Happy Birthday Through the Purple Haze Challenges!! Anita, Fiona, and all the girls are putting on a week long party with lots of prizes!!


This is Day 6 of the birthday celebration week and every day this week we have a birthday blog hop for you.  We will be finishing up on Sunday, but the challenge blog will be going for another week to let everyone have a chance to participate in the activities. Anita and Fiona are giving away blog candy for commenting so be sure to comment to be eligible for prizes.

I hope you will visit Through the Purple Haze Challenges every day this week. There will be a short blog hop each day to help us celebrate. In addition to our usual weekly prize, we are giving away a blog candy prize for COMMENTING!!   YOU MUST USE THE WORD  BIRTHDAY SOMEWHERE IN YOUR COMMENT!! So please leave a comment on each daily challenge blog. The more comments you leave the more chances you have of winning the blog candy prize for the WEEK!
And all of us participating in the blog hops would love to see your comments along the way for each day of this birthday week! And some of the Design Team girls are giving out a prize of their own just for commenting on their blog this weeklong party!!


I will be giving out a prize of digi images from one of the week's sponsors, too, just for commenting on my blog this birthday week! There is a small catch though. In your comment, you must use the word PURPLE!!  haha, now that's not too hard since the challenge is THROUGH THE PURPLE HAZE CHALLENGES!!  I will randomly select a winner from all the comments left on my blog this week and will pick the winner on July 23rd so you have plenty of time to comment!!  DON'T FORGET TO USE THE MAGIC WORD....(SEE ABOVE)!!


When you enter our Anything Goes challenge, you will be so glad you did!! Each day of the week, we are being sponsored by a different company. So there are 7 sponsors with 7 prizes given out!! How wonderful is that??? And one of our sponsors is giving away a free digi image to every one of our entrants. So don't miss a day or you miss out!!


Today, Saturday, we have Tattered Lace as our sponsor!  I hope you will stop by their online store and have a look around.



 
For my card, I used the Tattered Lace Oriental Crane Die set and the Everyday Sentiments set. The Oriental Crane set comes with two cranes of two different sizes and a cattails.
For the setting sun, I just cut a circle to use as a mask and sponged Memento Inks over the masked area to sponge my background. After I lifted the circle mask it was stark white, so I sponged some yellow ink over the circle area and just placed my larger Crane and three Cattails on the background layer.  I finished off with a brown glittery ribbon in the lower corner. 
 
The "Especially for You" sentiment is part of the Everyday Sentiments set by Tattered Lace. This set has about every sentiment you can think of.

If you started hopping from the beginning, you should have arrived here from the very awesome AnitaIf you have randomly found yourself here, you may want to start at the beginning of the hop so you don't miss anything!! The entire list is below.

From here, you need to go visit the wonderful Wendy.
