Craftalicious Launch and Blog Hop and Blog Candy, Woo Hoo!

Hoppy Friday Everyone,

Boy are all the Craftalicious Design Team excited today, with TODAY being our L.A.U.N.C.H, Woooooooo Hooooooo! Now not only is it our launch with a prize for this week's challenge theme, but we also have a BLOG HOP too and, yes could there be any more, yep, Blog Candy from each of the Design Team!  Woo Hoo again!  So don't disappear as details of the blog hop are at the end of this post.

Our very first challenge over at Craftalicious Challenges is an easy and fun one, we want to see your creations based on the theme of "NEW". You can enterpret this as you like, New Baby, Wedding/Engagement, House, New stash, New Teacher, anything you can think of featuring "New". Our very first sponsor is "Sew Many cards" and the design team have been fortunate enough to have been given a digi to work with. Here's my card, isn't she cute?

I have used Bo Bunny Design Papers, Fiskars Sunflower Border Punch, Nestabilities, ribbon and bow from stash.  Magnolia/Prima/Wild Orchid Crafts Flowers with star dust glitter and a little diamond glaze for dew drops.  The leaves are quickutz and the sentiment is from Whiff of Joy.
I have entered my card into the following challenges:-

Stamp Challenges - Use a digital stamp
The Secret Crafter - Buttons and Blooms
City Crafter - Button and Bow
Creative Card Crew - Pink and Green
Everybody Art - Summer (love)
