Blog Hop, Rewards, and a give Away Oh My!

Hey everyone! Lots of information to pass on to you today! First of all the July Squigglefly newsletter was sent out last night and I want to let you know that beginning this month, Squigglefly will be rolling out Squigglefly Rewards. For every $15 you spend in the shop, you can get a free Squigglefly image, and here are no restrictions on which images you can pick as your reward - you can even pick sets! How cool is that?!

Also don't forget that all this month Squigglefly is donating half the sales of any image in the "animals" category to the ASPCA! What a wonderful organization to help, and what a fun way to do it!

The really BIG news today is that the Squigglefly Blog Hop has begun! It lasts today and tomorrow and there are prizes on some of the blogs and Squigglefly is donating a prize too. Today Christy kicks things off at her blog Christy's Zaney Creations! So get your hopping shoes on and go see what Christy's done!
Oh! Wait a second! You didn't think I'd forget about showing you MY card did you? Plus today's card give away day here, so be sure to leave a comment. I'll have random.org pick a winner from the commenters to win today's card.

I used the April Showers girl I used yesterday, but this time she's sized for a card instead of an ATC. I am stuck on this red, white, and blue color scheme lately! I colored her with these copics



I added crystal effects to the puddle and the rain drops and added some white heart shaped brads in the corners. The paper is from Stampin Up.
Thanks for checking in, and now go hop to Christy!

Great colouring, I love the water effect in the puddle, and the sun shining behind the words. All it needs now is a rainbow. I've had great fun with the blog hop today, I was really an eager beaver and bounced all over the place. I think I have them all though. Such fun. Looking forward to tomorrow's hop, and to see which colours you will choose on tomorrows card.
