Celebrate Summer..Fourth of July Blog Hop!!

Welcome my Fourth of July Pixie Hopping friends to Pixie Dust Studio!!

You should have just hopped from Suzi's amazing blog.

For my Fourth of July Hop creation I used one of Pixie Dust Studio's newest images from the SteamPunk Collection. This image can be found in the STUDIO and his name is Sir Studio PUNK!! He was super fun to color and switch up into his patriotic hat and coat. I used Prismacolor Pencils to color this fella.

There are a bundle of amazing prizes for the hoppers.
So be sure and leave a comment and hop the HOP until you DROP!!!
You will now HOP to the talented..
