Make It Crafty - Mo's Digital Pencil Blog Hop

Clowns, cotton candy, sticky fingers, squeals of delight and of course complaints of sore feet near the end of the day. And funnel cake, you can't forget the funnel cake! Where are we?

THE CARNIVAL!!

Hopefully you have just hopped on over from Mindy.If you just popped on by to say Hi and want to join us on the super carnival hop then you’ll want to ‘START HERE

Zoe from Make it Crafty and Mo from Mo’s Digital Pencil, came together to share the delight and fun of The Carnival. To celebrate - the two fabulously talented teams have come together for a massive blog hop to offer you plenty of inspiration when playing with these images.

Along the way you will find balloons with a letter in them. Write down the letters as you go because at the very end we want you to guess what the saying is!

There will be THREE grand prizes randomly drawn from the correct answers PLUS there will be hidden prizes along the way so make sure you leave some love as you hop along!

Now we know this is a super big hop, but we wanted to make sure you would get LOTS of inspiration! The hop will be open until the 28thApril so you will have plenty of time to come back each day with a Diet Coke (or caffeinated beverage of your choice) to soak it all up! (Just don’t lose the letters you have been collecting!)

We would like to thank our fabulous sponsors, Mo’s Digital Pencil, Make it Crafty, Stamping Bella and Quixotic Paperie for providing the fabulous prizes for this grand carnival hop!

Here's my card. I wanted to try something outside my comfort zone. The front of the card features Claire from Mo's Digital Pencil. She's so sweet! I colored her in a black and white style.

Here's the first flap of the card open. The black and white flap says dream. This sweet clown is JoJo from Mo's Digital Pencil. The paper is from Basic Grey.And here's the card fully open. The full sentiment is "Dream In Color." The circus tent is from Make It Crafty. It was so much fun to color. I added a marquee saying "Starring You." All of the images are colored with Copics.My letter is:
In case you have trouble seeing my balloon – my letter is “F”. I hope not, I couldn't think of a good hiding place, so it's just here : ) Make sure you leave a comment for a ‘possible’ chance at winning some hidden treasure and then your next stop on the hop is Tracy.

Happy Crafting!

Jennifer
