Welcome to the Lacy Sunshine Rory Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Lacy Sunshine Rory blog hop

 Today we are celebrating the launch of some of Heather Valentin's new RORY digi images

As you hop along the blogs please comment on each participants blog and keep your eyes peeled to look out for letters that are hidden on the Sunshine Girls Blogs, collect all the letters as you go and at the end unscramble them to decipher the hidden word
Send an email to Aud ( danmoose@aol.com)  with the word to be eligible to win the fabby prizes that Heather is offering

The hop is starting on the Lacy Sunshine facebook page
so if you have arrived at my blog and wish to take part in the hop please start back at the main page

The digi i have used for this Rory party hop is called Rory Chimney Sweeper and can be found in the store HERE

I have coloured this adorable image with the following Copics Pens
E00, E37, E53, E55, B01, BG07, BG32,  C1, C5, R20, YG41 and YG45

Here is my Rory Project, I have added 3 photos as the card can be displayed in 3 different ways


 I made one of these cards years ago (displaying it like the top photo)  but after visiting Norma's blog recently where she had made her own version and shown hers displayed like in the bottom two photos I decided to make another one. 

I have adapted my measurements using A3 card (I can make two out of 1 sheet) as I wanted my card to be larger than 4 x 4 inches so I could showcase Heather's gorgeous image better

I have also used the following ingredients 

Papers from Clare Curds 12 x 12 paper pad 
Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle nesties
Sue Wilsons foliage dies
Sue Wilsons Daisies and open daisies dies 
 Our Daily Bread borders dies
Cheery Lynn Butterfly Die
Craftwork Cards card candi

 I hope you like what I have created and now want to see what my team mates have made with their Rory images so please pop on over to LENE to check out her Rory project

Here is the line up just in case you get a lost along the way and remember we are from all different time zones so remember to hop back in case a post is not showing

Julie (ME)

Remember we are having a scavenger hunt as part of this hop so you need to collect my letter along with the others hidden along the way so you can decipher the hidden word

My letter for you is
