The Character Cafe' Blog Hop!




WOO HOO! It's the premiere of the new design team for The Character Cafe', and the premiere of new releases! Kendra and Kelly have been hard at work getting this new release ready for you, so sit back, relax, and enjoy the hop!

Let's get some business out of the way, and then I'll give you the hop order, and of course my creation for today. First-there is a code for you to get 30% off of all the new releases, and that is "OctBlogHop" without the quotations. This code is good from Friday Oct. 2nd through Friday Oct. 9th. Next, of course you need to visit every one's blogs and leave a comment. There will be a freebie along the way, never know where it is! Each DT member will choose one winning name to win the image that they have used. And-drum roll please-Kelly and Kendra will pick one name from the comments on The Cafe' Blog to win the grand prize of ALL of the new releases. Also, if you post on your blog or a forum about our hop you will get another entry. If the winner has already won a new image from the DT blogs, they may choose an older image.

Ok, now if you've come across my blog from Dianne's, then you are on the right track. From here you will need to go to Deanne's.

Finally onto my project. I kinda got bored doing just cards, and decided to do something different. Of course I didn't get a chance to do anything until today, and then couldn't decide what I wanted to do-what's new! So here I am at the last minute trying to get this done. I found this cute little template for a Christmas Tree Box here. I got to use this cute little snowman image. I love snowmen, so this was perfect for me. Although, I wanted to use all of the new images. I printed the template and put it all together. It was very easy! I made a tag with the snowman image to attach to the top of the box. The box is actually supposed to be used as an ornament, which I think is really cute. I used DCWV dp from the Christmas stack. I made the stars in Microsoft office, added some jewel stars and glitter, and voila'. HERE it is! Now onto the blog hop order in case you get lost along the way.
Just wanted to let you know that The Character Cafe does have a new website, but due to some unexpected technical difficulty, you will be able to get there from the home page of the old one that is linked above. Have a wonderful day, enjoy the hop, and we can't wait to see what you create with all these wonderful images.
