Happy Birthday with added bunting!!

Good morning blogworld,

It's a special day over at MAWTT where it's our 5th birthday (or as close as can be got!).  Now I know I'm having a major Mojo crisis but I couldn't let this go without joining in on the massive blog hop our wonderful boss lady Hazel has arranged!

So the hostess for this week is the lovely Susan and the theme for the challenge is buttons, bunting and birthdays - so any combination of any of those three things is acceptable!

With this challenge, there is a bloghop going on with a massive amount of prizes up for grabs - pop on over to the blog the see all the goodies on offer!

You can do either the challenge or the hop or both if you like - but you have to follow the theme or the rules for which ever one you are entering.
Blog Hop Rules.

To be eligible for the Prizes you must visit all the blogs and collect a letter from each.  Then email Hazel at with the word you have made with Blog Hop Word in the Subject Line.  You must send the word to us to be in with a chance of winning!!!! 

Each DT Member will announce their winner on their own blog from the comments.

So you should have arrived with me from Jessie and I'm last on the list!  But if you haven't arrived here in the correct order you should pop back to the challenge blog and the full list is there for you to work your way through.

This is my card for this challenge, as you may have guessed it was for a special little persons birthday last weekend!

I used:

Digi image:
coloured with my Copics
computer generated sentiment

BoBunny - Ambrosia Collection

LaLa Lands banner

Anything else?
Ribbon, pins, button from my stuff

So not only can you win a prize on the challenge blog - for completing the hop - I've also got an added prize on my blog for one lucky person who leaves me a comment.  The prize is these stamps:

So any guesses yet which letter is mine??

Happy hopping,

Hi Dressies, 

Welcome to our surprise birthday blog hop and challenge.

Today is the very talented Wendy’s birthday, for those who don’t know Wendy is the owner and artist behind All Dressed Up.

All the team would like to wish Wendy a very happy birthday and thank her for her amazing images, and for everything she does.

We normally have our new challenge on the 15th, but as today is Wendy’s birthday we wanted to do a surprise birthday blog hop, along with our challenge.

Firstly the challenge: the challenge theme is anything goes as long as it features one of our images or digital papers. Here is my card for the challenge:

I used:

All Dressed Up - Love to shop
(great value for money - you get the three girls together and individual images as well)
coloured with my Prisma pencils.
Papers: (it's a Bo Bunny pad, not sure which one tho as I've put it away!)
Kaisercraft clear stamps - Today
Ribbons from my stash.

As an added  bonus (as I got the details of the blog hop a bit confused!) here's the card I made for Wendy!

I used:

Digi image:
All Dressed Up digi - it's not exactly the same (where did I find the image I wonder??) but this is the closest.
coloured (not very well) with my Prisma Colour pencils
Crafts Too embossing folder
Nestie oval and fancy oval dies
Distress Ink with a computer generated image

This is such an easy theme and we cannot wait to see all your fantastic entries, the winner will receive 3 images of their choice from the Store

Onto the blog hop, below is a list of the dressy girls for you to hop around….we have a very big team here so you have until  1st July midnight GMT to hop round them all.

At the end of the hop two random Dressy Girls will pick someone who has visited and commented on their hop card to receive 2 images of their choice from the Store.

Happy hopping

The winners of the hop and challenge will be announced on 3rd July here on the blog.
The challenge and hop run until Midnight GMT 1st July.

We cannot wait to see all your creations, why not stop by our Facebook Group and share them there too.
Happy Crafting

Having a little break

Hi blogworld,

Well it's Monday and I should be here (although much earlier) with my card for the new challenge over at The Cutie Pies challenge - which this fortnight is 'A Cute one for Dad' theme and sponsored by Bugaboo.

Pop on over to the blog for all the details and to see the fab DT inspiration cards.

Now those of you with eagle eyes will have noticed that this post is short on something - which would be the card!

I'm not going to whinge and whine on a lot as I know there are people out there dealing with much worse things than my loss of inspiration.  But that's where I am right now, I've lost all interest in crafting, everything I do I pick apart and I'm not good company.

So, I've very kindly been given a break by the big boss ladies at both The Cuties and MAWTT, which means you won't see me for a little while.

Maybe a break and playing with some stamps or paper or dies might help.

So, for now, I'll say see y'all soon,

Good evening blogland,

It's inspiration time over at All Dressed Up where there are new images for June.  Aren't they just adorable?

3 Little Summer Girls 

Best Teacher ever

Cheeky Monkey 

Prom Princess

I choose Prom Princess to make up into a card and this is it:

I wasn't quite sure what sort of card it was - so it is sentiment-less!

Don't forget our current challenge theme is Bling it up and you could win 3 images of your choice and all you need to do it use an All Dressed Up Image with some bling. 
Also don't forget to stop by our Facebook Group to share your All Dressed Up creations & chat to fellow crafters.

Apologies for the lengthy absence, my heart just isn't in the crafting at the moment.  Nothing seems to go how I want and I'm not happy with anything I make, so I'm having a little break.

I'm sure normal service will be resumed shortly,



A challenge, or two:

Crafty Calender Challenge: Petals and Pearls

Inkspirational: Clean and Simple
