AiFactory Blog Hop - You Say Goodbye, I Say Hello

Morning everyone, today's the start of AiFactory's Blog Hop to say goodbye to some of the Design Team and welcome the new members. Just read on for the fabulous prizes if you do the hop and leave comments on everyone's blog hop post.

We've all been given some of Mia's new images to use and mine is the cute Rock Climbing Digital Stamp Set and here's what I made:

I made a gate fold card using a rock background paper which I made myself from a holiday photo of the inside of a cave. I experimented by using the poster option on Photoshop and was thrilled to bits when it turned the rocks gorgeous shades of purple, pink and green (the original was a rather boring brown!).
I printed out the cute little boy and girl climbers and the ropes in the set, coloured them with Promarkers and cut them out. I arranged them on one side of the gatefold and added text to the other.

I'm sure you'd like to know about the prizes and how to get them so here's the all important information:
Prize 1 ~  Drawn from random DT Members comments $20 Gift Certificate. All you need to do here is make sure you leave a comment on each of the blogs you visit to be in with a chance of winning this.

Prize 2 ~ Scrambled Word Prize...Each DT Member has been assigned a letter (mine is T) and to be in with a chance of winning here, you need to collect all the letters and unscramble them to make a phrase. You then need to email the answer to angievcortes@gmail.com and she will be drawing a winner for a $10 Gift Certificate.

Prize 3 ~ There are also random freebies scattered throughout the hop provided by Mia so you need to keep hopping to find those.

You should have come here from Cheri's blog but if you didn't then go to the AiFactory Challenge Blog to find the hopping order.If you did come from Cheri then the next blog in the hop is
Brandy so pop on over and give her a welcome to the DT.
Good luck and happy hopping!

  10. My goodness Felicity, you are an amazing woman!! Love the rock background. I have recently played with 'encaustic art' (melting wax) and that too would make a great background for the climbers! Thanks for sharing your talent:)
