SCH First Anniversay Blog Hop and Candy!

Today, in addition to announcing our weekly challenge, we are having a blog hop at Sugar Creek Hollow as part of our first anniversary celebrations.  All the designers have a giveaway for a winner chosen randomly from the people who leave comments on their blogs.
 My Blog Candy!
Sugar Creek Hollow Anniversary Candy!

There will be a grand prize winner chosen from the people who leave a comment on the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge blog. 
Blog Hop Grand Prize!:
Tracy wasn't able to send us a photo of the prize because it is safely packed for a house move but she did tell us what it is.

3 sets of clear stamps from Inkadinkado
1 Ranger ink pad in Vintage Photo
2 packs Vintage die cuts
3 bundles of crinkle ribbon
The blog hop will run in conjunction with the challenge from 8:00 am EST on Saturday, March 19th to 12 midnight EST on Friday, March 25th.  Comments left after the deadline will not be included in any of the draws.  Winners will be announced on each blog and the challenge blog on March 26th.

To be eligible for my giveaway you must become a follower and then leave me a comment telling me which stamp in the Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe is your favorite.  In addition, if you'd like you can tell me what types of stamps you might want to see added to the Sugar Creek Hollow line of stamps.  Don’t forget to leave a contact email in case you are the winner on my blog.

In addition to all this, Tracy, the wonderful and generous owner of Sugar Creek Hollow has a freebie for you to pick up for one week only when you go to the challenge blog during the blog hop.

Hopefully you have arrived here from Dawn’s blog but if you are lost, here is the order of the blog hop:

Donna (you are here)

We look forward to hearing your comments and seeing your creation entered into our challenge.  Your next stop is Marsha’s blog.

Now for my card for this week's challenge "Anything Goes" I was given the Daffodil image to work with! I love this image and elected to try my hand at a twisted easel card. I have seen these on several blogs and really wanted to give it a try, what a fun card this was to make!!

I actually got some decent photos so I am just going to share them and let you scoot along to your next stop. Don't forget to join as a member and leave me a comment about your favorite SCH image. How many SCH images have I used in this weeks card?

I love your easel card, and the soft yellow of the daffodil is so pretty! My favourite stamps in store are the insect tiles, a little bit vintage but still very versatile.
