It's a Small World After All

Hello, my darlings!  Are you all ready for the Olympics?  I know I sure am!  I've got my USA shorts washed and my mini flags ready to wave. =D  Well, as you may be aware, Sassy Studio Designs' current release is all about showing pride in your country.  Now, unfortunately, we can't have images for ALL the countries.  I know Lindsay would love it if she had the time.  However, we do have SIX gorgeous images to show you.  So, welcome to the Sassy Studio Designs July Release Blog Hop!  (You should have arrived here from the Sassy Studio Designs' challenge blog.  If you just happened upon my post, you can go there to start the hop and not miss any stops!)

It is my honor to introduce you to Mexico Honey.


Now, when I think Mexico, I think fun, bright colors, sunshine, dancing...  I know the colors I used aren't Mexico's colors, but I just had to bring in some splashiness and fun!  =D  I hope you like it!  My papers are from DCWV, and the image was colored with Copics, then enhanced with Stickles and Glossy Accents.  The sentiment was printed on my computer, and the gems are from my stash.

Want to know how to win some images?  Well, there are TWO ways.  The first way....complete the blog hop and leave a comment at every stop! Two lucky winners will be picked from among the hop stops to win one image.  Cool, huh? Want to win ALL SIX images?  There is a challenge to enter over at the SSD Challenge Blog. Just create a card showcasing something about your favorite country and link it up!  You have a week to enter the challenge, so I really hope you can play along and win these fabulous images.  Before you get started, though....you should finish the hop!  =D  Your next stop is the very talented Soma.   I've listed the entire hop list in order below, just to make sure you don't miss any stops.  =D  Have a great time hopping!  Oooh, and don't forget!  We'll be having a LIVE CHAT with the DT and other SSD fans at our Party Blog tonight. 7PM Pacific, 10PM Eastern.  (That's 9PM here in the Central Time Zone.)  Hope to see you there!
