Whoo Hooo....well today is the day, I am so excited....this is the very first blog hop I have been involved in... If you have come over from Sally then you are on the right track..if not, why not start at the beginning at Brenda's Blog .
This hop has been organised to celebrate the fact our sponsor Sir Stampalot are moving to a spacious new shop in Peterborough
There is lots of fun planned and some super prizes. The first prize for the challenge which the estimated value is £160 is a Sizzix Big Shot (wow how fab is that!!) with extended cutting platform, plus dies including two of the fabulous Sizzix Bigz dies which cut boxes and shaped cards.
There will also be two runners up prizes for every stop of the blog hop which include stamps from all the best companies such as Hero Arts, Penny Black, Stamps Happen, embellishment kits etc., etc.
So In order to be in with a chance to win these amazing prizes, please join in Brenda's challenge.
The challenge and blog hop will run for two weeks closing at midnight GMT on 13th February 2010.
The challenge theme is:
Your project can be a card, box, scrapbook page, whatever you choose and the theme is open to interpretation, moving home, kinetic card, vehicle or as simple as a dangling charm as long as it represents movement.
Just a few rules you need to follow for your creation to be included in the bid draw:
1) Your project must be linked do Mr Linky at Floral Fantasies
2) You must include a link to Brenda's challenge post and Sir Stampalot
3) You may enter more than once, providing second or subsequent entries are a different type of project (i.e a card and a scrapbook page, not two cards)
The Blog Hop
1) Pick up a letter clue at each one.
The clue you need to pick up from my blog is the letter V
Just a little clue to help you on your way - when you re-arrange the letters you will end up with three words and I have given you one to start you on your way:
2) leave a comment on each blog you visit on their challenge/blog hop posts so you can be entered into the draws for those prizes
This challenge and blog hop is open worldwide.
It can also be combined with other challenges but can not be back linked.
So here is my card for this fab challenge:
I have used a Sarah Kay image, and coloured it in with my copic's. When I saw this sentiment in the craft stamper magazine I knew it was perfect for this challenge!! I have just printed it off my computer, and used my binding tool to try and make it look like notepaper. The paper I have used is from "Basic Grey" and I have colour tinted just about everything using "Distress ink - worn lipstick".....the use of a charm is new to me, definitely need to practice that look...and I have added gems and stickles to finish it off !!
Now to complete the Hop you need to go over to Pinky's
Hugs to you all Julia
