A Blog Hop with Crafty Sentiments

Hello there... sorry I'm so late today and not in such a good mood too as had news that my cousin who was just three years older than me was killed when he was run over by a car today.. .. such a shock for everyone ..

.. anyway couldn't sleep and then I remembered that I hadn't posted my card for the Crafty Sentiments Blog Hop as today we have our monthly release.

... such gorgeous stamps being released this month again with the theme of Pirates and The Seas and to celebrate we are having a blog hop where you can also win two of the new stamps if you hop along with us. Just leave a comment on each of the DT Girls blogs to let us know you have visited.


So if you are hopping along with us you should have arrived from Lorraine, but if not, then you must go from the start which is HERE. Your next stop on the hop is LISA.


For my card, as you can see I used this gorgeous image Beach Ball which I had so much fun colouring with my promarkers. Quite a simple card, the paper was a freebie in a magazine and then I just finished off my card with some of my new twine, a charm, card candy, sentiment, a flourish die cut and two pretty flowers which lucky me I had received in a swap from the lovely Karen.



Some Challenges
Papertake Weekly - ANYTHING GOES
Simon Says Challenge - BINGO (Die Cut, Free, Glitter)
Ladybug Crafts Ink - SUMMER FUN

and another challenge, this time at the DAY 14 Crafty Ribbons Pure Inspirations Blog where they are holding a Crafting For Gold Event. The theme for this day is GLITTER and I have glitter all around my card and on the image as well.

Thank you for looking everyone and big apologies to the hoppers for being so late.
