Tuesday Throwdown 300th Challenge Celebration and Giveaway!!!

Happy Tuesday!!!
Today's challenge starting at Tuesday Throwdown is kind of a special one...its our 300th!  How awesome is that!

I've been with the Tuesday Throwdown design team for 4 years now and have loved it so much!  It's so exciting to hit such a milestone with this fabulous team!  I have loved the ladies that join our team, both past and present, I've adored being the sponsorship coordinate for almost all of those 4 years I've been on the team.  And I greatly appreciate their patience with me every single day.

But the thing that keeps this challenge blog going is you, our followers.  Our participants!  The ones that come back every week and join in our silly challenges and leave wonderful comments on our blogs!  So, to celebrate you, we are doing a blog hop that is filled with fun giveaways!  If you're doing the hop, you should have arrived at my blog from Debi's!  Of course, you can always find the full blog list at Tuesday Throwdown if you get lost :)

While we are doing a blog hop for this 300th celebration, we do also have a new challenge starting with our fabulous sponsor - The Paper Shelter!
Our challenge this week is Fairies and Fantasy!
I've chosen to use The Fairy of the Cookies image and did some super soft light water coloring.  I've been deep into the preparation stage of getting ready for my first ever craft fair on July 4, so my free time has been super scarce.  I wanted to keep my card simple and quick but still highlight this adorable image and watercolor was the perfect medium to use.

I added a little sparkly embossing paste through a stencil across the background for some fun fairy twinkle and then added my sentiment across the top.

Now the fun part about this blog hop, as I mentioned before, is the prizes!  Leaving a comment on our blogs will get you entered into the giveaway.  Each of us has something different as a prize, so be sure to stop by everyone's blog!

My prize is provided by the always amazing Sami Stamps!!
Sami has offered up a $12 gift certificate for the winner drawn from the comments on my blog!  How awesome!

So, to enter, leave me a comment below!  If you become, or are a follower (either though the Google Friend Connect or Bloglovin option) , leave a separate comment!  That gives you 2 chances to win!

This giveaway/blog hop will be open for one week!  So you have until 11:59 pm on Monday July 4 to enter!  The winner from my blog will be announced the next day on Tuesday July 5.

The next person for you to visit along this hop is:

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful week! <3
