The Character Cafe Blog Hop!

Guess who is the guest DT for The Character Cafe this month?? Me! They gave me the wonderful image of "Poppies" (the flowers - NOT puppies). The first thought that came to mind was Dorothy, the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Man and the Scarecrow falling asleep in the field of poppies after the Wicked Witch of the West cast a spell. Glinda, the good witch, saved them by conjuring up some snow flurries. Now maybe this is just because I live (at least part time) in Kansas or maybe because The Wizard of Oz was a favorite of my children when they were little.

On to the Blog Hop information: If you arrived here from the Character Cafe then you are on the right track. The line-up is:
                       The Character Cafe
                       Guest DT Mary Ski @ Purrfect Sentiments 
                       The Cafe Blog

Please leave a comment at each blog you visit. Each DT member will draw from the comments and give that person the image showcased on that particular blog. Check back next Friday, July 9th to see if you are a winner.

  • We are offering a sale to our readers:  BUY 6 images for $5.00!!!!  The sale will last through Friday, July 9th 
  • Grand prize is 2 new release images and $5 gift certificate to The CafĂ© store.
  • Hoppers can create a project using any TCC image and link to us for a chance to be Guest Designer for August (Guest Designer will receive 2 images to work with for the month).
If you like what you see, please become a follower of the Character Cafe (and any of the DT members) or join our webstore for the newsletter. Above all - Have Fun!! The best part of Blog Hops is seeing a variety of techniques and styles. There should be at least one and probably many inspirations along the way.

I'm still rather blase about blog hops. I start, then I get confused, and give up. The I did involve my self in had the greatest turtle throughout many of the blogs. Silly me didn't try to figure out what company made it. But I'm giving it an all american try again.
