CLP Birthday Blog Hop


Today we are celebrating CLP's birthday and sending congratulations for being a challenge blog for one full year!  Looking forward to inspirations for the second year and so happy to be a part of it!!  So to celebrate we're having a blog hop full of pure gorgeousness!

One random blog hopper will have $30 to spend at Gurlee Girl Craft store!  Make sure you make your rounds for a higher chance of becoming the winner!! 

For my first challenge with CLP, not only have I used the absolutely gorgeous sketch that Chelsea has given us but paired it up with a Belles 'n Whistles Stamp.  They are generously sponsoring this month's challenge so I decided to use this little cutie called "Smile". 

I've jam packed my card so full of goodness and I've almost covered up the sketch but I promise you all the pieces are there.  LOL!!

Here's the sketch for May so would love to see you join us!  You have a whole month and any stamp can be used to qualify!  How easy is that?!! 

The blog hop starts today and ends May 6th at midnight.  If you are just joining now and would like to go to the beginning click here:

I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop!  These ladies have made some amazingly creative cards!!  You have a month to work on your project so would love to see it!!

My Last Secret!

YES IT'S TRUE! I'm so excited to share that I'm a member of Magnolia Down Under Challenge.   Yiiiippppeeeeeeee!!  I know in the last number of posts of new teams that I'm on I carry on about how fabulous the ladies talent is on each the new teams I'm on but jeepers!! I can't stop saying it!!  I am so lucky!! 

Anyway, so on to my first card created for the MDUC blog! This week's challenge is:


I've used just a smidge of lace and stapled it on to my card and my "ribbon" is Tim Holtz's Filmstrip Ribbon.  It's a small small piece but technically it works.  LOL!!  I hope I've helped inspire you for this Magnolia challenge being my first card and all.  If you are wondering what the rules are please check them out at the MDUC blog.  Would LOVE to see you there!!  Hugs!
