Special Design Team Birthday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Design Team Birthday Blog Hop 7/30-7/31

If you just happened upon this hop, please be sure to go back to the start at http://vintageheartfeltdesigns.blogspot.com/
I’m sure you’re all familiar with a standard blog hop - a long list of blogs, and you hop from one to the other leaving comments...Well, this one has a twist. This should be a super efficient hop for you, the hopper...

We’re linking up design team blogs instead of the individual bloggers blogs... So you only have to make 8 hops, and you’ll get to see about 57 cards! This is our first time doing this, so we’d love to hear what you think!

Some of the design teams will be offering up blog candy, and if you’d like to be eligible for the grand prize, you must follow all the design team blogs and comment on all the posts.

The grand prize is a $20 gift card to A Crafters Haven, online craft store, sponsored by Laverne, the owner of Crafter’s Haven - http://acraftershaven.net/

Some additional goodies will also be awarded....And some of our stops will have some great candy as well! Quick Quotes is offering a $450 prize at their stop. In order to be eligible for the grand prize, you need to follow all of the blogs, and comment on each DT post in the hop, and leave a comment at www.craftycardgallery.blogspot.com. The grand prize winner will be selected randomly from the comments there.

So here’s the complete lineup and how the hop works....
The 8 members of the Vintage Heartfelt Blog, with Design Team Lead Denise, have all posted their cards here: http://vintageheartfeltdesigns.blogspot.com/
From there, you’ll link to Design Team Lead Kristy’s blog where her 6 members have posted their cards: http://www.scraptasticalkreations.blogspot.com/
Then you’ll stop by Design Team Lead Gill’s blog, where her 9 members have posted their cards: http://creationsbygillm.blogspot.com/
Then you’ll stop by Design Team Lead Lisa’s blog, where her 9 members have posted their cards: http://www.blogquickquotes.com/
Then you’ll stop by Design Team Lead Theresa’s blog, where her 9 members have posted their cards: http://www.thescrapbookingqueen.com/
You’ve only made 5 stops so far but you’ve seen a lot of cards!
Your next stop will be Design Team Lead Kassidy’s blog, where her 9 members have posted their cards: http://www.inkingitupcrazy.blogspot.com/
You’re nearing the end at your stop at Design Team Lead Jalisa’s Blog where her 3 members have posted their cards: http://www.patchesofpink.com/
And your last stop, if you’d like to be eligible for the grand prize, is Jennifer’s blog
http://craftycardgallery.blogspot.com/2011/07/final-stop-in-design-team-blog-hop-731.html

DT Favorites, Link-Up Party, and New DT Member

First off, don't forget to link-up in this week's link-up party at the bottom of this post.

Thank you so very much to all of you who linked up this week. The entries were all so wonderful that it made it extremely difficult to pick our top 5 favorites and also my new Patches of Pink Designer. All of my designers, my hubby, and I picked our top 5. Each time an entry got picked as #1 it received 5 points, #2 - 4 pts, #3 - 3 pts, #4 - 2 pts, and #5 1 pt. Then, all of these points were summed to figure out who the top 5 entries for this week were, so here they are...

CLICK HERE TO LINK UP.

The winner of the Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge is...

Krista from Krista's Paper Cafe.

Congratulations!!

Please email me within 2 weeks at patchesofpink(at)gmail(dot)com to claim your prize.

Now for the personal announcement.

Well, I can now tell all of you why I have been so sick for sooooooo long...I'm pregnant again! I was really sick with my first, and I hoped that this one wouldn't be as bad. But I have been quite sick every single day without fail. It starts as soon as I wake up (or sometimes wakes me up during the night) and ends, well never. LOL. Last time it lasted for 4 months of my pregnancy. I can only hope that it will end a little sooner this time. Keep me in your prayers! Also, we are going to Disney World this week. Any suggestions for me along with specific things to do and ways to deal with a rambunctious toddler while there? Please leave a comment.

I know that I am extremely blessed, and we are very happy that God has entrusted us with another of his children. Hugs!

Red, White, and Blue Design Team Day and Link-Up Party

Don't forget to link up your own project at the bottom of this post!

Happy July Everyone! It's time for another Design Team post. Sadly, we are missing a couple of our design team members, as our lovely Andrea has had to step down due to life circumstances -- We will miss her very much -- and Valerie is not feeling very well. My DT ladies are wonderful crafters, and I can't wait for you to see what they created.

Theme: Use Red, White, and Blue
My designers were challenged to make anything using the colors red, white, and blue. They came up with some pretty awesome things for you.

For this week's Link-Up Party, you can link up anything you have been working on recently or that you create specifically for this post, but it must utilize the colors red, white, and blue!! I'm so interested in what everyone is making and I'm always inspired by your creations. 

Here is my entry. I was inspired by the fact that my family and I are currently on vacation in Florida and we are constantly surrounded by Disney stuff.  Also, with limited supplies, it was a super quick and easy card to throw together with the help of a really cute Mickey sticker set from EK Success.

Don't forget to give these ladies some love!!! Just click on their pictures to go to their sites.
