The Character Cafe Release Day and a Blog Hop


Good morning, hope all is well with you. Today is the 2nd Blog Hop for TCC. So if you came here from TCC's DT page, then your are on the right track. Now from here you will go to Mary's blog. From there she will have a link to where you go next. Remember you have to go on the hop in order to collect the code. Everyone will have 1 piece of the code and you have to have them in order. The code will be good for 30% off. And don't forget that one person along the way will have a "freebie". Don't forget to leave a comment for all the wonderful work along the way. Now, onto my card. I'm using the new release called "Ty the Lemonade Guy". Isn't he such a boy! I love his little frog in the jar, totally reminds me of my son, Jesse. He' s always bringing something home to keep in a jar. I gotta tell you that this card was a lot of work for me. I don't usually do boy cards, and now I know why. I think I just need to go buy some boy paper, it would probably help alot! I'm sure my husband will love that-lol! Anyway, I colored him with my copics, and added some ink around the edges. The CS is bazzill, and DP is DCWV. I added the buttons which totally made the card, in my opinion.

Now, my piece of the code is the number "8", and don't forget you have to have them in order for them to work. There will be drawings for prizes also, but you do have to leave a comment on every blog along the way, and at the TCC blog as the last stop. So have fun, and get some great new images!

You did a great job on your "Boy" card. I love it and he also reminds me of my son who is now in his 40's when he was little. He loved to "sell" koolaid.
