Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog DT Card #15 and Bloghop!

Hi everyone, it's already time for challenge #15 at Crafty Ann's and we're having our very first BLOG HOP!
We're celebrating the launch of the Flower Collection of pre-coloured images from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop .
To join in, you need to start at the beginning which is the challenge blog so if you have come to me from there you're on the right lines.
To be in with a chance of winning these two sheets from the new collection, just leave me a comment. The winners will be announced at the start of challenge #16 on 4th June (for my prize and for the main challenge blog prize)

Don't forget to collect the two words you need from me which are: MAKE and PEOPLE
When you leave here, your next stop will be Ann who has some wonderful inspiration for you and two more sheets and two more words.
When you have visited all the blogs, you need to end up back at the challenge blog and follow the instructions on there to find out what to do to be in with a chance of winning the final 5 sheets.

You've probably noticed that there's no card from me today, actually I'm having a little break from things for a while.
Following my beloved Mum's death in January, things have been getting a little overwhelming and I've decided to take some time off to try to sort myself out.
I hope to be back with you all before too long though, and I may be doing some blog-hopping and commenting (who knows?)
Until then, take care blogging buddies and thank you for all your comments and support.
Looking forward to seeing you all again soon

Sketch & Stash DT card #35

Hi everyone, today's card is for the Sketch & Stash challenge, where this week we are being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp and our sketch is by the lovely Lols.

It seemed like a long time since I last used one of the fabulous Mo Manning images, so this is another of the ones that I purchased a little while ago from Digital Pencil Too and is called 'Bye Bye'.

Card Details:
* Image - Mo Manning 'Bye Bye'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - My Mind's Eye
* Sentiment - Digi download
* Everything else from my stash

The gorgeous digi sentiment was one of a few that I downloaded some time ago. Unfortunately, whilst trying to organise my PC recently, I lost the copyright notice and I now have no idea where it originally came from, so if you know please drop me a line.
Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog to see the other DT cards and find out who our lucky winner was last week.

Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog DT Card #14 and some news!

Hi everyone, it's time for Challenge #14 at Crafty Ann's where the theme this fortnight is 'Anything Goes'
Be sure to read to the end of the post for some exciting news

I'd like to thank all of you who have been joining in with us lately, we seem to be getting more entries with every challenge.
Unfortunately I've been unable to leave a comment on some of the foreign blogs as my PC just shows their blog text as little squares. I've tried using a different search engine (which worked for some of my fellow DT) but, alas, no joy for me. If you are one of those people please accept my apologies and also my thanks for continuing to join in with us each fortnight.

Card Details:
* Image - Crafty Ann's 'Aga', Stamping Boutique's 'Chair' & Magnolia's 'Kitchen Tilda'
* Colouring medium -Promarkers
* Papers -Papermania & K & Co
* Sentiment - Greeting Card Factory CD
* Everything else from my stash

I asked Ann to create this range cooker as I thought it would be perfect with all those little cooking cuties and how right I was! She has done such a superb job of designing both this and the little armchair that I asked for, so THANK YOU ANN!
I couldn't wait to use this and had such fun creating this little kitchen scene, I love it and I hope you like it too. I used some subtly patterned Papermania paper as wallpaper behind the range (not sure it shows up too well in the photo)
I know how lots of you love the freedom of an 'Anything Goes' challenge theme, so I hope you manage to join in with us again this time.

And now for that special news......
Don't forget to join us for the next challenge on 21st of May because we have our very first BLOG HOP to celebrate the launch, you'll have to wait until the 21st for that bit - but there are prizes to be won on every blog so don't forget to put the date in your diary!
