Its Blog Hop Time

Welcome to my blog, i hope you enjoy taking part in the Crafty Boots Challenges as much as i do!

The theme at Crafty Boots Challenges this fortnight is ‘Anything Goes’.  You can join in the challenge as normal but there are 12 extra chances for you to win a prize by joining the first ever Crafty Boots blog hop!

If you are joining in the hop you should have got here from Emma M’s blog.  If you haven’t blog hopped before it is really simple, just start at the Crafty Boots Challenge blog and hop through the design team blogs in the order set out on that page.  Each of the design team members has a word or two for you to collect which will reveal a message at the end.  Once you have collected that message email it to to be entered into the draw to win the prize of three digis of your choice from Hope Jacare Doodles.  You must also become a follower of all the design team’s blogs (and Claire’s) to be eligible to win the prizes
Here is my card using my choice of digi images from the Hope Jacare Doodles website. Of course it had to feature some element of pink in there, although my initial idea was for monochrome!

Don’t forget that myself and each of the design team members has a prize of candy up for grabs, this will include a sample pack of the fantastic new Crafty Boots Deluxe card along with a few other goodies.  Be sure to leave a comment on each of our blogs and follow us to be in with a chance of winning our candy!

My word for the secret message is:


Your next stop isFaye’s blog.

The deadline for both the Anything Goes challenge, and the blog hop (and candy) is Sunday 11th December at 12 Noon (UK time).

Who's a naughty blogger then?

That would be me then!

I just have no idea where time goes, over the past few months my life has changed in many ways, some for the better and sadly some for the worse! These changes have really had an effect on my ability to create much at all!

Being part of the Crafty Boots design team has meant that at least when the whip is cracked by Stephanie Emma then i get my backside into gear and make something!! Obviously this is what i need so the more people who hassle me the better!!!

So what have i made then?

This was a small decopatch trinket box and my first use of my new spell binder dies! Strangely enough there is no pink on show, the box and the following frame were my DT entries for the 'Autumn' challenge

The next card was my entry for young at heart, i just love this little girl and she is one of the stamps from lily of the valley. I think my God daughter Isla will be getting this for her birthday at the end of the month as it suits her temperament well i think!

So thats it for the time being anyway, need to get the ok from the DT boss for anything else to go on here! lol

I will to my best in future to be a better blogger, i need to give myself time and permission to let myself be creative even when it feels like its at the bottom of a very long 'to do' list.

Take care all and watch out for the next Crafty Boots Challenge on Monday!!
