MyGraphico is having a Blog Hop!!

First of all, MyGrafico is up and running again.....YEA!!!! The site was down getting some maintenance and it is now up, running and full of grafic yumminess!! So, me and the other DT members at the MyGraphico challenge blog are having a blog hop to celebrate the updated and wonderful store! Now, aren't you glad you stopped by today???

Here are all of the details of the hop. It's a bit long, but hang in there, 'cause it's well worth it!


1. To start the hop, you need to go to Martha's blog. If you came here first, be sure to go back to Martha's blog to start off.

2. Then follow the hop and be on the look-out for a LETTER to be highlighted on each blog you hop to!

3. You want to leave a comment on each blog Along the way to win an image from the Candy Shoppe set (see below).

4. You Also want to collect the letters to create a phrase.

5. Once you know what the phrase is, you want to email your guess to mccreations@ ymail.com by 10:00 pm (PST) tonight and you could be the winner of the entire set!

Here's my card for this week's kick-off celebrAtion!

The challenge was to use an image from the above set and the colors RED, PINK, and GREEN. I printed the large cherries on some white cardstock then red and then again on green. I cut out the cherries and the leaves from the red and green cardstock. Then, I ran the leaves thru the Cuttlebug with the circles embossing folder. Then, I paper pieced the cherries and leaves. I added some Glossy Accents to the cherries to shine them up a bit. The cake was cut using my Cricut and the Wedding Solutions cartridge. The drippy icing is a Martha Stewart border punch. I added a bit of Stickles to the scalloped parts of the cake. I also used a Martha punch on the green border and ran that thru the Cuttlebug as well using the Swirls folder. I added a rub-on, a computer generated sentiment and a cute little flower/ribbon brad. Easy peasy!! I love the MyGraphico digi images because they are so, so cute AND so easy to work with.

Now..........I will be giving away the large cherries image from the set below to a random person chosen from every one that leaves me a comment on THIS POST TODAY. And did you find my featured (highlighted) letter? Keep collecting letters during your hopping to create a phrAse and email to the address above by 10:00 pm PST TONIGHT to win this entire set:

I loveeeeeeeeee the cherries. I have been looking for a stamp, but I had already come to the conclusion that I would have to purchase it or a digi-stamp on-line. I sure hope I get picked.
