Prairie Fairy Valentine's Challenge and Blog Hop!



Welcome...

to Prairie Fairy's 1st DT Blog Hop! If you came here from Pink Lilac's blog then you are on the right track! If you would like to start at the top of the hop, start HERE.

Here is my creation for this week's challenge and hop!

I used the adorable Roopid Prairie Fairy Digital Stamp for an altered V-Day project for our son! I love recycling/upcycling as much as possible and this little container was a Planter's peanut can in a former life...now, it holds some of our son's fav candy! I used my Prisma pencils to color Roberta's cute little image, which I matted with Bazzill and Paper Studio cardstock. I also added some ice Stickles to Roopid's wings and the heart. The patterned paper on the can is from Target...their $ spot, I believe! The ribbon is AC and the flowers are a Prima mix with rhinestone centers. But not only is the can recycled, but the scrunchy filler stuff (yep, that's my for it word - lol!) is as well, several times over to be exact! It was originally some old paper that was put through a shredder, corrugated, and stuffed in an SU goodie bag I received at a friend's house quite awhile back. I decided to re-purpose it too and am so glad I saved it!


Now, on to the hop! Here is the hop list:

The hop begins at midnight tonight and will last until 9 p.m. Valentines Day. From midnight tonight through midnight Friday, there will also be a FREE Prairie Fairy Digital Stamp you can download at the Prairie Fairy Digital Group. The winner of the hop will receive all of this:

PLUS four Prairie Fairy Digital Stamps! How cool is that! All you need to do to win is:

Leave a comment at all the hop spots for 1 entry.

Become a follower of our challenge group for a second entry.

Join the PCP group for a 3rd entry.

Earn 5 entries if you show us a new creation that has a Valentines theme

and uses a Prairie Fairy image!!!!!

But that is not all! I am also giving away some blog candy....for not one, but two winners! For a chance to win my candy, all you have to do is leave me a comment and become a follower! I will also draw two winners on Sunday and announce the winner on Monday! Happy Scrappin'!

Well, congratulations on the first Prairie Fairy DT Blog Hop. I’d made a note to myself to have a go at this tonight or tomorrow.

What a gorgeous card. Thank you for the chance of winning some blog candy. I'd love to be in with a chance of winning as I'd put it to good use for my cards that I make for charity.

Best wishes, Kym xxx
