For the Girls ~ Townscrapper Blog Hop

Candy Now Closed

Good morning friends and fellow crafters and welcome to Week 1 of The Townscrapper's BLOG HOP.  The Scrapettes are going to showcase some of the new and exclusive Victoria Case images.  Long post today so be sure to read to the end.

Here's my card using Lola the Hockey Star.  I was so excited when Phebe asked the illustrious Victoria Case to design this image.  My girls love playing hockey and this image is perfect as more and more girls are playing hockey these days.  It is a versatile image too because it can be used as congrats, thank you cards for coaches and also for scrapbooking those sports memories.  Scrapbooking material with a hockey theme is geared mostly for boys so this image SCORES big ~ couldn't resist ~ with me for my girls who are my hockey stars.


I'm entering my card into a few challenges as well:
  1. Stamp Something - Something Layered
  2. Cute Card Thursday - Touchy Feely
  3. Quixotic Paperie - Heavy Metal
  4. Crafty Angels - Favorite Things
Image was coloured with Copics and the papers plus rockin' charm (my favourite type of embellie) is from The Townscrapper.  Phebe has such a great selection of awesome charms that add that extra perfect touch to all your papercrafting projects.  Go Team Go sentiment is 1 of 3 that coordinates perfectly with Victoria Case's hockey images AND yes there's also a boy hockey image available: Evan the Hockey Star

Now back to the HOP: You will notice a recurring theme during the HOP because we've decided to combine the BLOG HOP with our weekly challenge so you can double your chances to win some Victoria Case images.  We'd love for you to create something with a GIRLIE Theme.  You have until midnight EST on Saturday, April 24, to link your creations on The Townscrapper Blog.  Of course one random lucky challenge participant will win a Victoria Case image of their choice along with two  HOP winners for Week 1 of our HOP.  Week 1 challenge and BLOG HOP winners will be announced on Monday, April 26.

Your next and final stop is our uber talented Scrapette Melanie but just in case you've missed someone along the way, below is the list of hoppers to visit for this first BLOG HOP week and be sure to leave a comment on each blog because two lucky random commenters will win one Victoria Case rubber stamp of their choice.  Plus Plus Plus: There will be one grand prize winner at the end of the 2-week HOP but we're going to keep you in suspense and show you the grand prize next week ~ hehehe.





MARIA (me)


And if you've read to the end of this post, I have a little surprise too ~ I have a  prize this week for one lucky commenter on my post.  I'm giving away one Lola the Hockey Star stamp with Go Team Go sentiment plus a few embellies.  One comment per person only please and you have until midnight EST on Saturday, April 24 to leave a comment.  Winner for my prize will be announced on Monday, April 26 and I will ship worldwide.

All the newly released images are in stock and available for purchase from Phebe.  Phebe can be reached by phone at 519-882-0623 or via email at info@townscrapper.com.  If you can't make it to the store in Petrolia, Ontario (Canada), remember that Phebe also ships worldwide. 

Happy Hopping and good luck SCORING some sweet Victoria Case images!
