It's a Celebration Blog Hop & Weekly Challenge | Red White & Blue!!

Hello everyone and welcome to the Digital Delights It's a Celebration Blog Hop 30June-1July 2011. This is a 2 day hop to help you get through all 26 of our talented designers, collect your letters and enter to win the grand prize!

If you came here from Larelyn's blog then you are in the right spot! If you have just come across this posting while browsing around in blog land then start at the top so you don't miss all of the amazing projects!

The theme of this hop is CELEBRATIONS!! At Digital Delights by Louby Loo, we are celebrating the new store! Wendy (aka Louby Loo) just completed the move to a new and improved store! In honor of this, each stop along the way will have a Digital Delights stamp from their project to be given away. There are amazing sponsors for the grand prize at the end worth over  $130!!

This is a hop with a different twist as along the hop there are letters to find in the postings - not all blogs have the letters but if you gather all the letters then at the end of the hop on day 2 assemble them to create a Digital Delights related word. You then return to the Digital Delights blog and enter your name in the inlinks at the bottom of the post (do not reveal the secret word yet). After the hop you will be contacted if you are selected at random--at which point you will be asked to reveal the correct word/phrase.

Now on to my project.
For this card, you guessed it, I used GIMP to put Lara into the Postage Stamp!  I also used Wendy's new stripes and spots papers and the wonderful sentiment! A friend of mine on the Festive Friday Blog Hop inspired this card design--I changed it and made it my own but Laura's card is where I got the inspiration!
 Cardstock and Papers: Bazzill Basics and Stripes and Spots Digital Paper Pack
Markers : BIC Mark-Its
Accessories : Prisma Glitter, Quickie Glue Pen, foam dots, ribbon

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you liked my project.

For this week's challenge we want to see


You do not have to use a Digital Delights image to play but if you do you will receive two entries. Just add your card twice to inlinkz to enter twice you need to when you use a Digital Delights image 1st entry use your card link, 2nd entry use your blog address and add 2nd entry after your name.

This weeks challenge is sponsored by:

Now back to the hop - I can now reveal that I do NOT have a hidden letter. Remember to collect all the letters from the hop and assemble to form a Digital Delights related word then return to the Digital Delights blog to enter.
