Mystery Hop - ha!!

This is my first ever blog hop with Make It Crafty fab design team. They have some absolutely gorgeous new images that you will be able to incorporate with all of your favourite characters. They have been designed for ‘Spring and Love’ so they are perfect for Valentine’s Day, Anniversaries, Weddings, Friendships and more.

It is well worth to do the whole hop - there are secret prizes all the way (all you need to do is leave a lil' comment on all blogs and quite a lot of us have prizes to give draw...but we won't tell you, who! :p) AND THERE'S A BIG_BIG SURPRIZE AND A WHOPPIN' PRIZE TO WIN AT THE END OF IT!!! So if you didn't get here from Angela's blog then head over to Zoe's Blog to start from the beginning.

I promise it's gonna be well worth it! Seriously! All I can say is that we are starting a new and a very exciting adventure with a bunch of humblingly talented gals!! :) I will give more information on the prizes and blog hop details further on!

Here is my little inspiration for you today:
I am using one of the gorgeous new backgrounds called The Ivy Swing and...erm...a Tilda. I honestly don't know her name, it was the only suitable sitting Magnolia I had! lol Maybe some of you are very knowledgeable and will let me know... :)
I kept my card very simple because I wanted the gorgeous images to take the center stage, All the colouring is done with Copics. Didn't write everything down, but the purples are all RV90-ies. Love those muted aubergine hues with blue greens - yum!

BLOG HOP DETAILS
How to win the big prizes
Along the way you need to look for puzzle pieces. They won’t be on every post so you need to keep an eye out for them. The puzzle pieces make up one of the NEW images. At the end of the hop there will be an email form where you can submit your answer. This is so that your answer is private.
All the correct answers will be placed into a draw in the order that they are received and random winners will be chosen.
Here is your SECOND puzzle Piece

Leave comments to win random prizes
There are SEVEN hidden prizes along the way that could be rubber or digital stamps so make sure you leave a comment as you hop to ensure you have a chance at winning additional prizes!
Extra Prize
Place our blog hop blinkie on your blog for more chances to win! Make sure you comment on every post as we will randomly select a commenter from a random post and if they have the blinkie on their blog they will win a choice of one rubber stamp and one digi stamp from the new collection.

Over $200 Worth of Prizes to be Won!!
1st prize - Rubber Collection (Peaches of Plenty, Petals and Palings, Daffodil Dell, Ivy Swing)
2nd prize - Whole Digital Collection (10 digital stamps)
3rd Prize - Four digital Stamps from the collection
The hop will end Friday 24th and the main winners will be announced Christmas Day!
Random winners will be announced at a later date.

Your next stop on the hop is fabulous BARBARA, the overachiever extraordinaire!!

I'd like to enter these challenges:
Totally Tilda - For the one you love
Sweet Stampin' - Celebrations
Allsorts - Anything Goes
Crafty Pad - Embossing (you can't see it properly, but the Tilda is shaped and embossed)

WOW Annika.. you are sooo talented! I love the cloud background and your awesome coloring on Tilda.. Perfect! The border around the card looks fantastic and so does the ribbon! Thanks for this great hop, hopping to the next blog now. hugsss xx Marley

Sharon Keanly said...

With huge respect to all the other crafters out there... I think this must be one of the most BEAUTIFUL cards I have ever seen in blogland. The colours, as you mention Annika, are a stunning combination. I think I need Copic colouring lessons from you. This is a fabulous piece of work. Love this Tilda..uhm, I am also clueless to her name, but she's a beauty and compliments your background image perfectly. Not sure how you've done the clouds, but it's stunning! hugs Sharon

Tara said...

OMG lady!!! Words are failing me..... this is truly A-W-E-S-O-M-E!! You might know I would adore these new backgrounds with my Tilda addiction, lol! You have done the most amazing job and your colouring is divine, especially the sky!!! Thanks so much for the inspiration friend and I hope you are well ;o)
Big hugs, Tara xx

Annika I'm very glad that we are as a team. I have long known of your work:))) My special love is when you paint on kraft paper.

It's very interesting what you learn Russian. For Ireland it is exotic, as I think :))))

I want to answer your question about cutting out circles of thick cardboard. I bought a special circular cutter Olfa Circle Cutter. This intsrument not skrapbooking. This cutter cuts the cardboard thickness of 2 mm is very easy. I showed them how to work in his blog. Look, if you're interested. I often cut into circles:)))
