Challenge # 7 : Wedding card and a Blog Hop

Hi Peeps – Susan here (instead of Hilde) today with some exciting news.

As well as our normal Challenge #7 (Weddings), we are having a HOP!


We have all these goodies made available to us from all our wonderful sponsors and we thought we would just give ‘em away to you! And it will be FUN! To see what the wonderful team at Crafting with Dragonflies has come up with this time - you have to HOP from blog to blog in the order below.  

As well as making our theme for the Challenge WEDDINGS, where you can show us your beautiful Wedding cards, our theme for the HOP is also (surprise, surprise)


This is what is going to happen in the BLOG HOP:

    1.   You will start from here and go on the Hop in this order - and you will get to see our wonderful creations for this HOP:

If you lose your way just come back here and start again or go from where you first remember being lost (LOL)!

    2.  We will publish on our blogs a Wedding themed card/item and tell you something about weddings – maybe our own weddings – and something of a tradition that happen in the Western world around weddings – there might even be pictures!

    3.  You will visit and read our rantings blog entry, and maybe you will pick up a clue – a particular WORD -  put there deliberately by each of us for you to find

    4.  You will leave some love for the DT member in the comments and at the end of the HOP period, each DT will select a winner from their individual blog for a DT BLOG PRIZE

    5.  You will very cleverly work out what the various clues are on the various blogs and collect them as you hop

    6.  When you get back to here, you will look at these words and realise that they fit very snugly into a traditional rhyme about WEDDINGS – clue: something...........something..........something.........something..........and a...........    ................ in my................

    7.   There are SEVEN words to be found

    8.   Leave a comment on this blog AND send me an email to, with the words in the rhyme. Please put BLOG HOP in the subject line.

    9.   Remember DO NOT put the rhyme in the comments section of this blog! Send me an email with it and I will collect all the correct ones and then randomly select a winner for the OVERALL PRIZE.

    Our Sponsors for this HOP - remember, most of these prizes will be on the individual blogs but  one will be on the main blog. The winner of the rhyme puzzle will also get a prize.

Bugaboo - 7 digi's of winners choice
Meljens - $10 Gift Certificate 

Di's Digi Designs - $10 Gift Certificate 
Digistamps4joy - $15 Gift Certificate 

Kenny K - 1  image

So, are you going to go on this journey with us?  What are you waiting for?
