Firecraker Designs by Pamela- BLOG HOP

Hi friends,
Today I'm joining the talented ladies of Firecracker Designs by Pamela for July's Blog Hop! This is a circular blog hop, so that means the beginning is wherever you start. You'll know you've reached the end of the hop when you arrive at the place where you began hopping- get it, got it, good :) Now, if you're here from Shelly's blog, you're also on the right track! FYI: The official start time of this Hop is Friday, at 8:00 AM (EST). If you arrived early, please be patient as all the links may not be live yet.

This month, the DT was asked to play along with this sketch:
Here's my card:
I flipped the sketch, but kept the same basic elements :) I used the digi stamp Spring Walk for my card, colored with Copics. I cut out the butterfly & cut along the wing to fold it forward a bit so that it looked like it was really in flight. I lightly sponged the sky & added liquid pearls for the little butterfly trail. The greeting "Hello" comes from the Clearly Greetings stamp set.

If you picked up this weekend's free digi, then you know all about the excitement for Boni's fun digi stamps---> Bonibleaux Designs. So I thought I would also create another quick project using the Ken digi (which is free until the 19th):
This is a quick & easy Honey-Do List pad for the Hubby ;) All I did was create the circular sentiment "Honey-Do List" & then added Ken in the middle. I printed it out & colored him in. I matted it with shimmer blue CS. I adhered that to a metal clip & added a notepad.
Here's a closer peek:
Don't forget to leave some love along the way cuz there is a prize involved and we don't know which of the DT members is the hostess with the mostest ;) I don't even know, which makes it even more fun! Hope you'll play along with the sketch and if ya do, be sure to link it to Pamela's blog. Pamela will announce the winner on HER BLOG-so please stop back to see if you are the winner!

Now, keep hopping along to Karyn's blog to see her sketchy goodness! 
Thanks for peeking & enjoy the hop!
