SQUEEAAL!! It's a Halloween Blog hop!

Happy Weekend!

I'm so excited - Kitty Bee Designs have launched a bunch of amazing new images and to celebrate we are having a blog hop.  If you're on the hop - hopefully you've joined me from Tracey's blog

As soon as I saw the images I knew which one I had to have and I know when you see it you're going to love it too.

I've got a cute little Ghost Giraffe, it just cracks me up.  I reminds me so much of my children when they try to play hide and seek, but only cover their faces and you can still see the rest of them!  This little guy has thrown a blanket over his head, covered himself in talc and hoped for the best!

I've teamed it up with some craft card and some new to me but old season Stampin' Up Papers!

You all know how a blog hop works by now - visit all the other fabulous blogs on the hop, go bankrupt deciding which stamps you want and win amazing prizes!

There will be 3 random winners who will each win a digi of their choice from the new release - hmmm I wonder if I can enter???

Every comment left on the blog hop gives you a chance to win, multiple comments on the same blog don't count but the more blogs you comment on, the better your chances are to win!  If you want to check out all of the new release images click here to be taken to the Etsy store.

The Hop ends Sunday 7th September at 11pm Hawaii time. (10pm UK time!) and the lucky winners will be posted on Tuesday 9th September.

And if that wasn't enough Ruth is offering a 15% off coupon to her Etsy store (click here) for Labor Day.  Code is 'Labor15' and runs from Friday 29th August through to 5th September, which can be used on on both clear stamps and digi stamps. (Thanks to Kel I now know all about Labor day as it's not something we have in the UK!)

Your next stop on the hop is: Taniaj - can't wait to see what she's made!!  The full hop line up is just below!

Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoy the rest of the hop and good luck!


Here's the Hop Order just in case:

Kitty Bee Spotlight Post - Super Cute Owl Alert!


I'm here with my spotlight post for the Kitty Bee Designs blog.

This could have been my challenge card for our current "In the Garden Challenge" as I couldn't decide between two cute images - so what else could I do? I coloured them both and made two cards.
 (What's that? You've not linked your card to our challenge yet?  Come on... closes on Friday!  You need the link? Click here!)

I've chosen to use Plant Pot Owl and teamed it up with some lovely purple papers. In fact pretty much every card I've made over the last week has been purple as I bought a new pretty paper stack. Yep poor me I had no paper at all in my house, nope none and had to buy some more!  (OK so that last sentence may be a little fib - but you know where I'm coming from as you were probably behind me in the queue!)

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

Stamp and Create - Anything Goes
Paper Nest Dolls - Anything Goes
Bunny Zoe - Summer Colours

Anyway thanks for looking - hope you have a fab day!

Aloha Friday Challenge - In the garden.


I've been so terrible with my blog recently.  I been making wedding invites for a couple of friends which turned out beautiful (even if I l do say so myself!) But as I've been procrastinating over them I've put my normal crafting to one side. 

Happily I've made quite a few cards recently which I've got lined up to show you all.   I've also had a sneaky peek of some fab new images from the fabulous Ruth at Kitty Bee Designs.  I ♥ them and can't find wait to play with them.

This evening I'm sharing my card for our In The Garden challenge at  Kitty Bee Designs.  I've used Peek a Boo Kitty!

My teamies have made some lovely projects so why not stop by check them out and link up while you are there!

Hope you like it - thanks for stopping by!
