Delicious Doodles Challenge is back with a Blog Hop

 Today is a happy day for Teri and all the Design Team members of Delicious Doodles as we are back.  The Delicious Doodles Store shut at the end of December 2014 due to the new EU ruling on VAT that came in on 1 January 2015.  
Thankfully Teri has managed to set up a Delicious Doodles Etsy Shop where her images can be purchased and this means the Delicious Doodles Challenge is up-and-running.

The challenge will run on a monthly basis and the first challenge topic is "anything goes".

To celebrate the re-starting of the Challenge Blog we are having a Blog Hop but you MUST enter the challenge in order to be in with a chance of winning the prize of the Blog Hop.

What is a Blog Hop?  
You will see a list below and you will work your way through the list visiting the Design Team members and commenting on their card/creation and then you move onto the next person on the list.  

Here is the order of the Blog Hop:

The prize for the winning comment from the Blog Hop will win an amazing 6 images of their choice from the Delicious Doodles images from the Etsy Store.

Now who wouldn't want to win that?  There are run-of-the-mill images but then there are those "on the darker side" images so plenty for all tastes and ages.

If you are looking at my card (Kym Upshaw) you will have visited the blog of Lozzy Tickner.
 For my card I have used the Delicious Doodles image called "Beautiful Blossom".  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and highlighted the centres of the flowers with Tim Holtz's Spiced Marmalade Distress Stickles.

I decided to go for a bright and cheery colour scheme of orange, yellow and green and I have used backing papers from Summertime Designs.

I have finished the card off with a butterfly edge die-cut (I love this die and it cuts like a dream through my Cuttlebug), die-cut butterfly coloured over with chalks, die-cut sentiment, flowers, gems, ribbon, doily and a button.

Thank you for taking part in the Delicious Doodles Blog Hop.

Now you have visited my blog the next blog for you to visit is that of Avril Watson.
