Patties New Year Blog Hop

Welcome to the first Patties Challenge Blog Hop.

If you have arrived from Linda' blog, you are in the right place. If not click here to go back to the beginning.

Pattie has supplied all the DT's with a new year image, and I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else did with theirs.

My card ended up nothing like the initial idea I had, but a fun card in the end. And it can be used for almost any celebratory card (anniversary, congratulations, new year...)

I decided to use lots of pink - and bright pink at that. I go through stages with colours, and that seems to be "my" colour at the moment.
I had to use lots of bling - all the cardstock is metallic. I coloured the champagne in pink, and the class with grey and silver. I then used glitter glue over the pink of the champagne and ribbons.

Pattie has recently expanded her images from what started with the adventures of Pattie and her cat Allie, has grown into a variety of different images, including birds, flowers and more. Be sure to pop around to the blog and store...

Hope to see you participating in more challenges, and just for stopping by and leaving a comment, I'd like to offer a $3 gift voucher to use at Digistamps 4 Joy.

I know Pattie has some yummy candy for a special winner at the end of the blog, and you may find a few little goodies along the way on this hop.

Thanks for looking, and your next stop on this hop is Theresa's blog. Stop by and leave her some love... and enjoy the rest of the hop.

Hope to see you around Blogland soon...

Love Mel
