Crafty Ann's First Ever Blog Hop and Challenge #15

Today is a very special day for the Crafty Ann’s Design Team and all our followers as we are having our very first BLOG HOP!!!

We are celebrating the launch of the FLOWER COLLECTION of pre-coloured images. If you have come to me from seeing Beryl’s gorgeous work you are on the right lines but if not, you need to start at the beginning which is the challenge blog. To be in with a chance of winning these two sheets from the new collection, just leave me a comment.

Don't forget to collect the two words you need from me which are: HELPFUL, THEY.  

When you leave here, your next stop will be Anne who has some wonderful inspiration for you and two more sheets and two more words to collect. When you have visited all the blogs you head back to the Crafty Ann’s Challenge Blog and follow the instructions on there to find out what to do to be in with a chance of winning the final 5 sheets.

Everyone that enters the draw for my two sheets will have their name put in a hat and another member of my family will pull a name out on Thursday 3 June 2010 and the WINNER will be announced at the start of Challenge #16 on the Crafty Ann’s Challenge Blog on Friday 4/6/10.

Good luck to everyone and thanks for visiting my blog.

Before you leave my blog, here is how I made this fortnight's card at Crafty Ann’s Challenge Blog.  I have used Ann’s Octagonal Template for the main card and cut four different colours of Ann’s wood grain backing paper in decreasing sizes and inked the edges with Tim Holtz’s Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink Pad.  The little squirrel image has been designed by Ann and can be bought here.  I have coloured him in with Promarkers and then cut him out with an oval Nestabilities and whilst the image was still inside the die I again inked the edges with Tim Holtz’s Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink Pad.  The flowers are from Ann’s new Flower Collection where the flowers are coloured for you.  I have used various of the different colours to embellish this card inside and out.  The card is finished off with a ticket sentiment from Crafty Ann’s.

This card also fits the following challenges:

Allsorts - Birthday
Sew Many Challenges - Anything goes
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle - Masculine theme
Ooh-la-la Creations - Bright and cheerful

Papertake Weekly - Say it with flowers
