Mo & Zee's Carnival Blog Hop


Clowns, Fairy floss, sticky fingers, squeals of delight and of course complaints of sore feet near the end of the day... Where are we?


THE CARNIVAL!!

Hopefully you have just hopped on over from Jen's Blog.  If you've just popped on by to say g’day and want to join us on the super carnival hop then you’ll want to START HERE 



Zoe from Make it Crafty and Mo from Mo’s Digital Pencil, came together to share the delight and fun of The Carnival. To celebrate - the two fabulously talented teams have come together for a massive blog hop to offer you plenty of inspiration when playing with these images.


Along the way you will find balloons with a letter in them. Write down the letters as you go because at the very end we want you to guess what the saying is!

There will be THREE grand prizes randomly drawn from the correct answers PLUS there will be hidden prizes along the way so make sure you leave some love as you hop along!

Now we know this is a super big hop, but we wanted to make sure you would get LOTS of inspiration! The hop will be open until the 28thApril so you will have plenty of time to come back each day with a cuppa to soak it all up! (Just don’t lose the letters you have been collecting!)

We would like to thank our fabulous sponsors, Mo’s Digital Pencil, Make it Crafty, Stamping Bella and Quixotic Paperie for providing the fabulous prizes for this grand carnival hop!

 I have used the Candy Cart from Make It Crafty and Angelina's Balloon from Mo's Store. The sky has been drawn using our Teamie Annika's fab tutorial here.  I probably got a little carried away, lol.




Here's a close up of Angelina's Balloons and the Make It Crafty Candy Cart.

And those gorgeous leaf flourishes available from Make It Crafty.


Make sure you leave a comment for a ‘possible’ chance at winning some hidden treasure and don't forget to note my letter "A".


And...... before you go Mo is offering for the duration of the hop the following image for $1.  All proceeds will be split between the Make a Wish Foundation in the US and the UK.


Ingredients:-
Image Candy Cart by Make It Crafty HERE
Image Angelina's Balloon from Mo's Digital Pencial HERE
Lasercut Flourishes from Make It Crafty HERE
Tim Holtz Crackle Paint
Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink 
Medium - Copics 
Paper by Daisy D's, had it years 
Magnolia Doohickey Die and Tag Die
Sentiment Magnolia

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:-

Colour Create - Pink/Blue/Brown



Next on the hop is the fabulous Maria. Have fun and Happy Easter!
