ABC BLOG HOP 3rd Anniversary


Gosh I have been poorly, not crafted in nearly two months and not blogged at all, wonder if I was missed at all.

I cannot believe that my little challenge blog is 3 years old, we have gone through some changes in this time and the wonderful Emma is currently running it for me until I am well enough to take over. Thank you to all friends whom have been and are supporting me through this difficult time.

You should have come here from the main blog and your next stop will be the delightful Claire. As you will see some of the sponsors have given the design team members images and materials to work with. My good friend Lacey (whom I design for) has kindly donated a $15 voucher to her store


where you are able to purchase the materials I used in my card.


I hope you enjoy the hop x

challenges -

Stamp and create - ribbons and bows
allsorts - free and easy july
secret crafter - here comes summer
Charisma - ice cream colours (strawberry chocolate and cream)
