Yahoo, it's the first ever Character Cafe Blog Hop and we're sooo excited!

We've introduced our new Design Team and we can't be more pleased with all of their fantastic designs using our New Releases for June.

If you're just finding out about this Blog Hop, and this is your first stop, well, you've started at the end and so I recommend you start with our Design Team Intro and Blog Hop details at The Character Cafe Design Team page of our web site.

You really want to start at the beginning because throughout the Blog Hop, you'll be collecting a code that will get you a whopping 50% off all your purchases from The Cafe!!! Only, you have to have the code in order of the hop so that it will work (sorry, it's not a word as I couldn't chose my discount code!). We've also included a freebie on one of our members blogs so that you all "win" something regardless of the prize draws.

Speaking of the prize draws, let me tell you what you'll win if your name is picked!!!

Our first prize is for 4 Character Cafe digital images of your choice plus our Wedding Bling New Release.
Our second prize is for 1 Character Cafe digital image and the Wedding Bling New Release.

If you have been playing along with us, and arrived here from Steph's Blog, we want to be sure that you'll qualify for our prizes so, a refresher if you will!

The requirements are
- please post a comment on all the Design Team Member's Blogs (they worked really hard on their projects, and I for one, think they turned out GREAT, so show them some love!)
- become a follower of our blog or member of our website (you won't regret it, we're gearing up for some great stuff!)
- if you post a link to your blog regarding our Hop, you will receive an extra entry
- post a comment here, on our blog to let us know you're playing and so we know how to contact you if you win!

We will be putting all your entries into our cat tree (lol... worked before!) and my daughters will be making the draw on Tuesday morning at 8am EST, so you have until then to play along! Once the names have been drawn, we will check that you've met all the requirements and voila, winners!
Please note that the discount code will only be active until Tuesday, June 23, 2009, so shop while it lasts!

We hope that you've enjoyed your tour and wish you all luck! We've had a great (yet hectic) time putting this all together for you and our Design Team all worked hard right along with us. We'd like to say thank you to them for all their patience, understanding and dedication to making this a wonderful start to our term with them {hugs}.

A few notes...
We will be having our New Releases on the 20th of each month going forward.
Our Design Team Members will be posting on The Cafe Blog (here) once a week starting soon! More details on this will be released shortly after the Blog Hop :)
Starting next Friday, our Design Team will be participating in Feature Friday, where all of our DT members will post cards featuring The Character Cafe images (Fridays are great, aren't they?!).

Well, have fun and see you Tuesday for the BIG DRAWS!!!
