Hodge Podge Shop Blog Hop!!!

Hello my lovelies, Today is our first ever Blog Hop at The Hodge Podge Shop and I am very excited abou that! I would like to start off by saying that we have a very special guest designer joining us! We were all blown away by this guest designer when we first saw her art, it is amazing!

Here is what our monthly blog maven had to say about her!

We were all blown away when Linda shared with us the card her 10 year old daughter, Jessica, made and we just have to share it with you!Jessica is 10 years old and she is very creative! She loves making cards with her mother (our design team sister), Linda. She plays the saxophone in an orchestra and loves gymnastics and horseback riding. She sounds like one busy little girl, doesn’t she?
Looks like we have some competition, don’t you think? When you swing by Linda’s blog, don’t forget to leave some love for Jessica too!

Now here is what I made.  I took this wonderful digi of a barn and used my photoshop program to color it in!  I then took letter to spell out harvest on down the side and some twine on the bottom!!  It was my first time coloring with photoshop so please be as honest as you want when commenting!!! 

Our theme this challenge is Thanksgiving/Autumn, I thought nothing makes me think Autumn more than a cold day, with greyish/blue skies and an old barn holding the fruits of the harvest!  Hey, that's where my roots are!  Make's me wish I still lived in the country!!!  HPSchallengeblog is also have a month long blog candy give away so be sure to look for that while you are there.  Also please feel free to enter the challenges, they run for 2 weeks and you can win some awesome digis!!!

And now, on with the rest of the hop: You should have started at the Hodge Podge Shop blog, but if you didn't that's ok, Just continue on your way until you complete the circle! 

And will end at the Hodge Podge shop

There will be a winner at every stop along the way! Each DT girl will have a random winner of one of the beautiful Hodge Podge Shop images. Plus, some of our girls are offering blog candy, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled!
And don’t forget that the Hodge Podge Shop has moved! Make sure you update your bookmarks! The new address is: and this month, all images are priced at just $2.50 each!

I think the barn looks authentic. I would have no idea where to begin in coloring in PhotoShop (maybe a tutorial in the making?) LOL Love the look of your blog, I have actually been here a couple of times already but got distracted checking everything out!
