Welcome to the June DeNami Blog Hop!  This month's theme is 'Cards for Guys'. The particulars about the hop are listed below.



Who can join: Anyone who has a DeNami stamp and can create a "guy" card.

When does it happen: The blog hop starts on June 10th at 6 AM, PST. However, you have until June 11th, 11:59 pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for a prize).
Why do we do this: To be inspired by fun DeNami Design creations and also the chance to win mini shopping sprees on the DeNami Design website!

Prizes-what's in it for your: DeNami gives away a $20 gift certificates to their website to TWO people who comment along the hop!  Be sure to comment as you go to enter as many times as possible.

You should have arrived from the blog of Greta Hess.  If you get lost along the way, hop back to the DeNami blog to find your way back to where you want. 

Not a surprise but the new chicks were extremely popular at the W. Springfield show last weekend.  We sold out of the chair chick, the coffee chick, and the cupcake chick.  I met lots of great DeNami lovers and hope a few stop by during the hop to have a chance to win a gift certificate. 

I had a hard time picking between the sports chicks, armchair chick, Mimi's boyfriend surfing, sailing, space stamps, etc.  I looked at the cruising chick, tank chick, cars, penguins (which I think are boys), and even the farmer.  I finally decided on......the fishing chick.  I have fishermen in my family so I hope to get good use from this stamp.


So here is Mr. Fishing Chickie.  In my mind, a day fishing or sitting by the water is great way to relax. My plan all week was to match it with the Sea Friends set but, what do you know, I don't own it.  Guess I'll have to place an order on line when I was just standing in the most wonderful exhibit.  Instead I used the sailing boat from the Under the Sea set.   

The cloud paper is something I picked up at Michael's.  The blue is a shimmery glossy paper and the clouds are embossed and covered in textured fluff.  The waves are cut with a Fiskers edge punch and the grass is patterned paper torn for an uneven edge.  The boat and chick were stamped on white paper and cut (as close as I could) then mounted with foam tape.  The sentiment is from A Muse and was stamped on the cloud paper.

Thanks for stopping by.  The next stop is Jennifer Harris.

And while you are traveling through the hop, you'll find Tenia Nelson's blog.  She's the guest artist, and has the cover spot, in the current edition of Stamper's Sampler "Take Ten". Congratulations.
