It’s A Blog Hoppy Birthday :)

Picture 002 copy

Yes it’s Birthday time over at Papertake Weekly and if you’ve arrived here straight from the blog then you are in the right place and ready to start the blog hop. If you’ve not come from the blog then do nip over to Papertake and check it all out because there is so much going on today and it would be a shame to miss out.

So our challenge this week was to pick your fave from the last 3 years – that’s a LOT of challenges to choose from - and have another go.

Well I went with Shiny,Sparkly & Special.  But I could equally have gone for Ice Cream Flavours cos there is a bit of a Neapolitan colour combi thing going on don't you think????

So this is what I did.

I used my new H&S stamp which arrived last week and ohhhh they are gorgeous.  I coloured her with Copics and  I sparkled her to within an inch of her sweet life (and yes, I didn't brush the stray bits off which is why it is all over her, poor thing!!)

I used lots of my faves on here, including …..

blooms

…. one all but forgotten Martha Stewarts awesome doily punch. How could I not have used this for sooo long??? Slapped trotters Miss Piggy!!.  I got it, along with the Copics, from my fab friend, the  glam chick that is  Tracy at Dies To Die For. I also used some fab and pretty blooms from the one and only Wild Orchid Crafts and some gorgeous pink heart paper from Pink Petticoat  cos nobody does pink hearts quite like Liz.  The fab Girly Curly sentiment is also from PP.

Ohh I almost forgot that I’d used my brand new Nestabilities ( Beaded Circles) which I also got from T xxx

So that’s my card.
