DeNami Lovely Layers Blog Hop

Welcome to the DeNami Design Lovely Layers Blog Hop!

DeNami July Blog Hop


Hopefully, you've arrived here by way of Karen Larkin's blog, My Life. If so, you are on the right track! If not, you'll want to head over to the DeNami blog to start the blog hop at the beginning. (And remember, if you get lost along the way, you can always head over to the DeNami blog to get pointed in the right direction.)

This month's blog hop is all about LAYERS!! Hop along for some great inspiration and comment along the way for a chance at some free DeNami products! Here are the details:

When: The blog hop starts on July 10 at 6 AM, PST. However, you have until July 11, 2011, 11:59 pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for a prize).

Why: To be inspired by beautiful frame creations featuring DeNami Design stamps and also the chance to win mini shopping sprees on the DeNami Design website!

Prizes: DeNami is giving away THREE $20 gift certificates to their website! They'll be giving away one gift certificate to a random blog hop participant (DT members not eligible) and then they'll also be giving away TWO gift certificates to TWO people who comment along the hop!


Well, without further ado, here is my layer-full card (7 in all) for today's hop:

My DeNami Owls Petit Four set plays a starring role. I had such fun watercolor painting these little guys and then layering them up. And the pennant banner was a hoot to put together!

Before you hop off to your next stop on the blog hop, be sure to leave a comment here

It's hard to have a blog hop on a day when Blogger is being a BUGGER! I've been having such trouble commenting today, in general, and I'm glad I finally got thru to your comments page. :) What a cute seven layer card! Love those little owls, and the pennants, too. So glad you are playing in another DeNami blog hop; they're so much fun! Hope things are going well with the visitors. ;)
