Follow Your Dreams Blog Hop

Welcome to the Digi Design House FIRST EVER Blog Hop!!!! (If you're looking for the TSB Challenge for today, scroll down.) Today, we are Following our Dreams wherever they may take us.  If you came here from Mandi-Lee's blog, I'm sure you were blown away at what she did, but you're right on track.  If not, you'll want to start at the DDH Blog, and be sure to leave some love on each blog, because there is FREE STUFF up for grabs! Three mystery Design Team members will be giving away the Cool Chicks set from Digi Design House to a random commenter on their blog post. You have until 6:00PM CST on Thursday, March 3 to comment. At 6:01PM, the number of comments will be tallied, and the random number generator will do its magic to pick the winner. You don't know which team members have the candy, so make sure you comment on EACH stop in the hop. Additionally, all of the names of our faithful (those of you who comment on EVERY stop on the hop) will be put in a hat to draw an additional set! Oh yes, we are giving away FOUR FREE STAMP SETS!
Your next stop on the hop will be Nancy's blog for more wonderful eye candy.  In the meantime, I'd like to share my little project and a little about myself with you...

For me, all of my dreams seem to tie back to winning the lottery.  I want to go on a year-long cruise, which takes (quite a bit of) money. I want to own every Copic ever made (working on that one, anyway).  I want to adopt every shelter dog and put puppy mills out of business.  You get the idea, right?  So, I thought I would gather a little luck of the Irish with my card.  Both images are from the Celtic Images set. Both, you say? Yes, both!  The background paper was made by yours truly!  The image is a repeat pattern of the Celtic Knot image, then colored with Spica pens, which seemed like a good idea until about the 3rd row   I tried VERY hard to get the shimmer on this card for you, and I think you tell just how sparkly it is.  The background is colored with 6 different Spicas, so you get the idea.


Now, head over to see what Nancy's dreams are (warning - be seated because it's a stunner with a tutorial!!!)... Enjoy!
