January Blues Challenge and Blog Hop

I Got The Blues!  This happens to most of us after the holidays. There is such a build up to the holidays and with all the excitement and celebrating, we tend to feel a bit down when it is all over.  So, we are giving away extra prizes this challenge.   Welcome to our January Blues Challenge and Blog Hop at The Crafter's Cafe.  So, along with our normal challenge prizes, there will be four hop prizes as well.  A total of six prizes in all.

We will start with our regular challenge.  Our theme is For a Male. And we have two sponsors for this challenge.  These will be randomly chosen winners.  First is Moon Flower Digi Stamps.  The prize is $10USD or 10 Euro worth of digi images.

Next we have Angie's Cards and Digis.  Winner will receive 3 images from the store.

Now onto the blog hop.  There will be four winners for leaving comments on each Design Team members blog with the words "January Blues".  This is the special password that has to made with each comment to be eligible for these prizes:

1st prize - Gina K stamp set Spoon Me
2nd prize - Gina K stamp set You Make Me Smile
3rd prize - Stampendous - Vintage Ladies
4th prize - Stampendous - Charmed Art

The commenting prizes will be shipped worldwide, so everyone can enter.  Here is the order of the blog hop.

I love this card, so striking and beautifully co-ordinated. I'm commenting wearing my Cardz 4 Guyz hat at the moment, I've already got the hop bookmarked to follow my way through when I've a bit more time, so I'll pop back and comment again then!
