Friends Are the Flowers of Life - A Tiddly Blog Hop!!!


YAY - it's hop time!!! This just isn't any old hop though - this is a Tiddly Inks blog hop - so the hop list grows and grows!!!  First, I'll share my creation with you and I'll add the details later.
The theme for the hop is "Friends are the flowers of life"....so I just had to use this little sweety - Wryn - Grow A Little Love!
The sentiment though on my card really speaks to me about friendship.
I apologize for the poor lighting on this photo - I was having issues with my photo tent and my lights for some reason!!!  Anyhow, I used paper from My Minds Eye and the sentiment is from My Craft Spot.  I thought this card was a perfect combo for our theme!  Now here are the rest of the hop details!!!

Theme: Friends are the Flowers of Life: Use any Tiddly Inks digital image to create a card or project and participate in the blog hop

How to Participate:  
This is actually a 4-step process: 

One, you have to make the card in advance using a Tiddly Inks image, preferably with friends or flowers as the theme, but it is open to any TI image.  Just have fun! :)

Two, post your photo and information on your own personal blog on January 13 before 12 PM CST--and at least by 5:45 PM CST---so you can meet the 6-hour window to enter the blog hop. The title of your post should be "Friends are the Flowers of Life - Tiddly Inks Blog Hop".

Three, once your blog post is live, visit the Tiddly Inks challenge blog (our enrollment list will be open for 6 hours--see times below) and link your blog hop post at the bottom of the "Flowers" Blog Hop post (there will be an Inlinkz list) in order to be qualified for the prizes. There is no need to sign up in advance---just have a post ready to link. 

Four, the enrollment time will close at 6:00 PM (and hopefully we have about 30 to 40 people who linked) and then we hop around and view their cards---and your card---from the list on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog. Sounds like fun, right? Last time we had a hundred-plus people coming around and commenting and it was fun!! :)


Dates:  
6:00 PM CST on Friday January 13 to 6:00 PM CST on Saturday January 14

The blog hop will run until January 14 at 6:00 PM. We will have a wrap-up "party" on January 14 in the Tiddly Inks PCP group from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM CST. Stop in and chat with us in the comment section at the bottom of the page. Between 6 PM and 10 PM CST, one lucky PCP commenter will be randomly selected to receive the next 2 Tiddly Inks stamps before anyone else (free of charge).
Prizes: Two blogger participants selected from the Tiddly Inks Inlinkz list will be announced on January 15 and highlighted on the TI challenge blog. Each will receive a $10 gift voucher.

There will also be random prizes throughout the DT blogs, so be sure to comment and visit each one. :)

  2. Tee hee, that sentiment is so true. How stinkin' glorious is your Wryn's hair, so gob-smacked right now. We all have seemed to perfect her with blonde hair, but your brunette hair is the best I've seen thus far.
