My First Blog Hop!! (GD Gig #5)

I have been asked to join the Hanna and Friends Challenge Blog as a guest designer for the next couple months, and I couldn't be more excited. :) Thank you for having me, Hanna and Friends. 
Woohoo!! Our Hanna and Friends Challenge Blog is already five years old. 
We are going crazy!!! 
Happy Birthday to us !!!
So we want to celebrate this day with our 201st challenge and a blog hop party. 
And you can win so many prizes.
First of course the regular prize from Hanna and Friends, when you take part at our challenge called:
We celebrate!
But in addition to that every DT has a little candy on their blog. 
 So, all you have
to do is play the challenge and leave a comment under the post of the
candy, and you could win. :) It's really easy, isn't it?
Have a good time at our blog-hop and good luck.
 Now hop over to
Hanna and Friends for the end.

Alycia - GDT <--- YOU ARE HERE!
I am celebrating the birth of a new baby girl. There are so many baby girls coming or that have recently arrived. My blue Copics are getting jealous. 
I created this card using Saturated Canary's Close to my Heart digi stamp. I colored her up with my Copic markers. The papers are DCWV's Nana's Nursery 'Baby Girl' and the card base is Stampin' Up's Sahara Sand. This card measures 3 5/8 by 9 inches and fits in a business envelope. I like shaking things up a bit with the dimensions of my cards.  
I have blog candy I am offering as well but I guess it's going to be a surprise as I didn't grab any pictures. Oops. It's good, I promise. :)
Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
