Western Blog Hop & Challenge

Yee-haw, we are going back to the old west this week at Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges and having a western themed blog hop and challenge.



The blog hop started at Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges and if you came here from visiting Lawren (a.k.a. Pearl Hart, one of the only female stagecoach robbers in the American west), then you on the right track.  Your goal is to pick up a letter at each stop on the way, unscramble them to make a two-word phrase and when you get to the final stop, which is back at the challenge blog, you will get your final instructions.

The blog hop runs until August 15th so you have plenty of time to participate and be in the running for the wonderful prize for this blog hop, which is the new Freddy Goes West mega set from Daisy Doodles Store.

At the same time we are having a challenge.  We want you to make a card and one other item with a western theme and enter it at Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges between now and August 15th for a chance to win a $5 gift certificate to the Daisy Doodles store.  As you can see, I have made an invitation to go with my card.

Next you want to mosey on down to see Monika (a.k.a. Poker Alice, the best known female poker player in the old west) and collect another letter.  Before, you go, make sure you leave a comment so we know you were here.  If you haven't figured it out yet, the letter you need to collect from my blog is D.

I am going to enter the card in the following challenges:

Mami Doodles - Anything Goes.
Paperplay Challenges - Anything Goes
Stamp-n-Doodle - Anything Goes
Stampin B's Design Team - Birthday
Oh La La Creations - Birthday
Dutch Dare Card Challenge - Anything Goes
