Party at Going Buggy - The Hop!

I hope you are enjoying the week long party on Enfys' blog! And today it is the blog hop!! En asked me a while ago if I'd like to be part of it - how could I resist?!

And I've made a card too as I don't like to blog without a picture! There is still a card challenge running on her week long party which is bugs - click here to be taken to the post - you have until Saturday 22 January to get your entry in!

I've used a kraft card blank, used some Stampin Up ribbon (tempting turquoise) plus a wonderful stamped image from Polkadoodles which I've coloured with Promarkers. The turquoise and yellow layers are from my stash and the little tiny pearls are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts.

So, onto the Blog Hop! If you've arrived at my blog from Papercraft Inspirations Magazine blog then you are on the right track! All you have to do, is sign up to follow my blog, add a comment to this post and then hop on over to Paul on the Letraset blog!

I am so chuffed to be the letter between these two places - I am a subscriber to Papercraft Inspirations and I do love my Promarkers and Aquamarkers - how did I manage before I discovered these gems?!

Anyway, the letter you need from me is E. Keep it safe! Good luck! And I'll draw a random entry from my blog to win a bit of candy too - don't know what it will be yet but I'll find something!! You've got to be in it to win it!

  • Card blank: Kraft card
  • Image: Polkadoodles rubber stamp, coloured with Promarkers
  • Ribbon: Stampin Up Tempting Turquoise
  • Everything else: My stash
