like to use our sponsors images as much as possible, but as I already had this card made, I couldn't this week.

The image I used is from La-La Land Crafts and I coloured with Copics and added loads of stickles, then stuck her onto a die cut frame which was done with a Nellie Snellen die.
The papers are Prima, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, flourishes were done with a Marianne die, the funky lacey ribbon stuff was a gift from a friend and the buttons and ribbon which has sequins, beads and glittery bits on it were from my stash.

A close up of the image (sorry it's a bit blurry, my camera is really playing up, think it's time to buy a new one.....again!!). I love these images, they are so much fun to colour.

I took a funny angled pic so you can see the sparkle on the image, and you can just see some of the beads and sequins on the ribbon peeking through :)

I haven't really had a chance to shop for a prize yet as we just decided to do this hop last week and I was rushing about doing wedding stuff, so I decided my prize would be a mystery prize (it's just as much a mystery to me as it is to you as I have no idea what it will be yet! lol).
So whoever wins my prize will get a surprise package! 
I can tell you that it won't come in a box like this and is not likely to fill a box that size either lol.
Just leave a comment on this post for a chance to win my prize.
You must have commented on every dt blog on the hop for a chance to win our prizes.
No need to follow my blog (unless you want to of course), or any other silly rules, just comment on the dt blogs and we will chose winners at random next Tuesday.
All winners will be announced on the challenge blog, although some of the design team may also post their winners details on their own blogs too.

I'm the last dt stop on the list, now you just have to hop over to the Digital Tuesday challenge blog and leave a comment to let us know you have finished the hop :)

Here's a list of the hop order in case you loose your way

Hello my friend, I finally got a chance to go hopping, you'd have thought being snowed in as we are I would have been by sooner, unfortunately the rest of my family gets snowed in with me, lol! I LOVE the Stickles, she just glimmers, the exact way a mermaid should. Beautiful!
