Challenge #52 - Birthday Blog Hop (Must use ProMarkers)

This week over on I ♥ ProMarkers, we’re having a Blog Hop to celebrate our 1st Birthday which will also be our weekly challenge. I hope you will all join us in our first ever Blog Hop, with a Birthday themed card.

We’ve got prizes from Whiff of Joy and Letraset and some bead pins from me, for the lucky winner and also, all the DT girls have a little prize to give to someone leaving a comment on their blogs. The Blog Hop will end at 6 pm on Tuesday 15th February and the winners will be placed on the challenge blog, along with our next challenge, on Wednesday 16th February.

Here’s a picture of my prize.

The pins the lucky winner receives, may differ from the ones shown in this picture, this is just to give you an idea of what they look like.

And here's my DT card.

I used my Calibur and Grande Nesties to cut the shape of this card. The image is from Karen's Doodles.

A close up of the image. This was actually my card to my hubby, it was his birthday last week, he runs a garage, so thought this image was perfect!..... lol.

For a chance to win, just leave me a comment and complete the hop around the DT blogs.

Here’s the sequence of DT blog, you need to hop around them in this order and leave your comment on each one.

Then go back to I ♥ ProMarkers and leave a picture of your project with Mr Linky.
