Welcome back


This week we are still running our   BABY BLOG HOP, which you can find here. Remember, you need to Hop, find the poem and then make a baby card and enter it in the challenge -go on, you're a woman - you can multi-task!  There LOTS and LOTS of prizes to give away too! (see below the Winner's information for more details).

Now, on with the Winners

As usual Hilde picks the Winners  of Challenge# 21

OMG, there were so many great shaped cards, this was really hard to pick
                         We have two very generous sponsors this week (therefore, two                            winners) and they are:

All dressed up, winner gets two images as their prize:

...and the winner is......
All dressed up prize : # 42 :Tip Top

An amazing card, so much detailing, love the flowers in the pot, who wouldn't want to receive a lovely card like that

and

...and the winner is....



Milk Coffee prize : # 29 Lucy G 

Gorgeous colouring, love the look of the card and the simple but yet intricate design...just beautiful.

Thank you Dragonflies!


In addition, some of these sponsors have generously also given the Design Team images to work with, so as you hop around you will see various images used from various sponsors. 

The way you can hop is by thinking of numbers! Go to each Design Team's blog, read the clues and THINK OF NUMBERS while you do this! Remember - our theme is BABIES, so what do Babies have related to NUMBERS?

There may be a small amount of poetry in there........but I am sure you will be able to work that all out! You collect a word or maybe a whole phrase from each blog along the hop and you need to make sure that
  1. You leave a comment on that blog to be eligible for that blog's prize
  2. You DON'T mention the word/phrase in your comment!
Once you have completed your hop send an email to me (Susan) here with the assembled clues into the POEM  Ten Little (Whoops, nearly...) about BABIES related to NUMBERS! There will be a separate SURPRISE prize for the random winner of this part of the blog!

Please put Baby Blog Hop in the subject line.  

Happy Hopping Folks

Order of the HOP


We look forward to seeing your lovely creations - remember,
  • do the hop for a look-see at the DT's lovely creations
  • make a baby card and enter it in the challenge 
  • do the hop again, collecting the clues along the way and leaving a lovely comment for each of the Dragonflies when you get back to the main blog, leave a comment there too 
  • post off an email to Susan with your entry for the Blog Hop Prize!

Challenge #20 Winner's!

Good Morning Peeps!

What a lovely day it is here! I know, I know, I know - we are in autumn, but for us that is usually the best weather for the year. Blue skies, sunny and warm. Hope you're experiencing a great day too!

On to the winners for our Challenge #20 - remember we have one winner who gets the stated prize from the sponsor and then there are the Top Three picked by a DT member for that challenge who will also win the honour and glory but not a prize. However, if either the winner or the Top Three wish to be our Guest Designers, you need to contact Ina (see the tab above for Winners)

Challenge #20 is a
CARD Challenge: Use a freebie
We had some great entries and I picked up several new freebies myself as a result! 
Great challenge Hilde.

This Challenge has been sponsored by Hilde herself
 a surprise gift as we have chosen to go sponsor free

The winner is:

JKD_Ladies
Hilde says: 
 I love all the elements of the card, the vintage look is just gorgeous as are the colours and choice of images.....


Congratulations Amelia - please contact Judith through the winner's tab above and copy/paste the Winners badge into your blog to let everyone know your good fortune!

Our Top Three this time (chosen by Susan and only in the order they were posted) are:

1. J Atterbury Creations

The paper pieced dress, the attention to detail, the beautiful colouring.....all impressed

6 Leanne

Leanne show's that you don't need a big image to make a great card; this was her first go at vintage too - way to go Leanne!


16 Glenda Akins

I know I am a sucker for green, but this card is just so joyous and happy! And THAT flower! Beautiful!

Well done ladies! Beautiful work - don't forget to copy/paste the Top Three badge into your blog and wallow in the glory that will shine on you!

Now, our current challenge is

...make a shaped card...

You can make it any shape or any size.....but not just plain square or rectangle...
There are some wonderful creations from the Dragonflies - you can find out all the details from their blog posts by going here!

We have two very generous sponsors this week (therefore, two winners) and they are:

All dressed up, winner gets two images as their prize
and 
Milk Coffee, and the winner gets 5 images 


Why not work outside the square (or rectangle for that matter) and make a shaped card for our challenge?  You still have a week to get it in!

Heads Up for our next challenge! It's a HOP!
