Let's Move Blog Hop

Welcome to Digistamps4Joy's New Beginnings Blog Hop. You have arrived at Charlene's Blog in Chilliwack, B.C. Canada

Digistamps4Joy is having this blog to introduce you to our new blog.  You will be starting with our Current Blog (Mel’s blog) and work your way through all the DT members blogs until you get to our New Blog. Here's a list of all the blogs and order of them in case you get lost.

Charlene (that’s me)
Desire (your next stop)

If you have gotten here from Carol’s Blog (Bunnysbitsnbobs) then you’re on the right path. If you just popped in, you’re going to want to go to the Digistamps4JoyCurrent Blog.
For the hop I got to play with a brand new digital image called Toy Train. I have a friend who’s daughter is pregnant so I decided to make a boy card just in case she has a boy. You can find the image in our new store here.
Nana Vic’s is my sponsor for this blog hop, so I combined the new Toy Train image with her Nana Vic’s Baby Gift Box. I decided that a double easel card was the best kind of fold for these great images.

I colored my images with Prisma Schlar Pencil crayons and oms. I used silver metallic gel pen on the edge of the gift box and on the train. I also used gold metallic gel pen on the stars on the train. The yellow cs is from SU, the Red polka dot dp is from BoBunny and the train paper is Thomas the tank, but it was a piece left in my stash and I don't know who makes it. I didn't add any embellishments as I felt that adorable train was embellishment enough.

Nana Vic has kindly donated a $12 Gift Voucher as a prize for my blog. You can find all of her incredible images and sentiments here. Thank you so much Vickie for your generous sponsorship, it is very appreciated.

So this now brings us to the rules for the hop. They're very simple and the rules are the same for each blog on the hop:

1) You MUST be a follower of all of the blogs on the hop. There are
    only 10 (9 DT Members and the New Digistamps4Joy Blog). You do
    not need to be a member of the Current Blog (Mel's), as it will no
    longer be active after the hop.      
2) Everyone entering MUST leave a comment on each blog (we will be
     checking.). I'm not going to give you a question to answer, but you
     do need to make a comment.       
3) Everyone entering MUST be a member of our new CDAC-DS4J
    Group at . 
     If you are not a member of CDAC it is free and very easy to
    join. Just click on this link and it will bring you to the main
    page. Don't forget to come back to the Digistamps4Joy
    Group also.        
The Blog Hop will run from  6 a.m. CAT (Central African Time) April 25th, 2012 - May 9th, 2012 . I will post my winner here on my blog on May 10th, 2012.
Your next stop is Desire. Thanks for popping by and joining our blog hop. Don't forget to leave a comment.

Hold a sec Charlene, while I get my sunnies...Your card is so bright, fun and totally boyish. I adore the colour combinations that you've put together and the little train is oh so cute. You've displayed both digital images beautifully on your double easel card, and they do work well together. Now I'd better get hopping and check out all the other fabulous places in your 'Blog Hop'. Good Luck to Digistamps4joy and to all that are now running the site. *Big Hugs to All*
