Winners from Challenge 14- Sketch It

Hi everyone.
I am sorry for the dely in announcing last week's winners. I am in the middle of moving houses and my brain has apparently been boxed up along with some other items. LOL I should unpack it somewhere about the middle of August. :)

The entries from the Sketch challenge were totally fantastic!! It is amazing to see so many wonderful differences even given a basic guide....I loved it!

I will be emailing prizes and badges on Saturday, but without further ado, our lovely chosen entries for this week are:

(in no particular order)
(selected by random.org)

Thanks again for playing along and we look forward to seeing your princess cards for Challenge 15 posted on August 9. Until then, have a great week! :)

Challenge #15 -Fit for a Princess


Hello majestic ladies! :) Since we are all truly princesses at heart (well, actually I usually view myself as the queen LOL), we have a challenge for your inner royal personage this week.
Make a project or a card that is fit for a princess/queen. Since all that pink and pretty takes time, we have decided to make this a 2-week challenge. Your princess card will be due August 9 at 10 PM---that is an extra week.

Be sure to use a Tiddly Inks image and should you need a new princess...there are a few here. :)

Go forth, your majesties and make a card fit for you, your little princess, or your royal self! See you in two weeks with your final project, but in the mean time, please enjoy the amazing Tiddly Inkers creations.

Blog Hop Round Up

Wow, wow, wow!! I was so super duper impressed by the entries and DT creations on this blog hop. It was so exciting to open a new page and go WOW!!! I think I said that on almost every page..plus giggling out loud and grinning like an idiot in the middle of a public place (where I happened to be doing my browsing). I think I might even have talked to myself, but by then the people around me were ignoring me. LOL You ladies blew halloween out of the water! There was cute; there was spooky and everything in between. :) It was reeaaallly wonderful. :)

I especially wanted to thank the design team....amazing, amazing creations, ladies. :)

I am including the random winners of the gift vouchers at the end of the post, but first I wanted to showcase our featured bloggers- I thought I would just pick two, but there were so many amazing projects, I went with a Top 5. :) Each of the following five bloggers will receive a $10 gift voucher by email and they may proudly display this badge on their blog:


Our Top 5 bloggers from the Halloween Hop (in no particular order) are:


I also chose a new guest for the design team. I wish I could have chosen more than one, but as I had to pick only one, I picked that amazing box of scenes and creations lovingly made by:

Congratulations Nancy. :)

Nancy will be joining us on the design team, so you can find her next wild and crazy project on the challenge blog. :)

I used random.org to help me choose the following random winners (your gift vouchers will be emailed to you).
From my blog, the selected commenter was #31

From a randomly selected blog (Beth of Inky Fingers), the selected commenter was #8

Another and final huge thank you to everyone who participated. I thoroughly enjoyed this blog hop and I hope you did too. :)

Halloween is Hoppin' in July! Blog Hop is Today!!

So glad you made it today for our spooktacular, magical blog hop. We can't wait to see your fantastic halloween creations, so go right ahead and link them on up after you read this short introduction! :)

The order of the hop will be determined by the Inlinkz list, which closes today at 6 PM. After that, you can hop around at your leisure until July 24.
Two random commentors will be chosen to receive a $5 gift voucher for shopping at Tiddly Inks. Two participant bloggers will be featured on July 25 (and receive a $10 gift voucher each) and one lucky person may be offered a one-month long guest spot on the design team.

The neat thing about the Inlinkz list is that it opens a new window to view the entries, so you don't have to have the list on each blog...makes it a lot easier to organize and visit. Have fun hopping around. :)

So you have your card ready? Yippe! Go ahead and link them and then come back tonight (or later) and view all the spooky goodies. Yahoo!

Here is the list of the Tiddly Inkers blogs.
You can start there if you like, but be sure to come back once the Inlinkz list is closed. :)

How the Blog Hop will Work Tomorrow

It is almost time...for the blog hop that is. :) Can I do a little happy dance??? LOL

We are doing the Halloween hop a little differently, but it is simpler I hope. What does this mean?

1) Make your card ahead of time and post it your blog (I plan to schedule mine for 7/22/2010 at 12 PM CST --noon).
2) After it is live on your blog, come here and paste the URL/blog address in the Inlinkz box (our blog post will be up at 12 PM CST--noon).
3) Wait until 6 PM when we close the Inlinkz list, and then come back here and visit all the entries in the Inlinkz list. When you click on each entry, it should open a new window with the blogger's card and entry...kinda cool, huh? It means we don't have to direct you to the next blog.... just stay on the challenge blog to keep "hopping" around the entries.
4) Hop around and visit the cards. :)

The DT members will have their amazing cards listed at 12 PM CST, but the full blog hop STARTS AT 6 PM CST after eveyone has a chance to list their cards. :) The hop ends July 24, and we have planned a party on the PCP page from 6 PM until 10 PM on July 24, so please stop by. You can find all the prize details here. :)

If this doesn't make sense or you have questions, just email me or leave me a note. :)
XOXO

We would love it if you posted the badge below or a note about the hop on your blog ahead of time....help us get the word out. :) There will be a release of images on July 19 and those images will be on sale for a few days so that you can get a project created for the hop. :) Please have your card or project ready by July 22, so that you can join in.
