My Heart Pieces - Blog Hop and Challenge #2

We had an overwhelming number of participants join in the fun of  the very First Challenge at My Heart Pieces  this past fortnight.  Who doesn't love an Anything Goes Challenge right?  The lucky winner will be announced shortly but today marks another first for My Heart Pieces and the DT.

We are having our very first blog hop.  If you are already hopping with us you would have found your way here from Cindy's Blog, but if you are starting on this very page, I would suggest that you be sure to make your way back to the start of our hop (see links below)  and continue through the list of names.

If you are not sure how a hop works, you just need to follow the links to each DT members blog, where you will find their latest creation for our next Challenge which is FLOWERS.

We want to see at least one handmade flower on your card and if you like you may wish to include an explanation of how you made it.

At each stop along the way you will find lots of wonderful inspiration and we ask that you leave some love on each of the blogs.  There will be a prize for one lucky person who leaves a comment on every blog.

My card today uses the My Heart Pieces Image called Summer, I have colored the image with my Tria Markers (very rough strokes and blending to give a more watercolor feel) and some ink which I have sponged on with my sponge daubers.  My handmade flower was made using my Scallop Circle and Smaller Circle Punches.

Thanks for stopping by, I do hope you will play along with our new Challenge, and for those of you hopping with us its time to visit Deanne here.
