Make It Crafty Blog Hop

Woo Hoo Peeps,

Sooooo excited, I have been asked to join the Make It Crafty blog hop as a guest.  Gosh all these ladies are so talented and little ole me is tagging along.  If you have arrived here from the fabulous Sheila's then you are on the right track, if not then you need to start at the beginning at  Zoe's Make It Crafty Blog, and Zoe's card is absolutely awesome!

Make It Crafty are today revealing some absolutely gorgeous new images that you will be able to incorporate with all of your favourite characters. They have been designed for ‘Spring and Love’ so they are perfect for Valentine’s Day, Anniversaries, Weddings, Friendships and more.

Hope you'll all play along and there is a big surprise at the end and lots of inspiration from the design team.

I have used the Ivy Swing and Petals and Pailings Images.  Sooooo gorgeous.  I love the way that you can incorporate these images with all your stamps.  I have used a little Bildmalarna stamp, think that's how you spell it, lol.


Materials Used:-

The Ivy Swing - Make it Crafty Image
Petals and Pailings - Make It Crafty Image
Medium - Copics and Prisma Pencils
Papers are from Bearly Mine Designs
Lace Doily from Bizzy Becs
Nesties and Flowers from stash
Sewing machine for stitched panels



BLOG HOP DETAILS

How to win the big prizes

Along the way you need to look for puzzle pieces. They won’t be on every post so you need to keep an eye out for them. The puzzle pieces make up one of the NEW images. At the end of the hop there will be an email form where you can submit your answer. This is so that your answer is private.

All the correct answers will be placed into a draw in the order that they are received and random winners will be chosen.

Extra Prize

Place our blog hop blinkie on your blog for more chances to win! Make sure you comment on every post as we will randomly select a commenter from a random post and if they have the blinkie on their blog they will win a choice of one rubber stamp and one digi stamp from the new collection.

Over $200 Worth of Prizes to be Won!!

1st prize - Rubber Collection (Peaches of Plenty, Petals and Palings, Daffodil Dell, Ivy Swing)

2nd prize - Whole Digital Collection (10 digital stamps)

3rd Prize - Four digital Stamps from the collection

The hop will end Friday 24th and the main winners will be announced Christmas Day!
