DeNami Blog Hop - Girlie Girl



Welcome to DeNami's Blog Hop for May and Happy Mother's Day to everyone. You should have arrived from Andrea Matthew's Blog. Andrea is a member of the design team and always has wonderful creations posted on her blog. If you get lost along the way, return the DeNami's blog and you'll find the link to join back in the hop.

The details for the hop are:

When: The blog hop starts on May 8 at 6 AM, PST. However, you have until May 9, 2011, 11:59 pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for a prize).

Why: To be inspired by beautiful girlie creations featuring DeNami Design stamps and also the chance to win mini shopping sprees on the DeNami Design website!

Prizes: We are giving away THREE $20 gift certificates to our website! We'll be giving away one gift certificate to a random participant (DT members not eligible) and then we'll also be giving away TWO gift certificates to TWO people who comment along the hop!



This was a fun challenge - so many possibilities. Of course the first thing I thought of was clothes and shoes. I have two other cards I'll post as extra entries in the bonus round but the card I've chosen for the hop is about a love affair between girls and chocolate. I have a section of my stamps devoted to words/phrases and there is a portion just for girlie stuff and another for chocolate.

Another phrase that fits well with this Mimi stamp is "There's nothing better than a good friend except a good friend with chocolate". So true.

The card includes DeNami brown card stock, discontinued Stampin' Up! Blush Blossom, Stampin' Up! Ivory Naturals, Mimi with her box of chocolates, Memento Rich Cocoa ink, Stampin' Up! tulip border embossing folder, Copics for color and lots of A Muse Pretty Pearls. Can you have too many pearls?

For those that want to post a girlie creation but didn't get a spot in the hop, you can enter your work on DeNami's blog this week. The winner is guaranteed a spot in the next hop.

Next stop: Another wonderful artist on the DeNami Design Team, Ayana Posadas. Enjoy!

  13. (Okay, blogger is having issues today, I keep getting 'Error 404' - so this is my 3rd attempt at posting this, LOL). I really like your card, it is 'sweet' in more ways than one. Not only do I like those adorable DeNami chocolate images, but I think the little chocolates you added are precious as well. I hope you are having a Happy Mother's Day!
