Designed to Color and Doodle Dragon Studios BLOG HOP!

WELCOME!  i'm so glad you're here!  

HAPPY 4th BLOGAVERSARY, DUSTIN PIKE!  :)

you've reached the Designed to Color and Doodle Dragon Studios collaborative blog hop!  prepare to see lots of cute little froggie critters along the hop, leave comments along the way, and grab some of these totes adorbs digis while you're at it!  the talented Dustin Pike has generously provided the Color Crew with these fun little Fairy Frogmother digis - they're super fun to color, and they've arrived just in time for SPRING!  :)  (yeah, it's been spring here for a few weeks, but it sure doesn't feel like it in South Jersey!)

we're hoppin' with the very talented Doodle Dragon Crew and i'm about 2/3 of the way down the hop list, so if you've arrived here from the brilliant Charlotte, then you're in good shape!  :)  if not, then you'll want to head on back to THE BEGINNING so you don't miss a thing!  be sure to comment at each stop along the way because there will be TWO prize packages given away to our lucky winners!  you must follow the rules (and pay attention - some of us want you to answer a specific question, rather than just leaving a comment).

so!  i saw this little fairy froggy girl chillin' on this mushroom,
and knew i had to color her up!  here's a close-up of my image:


but since i seem to have a thing with wings, i wanted to zoom in
a little closer to show you the deets (click to enlarge!):


and hey, my pleats don't suck!  *a little pat on the back*
here's the full creation:


i've been yanking out some of my older supplies (like, a year or more), and incorporating bits and pieces into my recent projects.  yep, that's part of the de-stashing process.  ;)  i'm not very consistent with it, but i'm making a concerted effort these days.  here's my supply list!

and that's all she wrote!  :)  so here's my question for you... if you could ask this Fairy Frogmother for ONE CRAFTY WISH, what would it be?  leave a comment with your answer below, then mosey on over to visit Ginny with her rockin' creation!  :)  we wrap everyting up on Thursday, April 25th at midnight CST (that's 1 am EST), so you have plenty of time to have fun hoppin' ('cuz that's what froggies do!), and  winners will be announced on or before April 29th.  GO GO GO!  have fun!

here's our full hop list, just in case...

  23. Great card. My wish would be to learn enough to one day be considered talented enough to be a DT for a blog.

  24. Wow, your wings are very cool, so much detail in them. Your colouring with pencils is great, I'm not so good at that.

    If I could have one wish granted it would be that I had more time to create. I have been much better at organising myself so that has helped but it's never enough time in between chores, work etc

    Love Mandy xxx
