Polka Doodles Give Thanks Challenge & BLOG HOP!!!!

The Blog Hop has now finished so please be aware that any further comments cannot be counted.

Good morning everyone, it's Friday again and today is the big day as Polka Doodles is having a BLOG HOP to say thank you to all the lovely followers and challenge entrants. There are loads of prizes on offer as we've all got CANDY from Nikky and some of us (me included!) have added some more.

To be in with a chance of winning some of this fabulous candy, you need to visit each of the design teams blogs and leave a comment. We each have a letter for you to collect along the way which you will need to unscramble to make a word and then leave the answer in the COMMENTS section of this weeks challenge post (there won't be any visible comments!)

The hop starts now and will end at 12 noon on Sunday 28 November. And now I'm sure you'd like to see the prizes you might win just by taking part and leaving me a comment.
This is Nikky's fabulous candy - a Paper Boutique CD, some seasonal stamps, green festive Fru Fru ribbons and red Dew Drops. Those ribbons and dew drops look even better in the flesh so to speak.
I've added these embellishments as a thank you for all the lovely comments that you leave me which is also the subject of my card for this week's challenge.

I chose to make a step card with my favourite Flutterby Fairy stamp, Gracie, and stamped her and 2 butterflies with black pigment ink and then embossed them with clear powder. With my eyesight it makes them easier to colour!
I coloured her and the butterflies (one for her wings) with various Promarkers and then embossed the wings with Jewelled Gold embossing powder and the butterfly with Crystal embossing powder.
I made up the step card and decorated it with papers from the Sundae of Seasons CD which I think is my favourite so far.  I finished off with some pearls and a computer generated sentiment.

Now, back to the blog hop and if you haven't come here from Tracie's Blog then you need to go to the START which is at Tracy's, Country Mouse, Blog.
You don't have to do this but it will save you getting lost on the way and missing out on those prizes!

There's also another surprise as Nikky has generously decided to give anyone making a purchase from the Polka Doodles online shop between now and 12 noon on 28 November a fantastic 10% discount. To take advantage of this, you need to enter the code HOPPITYHOP10 at the checkout.

Now I'm sure you want to know what my letter is and it's O and your next stop on the hop is
This is Nikky's new blog so make sure you follow her too to catch up on all the Polka Doodles news and gossip.
The next show is on 26 November so don't forget to watch as there are some fabulous new goodies of my favourite sort (big clue!) about to launch so you don't want to miss it!
